My 86 yr old mother has a 36" jvc av/36050 tv that won't turn on. my brother looked at the manual and says he thinks that the sleep timer keeps popping on. could this be the problem, and if so, how do we solve it?? thank you.

If you were to log on to the
manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as
usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer
Instruction Manuals, list
of Dealers for spare part supplies as required.
Just Google the manufacturer's name and
follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's
web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they
charge for the information that is normally free of charge.
press display button & it shows the following 07 NOW 12:20 PM SLEEP TIMER OFF/on ON/OFF TIMER EVERYDAY ON TIME 7:00 PM OFF TIME 10:00 PM • The current channel or AV input (Channel 07) • The current time (12:20 pm) • Sleep Timer status/minutes remaining (The Sleep Timer is off) • On/Off Timer status (Set to turn on everyday at 7:00 PM, off at 10:00 PM) • Each Press of the DISPLAY button changes the display mode: Press the SLEEP TIMER button & set it to OFF
The menu screen does not function the display. Without the original remote or a universal remote that does not have a display button, try unplugging the television for at least 2 minutes or more and plug the tv back in. This should reset the tv display. If the universal remote has a display button, depress the display button until you get the desired display results. Reference the user guide below for the display button.
Is it possible that the input to the TV is still good including cables and cable box or anything? If another TV works from the same input then it may be the TV settings like AV/video rather than TV channels. Check all this out. I hope it is something simple as that. Good Luck.
I think you would have to turn off the sleep timer mode completely or increase its ON time span, say to 4 hours or so
or the lenth of time you have the TV on for. If that does not fix it then it sounds like a STANDBY MODE fault problem.
Hope this helps.
No not sleep mode as in sleep mode it only will turn off power and when the power goes out the sleep mode resets. your problem is most likly in the standby power supply or maybe even in the main supply. If you know how to use a multimeter and about the powersupply circuitry in these sets you should be able to find the fault. If you havent a clue where bto start a tv set is not a place to be experimenting around inside of. Have it looked at by a trained tech
