Sounds like something is shorted. Don't keep trying to turn it on it will most likely either ruin the Power supply or something else. Have someone qualified look at it. Good luck. Jay

Power Cycles

Most likely A power supply problem, you can try unplugging the cord waiting 3 minutes and retrying, to see, if not the open the back and see if the caps are in good condition, even though it did this last year, could be more a problem now since last 1.5 years ago its was something else. If you don't know how to solder then time to call a repairman.

TV going through channels continuously

Try a reset. Different models do it different ways - but most require either unplugging for 5 - 10 minutes and plugging back in - OR - press and hold the power button on the TV for 20 - 30 seconds. You may need to access the Set Up Menu and perform the RESET from within one of the menus. Good luck!

Troubleshooting con

Make sure that the power cord is plugged in and press Power on the TV and/or remote. Make sure that the correct video input source is selected (HDMI 2, etc). Try another channel; the station may be experiencing problems.

You can also try power cycling the TV, by turning it off & unplugging it for a few minutes. Plug it back in, turn it on and restore settings back to factory defaults. If issues still persist, I would recommend pursuing repairs.

The timer does not turn the TV to the right feed

If the TV timer is set within then it will restart in the same channel as when you connect the power to the timer the whole power is shut down and so the memory is lost on the last attempt. Hence the TV will start back on the default setting unless there is proper back up on the memory.Please check if the TV timer can be reset to solve this issue or the memory must be checked for fault to retain last settings.

Can set up th remote control for this tv with the direct tv cable remote

Here's how to scan for TV codes on your DIRECTV remote

1.Make sure your TV is turned on.

2.Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".

3.Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.

4.While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.

5.Then enter 991, the green light on remote should flash twice.

5b. Press 1 again (it will flash twice again), then you press the power on button at the very top right.

6.Point remote at TV and press CHANNEL UP button. Tap the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly until the TV powers off.

*If you hit channel up very fast, you risk going past the code. Pressing channel down will back it up. I alway hit channel up very fast till the tv turns off, then back it up slowly till it comes back on.

7.When the TV powers off, press and release the SELECT button.

*Note: If the green light flashes three times before TV responds, then all codes have been cycled through. Our remote controls are guaranteed to program to your DIRECTV receiver, however your TV may not be compatible with our remote control.

The TV has perfect sound on every channel except for one of my local channels. When I tune into this one local channel the sound goes in and out intermittently. It only happens on this channel.

TV needs servicing CERTIFIED TV EXPERT HERE, follow this information I provided 3 long solutions to this issue/s Solution 1 Before we start taking things apart, lets try your simple remove power plug routine and power system back up. Also, please try your unit on a few different channels to see if your problem continues on each channel. Your Main Board, Power Board, T-Control Board are suspected problems at this time. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit should power down by itself after you have powered it on. If it does not, then do not be concerned. Let me know if the problem continues. The first link below will bring you directly to the troubleshooting guide if you need to continue forward with the same error. Additional information Failed TV and Monitors: Parts: 2 Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc. Please respond if we have found a solution. 3 When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me

This memory loss issue sounds like a problem with the main board inside the TV. The channel memory should not erase after a power cycle.

You are probably loosing other custom programming like your Display and Audio settings. That is if you had modified something in these menus.

You may want to check to see if this is also happening by making a change in like the Display menu, and then turn the unit off and back on.

The TV has a one year warranty on parts and labor.
