If you have sound and feel the static on the front screen you have audio and high voltage---I would suggest one simple thing---with back off look carefully in the neck of the picture tube--should be 3 dimly lit lights there --the filaments for the picture tube--are they lit or not?
Rare for this model to have sound and not a picture or brightness on the screen--usually a shutdown circuit will activate.
Let me know what you find or if you have questions.
If the sound goes off too then there are bad solder connections, if it just the picture then the picture tube is getting weak, some times a picture tube rejuvinator can bring some life back for a while.
Without knowing the specific model, I can only venture that somehow the Parental Lock has been engaged. Often to disable/disengage, a password/code of some sort is required with entry through the remote.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
That sounds about right my friend. Those sets do have two tuners and Ive seen the problem your desribing. Unless of course that the microprocessor and tuning circuits are goos also. I would call a servicer if I were you unless yopu know your way around the inside of the tv set as it does have alot of High voltage even when its unplugged Good Luck
