Re: will not turn off

It sounds like the contacts on the on-off relay are stuck on. You can tap the top of the relay cover and that will shut it off (releasing the contacts) For a permanent fix, try taking the plastic cover off the relay and clean the contacts with a file (or just replace the relay)

Plenty of Sound, No Picture

You may have to replace the convergence IC's or the lamps. Impossible to say without having a manual inspection. Best bet is to take it in for a service repair..
