My TV won't turn on, although the satellite system, surround sound and dvd player all work. It worked this morning, then this evening, it will not come on. I have checked the outlet and it's working just fine. I've tried unplugging it for a while, and no luck.

Depending on the model TV, there may be a switch on the back to turn the speakers off, or there may a choice on the audio on-screen menu to turn them off. Not all sets allow you to turn the speakers off, but you can always mute the sound, although this sometimes leaves the word "MUTE" on the screen to remind you. You can also just turn the volume all the way down on the TV. If you're using the AV inputs on the TV with a device like a DVD player, another option is to connect the video only to the TV, and feed the audio to the amplifier providing surround sound. Then the TV speakers won't be used at all.
Is it connected to a stereo or are you using hdmi? The reason I ask is that sometimes when there is no sound it could be due to a loose cable particularly when it comes to using optical cables. Have you tried unplugging all your external sound equipment including cable / satellite tv leaving the tv unit free from any external sources? If it then does not work (and the mute button is not on) then it is definately an issue with the tv. More often than not it is due to old cables or a loose cable. If the tv works then add in each extra thing like dvd player one at a time. If the sound goes you know it is the cable for that particular item etc.
Since you have a surround sound system, you probably should just bypass the TV's audio.
Connect the red/white plugs from your digital cable box to one of the inputs on your surround sound system but not the Phono input unless the Phono input lists something aside from Phono, like Aux/Phono or CD/Phono.
Connect the S-Video or composite (yellow) video plug from your digital cable box directly to the S-Video or composite (yellow) video jack on your TV.
If your digital cable box does not have a S-Video (4 pins and flat rectangular hole) or Composite (yellow RCA jack) jack and only has the screw/push-on type cable with the pin in it, then leave the remaining connections as-is.
Now switch your surround sound system to the input you connected the red and white plugs to and turn on your TV. You should see picture from the TV, but hear audio from the surround sound system.
Well are you ready for this I hope you can under stand if not maybe I can draw a diagram. Starting with your stereo take the component video out and goto component on the back of your tv to component in then the stereo coaxial in to the digatl audio out on the DVD player then DVD player anntena out to TV anntena in then DVD anntena in to reciever anntena out and Sat cable to reciever. also s-video on Dvd componet to s-video on TV DVD player Audio out to Audio in on TV. Set Stereo to TV and DVD player to channal 3 or do auto scan and TV will work on 3 with the reciever and also TV works with Video 2 I hope this works for you good luck
Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.
