Re: 12C Power Supply

Power inverters are plentiful on eBay in the range of $25-$100 US and any within that range would satisfactorily supply 110-120 VAC for your set. These items are also available at auto & RV parts outlets.

Check the rated power consumption on the set itself or in the user guide but I doubt that it will need more than 150 watts at 120 VAC.  If the consumption is not given in watts but instead amperes, multiply that number by 120 (for the liine voltage) and the result will be in watts. Any higher wattage that you buy will give you the possibility of using it for things other than your TV.

All later consumer items such as your set are able to deal with the quasi-sine wave output of this kind of primitive inverter.
Power inverters    
Not all items can use this kind of AC; any power tool or kitchen appliance with brushes for the motor will accept this kind of voltage, as well as resistance type of appliances like hair dryers, curlers, etc. If you are in doubt about something you might like to attach to an inverter, listen closely to the device and if it doesn't sound like it did at home, don't use it.  Also if it starts to emit an odor or heats excessively, stop using it.

A very interesting artical to read first:
We unfortunately do not sell these parts. After reading the artical and knowing which power supply you need, I may recommend or go to your local electronic store. Some power supplies are very common and easy to find. Good Luck

It sounds like power supply or could be main board as remote has direct power whenever set is plugged in--standby supply powers that so if the remote has issue at same time the standby which is usually on main power board may have a odd issue.

Have you looked for puffy caps on power board?

Your TV's manufacturer support page(s):

Solution #1 - exercise the manufacturer's warranty -
or even (possibly) the return policy of the point-of-sale store - find your receipt.

Solution #2 - replace the entire power supply as a unit, rather than debug the (analog
electronics = differential calculus of electronic engineering). analog electronics of the
power supply

Solution #3 - if solution #2 unavailable, desolder each suspected component of the power
and individually test components, until the culprit is identified, then replace it.

A\\VOL Model ALTD1902M - Where to Find Power Cable?

POWER: AC 100V-240V at 50/60 Hertz means that your unit has a switching power supply built in which will operate on ANY AC (alternating current) voltage from 100V up to 240V, on either 50 or 60 hertz frequency.

(110V @ 60 Hertz is an USA wall outlet power standard, whereas 220V @ 50 Hertz is the European wall outlet power standard)

So, you can actually use it with just about any line voltage from a standard home wall power outlet, you just need the correct power cable that fits into your unit on one side and into the wall socket on the other.

The 60W power rating is just telling you how much power the unit consumes for operation which means that if you hook it to a 110V power line (USA), it will draw a current of approximately 0,54 amperes (60 watts divided by 110 volts equals to 0,54545 amperes) and if you hook it to a 230V power line (Europe), it will draw a current of approximately 0,26 amperes (60 watts divided by 230 volts equals to 0,26086 amperes).

The switching power supply in the unit has an internal fuse which is rated somewhat above the 0,54 amperes, could be a 0,63 amperes, but most probably it is rated at about 1 ampere or more.

If the specs you listed are correct, you only need to worry about the correct power cable that will fit into your wall socket on one side and into the combo unit on the other.

Hopefully, if the unit is in good health, you haven't wasted your money after all.

TV won't power off and on. There's a flashing red light but TV is non-responsive.

Try disconnecting the TV from the power socket, leave it for few hours and then plug it back and then turn TV on.

If your TV starts working..great..but if it happens again then you might have problem with the power supply board in which case you will need to get it repaired.
