Unable to turn tv off

These days its just not cost effective to have a engineer look at a tv,even though i could just be a component costing a few pence thats failed.I would think the tv would come back on if you unplug it.I would then buy a remote power saver 5 socket plug which you can use that remote to turn off the tv and then problem solved.hope this helps.

yes you can replace the input board, but that is fairly expensive. HDMI cables can go bad, have you tried a different HDMI cable? Also try hooking up another device to the HDMI input to see if it might be in the Playstation3.

If i bought a 55 inch tv from walmart how do i get an extended warranty?

Walmart uses a company called N.E.W. National Electronic Warranty. Normally when you make your purchase they ask if you are interested in purchasing an extended warranty.. I think they get in trouble if they dont lol

Whether you have already purchased the tv or not. I would ask someone at the desk in the electronics dept.

You can also call NEW direct at 1-800-WHAT'S NEW (942-8763) or email

here is there website.

P.S. I looked all over Walmarts website and couldnt locate any info on extended warranties..

Hope it helps!!!

Hey jimmyusmc,

As long as the TV was purchased using a check or credit card, this shouldn't be a problem. Best Buy™ stores are generally able to locate check/credit card purchases using the telephone number and name associated with the account, but please keep in mind that they would only be able to do so for repair purposes. Best Buy™ associates are not able to provide detailed receipt information (or even receipt copies) to anyone other than the original purchaser, as per our privacy policy outlined on

With cash and debit card purchases however, we are unable to guarantee that we are able to locate your receipt. Whenever a purchase is made using either of these types of tender, stores may not collect any kind of traceable personal information at the time of sale.

If necessary, remember that you may always contact us directly at 888-BEST-BUY (888-237-8289) or via our e-mail submission form for further assistance:

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Bad Cable Input

Try using your RCA imput to see how the picture looks compared to the tuner picture,is possible your tuner imput is bad,make sure the conector is not loose,the overall picture should look different but not fuzzy all over,using a dvd picture thru the aux (rca)imput should show you the difference.If the conector is loose only it could be repaired but if it is solid the tuner might be bad and it will need to be replaced along with any board it might be mounted to.Let us know how it goes or if you need more information.
