Re: My tv works at my friend house, but doesn't work in...
Sounds strange indeed. All other devices; except the TV works fine with all power sockets at your house!! Just replace the power pin, at the end of the TV power cord and check. There is nothing more to check for you. It it too do not help you, contact any service technician. Electro help

Go into the menu. Go to CHANNEL and press enter. Go to AUTO CH MEMORY and press enter. Press the right arrow on remote to change the signal type to AIR. Go down to AUTOMATIC SEARCH and press enter. Wait for it to finish on its own. You should have all the analog and digital channels you can get with the antenna setup you have connected to the tv.

if it worke at your friends house then it must be the cable or what you are trying to use via the HDMI cable some devices turn of HDMI if it has been unplugged and you have to manually turn it back on itn setting. its a bit hard to do on some as they don't have a scart socket. but if you turn of the device for about half hour and have the HDMI lead in and turn it back on it will reset to HDMI. its a surge protector.
Try a power drain to see if can keep the TV on consistently:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house.
2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors.
3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and
hold down it's power button. Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards
enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product
will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device
that appears to be dead.
If the TV continues to turn off and on after this, it would appear that there is an issue with the TV's power supply as it may be on it's last legs.
look inide your house/apartment for the breakers panel - usually in the basement/ground floor closet for house or in the closet for aprtments-check that breakers are on the ON position-plug another appliance in the same plug (example clock or toaster) see if it works-if another apliance works it is an internal problem with the power supply to your tv-get back to me with the model of the tv
1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use. 2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board.
3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on.
If this doesn't solve the issue, it sounds like your TV's connection between the power supply and the mainboard is defective. If the power supply was shot, you would hear nothing at all. I hope the above step helps.
