Question about Televison & Video
I believe the problem with your TV is that it has one or more bad capacitors. I had a similar problem with my TV where it would power on and there was no picture. I took the back off of the TV and found that the two bad capacitors were bulging at the top. The capacitors provide power to the light bulbs. I bought two new, better quality capacitors and replaced the bad ones with them and the TV worked immediately. If you go to you tube you'll find videos that show step by step instructions on how to perform the replacement. All that you'll need are a soldering gun and solder and the new capacitors. I bought mine at digikey.com but you may be able to get them at Radio Shack. The capacitors have the model number on them.

Testimonial: "Thank you for responding. i removed the the back cover and didn't see any visible damage to any of the capacitors, but there is a slight whiny, high pitch, fluctuating sound coming from one individual capacitors. Could it be the culprit?"

1. Check to see if the TV power outlet has power. Plug a lamp or something small into outlet to test for power. If there is no power in outlet, check your circuit breakers or power fuses.
2. Check to see if you have pressed the power button on the TV or on the remote controls. Check to ensure batteries are placed in remote correctly.
3. Check the setting of the picture brightness or contrast.
4. Check to ensure you have proper cable connections from your source going into your TV.
5. Check the volume settings on the TV.
6. Check to ensure the mute button is not pressed on.
