We can't get any channels to tune in with the over the air antenna.

I solved this problem by purchasing an external indoor HD TV antenna. Once I plugged it into the TV, I received approx 20 channels, picture and sound are fine. The antenna that comes with the TV appears to work only when you are located quite close to the source of the TV signals.

TV shuts itself off. ON/OFF switch no longer works.

If your sure the switch is broken, you can remove the switch and directly attach the wires and plug and unplug to turn it off and on. But it sound like that if the switch is broken you have a slight connection and with an ajar it will turn off and on by itself. The good thing to do would be to purchase a push button switch at your local electronics store for between $1.25 to $10.00 depending on what one you would like to have.
if it is remote control you could have what they call a sliver on the circut board to that can cause this to make the tv turn off and on. Best way to check this is to take the remote batteries out and see if the tv still turns off and on. If so replace the switch.

Axion handheld tv. No picture at all.

I have on and if the batteries start getting weak the screen display brightness is the first to stop working. Double check that, if you are on AC power try sliding the brightness control from dim to bright a few times and see if the rheostat has corroded. Those are a few of the quick checks you can try, let me know. Jay

TV Picture & Sound randomly go on and off

A lot of times the dc jack where you plug the power cord gets loose conections after so many times of use,if that is the case the set nneds to be open and the jack resoldered,sometimes is the ac adapter that is intermitant ,try twisting the wire to see if it makes any difference.If your tv looses power when using batteries you might be looking at a broken board.
