Thanks for using FixYa. If the TV isn't turning itself on then the fault protection circuit has detected a fault and has turned down the TV. You'll need to check various things to be sure which part is bad. Please check these---

1. Check for signal cables at the back and also try unplugging the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it.

2. Swollen/bulged capacitors on the power supply board-- This happens due to overheating of capacitors.

3. If the capacitors are fine then you'll need to check for connectors on all the boards and also the fans if they are working fine.

4. Make sure the lamp connections are fine and ballast is not burnt.

Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Loud static noise without warning

The audio may be randomly disconnecting or something. I know that when my TV has no signal coming in, that it makes a bunch of loud static.

i lloked up your washer and it is an old belt-drive machine. they were real workhorses, but now kind of outdated. there are not many repairmen who are willing to work on these beasts. the problem is that as one problem is fixed, another might pop up and the repairman will be expected to remedy any future problems...because he touched it. if you can locate a repairman who will work on your washer, if it is in good shape, it would probably be worth fixing

Microwave exploded.

Did it make a popping noise, like a .22 cal pistol? Probably one of the larger capacitors on the power supply blew up.
