    Same problem here. Happened spontaneously while using it. Procedure to reset password does not work (ie With tv off, hold button on remote and button on tv. Enter new password.) When I do this tv says incorrect password. Thinking V-chip may have gone bad.

Problem fixed. I unplugged the TV for 20+ seconds, then before plugging it back in, I shorted ac plug prongs together with a metal key to ensure complete discharge. Plugged TV back in and used procedure to reset password WITH ONE CHANGE TO THE PROCEDURE.

With TV turned OFF press and hold <CLEAR> button on the remote while pressing <VOLUME DOWN> button on the TV, hold until TV turns on. When the menu appears DO NOT RESET THE PARENTAL CONTROL CODE as the user guide instructs. When my menu appeared it was in the SETUP screen on the LANGUAGE setting. It was set to SPANISH, using the remote I navigated to ENGLISH. Then using the remote I navigated up to GO BACK. Then I navigated to EXIT and hit <OK> button on the remote. All was back to normal.

Dead tv

you can also check cp025 & cp024. Now the problem with this power supply is if you find a problem with one of the following parts the have to be all replaced at the same time, because if one part goes it casuses stress on the other parts. Check the test the following parts tp020 dp033 tp023 (if installed) tp025 (if installed) tp022 (if installed) typically only have 2 of the last 3 installed in this tv. good luck.

Restarting T.V

Sounds like the flyback transformer or the regulator is bad or could be both. There are no user serviceable parts inside of these sets so servicing should only be done once you understand the safty issues concerning the HI voltage and X ray radiation.. call in a pro to assist you. Good Luck
