This television first started with the picture messing up, think that was to do with the cable connection on the back because I smacked it on the side and the picture straightened out and it was fine. Recently I went to turn the set on and it sounded like it was going to turn on and then it made another sound and would not power up from that point. I have worked on some televisions and installed fly back transformers, but that was long ago. I have tools, soldier iron and volt/ohm meter. I was thinking that I can open the set, discard the tube and this might have a broken connection to the cable but the power going out I suppose I could trace back from the power button. I am leery of discharging the set since I have not done this for so long. Can you instruct me as how I should do this and what to look for or test. Your help would be greatly appreciated

Re: television won't power up
Hi, The set has gone into protection overload status.
You must unplug the power cord for 3 or 4 hours and power it up again.
If the hard reset above does not bring it back to life it needs technical service. There are about 10 sections that would need to be checked to see where the overload conditions are causing the problem.
As a general rule this type of failure is severe and expensive. Typical costs of repair are always over $200 and most often closer to $400.
Common failures are main power supply, high voltage supply, deflection amplifiers and so on.
This is not a user or home remedy type repair. If you are lucky it may be something not so costly, but experience tells otherwise.
Hope this helps.

Reset the player if the device stops behaving
normally. (Keep in mind that rotation sounds and picture issues during
search are normal.) Select the "System" menu from the setup area and
choose "Restore Factory Settings" or a similar option. Allow the device
to restart and then try the disc again.
Insert the disc face up in the tray. If playback fails to
start or if it starts and then stops, wipe the disc with a soft cloth
and try again. Throw out any heavily scratched discs that won't play.
Change the "TV Aspect" to 16:9 in the setup area of the menu
if the picture expands left and right or if the picture size is wrong
and you're using an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cable.
Set the wireless Internet router to automatically allow new
devices to connect to it if the Insignia player won't connect to the
Internet. The player uses only WPS to connect. Some routers
that use different automatic setup protocols won't work.
Make sure that the connection between the player
and the television uses an HDMI cable if you're watching a Blu-ray
movie. Some Blu-ray discs will only play over an HDMI connection. Also,
remember that some Blu-ray discs won't work with PiP
Sorry to hear about your sons bike have been messed up. First you have to check out if the brake works. Pull it with your fingers (brake itself, where the cable is attached). If it squeezes and springs back, there is no probs. Then loosen the cable and check if the brake lever works (use it as if you are braking). It should go down and spring back itself. If it does, there is no probs. In that case all you have to do is to loosen the cable at the brake itself and then re-fit it by pulling the cable with pliers and securing it with the appropriate screw.
These televisions do not come with any cables. It is just the power cord that comes with it, and it is the power cord that You connect to the power outlet and power port on the television. The cables You are to buy to connect the television to Your cable is:
RGB adapter cable( that is if Your cable has the RGB port at the back of it that accepts the RGB cable).
White, Yellow and Red jack cables(a 3 in 1 cable), these cable connects the audio and video of the cable to the television from the port that You connect the cables into. Sometimes, these ports are covered in with a plastic casing to protect the port from dust.
You get a power cord that is used to supply power to the television if Your television did not come with one,
HDMI cables also can be used to connect the television to the cable if the cable has the type of port that supports it.
Make sure everything is connected correctly. Then, turn on the PS3 from putting your finger on the "power button" but HOLD IT DOWN. After a few seconds it will beep at you a few times. Check the TV. If the video OUT settings got messed up somehow, it should now display picture on whatever cables you are using "HDMI" or "Composite" . Hope this helps!
Hi,that is comme from your cable connector in the back off the tv /or its could be the tunner its self having a bad solder where its conecting pinfrom cable in to inside the tunner/pr or try another cable conector,
hope that help you
thank to ask fixya..
only thing I can think of is for you to check your cables... assuming you are using a coaxial cable for the satelite and rca cables for games and dvds, I would recommend trying a different coaxial cable. There is also the chance that the coaxial connection on the tv itself is messed up. you may try buying an RF modulator that will convert coaxial to rca, most rf modulators convert rca to coax. so make sure it does what you need before you buy it. tech guys at store should be able to help if you can't figure it out.
