I doubt the cats caused the problem unless the plug was far enough out to make intermittent contact, possbily causing a power spike in the set. It's hard to say from here. However, if you are not getting any picture or sound, it could be as simple as having nothing plugged into the input the set is 'looking' at, such as A/V 1 not having anything connected to it, and the set it 'looking' for a signal there. If you're sure that's not it, then you'll need to have someone qualified to fix it to look at it.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

Turns off when u turn it on


You probably have a bad flyback transformer. This is a common problem for this set. A 32" is worth a check out fee.

Tv powers on but light just blinks and no picture or volume


A blinking power light would indicate a problem on the chassis board located inside the tv. Possibly a failed flyback or other electronic component. Its not cost effective to repair when you can invest in new tv for the same cost as repairing the defective tv. I should also mentioned the danger of dyi troubleshooting of the components inside the tv. I do not recommend unless you are familiar with properly discharging the tube to avoid electrical shock.

No picture


I would pull the cover off to see if the tube and the board on the CRT are not damaged. If it looks ok, turn set on and observe if there is any activity visible at the neck of the CRT (light). Wehn a set with a large tube starts-up, it wil make a fuzzt crackle noise fro the high voltage charge in the tube. If non of this is happening, check main board for cracks. Unit is probably salvageable for point to point solder job, but as far aspart replacement for HV power supply, I would not do it. It is not cost effective.
