    thanks I am pretty sure you are correct, I have some experience on electronics but after the hurricane ( Katrina) I have not done anything but try to regroup the other part of my life. I really really appreciate you getting back with me and you take care.

Hi the problem you are having is going to be one of the most common problems with that type of telly the problem is going to be the flyback transformer needs replacing and also the transistor neads replacing its the one located nearest to the flyback transformer and it will be on a heatsink.
If you are unsure what im telling you then you shouldnt risk the repair yourself as the telly has power stored in it even when its unlpugged it might not kill you but you will get a nasty shock as the voltage is amplified inside the telly so is greater than 240v so dont mess with it unless you are sure what you are doing.
If you are doing the repair yourself then you need to get the schematics so as you can get the test points that you can test using multimeter and osciloscope this telling you whats exactly wrong as a resistor or two could have blown when the transistor failed also the schematics will give you part numbers.
The transistor and any resistors are easy to replace but you nedd to protect the new ones from heat damage when soldering the new ones in you need to dispurse the heat using clips or something similar.
Now the difficult bit is unsoldering the flyback transformer this carrys high volts of electric and will give nasty shock if you dont dispurse the electric charge first you need to short across one of the caps to earth but you need to know the right one.
to remove flyback it regiures alot of unsoldering and resoldering possibly causing damage to the new one during soldering is easily done.
If you are going to get someone else to do the work like repair shop your looking at about £45 uk or $80 to $90 us so you need to think is it worth it let me know if you need further assistance ok

TV won't come back after pushing wrong button on remote.

Try unplugging the TV.. After you plug it back in it may be OK. I had a similar problem were I could not turn on the TV (JVC). The owners manual specified in the troubleshooting section to unplug for 1/2 hour. I left it unplugged overnight and the next day plugged it in and it was fine.

You need a Tech to look at this issue. Too many PCB;s that could cause problem. Also for your info., Prima is no longer in business.

this is some info that some one else had found

get a memory stick( flash drive) and up load their soft ware from their site. I plug the stick into the computor and uploaded the software. I then plugged the stick into my TV on the side. A screen came up and the software loaded on the TV successfully. The red light then turned to green. However, I now have to unplug and plug the TV several times for it to turn on. It works fine but once the TV is turns on, but when I turn it off and it cools for a while I have to repeat the same proceedure off plugging and unplugging

take your tv to technician who can check your power supply, if your power is coming on and off, than a problem is not as big. firstly let him check a ht of a supply constantly, your supply is cutting.
