If you're electronics savy, as in replacing capacitors, open it up.. that's your problem.. one or two of the caps on the power board has gone bad.. most likely a 470uf 25v, which can be replaced with a 470uf 35v found at Radio shack for about $1.29. You can tell if it's bad if the top is cracked open & leaking or just domed out instead of being flat.

    Thank you so much, Szieve! I have two Apex DTCs, both of which had stopped working a couple of months ago. After reading your post, I popped the top of one of them, took a close look, and lo and behold one of the capacitors had a beautifully domed top (versus flat like the rest). I open up the other Apex DTC, and sure enough, yet another blown capacitor. A quick trip to Radio Shack...salesman points me in the right direction...grab a couple 470uf 35v capacitors ($1.49 each)...dig out my old rusty soldering kit...and before I know it, two previously bricked DTCs are as good as new, maybe even better! The hardest part in the whole process was finding my old soldering kit! Thanks, not only for the solution to my problem, but for a new-found confidence! Can't wait for my next project!!

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

The DT250 likely has one or more bad 470uf 25v capacitors. You should replace all four. Look at some of these youtube videos for how do do the replacement.
