Scepter X32 LCD High Definition telivision. Just turned 2 years old July 20 and we only use it at our summer vacation home. The light is blue on the front and it just clicks. If I unplug it, I can see "Scepter" in red for a minute then it goes blank. Can't change cannels, input or anythihng. The TV only got about 5 months of use in 2 years. Could it really be dead???? Remote has worked horriblky all summer. Very hard ot change channels.

Re: Scepter X32 LCD High Definition telivision. Just
Yes it's dead; the power supply in these tvs do not have much stamina; Due to the fact that their are no provisions for removal of heat. TV does not have enough fans because customers don't like the noise and, the power supply surge caused by turning a cold set on and, off is not addressed by the manufacturer. That is why the sets have only one a year warranty. The choice you have is: repair the power supply or, replace the power supply unless your set is under warranty.

The high voltage spike damaged electronic components inside your tv. Transistors and microchips are very sensitive to high voltage spikes even if they last for a fraction of a second. It can probably be repaired by a tv repair person but if the tv is several years old, it would be better to just buy a new tv. The cost for a new tv is much lower now than it was just a few years ago.
they have videos on Youtube on how to hook Sega genesis version 1 2 and 3 consoles on up to a flat screen tv or any of the newer TV's. I just use a CRT style TV they are much easier to hook up old consoles too. Just buy a CRT tv type then.
In Australia analogue TV signals will be phased out and finished by the end of 2009 (I think).
If you have a standard analogue TV you won't be able to receive any more free to air analogue TV programs when they stop brocasting these TV signals. To recieve the new digital signals you need to buy a digital set top box (which receives digital TV signals and converts it to analogue signal that can be displayed on your old TV). The set top box will only receive Standard Definition signals and this is a lower screen resolution that is available from High Definition signals.
Digital TV signals offer approx. 15 TV channels ln High definition and Standard Definition, different programs channels will be available from the same TV broadcaster, although the High Definition pograms will also be repeated on one of the Standard Definition channels.
High Definition gives a sharper image than Standard dedinition, but you may not notice much difference because it depends much on the material you are viewing, You will notice how clear DVD and BlueRay movies are compared with the VCR tapes. To get the best images from DVD movies your player must be connected to the HDMI connector on your High Definition TV (provided your DVD player has one, usually BlueRay players will have one, they also will play normal DVD disks).
If you purchase a new High Definition TV you will also be able to receive all the Digital TV programs. Currrently these TVs are avail in Plasma or LCD screens and there are newer technologies within a few years. The Plasma screens use twice as much energy (electricity) as a LCD screen. It is suggested that the viewing distance to the TV should be 3.5 times the size of the TV screen.
Hope this answers your query.
Get back to me if you have any more questions.
If the LCD only has coax, it will never display a HD picture quality. However, the Comcast HD Box will still display a picture using the coax connection. So, you could watch any HD channel, but the picture quality will not be high definition.
