My TV won't turn on and it doesn't matter if I use the remote of push the power button on the front of the TV. It clicks continually unless I hold down the power button on the front for at least 20 seconds. I called a couple of local repair shops and received an estimate of $250-$300 and it would take 3-5 days. Is this something is relatively easy to fix? Thanks!!!!

Re: TV clicks/snaps and won't turn on
Did they say for sure what parts are bad? My guess flyback transfomer/ shorted hori output transistor NTE2324.And to answer your other question about you trying to fix this keep in mind this set carrys up to 36,000 volts and if you really dont know what you are doing can get you killed.leave it to the PRO's to fix unless you have at lease 3yrs of Electronics.

you have a short circuit in the power supply. 1) test the power cord very well 2) test the main swithc for short or open 3)test the power supply, look for a short in transformer+coil+filter+diode+rectifier. and replace 4)test the HVRECT+fLYBACK+ horizontal output for +125Vdc +vertical output for +80Vdc ALL this go to the CRT color +12vdc+other circuit +12vdc. The first thing do you will have is RASTER, see the block. d God bless you

check the front button plate on the front of the tv very carefully.if it has been hit with something and either or any button is pushed in,it will not listen to other commands.make sure each button has a distinct click when pushed.a frozen button will cause other things not to work.it sounds to me like two buttons are making contact,and they are beside each other,so the button plate is crooked or warped.
If you forget your password you can reset it. Make sure the TV is off. Simultaneously press and hold VOL< on the TV?s front panel and CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Enter a new password next time you access the PARENTAL CONTROL menu.
Front Panel Lock
1. From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight Lock Fr. Panel.
2. Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn?t have check mark) front panel lock.
Of course if you don't have a remote that can bring up the menu I don't know how this can be done.
First of all, forget about the remote and see if the TV functions normally using the buttons on the front of the set itself. If the TV will not power on with the power button on the set itself, then something is wrong inside the TV. If the set works fine from the front buttons but no longer responds to that remote, then the remote has either gone bad or was accidently set to a different brand. In this case, look for the original book that came with the remote (or TV if it is the original remote) and follow the instructions for setting the remote back to Zenith. Try that and post your results here.
