This is a fairly common problem. There is a logic circuit on the power control board that receives a switched signal from the power switch on the TV set (or from the remote control unit) to turn the set on and off. Over time the electronic component deteriorates and fails to function.

Have you tried holding the power switch on the TV for several seconds to see if the TV will turn on? Sometimes this will work. Another possible solution is to refer to the owner's manual to see if there is a "master reset" switch or function. It may refer to the function as "restore factory defaults."
If you have tried these actions, and the set will still not turn on, then it is most likely an electronic component defect that would require professional servicing. Consider the age of the tv before calling a repair service. Most technicians will not make a house call for less than $100.00. If your unit is over 3 years old, seriously consider replacing it. J.

You have a bad Eprong which is a low price IC chip that controls your volume. You will have to replace this chip for around $15.00. A tech would charge about $50.

Very little volume, not very loud at highest


On the TV-use your finger to adjust the volume level, about midway, then use the remote to shut off the tv, then turn on tv with remote. Volume level should be better! If still not loud enough...using your finger on the tv...turn up volume & repeat remote steps.

Remote doesn't control. batteries are good, but there is no apparent connection between the remote and the TV. It is in use with a Comcast turner-DVR, which works fine, but I have to turn on and adjust...


Are you using Comcast remote to control the TV? When you program the Comcast remote to control your TV, it will do two functions: on/off, and Volume control. The Comcast can also be programmed not to control the volume of the TV (TV volume will have to be set at about mid level manually, then the Comcast box will send out variable sound level to the TV), just on/off ONLY.

Volume is very low


Use the satellite receiver remote control to adjust the volume first. The receiver itself offers volume control and you probably have that turned down. Then you are trying to raise it with the volume control on the TV. This is raising the TV volume, but there isn't much sound there in the first place. Use the receiver remote, and you will probably see a volume bar. At some point it might say something like "best stereo" or a star might appear. If that happens leave the volume set there, otherwise just raise it all the way. Then control the volume with the TV remote, or program the DirecTV remote for your brand of TV, and the volume button should control the TV then.
