    Same problem! Same TV same purchase time. I was sleeping and all of a sudden..................sparks, smoke & now the TV won't power up. I had a repair man look at it and he's telling me it will cost around $350 or more to fix. Something abou the main power panel? Sounds like GE should do a recall!

Same problem. TV manufactured in 2004. Sparks, smoke, etc etc. I didn't have a TV repairman look at it, but I talked to one and he said about $300 to $400.

You need a new replacement flyback. They cost about 50 dollars at the following link , and they provide free tech support so you can do the repair yourself which takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and requires only basic soldering skills. Heres the link.

I got bush TV cant get off device cuz havent got remite


Purchase a Logitec Harmony remote. When you set it up, the software asks for the device you intend to control. Enter in your make, and model number. After the remote setup is complete, you should be able to control it.

I would check on the logitec website (logitec.com) before you purchase to make sure your device is supported before making the purchase. But they support just about anything under the sun.

I can't get my Comcast remote control to sync up with this sylvania 32in HD tv. I tried every code in the Comcast DVR manual under sylvania tv's and nothing, I would love a fix to this problem.


the tv is likely to be generic in nature i.e. parts used by many manufacturers. if you knew what tv builder actually designed it you could find the code. does the remote have a search feature if so use it, it should find something that operates most tv functions eventually
