Question about Televison & Video
This isn't going to be much of an answer and you probably will give me a bad rating but I,personally,would go out buy a new one if you are in a position to do so.It sounds like the image processing part of the circuit board at the least.Since it is a flat screen,if you can take it to a TV repair shop yourself,that saves you $50 minimum.If you want to self-repair you would most likely need a circuit board.It will likely be at least $150 and repair shops normally have a 20% parts price markup so now it's $180.Due to the age of the set and the current technological aspects compared to yours,it basically is like having a computer now with the Windows 98 days technology.It is also likely that the board you are looking for is no longer produced or available.Also,more than 1 economist from more than 1 media outlet have been reporting since last month that with the overstock of LCD's this year,you may find some really good deals with the fast approaching holiday season.That usually happens when a new technology comes out.It starts out expensive,after a few years prices start coming down,technology gets better,than after several years almost everyone has them so they do not even have enough common sense to know it but they keep producing the same numbers,but the demand goes way down.We just bought our first LCD this year.A 42" LG for about $650.So if you want,I will call around and look for a few parts for you,and find out if available or not and approximately how much.The makers themselves will not make that information available to the public on their websites.I have tried several different methods to no avail.You need to be a repair center with an account to access it.I can also tell you a few things to look for if you decide to replace it.I am not on this site strictly for money.I make maybe $25/week doing this.I just have been in a few industries and have simply had experiences in others to see how people are and do get ripped off just because they do not know enough.I am not the smartest guy in the world either.But I have a mainly electronic background and an aircraft mechanic license from the FAA.I just want to inform and educate people how to make the right decision for them and if I see red flags in certain things,like to spread the word.Also I would like to know if you are looking to self-repair this TV or not.It will be a big difference price-wise.So for now,don't say yes or no(I do not even know if that is possible as i cannot see the site from your end),just comment here and I will get an autolink to what you posted and will reply ASAP.Unless you comment,I have no way of knowing what you decided.I look forward to working with you on this one.

Wow it sounds like multiple problems with this unit. The current main problem is that the power supply has failed, that is why it will not power on. It could have been irregular power causing it to do the strange things it was doing before. If you really want to save this TV it will at least need a new power supply, hopefully not much more... On a TV of that age it may be difficult to even locate parts, but I can try, let me know if you want to try and replace the power supply by yourself and I will look around.
