Last night I went to turn the TV on. The two little green lights in the center of the button cluster at the bottom came on, went out, and nothing..The set won't turn on, tried different (working) outlets, tried the remote. I have been unplugging the set and the antennae when not in use. The lights came on when it was plugged in.
I have dial-up, so I might not be "right there"

Re: sylvania tv model 6719DG VCR DVD won't turn on
There may be a cold solder joint, in the video processing or CRT bias paths to start with. The changing of the brightness may be the high voltage multiplier. In your set, it is most likely integrated with the flyback transformer, and all are replaced as a module.
You can try to rotate the G2 or bias pot back and forth a little in case it is sitting on a sort of intermittent spot, but more than likely the HV multiplier section is bad.
Hope that helps.........

could be that either the dvd or the vcr are malfunctioning, usually it is the vcr that creates the problem. If you turn tv on and set vol to low see if you can hear the noise of the motor loading or trying to load,with out a tape inside. It may be a good idea to have a qualified tech repair it, these units are difficult to work on and further problems may come up if you are not familiar with the tv.
slide the mode switch to tv, hold down mute and select until the light blinks enter "9-9-1-------1" when the lights finish blinking start pushing push the channel up button. this is a code search. It will transmit every code it knows one at a time. when the tv turns off you've found a code that works. turn it back on, try the volume and see if it works correctly. when finished press select.
most tv/dvd and/or vcr combos won't work with tv codes.
Directv has posted many new codes on their website for combo tv's Go to [ www.directv.com/remote ]to look up the latest codes
read the programming section for the remote as there are many customizable features on the remote that most people aren't aware of.
I had the same problem programming my directv remote to recognize the ssc719c. What finally worked was programming AV1 (not 'TV') with the sylvania DVD code 20821. This allowed me to turn the tv on and off and change tv channels, but wouldn't allow me to mute or change the volume. To fix this, (at least in my case) you have to program your remote to recognize the volume and mute buttons in the AV1 slide setting. I assume other (non directv) remotes similarly disable the volume and mute buttons when the remote is not in satellite or tv mode. Anyway, here are the instructions that activated the volume & mute buttons on my remote: "Depending on how you set up your remote, the VOL and MUTE may control the volume only on your TV, regardless of the position of the MODE switch. This remote can be set up so that the VOL and MUTE keys work only with the component selected by the MODE switch. To enable this feature, perform the following steps: 1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice, then release both keys. 2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light will flash twice after the 3.) 3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light flashes 4 times.) Now the VOL and MUTE keys will work only for the component selected by the MODE switch position."
To sum up: if you find a code for your remote that will turn your tv on and off, but doesn't seem to do much of anything else, it's probably the right code; your remote is probably set up not to recognize volume or mute inputs in AV1 or AV2. You change that using a remote-specific code that's probably found somewhere on the remote maker's website.
ok i have a sylvania tv/vcr combo, similar problem, here's how i got the directv remote (RC23 & RC32) to operate basic t.v. functions:
-First i found the code that worked for the vcr (20000 in my case). -i programmed "AV1" to 20000, this allowed me to power the tv on/off, change the channels but not operate the volume, so... -after plugging in the 20000 code (with the slelector switch on AV1 still):
1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the TV position flashes twice, then release both keys. 2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light will flash twice after the 3.) 3. Press select
that allowed me to operate the t.v. volume from the remote w/ the selector switch in any position, the only thing is i have to switch to AV1 in order to power off the T.v.
hope this helps in your case
I believe you either have a problem with your Power Supply inside your TV from a defective component in the circuit or you have a problem with the Picture Tube on your TV. I don't recommend you working on TV's by yourself unless you know what you're doing since you can get badly shocked. You need to discharge the Picture Tube on the TV before you work down any further. If you don't know what you're doing then you should get someone that knows what they're doing to work on your TV.
