STATIC BACKGROUND NOISE
The time is the clue static in the background is electrical interference this can be caused by faulty electrical appliances UHF ham and CB Radios etc ask neighbours if and when they suffer this interference this will help to locate and identify the cause ie the closer you get the worse it'll be
Once you identify the source the culprit may decide to fix the appliance desist from operation or you can buy filters to eliminate the cause of static noise once you know the cause
Tv keeps shutting off...can I fix?
Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
. In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Hacker code maybe
Initially, I would venture that the Parental Lock has been engaged and was set to the lowest level meaning the TV will not allow any channel to be displayed, they are all blocked.
To remove the parental lock, proceed to the Main Menu display, press on LEFT or RIGHT arrow key till Parental Guide Setting is highlighted. Before you can access, an entry code is required. The factory default is 1225 (that is if it has not been changed). Upon gaining entry, press on UP or DOWN and/or LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to turn any entry in the MPAA-Rating and/or the TV-Rating to show U (unblock). Additionally, it may also be necessary to turn the RATE SETTING to OFF. Exit.
To my knowledge Parental Lock is not disengaged by full hard reset or unplugging from mains.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
No sound but good pic,
There is a possibility that your speaker is defective, check the unit by using earphone . if still nothing is heard.adjust volume control minimum to maximum.still nothing.. audio amplifier is the next thing to blame. you may replace it. or call a serviceman to do that.
How good is a apex t.v.
Their **** and not worth the box they come in, but go ahead and buy one if you live in the hood and are worried about people stealing your sh.t. They don't ever steal these things. Guess crooks have higher standards. If you live in a decent neighborhood, then Sony, Samsung, Sanyo, and LG are the way to go. These companies have more funds invested in R&D and better quality control, which should relate to better product.
my tv has a red key in the coner and the only thing that turns the tv on is the remote cant turn it on manually
does the remote have a dash or dot button on it? if so it has the digital tuner, you need the dash or dot button for the digital channels such as 2.1 2.2 7.1 7.3 etc...
FLYBACK Transformer for APex 32'' Model #PF3230 Flat Part #BSC 70Y
Its not worth the repair if you still want to go ahead i need to know two things:
Are you going to have a qualified electronics technician fit it?
If you are planning to fit it yourself are you a qualified electronics technician?
If you answered no to both of these questions i cannot tell you where to get one or how to fit it due to the massive amounts of danger involved.

Moving Bars On Screen...
There is a large capacitor in the power supply section. it is rated at 820uf @ 200vdc. It is bad. Change it and increase the voltage rating to at least 250vdc. The tv will be fine.
