You just check whether the remote control has infrared light emission from it or not. It can't be see with our eye, as infrared rays are invisible to us. Put new cells in the remote handset before you proceed. If you have a cellphone with camera option, the things are easy. Put the cellphone on camera mode, and place your remote control just in front of its lens, at about one feet away or so, press each button on your remote handset, The camera will sense the infrared radiation, and you can see its image on its screen. If there is infrared radiation sign, and still your TV doesn't respond to it, your TVs infrared sensor inside it is faulty. It comes just behind the infrared window ath the front panel of your Tv. It is a three terminal component, and can be resoldered out of the board, and can be replaced. Open your TV, locate it and resolder it from the board. go with that as a sample, and buy a new one with same type and number. its number will be printed [laser markling], on its boady, and should insist on it,a s it is a critical part. Replaceing it will solve your problem. Ok

the horizonal output transistor is shorted-replace it also resolder coil near transistor-if output shorts again flyback transformer is bad

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. Before paying a TV repair person $75+ to diagnose the problem, ask yourself if you're willing to pay $150 minimum to fix this particular set. Also keep in mind that if the TV is more than 3 years old, the availability of replacement parts can also be an issue. Normally it will cost at least $75 to have the set looked at by a repair shop (diagnostics). If the part needed to complete the repair isn't available, you won't get that money back.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

as a general rule, vertical faults can be divided into two types: ones that cause geometric distortion (a circle will not be round) and those that simply black out a portion of the screen. the former are faults in the vertical oscillator, drive, or output stages. the latter are blanking faults. blanking faults are almost always caused by electrolytic capacitors changing value and thereby changing the timing of the pulses which blank the screen during vertical retrace. In other words, the pulses are turning off the video signals at the wrong time. the most common true vertical fault is geometric distortion and a foldover of white lines at the top of the screen. this is almost always caused by the electrolytic capacitor on or near the collector of the vertical output transistor or part of the IC which has the supply voltage (B+) on it. In the old tube days, the general rule was that bottom distortion was in the cathode of the output tube and distortion at the top was caused by a fault in the drive circuit. this may help the solution!!

Probably needs a new tuner or something associated with the tuner.

Yep i can tell you what it is. The High pitched sound is the power supply soound when its overloaded and thats because the Horizontal output transistors shorted and this happened because of the flyback transformer went bad and /or the horizontal driver coil right off the secondary of the horizontal driver transformer and then the other side of this coil connects to the base of the horizontal output transistor. The part transformer cost about 35 to 45 bucks to the dealer and the transistor cost about 15 bucks. the total repair job cost about 175 to 225.00 after all said and done and some shops even may charge more ad there labopr rates may be higher. Good Luck
