It wont turn on its stuck on stand by
This sounds like the front panel assembly(FPA) switches are acting up. What happens with this model is the FPA switches start to conduct just as if someone was pressing the buttons. This in effect locks up the system control or causes it to do erratic things.
The way to determine if the FPA is bad is to remove it by unplugging from set. This requires front panel disasembly. Note:The remote will still work with the FPA removed so the set can be tested.
Let me know if you need more help or info.

Tv doesnt turn on at all
that your unit has some sort of PSU
fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. The noise is what gives it away. This
happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man
and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical
switchmode Power Supply problem.

You have bad grounds on the power board. The first place are the solder connections under neath the flyback transformer. This is my first area of inspections. You must really, really inspect the rest of the board. This TV has many poor solder connections too numerous to pin point. These are very small and will take an extremely close inspection. I cannot say enough here. Look for bad solder grounds on the vertical IC (do not use excess solder or you will short this IC). Look for solder connections on transistors, diodes, jumpers, power resistors and capacitors. Capacitors include electrolytic, disks and safety capacitors.Resolder other transformers too. Be sure to check close for bad solder connections on the heat sinks as well. Next, use an ESR meter to check all your electrolytic capacitors.This is a good place to start repairs. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!
Were is the HDMI HOOK
If there is not one in back, it could have the old style DVI jack. You'll need a DVI to HDMI adaptor.
