    After pressing the Zoom button on the remote the tv went to standby, then tried switching itself on but there was just a 'snowy' display and no picture. After turning off the tv, unplugging, and trying again the problem still persists. I have changed the batteries in the remote control but this hasn't worked. Could yo suggest anything else please?

It sounds like you have a problem in the power supply or a short somewhere in the unit which is causing the power supply to stay in the standby mode to protect it. You say that it won't start with the remote, and I know this is simple, but it certainly would not hurt to try the controls on the unit, just in case the remote or pickup has a problem. If that doesn't work and you have repair skills, know how to use a DMM and check transistors, as well as knowledge of TV safety issues, you will have to troubleshoot the unit. This could be a shorted horizontal output transistor, a bad power supply or a short somewhere else in the unit. If the HOT checks bad I would replace the transistor and flyback and check all the associated components for any problems. If you find the HOT bad, that is probably your problem. If the HOT checks good, you may be beyond your skills and need to have the unit looked at by a qualified tech. That's your call. Good luck.

SOURCE: TV keeps turning itself on and off, onto standby

I managed to find a local repair man who fixed the problem. He put in a new transformer.

SOURCE: black box on screen

Try unplugging your tv for a few hour/days to let it reset itself to default. Hope that helps.

Try unpluging from the wall and theplug back in and try turning back on to reset. Sometimes holding the power button in while pluging back in will reset it, every brand is different for the hard reset.

Since the screen keeps turning off and sound only remains have a look at the inverter board for any buldging capacitors which look like blue cans, there is most probably a short in the inverter and the powersupply is sensing this thus turning it back into standby to prevent damage to the tv.

It sounds like you accidentally enabled a zoom feature or something similar.

Most remote controls should have a clearly labeled "zoom" button or a "picture size" option. If not, go into your TV's menu and look for something zoom related.

If this doesn't work, just go ahead and toy around in your TV's menu. I strongly suggest writing down the default settings so you can go back to them if you screw something up.

Good luck!
