Goodmans 1430R TV (bought 10 years ago) switched off in middle of program by itself and no longer works.
I have a Goodmans 1430R 14" Standard CRT TV bought some 10 years ago. It has always worked fine without trouble, being switched on very regularly and not left on standby more than about 12 times in it's lifetime. Last Sunday night, between 9:00 and 10:00 pm, it simply switched off in the middle of a program and we have been unable to switch it back on since, no matter how we tried. We opened it up and had a peek inside. It's inner circuitry all appears normal (nothing heavily scorched or melted), so I am wondering how on Earth it could be fixed. One thing to note: our area has recently seen a few power surges. 240v AC supply, working fine. A 5A fuse in the plug which has definitely not blown. The flex to the TV is OK. Also a smaller fuse on the main circuit board of the TV, again looks fine. In other words, EH?! ?!?!?!

Oh come on man the sets tired!!!LOL no really you got plenty of use out of this bugger. Your problem sounds like something opened in the power supply and since the sets all solid state theres no user serviceable parts inside them. If you really wanted to put cash into a 10 year old set for an estimate/? i would not . But if you like the set go for it. Good luck

If you switch your tv of at the plug the software cant do the updates. Leave the tv in standby over night and that should work. If you do leave it on standby but still losing channels contact goodmans as you may need an update of the software
Your best bet is a universal bracket that fits Goodmans and is sized correctly for a 14" TV. An example of this is this, however you can also search online for others that fit what you are looking for.
You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/ If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

This is called 60cycle hum and it is caused by the 60Hz signal of the power supply "leaking" into the video circuitry. It is caused by a faulty filter capacitor. and can be seen by using an oscilloscope. I would suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV technician for servicing, because this type of repair is not for the do it yourself person.
I hope this helps,
Will the TV go to channel 3? if not you need to reporogram the TV to sence channel 3 or go into the setup and undelete channel 3. Channel 3 is the channel your digital box is set to boradcast to the tv itself.
in your remote control there will be one button calles ASM or auto search mode you press it (or auto) tv will tune one by one channel automatically & it will stop.
now from prog. button you can up &down channals.
from vol +&- vol up& down.
