This is technically two problems (could be related, I'm no expert). 1) Occasionally the screen will go wavy on me and make a high pitched whine. Annoying, but not life threatening, so to speak. I can be perfectly happy with the wavy if my next problem can be fixed... 2) This is the serious problem... now the TV won't turn on. The little green light will flash, and I hear click from inside the TV. Also, I hear the screen static up for a second. This happened once before and a few days later the TV worked fine again. It just happened again (been about 3 weeks since the last time) and I'd like to get to the bottom of this problem if I can. *Disclaimer* I have no clue about the inner mysteries of a TV set, so if you can, keep it simple. I can solder if I need to, just expain how and where as if I was a slow-witted four year old :) Thanks in advance!
You can try to check if these are a couple of bad solder joints on the board. You might have alot of dry joints. Take carethat the tv is unplugged and try it out. before starting, try shorting the pins of the largest capacitor in your tv set, to make sure you do not take an electric shock. Best Regards Patrick
