I got this TV today and was told that board that goes to the switches needed to be re-attached. So, my husband re-attached this, plugged the TV in and still nothing. He got to looking a little closer and found a blown fuse. We replaced it and still nothing, not even a clicking that the TV might make trying to turn on. Any suggestions? I got to looking on the back and it says that it was made in 1999. Not that that matters. If there are any sites that could give step-by-step instructions on how to fix it, that would be great. Or at least when suggestions are made on what to replace or fix, please give locations of the parts. We are TV illiterate, so be kind please. Thank you!

Re: Need help trying to figure out what's wrong.
Apologies up-front, because I know this isn't the kind of advice you were asking for.
I'm a great fan of people having a go at fixing things for themselves, and wouldn't normally push the safety whinge much further than "don't forget to turn it off before you start poking around inside".
BUT TVs ARE DIFFERENT. There's bits of a TV that can give you a fatal shock long, long after you've switched them off.
If you're really as TV illiterate as you say you are, my advice would be to leave the thing alone, and live to mend something else another day.
Sorry to be such a pain - I'm a professional Electrical Engineer and have worked with all manner of dangerous machinery in my time - but opening up TVs still gives me the creeps.

You have to open the machine and see why the switch is shorting. Do you know how to get it open? Unlock the coin panel. There are locks on each sude that hold the play table down. Unlock those and see if the play board will lift. On some models, you have to remove the glass before lifting the play board. There is a prop rod to hold it up. Then look at the specials slot and compare how it looks to similar features to figure out what is wrong.
Have you tryed ebay they sometimes have them from people that bought them and didn't need them the prices are very reasonable compared to what factory dealers want to charge if you have the part number that will help you alot in finding the right one.
I would start by pulling the batteries from the remote control. Manually turn the TV off and then back on, manually. If the issue resolves, replace the remote.
If the issue continues; you will need to find a local TV Repair Shop and have the Tuner Board replaced.
If fan runs on 220 you have one constant 110 that always goes to the motor. The other 110 goes through something that will turn it off and on. This being the relay, just like a light switch. This 110 will land on the "N O" (normally open) set of contacts. "Open" meaning the voltage can't pass through. When the relay gets energized the contacts close. This completes the circuit, the motor gets the 220 it needs and it runs. On the relay coil (how it gets it's energy) you need a low voltage common and you need the "G" wire from the tstat. Likely green in color, this is your indoor blower low voltage wire. When the tstat calls for fan, cool or heat, the relay energizes, closes the contacts, fan runs. Good Luck!!
You will need to remove the back of the TV. Don't worry, it's not that bad.
There are 4 screws across the top, one on each side on the bottom, one right next to
where the power cord goes into the back of the case, and the two more
by all of the video connections **These are the most important to
remove because they attach the main board to the back of the case.
Once you have remove the screws then the entire back of the set will
slide off. If you look where the power cord attaches to the board you
will see a small fuse. This is a 6.3 Amp 125 volt fuse. You can replace
it with a 6.3 Amp 250 volt fuse from your local Radio Shack. A four
pack costs between $3 and $5.
Make sure that you check that it works before putting it all back
together. Check for any loose connection cables while you're back
there. I found a few when I did this.
Well i have the same tv , and when i took it apart i switched a few wires around and i managed to get it working again, i can send some pictures of what i did because, i really had no clue what i exactly did by switching the wires.
