My chidrens spongebob tv got some water spilled on it, it is no longer working. There is no picture or sound. I let it dry, and tried to turn it on. It doesn't do anything.then when I tried to turn it off, there was a static sound that went in and out. I then tried to turn it back on, then nothing again. Turned it back off, then the static sound went in and out again, then the TV turned itself on again, then would not shut off. I was wondering if I should get it repaired or if it is now junk? Or if ther is anything I can do myself to repair this problem. Thank you

Turn the TV off imediately. Remove the back cover and heat up the wet area with an hair dryer to thoroughly dry the board. Then try tv again.If it doesnt solve the problem look for the board that the speaker wires connect to and replace that board..You should be able to buy online.
It sounds to me like makebe the horizontal output trasnistor is out. This is somethign that will need to be repaired by a technictian. If you are going to change this part yourself ( assuming for sure that is the problem ) always be very careful when opening the back of the TV. Always unplug it first, then discharge the picture tube as there could be as much as 30,000 volts of energy stored in it. The horizontal transistor is the biggest, black, nearly square transistor that is located next to the trasformer that has the large red wire going to the picture tube. You will need to solder it in. I do suggest you do have a qualified technitian do the job since there is some danger in working in the tv set.
I hope this has helped in some way.
You need a TV with an A/V input option. I believe your set does not have this option.
You can look at getting an A/V modulator. Check with any local electronics store. The salesman can give you the details about how to set this up with an A/B switch so that you can select between the modulator and the cable system.
