Tv problems i have a 27 inch sylvania tv that is only a year and a half old. one day it just turned off while it was on. is it fixable?

    I, too, have a Sylvania 27", which I bought in 2004. About 2 years out, it just stopped working. Perfectly fine one day, next day, no picture, no sound, and near as I can tell, no power. (thought I heard one "click" one time when I hit the power button, but I could have imagined it). In case the on/off button is bad, I've tried many times to power up using the remote control, but no luck.

    I'm disabled and it's up in my bedroom, so I've just left it there all this time (about 1 1/2 years), hoping I could find a simple solution to its problem, rather than face the prospect of somehow dragging it off the table and down three flights of steps to my car (or the curb, for that matter). I have no one to help me... it's just me and my brother who has Down Syndrome, and he's not in great shape either, certainly can't lift a tv.

    I haven't been able to locate the manual. Can anyone tell me where I would find the fuse in the tv, what the fuse actually looks like, and what a bad one would look like, if I were to open up the back? Thanks for any help/info you can provide.

I've had the same problem 3 or 4 times with a 32" Sylvania that's about 3 years old. The first time I opened it up, but did not see a blown fuse or any components that appeared to be burnt. After I plugged it back in, it worked fine. Since then when it goes off, I just unplug it for a couple of minutes and then it's fine.

This is a bit to vague of an explaination to properly trouble shoot you problem. Although most sets are fixable, it depends on the value of the set to you. I have seen problems like this be as easy as just a fuse and all the way to a bad fly-back transformer. If you have a volt ohm meter, you could check the fuse and see if it's the easy fix ( make sure you always unplug the set before checking anything in the set ). If the fuse is bad, you can simply change it and your ready to go. If it's anything else, it may require more extensive board work and I would suggest you seek professional help.
I Hope this helps

I have a Sony FD Trinitron 27' Model # KV-27FV310. It is approx 8 years old. After turning it on and watching a full screen for a few minutes; all of a sudden, a line came across half the screen;

top half missing is in vertical circuit of set---if it is a 27 inch and this old consider retiring it and replacing----other option is consider having a shop repair it--a rough guess would be as high as 150 dollars parts and labor is possible for your problems.

Sylvania TV - 3 tics

Not economically. The ticking sound is a sure sign of high-voltage shutdown, and is coming from your flyback transformer - the most expensive part in the TV besides the picture tube. Even if it's not the flyback, troubleshooting the high voltage section is usually more than the cost of a new TV.

Anything is fixable just a matter of cost or availability of parts.

27 inch Mitsubishi tube TV

A tv that old isn't worth more than $100, The part could cost half of that or even more depending on the exact model, definitely not worth it. A tv that size is a decent price today, Just buy a tv that can get a digital signal and you will be set for next year with it. Let me know if you need anything else

Sylvania 27 inch stereo flat screen tv

This problem sounds like a short inside the picture tube itself unless a driver transistor failed that drives the red gun in the CRT. You may have to take it to an authorized repair facility if the picture tube is still in warranty.

Not accepting video via RF connection

Why use a seperate tuner? Have you tried removing the seperate tuner and plugging the antenna into the TV?
