Re: TV not working
You have destroyed a power capacitor or IC from your main circuit board, if there is no power then it may be the transformer too. It will need replacing - the repair in total is artound 50$ or more so save up. Most TV's come with a 1 year warranty if new. do NOT open or fiddle anymore to avoid voiding of this, mr TINKER

Hello. If your POP (Proof of Purchase like store receipt) is less than 1 year old you have to contact Vizio immideately and setup appointment for authorized technician in-home service. You might have problem with LCD Panel (or plasma whatever you have) that result of manufacturing defect and reveals itself only after several months of use. You still covered by manufacturer's warranty and you don't need to pay anything to get your TV fixed or replaced. After warranty expiration replacing a panel generally cost more than buying new TV. Act as soon as you can and don't try to fix anything by yourself. Regards. Russ.
You have a problem indeed. try lowering the tv volume . if the signal is too high on tv it can cause some problem with the sound system if that dosent work then you may have some electronic sound output resistor problem.
Don't feel bad about Mits. All the projection companies and all
the new TVs have markedly poorer reliability than the good old CRT
types. You should see all the class action lawsuits against even
some of the best companies!
The power supply section is not working.
Common possibilities are:
- Convergences amps have failed overloading the supply
- High-voltage section (flyback transformer) has failed
(happens sooner or later, about 8 years typical))
- CRT tube has failed overloading the supply
- Power surge has popped the power input circuit.
(Fuse, rectifier diodes, turn-on relay etc)
- One of a hundred of electrolytic capacitors has failed
short overloading the supply. They dry
out with age, are cheap to replace, but hard to find which one it is.
- Or any of many other possibilities.
In short, you need a experianced tech to troubleshoot this.
this unit is dead ,possoble power supply problem. you must have warranty on this unit if its only 8 months old,if not contact place of purchase and ask wath is the life expectancy of their products and your tv set it start them thinking about repairing or replacing.
I purchased this tv 2/06 and it went POP in 04/07. Less than 60 days after my warranty expired. Went back and forth with Zenith for several months. I refused to take NO for an answer. Customer service stinks and you have to be very persistent. They eventually agreed to fix it. Repairs cost over $2000 and I have my tv back. Next time it breaks just going to throw it out. Zenith sucks.
