Thank you so much for taking the time to try to help. It is a JVC Tv, model number AV48P776. We have owned the tv about a year and a half, and we tried unplugging the tv and plugging it back in to correct the problem, and we would either get it to turn on for a couple of seconds and then it turns itself off, or it turns on and the power light blinks but there is still no picture or sound. It also smelled hot the last time we plugged it in. We also have tried pushing the volume- and channel- buttons on the front panel of the tv simultaneously, that was a troubleshooting suggestion in the owner's manual, but it did the same thing as unplugging the set did. Thanks again for your help. Customer/p>
Thank you for your answer. Although I was hoping for a simple fix!! I don't think this is something we would want to try to fix ourselves, can you give me an idea of what it would cost to fix, or would we be better off just to replace it? It is quite frustrating, we just paid this tv off last week!!
