TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Nothing happens when I press the jag wheel in
3 years, no sign of life.
I was watching the TV 30 min. before with no problem.
Same issue. Nothing happened.
Unfortunately there is no sequence of buttons or reset you can perform to get the set working again, as there is a failure on the power supply board inside the TV. Commonly the capacitors on this board will receive a surge and then fail. They can sometimes be visually verified by removing the rear of the set and inspecting them for bulges or leaking fluid at the top or the base of the caps. This is the most common mode of failure for these sets. The problem could also be a cracked solder joint, or failed IC regulator, in which case it would be more cost effective to replace the board itself. The Power Board can be replaced with nothing more than a screwdriver and about 15 minutes of time. The entire rear of the set must be removed to access it however, and then the connections are simply plug ins. The link below is where you can purchase the Power Board for your set:
