Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Welcome. I am Mike, an experienced field technician. We are now connected together on this convenient website where I am able to help you. To get started, I need to know you can see this message and are able to reply to me here...
-What is the purchase date of the tv?
** My replies can take up to 5 minutes to appear **** Do NOT start a new question **
Do you see the tv screen glowing or flicker when you first plug in/power on?
Can you see the tv menu if you press MENU button on the tv or the original RCA remote?
Are you 100% sure there is AC power to this outlet? test by plugging in simple table lamp to this outlet
Then unfortunately there is not going to be any easy reset/fix. The Tv has an internal failure and the back panel needs to come off, complex checks need to be performed with a meter, then parts ordered and installed. If that is something you want to attempt then reply back here and I can assist you further.
If you are unable or unwilling to perform any of these procedures then a repair shop should be consulted. I can help you locate a nearby shop if you like.
Reply back for more information on either of these and before you go please take a moment to submit at least a 3 star rating at the top of this page. Then if you still need help you can reply back and I will be happy to assist you further.
I do understand that finding out your tv needs expensive repairs is not pleasant but keep in mind that an in home diagnosis by a local repair shop costs $100-$135 up front and repairs can total $350. Finding out whether your tv can be repaired and how much it may cost from this online chat costs a fraction of that. At least now you can make the most of your situation without high repair costs and long wait times.
