Hello, It's possible that one of two things happened. Either the microprocessor glitched when the power went out, or it took a surge when power was restored and has a faulty processor at this point. Initially, try disconnecting AC power to the unit for 60 minutes, then upon plugging back in press and hold the power button for 3-5 seconds to see if the unit resets. Let me know what happens either way.

I'm screaming your praises!! WOW! I plugged my TV in and bammo! The picture came on bright and beautiful. What a relief! YOU saved me some money and headache.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
