Initially, the only easy user doable tries are:

  • unplug for an extended period of time;
  • plug back in but into a different outlet.
  • set POWER to ON and not AUTO.

All others would be internal.

If so, are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron?

If pursuing a DIY, please post back with clear pictures of the internal circuitry particularly the power supply section. Click HERE.

These pictures would then serve as common references allowing me to see what you are seeing.
