I have a nine year old Hitachi Rear Projection large screen TV. It will not turn on and does not display a red standby light. Have plugged it in to other power source and still not working. Do I take it to the tip or hopefully find a technician to fix it?

Definately rear projection tv purchased new nine years ago
Is there anywhere else I should look? Maybe under specifications in the manual!
TV Technician: Anthony F., Owner of TV Service Center replied 8 years ago
yeah see if it is a CRT rear projection or an LCD rear projection
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I can't find anything in specifications that mentions LCD . It does say - Multi System Projection TV (magic focus, Auto Digital Convergence.)
TV Technician: Anthony F., Owner of TV Service Center replied 8 years ago
ok it has to be a rear projection crt tv if it has converegnce that is the clue
if you unplug the tv
does it try to turn on when you plug it back in ?
clicks?
lights?
