How long have you owned the Hisense for, and when did the issue occur (storm, power outage, etc.)?

A neabor gave it to me because ( she ) couldn't get it to work. She gave it to me about a year ago. I'm just now looking at it.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 8 months ago

Okay, so you're looking to fix it yourself then? If so, then I need you to provide as much detail as possible as to what the TV does when you press power- does the screen light, are there any sounds? Do you have test equipment?

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.
