Customer Question
The TV won't turn...

The TV won't turn on. It turns on and then turns off.

Technician's Assistant: Is your TV connected to a surge protector or power strip?

Yes. I unplugged it and plugged it back in

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

I did unplug it but didn't leave it off for 1-2 minutes. I'll do that now.

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.
