My TV Brooooooooke

My tv is broke

It was going off and on, the picture just would not come on, now, the light on the on/off button just blinks, won't come on at all. Wouldn't be a big deal, but, it's the 52" and we have a 27" sitting on my kitchen island in the middle of the living room

Oh, crap, Stacy!!! I'd be bawling, too. I won't even tell you what Buck and I have.

How old is it? Maybe it can be fixed. I know nothing about these kinds of things, so I might be sounding like a great big techno dummy.

Hope you can get something fixed/done soon....and cheap.

It's only 3 years old. I'm hopeing that it is something small, a reset or something. DH is getting upset. Like a 5 year that had their toy taken away, lol

If the on/off button is blinking it may be trying to tell you something, check your owners manual and see what it says, might be an easy fix like a built in fuse or lamp or something.

Try turning tv off and unplugging from electric wait 5-10 minutes and start all over. Maybe it will reset itself. Tv isn't old enough to go on the blitz. I would go crazy if I lost my tv or internet.

yeah, did all but, one. Here's the one I did not do.
The front panel controls may be locked {disabled} Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the front panel block in the parental control menu and press OK to uncheck the box... HELLO< IT WON'T TURN ON!!!! Darwin wrote my tv's manual!!

Yeap, already did this too. It was doing this yesterday morning, dh unplugged it, came home after work and it did just fine. This morning, it wouldn't work and the same thing didn't help this time.

I think even Darwin would have bonked someone over the head for writing that one in the manual! LOL.
