what could be the problem on my tv

Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.
Right now quite a few things could be the problem , this is an older deflection /tube tv and they were quite complex which means that quite a few things can go wrong after all this time.I will have few questions and I will have you try something .By the way , you don`t need the remote to turn the tv on and even if you had it , that would not help in this case
Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.
First thing to try is this;Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.If that does not do it then we are looking at internal problems with the tv.let me know how that goes.

Thank you for the reply. We often see these sets develop faults after several years, and in most cases it requires replacement of a component (the Power Supply circuit being the most common).

However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up.

The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up. Try this procedure up to 4 times if subsequent tries do not work. Please reply back and we can proceed.
