    Default TV Spoil, suggestions?

    Hi everyone, I have a spoil television, the red light is on but can't seem to on it. Tried using remote control and also pressing the buttons, both doesn't help. Any TV gurus able to know the problem with it and suggest if I can DIY repair it or anywhere I can send for repair? Thanks.

    Not spoilt.

    You accidentally pressed buttons on TV remote to set TV to a different input.

    Try changing input source to TV from AV1 then AV2 then DVD....

    Last time I got a pretty nasty shock from the Flyback Transformer (FBT) when I was repairing my old CRT TV.

    If you think touching the capacitor in an exposed photography flash unit is bad enough, try 50,000 volts of pain.

    For LCD monitor, the best you can do is to replace the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) controller. Anyway 23" IPS LED monitors are so cheap nowadays, might as well get a new one.

    just call your agent service center, if is not worth repairing, they will let you know.

    FYI, I send my jammed DVD player to Philips, they told me not worth to repair it, offer me a discount voucher to buy a new player.

    If it is still under warranty, send it to service center.

    If it is not under warranty, the repair may cost more than a new TV.

    Then I suggest you go to Singapore Expo during Special Sales to get a new TV. I think there is another one this weekend.

    It could also be due to a faulty TV remote. That piece of gadget is often abused (dropped, b*tt pressed while on the sofa, and so on)

    If you have a universal remote, try to program to your TV brand.
    Usually those home theater remotes extra button or option to control the TV
