In Response To: television (brian walls)

I'm not 100% sure about televisions, but when this happens to a computer monitor, 9 times out of 10 it is the power supply inside the unit. This is the device that converts the 120V power from the wall to the various voltages actually needed by the things inside the unit.

I wouldn't try to repair that myself. A television can shock you long after it's been unplugged. Take it to a repair shop. Besides you'll probably have trouble finding the right power supply anyway.

Be sure you get an estimate from the shop before they do anything, because if it's a small set, it might be cheaper to buy a new one. If it's a large expensive one, then you'll probably want it repaired.

On the other hand, it could be something worse than the power supply, but the estimate will confirm this for you.

Good luck.
