Hello SKrokau:

Have the IR sensor (Infared Sensor) replaced in this model. It is a common failue for Sylvania televisions. The IR sensor is the device used to receive commands from the remote and relay the commands to the microprocessor for processing. The sensor is very inexpensive and the total to repair should not cost you more then (FYI) $80.00 for parts and labor.

Have a Happy Holiday!

Unplug for several hours, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, wait half hour more, plug back in and try. Or press and hold either channel buttons at same time or volume buttons at the same time to see if that exits the mode.

If you have a cable box connected, you have to set your tv in the menu for cable/satellite and not antenna.

Is the picture stretched or shrinking and is it distorted or have lines? There are no vertical Height adjustment the circuit is prest and there is likely a problem in the vertical o/p circuit.
The problem is a bad Vertical Output IC (usually mounted on an aluminum heat sink with the part on it labeled LA78?? ) and 1 or 2 bad capacitors. Some times you can even fix the problem by re-soldering the contacts of the IC- To find the IC follow the 4 wires that come from the Yoke (which is a contained coil of wires slipped over the neck of the picture tube(s)) back to the board. 2 of the wires go to the horizontal o/p and 2 to the Vertical o/p the thinner gauge wires are for the vertical.

You should get the vertical IC checked starting with checking the supply voltage on it. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 9-11 pins. This tv model should carry an LA7837 or an equivalent IC. If supply is present, check with means of a magnifying glass for dry solder joints on it. Resolder the pins on this IC if necessary and should work out fine. Model tends to suffer from this problem.

Hello kd6aaj, You are on the right track, a vertical line usually means that you lost horizontal deflection which is supplied by the horizontal/High voltage section.The thing that puzzles me is that you did not lose high voltage. Let me explain. In modern TVs the horizontal section uses scan rectification or a process similar to a switching power supply to convert a lower voltage tapped off of the hoizontal/HV section to provide B+ for the rest of the television. So if you lose your Horizontal voltage you lose your B+ also. So you will never see the vertical line because you low voltage power supply if off also. Now I think your Q571 (H-Out), Q572 (H-Drive), Q551 and/or Q552 (H-Control) might be good. However check them anyway. I would also advise you to check your yoke transformer for an open or shorted winding. This would cause you to lose deflection without losing high voltage. You are definatly in the right section just add the deflection section to your scope of troubleshooting.

newer model televisions usually have a combination of buttons you can press on the front to reset them to the factory defaults. contact the most senior person that works in the electronics dept. where you bought the unit, they will usually give you some insight without much, if any hassle.

that's because (at least on my GE universal remote) the TV should be set to 0189. try it.

Check the outlet to be sure you have power to it. Then check both ends of the tv power cord to insure that they are actually plugged in. good luck.

Hello there. I'm sorry to say that it sounds as if the element that actually energizes your screen is bad. It is most likely overheating. or quite poosible the power converter lost a resistor or 2.
