Look towards the middle back of the tv there should be four screws that you can remove to remove the base. Follow up from the base they will be evenly dispersed in th emiddle of th etv and they will all be the same screw type after removing them slide out the base.

It can be the T-CON board, power supply due to bad caps, main board. Inspect the power supply first to make sure it does not have any bad caps witj leaking/bulging tops, then try reseating the ribbon cables between the LCD panel and the T-CON board. Worst cas will be the LCD panel itself.

I don't have a solution, but I do know that it is possible to program a universal remote to work with this TV, When I had DirecTV the installer had a huge book of codes (MANY more than the literature that usually comes with a remote or cable/satellite remote) I have no idea how to get hold of this book though, sorry.

It may gone into standby mode because it sensing over current draw or short circuits such as the backlight inverter board. You will need to open it up and look inside the power supply and the backlight inverter board, right now the 5vdc standby power supply is working but nothing else.

Sorry you're out of luck, unfortunately, there isn't a code in any preprogrammed universal or oem remote for that model.
You have to get a learning remotes, or PC programmable universals, to be able to control your system..

10171 is normal code for sylvania on the newer white remotes.

11864 worked for me (posted somewhere) after checking about 50 codes for sylvania, funai, magnovox etc.

It depends on a lot of other things, but you could try these steps . . .(assuming its a TFT flat screen)

Has the mains fuse blown ? try a different mains cable.
If it works from a power supply/mains transformer (a small box attached to the mains supply cable), check that box - they usually have a small green light on them to show they are getting power. These are easily replaced if that part is faulty.
Has the power cable come detached from the rear of the TV ?
Does a power light appear on the actual TV front (usually blue or green), and then go red (or off) after a few seconds. In that case the screen has a more hard to fix problem inside :(

Sylvania... | Answered on Apr 05, 2010

I would suspect either some capacitors failing in the power supply, a bad solder connection, or a component drawing too much current. Replacing the power supply may fix it.

Sylvania... | Answered on Apr 03, 2010

It is an issue with the TCON board, check for loose connections on the board. If the connections are fine, then check the connections of the back light inverter connected to the main board.
Thanks Rylee

Usually you have a MENU, OK, < & > maybe a + & -, these will be on the edge or top of the set. Or under a flap. There MUST be controls such as this somewhere.

Sylvania... | Answered on Feb 15, 2010

The most common problem is the transformer inverter board. The small transformers power up the LCD screen. If one blows out, the TV goes into protection mode like it's doing right now. Your Tv may have 8 of those on a power inverter board. It' a good thing your under warranty, because I believe the board costs over $250.
If possible, I would like to buy your bad board when they replace it.
