"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

12 years Old TV and you still want to fix it ?
It will be very hard for anyone here to make any advise since it can be problem related to electronic board or power supply.
For very cheap money you can get new generation TV set with much better picture and resolution.

Think about it.
Fixing it can be more expensive than purchasing new one this days.

Basically, you turn on TV with the input button and change to TV
