Thank you so much for your reply. The boat concerned is a shared boat, and my husband is the Boat Manager. The people who are on the boat this week cannot get the tv to work, but I do;’t know the specific problem.
The only check I can suggest is "Is the standby light on?", as the
commonest problem is that the power is off at the wall or it has tripped
Either that or the remote control has a flat battery.
Sorry if that's not much help, but the local TV guys want an arm and a
leg to prize them out of the workshop nowadays. If they are passing this
way, I can have a quick look as they pass Longport, but my workshop days
are long gone.
Tciao for Now!
Many thanks John, for your help. Both of these things have been checked, which is why we need an engineer.
Just to be clear, you are absolutely sure there is power reaching the tv
from the socket on the wall (or whatever)?
I spent 30 years as a university electronic engineer (not a tv repair
man as such) but in that time I realised that most electrical problems
were actually mechanical - usually of the 'air gap' variety!
Other common faults were fuses that looked ok but weren't followed by
bad solder joints.
