I have an old Samsung 32 inch television (LA26B450C4), LCD. The televisionís red power button was coming on but absolutely no background light and obviously therefore no picture could be seen. I took it in to the local fixit and they say the TV is working just fine however after bringing it back home it still didnít work here. The Fixit guy told me to bring it along with the same power cable to see if it would work there and it did, right before my own eyes. He said that a month ago a lady came in and claimed the same thing was happening to her LG. She could take her TV to a friendís house, plug it in and it would work but not in her home. I tried different power cables, direct plug to the wall instead of multi-plug in-case it was some sort of power issue but still no luck. The entire home is filled with computers, TVís and laptops and no problem except this Samsung 32 inch.
Twilight Zone crazy problem, please help!
So just to elaborate on the technical side...
The TV with its back light and internal software that shows input status etc comes up on the repair manís premises but on my premises not even the back light comes on.
There is no small mindless fault or issue that Iíve missed as Iím often the solution guy to fix family and friends pcís when they break down so I got more than half a brain on me. The fact that it works on another premises and not mine is just twilight zone man, geez!
