hey! I'm facing problem with my pw286006/01. the problem is, the tv switches on but goes off immediately. however, after a several try, the sound comes but the picture doesn't. yet making another few tries, the screen goes off with a bright blink and the red led light (power switch) gets brighter i.e the tv goes to standby mode. again, with few tries the picure comes but stretchy when the picture mode is set to widescreen/ super wide. to get the tv compltely fuctional it takes about 20-30'. being functional, there appears stretchy black areas on the right side of the screen. I havn't yet taken it to the repair shop. but waiting here to get an exact identification of the problem from an expert in the forum. hope somebody here would help me out. thanx

I had a similar problem with a magnavox 13 inch television. What I tried was to remove the fuse, clean the fuse and contact surfaces of the fuseholder with a dry rag, and them reassembled. Also try unplugging and replugging a bunch of power connectors inside the TV.

Metal contact surfaces can build up an invisible layer of metal oxides or other dirt that impairs electrical conduction.

This cleaning problem is very rarebut sometime it work if the Tv is rarely used.
