    TV no power, no lights, nothing.
    After internal inspection I have resoldered quite a few bad spots on
    this TV and on powering it up I notice it goes in standby. There is no
    button to press to switch it on, therefore I presume it must need its
    handheld remote unit. I don't have it.
    Is it possible and safe to bypass the circuitry of the standby
    function so that I can test the television.

    Any suggestion on how to would be appreciated.

    No power button at all? I would get one of those $6 universal remotes and
    see if that'll work. It'll come in handy for future repairs.

    It's not something as silly as pushing one of the channel buttons...?

    ** Works like that on my NEC - just push any button on the set.

    Hey boys,
    The TV only has the main power button which when depressed it puts the
    standby light on; there is no other button to switch the TV on; that
    is why I assume that it can only be operated from a remote.
    Pressing any other buttons has no effect.
    thanks for your input.
  6. On my European Thomson TV the power button on the remote only switches
    the unit OFF, you can't switch he unit ON with the power button. You
    have to press the OK button on the remote or one of the channel number
    buttons to switch the set ON. Same thing for the actual power button
    on the TV, it will just turn the unit on into standby mode.
    Incredibly silly stuff.

    Dave :)
