I'm apparently pretty cursed with these machines. This one went for, like, 19 days... It's about like an instant replay of the last one: I came home tonight, turned it on to warm it up, about an hour later I hit standby and-- zip. Zilch. Nada. The difference between this problem and the last one is that I can clearly hear the HV "crackle" when I power it up and the last one had nothing. Everything checks out OK (CRT's are all on, PS L.E.D.'s are all on) but the tubes aren't lighting at all. No internal help screen or test patterns, either. Does anyone remember the HV code for the remote? At least if that's the problem I have another one (actually 2) to put in What is wrong with these damn things--- grrrrrrrr!
