Hi...sorry if this is kind of wrongly placed. I just want to be able to get into ko on my computer and I can't because of my TV, and off topic or tech support will get less views than general. For my sake, please don't move my topic. If you want, please just delete the post count I gain from the topic, or just move it or delete it when/if the problem gets solved or I give up. If not though, and it's moved - I understand.
To start off. I play KO on my other computer. I'm on one of my laptops making this topic.
When I play ko on my other computer, as a monitor I use a big screen HDTV. I'll just refer to that as my tv.
The TV's standby light is on, and blue, indicating that it is plugged in and powered on, displaying whatever it is supposed to, when the light is red, it means it is plugged in, but not in ON mode. When there is no light, this means the TV is not plugged in at all.
Sometimes, when I come home from school after merchanting all day, I find that the light is blue, just like I left it, except for that there is no picture or sound. Nothing. Also- when this happens, I can't even turn the TV off. I have to unplug it. Usually, under these circumstances, I just unplug it, plug it back in, and after 1 or 2 times max, the picture comes on like always and I can use it.
Today, the case is different...
Same problem as usual. The light is glowing blue, no picture, no sound, no control. Can't change inputs, enter the menu, no response from the TV what so ever. I was home at 1 PM today and found this problem, and of course, started working on it immediately. I wanted to play KO :P
I still have yet to be successful...I unplug it, replug it in- turn it on. Nothing. Just a high pitched noise that starts after about 5 seconds of the light becoming blue when I press the ON switch after plugging it in. I've heard this noise before, never thought much of it. Now it's kind of worrying me.
I've been unplugging and replugging it in since 1 PM...it's 8 PM now
I've tried letting it sit unplugged for as long as an hour, trying again, to no avail.
I've tried checking the cords in the back of course...everything right where it is supposed to be.
I know this is a problem I should consult with the TV's maker about. Or call about my warranty and have them fix or replace it. But I can't find the documents right now and figured maybe someone could help me if they've had a similar problem in the past or know something about this...
Thanks to anyone who provides any insight...
