When i plug it in and try to turn it on, i hear a click and the 'Stand by/Timer' light just keeps flashing. cant change the channel, cant work a menu... the screen stays black. i tried hooking up a game system... show more alright, my friend gave me this tv he said was working fine. 23" sony 'trinitron(?)'
