TV Question

If this is the wrong group,please direct me to the proper group.
It's a regular Zenith table model, 32", still under warranty, hooked up to a rotary antenna. The TV will not turn on using either the remote or the panel on the front of the TV. The red standby light is on. The other TV works fine, hooked up to the same antenna. Please diagnose and advise. Thanks, Jack

He could be asking here because
(a) it's Saturday, and he can't get warranty help over the weekend;
or
(b) he might think he can get an answer here more quickly than waiting on hold for hours to speak to somebody at the manufacturer/dealer;
or
(c) all he has is carry-in warranty service, and there may be a simple answer that saves a trip to wherever.

You might try pulling the plug for 5 minutes or check the manual to see if there is a reset button.

Just a thought. Does it have a feature to lock the front panel and do you have kids? Sometimes our kids will go through the tv menu and accidently lock the front panel (buttons on the tv won't work). Oddly enough, at the same time the universal remote needs re-programmed. Sooo, the tv won't function. Remedy: unplug the tv for a few seconds.

Don't understand it, but it works.
