Dead tv

I'm wondering if anyone has had this issue. I have a 25' class c, the tv is located in the bunk over the caband the tv has decided not to work. there is power to the outlet but tv wont power up. The only thing I can come up with is that it does get very hot up there and that might have caused the issue. rv is only 3 years old.

Use an extension cord and try plugging it in somewhere else.

Is it a 12v or 110v tv? If 12v, check the fuse in the plug.

Heat is indeed a major enemy of electronics, so that's a good bet. Maybe you could add some vent holes and maybe a small "muffin fan" to help circulate air. Any of the zillion computer fans would work if you have 12v nearby, but there are 120v modes too.

Sadly, finding someone to fox a tv these days is near impossible, plus it would probably cost as much as a new tv anyway.

I have had two TV’s go out. What I did to fix them is I took the back off and tightened the ground screws on all boards and they now work. I found this idea on YouTube as an way that might fix them. They have been working over a year now. You might give it a try. It may be a simple fix.
