I have had the same problem twice. The complete PC Board had to be changed on mine for it to start working again. The part usually runs around $150 not including labor.

Re: will not turn on?

A couple of easy things you could try is to unplug the TV from the AC over night, to let it discharge, and see if theres any difference, and also try to connect it to another power outlet. anything else is a bit tricky - if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set to a repair shop. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. Its possible that you got some dry joints, look for poor soldered joints on the high voltage side, and resolder them. Good luck

TV power button comes on to turn tv on & goes right back off but nothing on screen & no sound


This could be alot of things but I tend to lean towards a power supply issue. The short story is that when your tv starts up, it checks alot of things to make sure they are correct. If one of the voltages is off, then the tv protects itself and turns back off. In my experience when they turn back off its almost always power supply issues. It could be a card pulling down the powersupply, or the neat gizmo that powers the light. But I have not seen alot of that.

Generally if its not a power supply fault that the tv just cant tolerate it will flash a code at ya. Blink blink (Im messed up and here is the number of the fault) Blink blink BLINK!

I wish I had better news, however powersupplys are one of the cheaper and easier things to fix.

Best of luck

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
