Something inside is loose, so it's time to buy a flat panel tv or spend $50 to get it repaired.

    Usually when something drops, there's little you can do other than bring it for repairs or toss it out. I don't know what magical incantation you were expecting to get it to work again, but if you can find a time machine and go back during the mythological age it's worth a shot. Also don't ever lazily leave any machine on an unsteady surface for fear of it dropping and becoming a large paper weight. Hope you learned your lesson.

Double check power cord. If you can borrow a similar power cord and it works wala that was easy. But it may be something more. Owner's manual trouble shooting may help. warranty? email or call Customer service number in owner's manual, Usually they are helpful if your nice.

Tv fell off the stand onto a carpet floor now wont turn on


Possible that the fall has damaged the mother board and so there can be CRACK ON THE MOTHER BOARD. So you need to remove power cord and check using a good inspection lamp on the board for broken circuit board. Use a good soldering iron with wire strips to join - take care not to short circuits as each line must be tested for short and continuity.

32" TV fell over onto carpeted floor and won't


It's probably a write-off. The circuit board inside has been cracked so that some of the copper traces that connect parts have broken. This commonly happens around the area of the horizontal output transformer, which is heavy. The shock of the fall causes the transformer to bounce and breaks the board. Other areas too may have been damaged because of flexing. And worst, the picture tube can be damaged in a fall, so it either doesn't work at all or shows permanently distorted colors.

It's tough to find anyone willing to repair a set that's fallen. Many circuit board tracks are very narrow and hard to repair. Then it's difficult to know if all the damage has been found and repaired, so even if the set starts working a technician doesn't know if something else won't go wrong. And then there's that bad tube possibility; no technician likes to spend lots of time fixing a broken board only to find the set then needs a new tube. Trust me, this has happened to me several times during my career in TV shops.

Your best bet is to use this as an excuse to buy a new LCD or plasma TV. 40-inch models, a good size match for a 32-inch CRT (tube) model, are reasonably priced.
