I just had that problem. Save a lot of money & change your lamp. It is behind a 6 by 6 plate on back of your tv , held in by 2 screws, cost about 300 dollars, they say these last about 2 years. Changing it yourself will save you paying someone to come out & also a diagnostic fee, about 200 dollars.

You might have blown a fuse inside the T.V., I blew a fuse on plasma screen or I also blew some other things, costed me about $200 to fix! Also, take it into a tv place to get a diagnostic check! Sorry about spelling, Im in a rush!

Could be the fuel pump. Try hitting the bottom of the fuel tank a few times while someone try's to start it, if it starts then the pump is on it's way out.

14 month old Prima 36 inch lcd tv takes 2+ hours before on.

If you purchased the warrenty extra above the cost of the tv Sears will allow you to purchase another extended warrenty. Contact them and let them know your extended warrenty ran out and you would like to buy another. I would leave out the part about the tv being broken.

LG TV not turning on

Yes you can get this fixed and it is still worth it. It may cost $200 but it should last a long time.

Vizio 50" plasma TV less than two years old - picture color is wrong. Shut off TV for a few minutes, color corrects and then problem starts over again.

call the manufactuer right away if the warranty just ran out a few months ago they will probably still honor it, but first disconnect your cables and reconnect them make sure they are on good and tight. other than that not much you can really do good luck

If your TV is not turning ON, the power supply is defective. It's a bit hard to find service parts for these TVs, the only way to fix the power supply is to replace the defective parts.
If you need more info let me know or you can write to
