Tv powers on but no picture or sound

I have a problem with my hitachi when i turn it on the red power light turns on but i get no picture or sound. has anybody experienced similar situation? im in the process of looking for a repair person but would like to know possible problems so i dont get ripped off. i have limited knowledge of electronics (enough to get myself in trouble) so i'm trying to get a feel of how common and difficult it is to repair a problem like that.

The fan may have went bad. If it's out of warranty you may open it up and try and blow some dust out of the fan to see it that may do the trick if not it may need to be replaced.
