Re: No power to my tv

The reason could have been a power surge(lost power in the whole house while you were out)or a lightning strike specially if you have no indication of power(no lights,no click sound),if this is the case you can start by checking the main fuse and it should be close to where the power cord comes in the tv,if the fuse is black you can expect more damage ahead and it will blow up again as soon as you replace it,if the fuse is not black replace it with the same kind and try it,if the unit does not power up you will need the assistance of a service technician to diagnose the problem.

Power button stuck

If the light is still blinking that means electricity goes in to the tv, you have problems after the switch , is a complicated circuit just to say where the lies.

Tv will not power up

Press the TV button or ON/OFF button while remote is in TV mode and there's a source of power to the outlet or outlet strip.

Make sure the TV is plugged in.

You might have tried to turn on the TV during the lamp cool-down. Wait a few moments and the picture will appear.

Has the power light on the front of the TV been blinking for one minute? If so, the lamp may be dead. Refer to the Power indicator
is blinking or flashing section below for more information.

When you first plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on the front panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds
and then go off during the initialization of the TV. This happens only when the TV is unplugged and plugged back in. The TV can
only be turned on after the Power indicator goes off.

Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else, such as a lamp.

Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the
remote control solutions on page 53.

Multiple TV Setup might be set to the wrong option. Press MENU/OK on the front panel. Select Setup Options, then Advanced
Options, then Multiple TV Setup. Choose TV (default).

Remote became unuseable. Tried system reset button numerous times. Currently unable to use front panel controls or remote to turn tv on.

Almost hate saying this but in your case it applies. Unplug the TV from power for a couple minutes and then plug it back in. Also on the remote itself make sure when you are pushing buttons the the "TV" button lights up indicating that the TV is the device being cotrolled. If that doesn't work go to the MFG's website and look for answers there 1st...hope that helps you!
