No power The tv simply has no power, not even the red indicator light is coming on. This happened without warning. One day it worked fine, the next day...nothing.

    We're having the same problem with this TV. With the exception that every so often it does come back on and work for a while. That leads me to think it has a failing component inside that gets over heated and shuts the TV down possibly. The TV worked decently for just over one year beyond the purchased Kmart 2yr extended warranty. I would also like to know if there is a fix for the problem without having to take it to a repair shop and also if it is a possible fire hazard risk to our home if it is left plugged in. The TV cost $135.00 plus another $20 for a 2yr Kmart ext warranty. A repair shop bill would probably exceed that cost. Three years use of a TV and then it just fails is just not acceptable. Bit of a rant here: Sylvania is NOT Sylvania the trusted good old brand it once was but rather now just a name bought by Funai to deceptively sell their cheaply made products. I truly believe that is deceptive trade practice and buyers beware. End of rant. Sorry, but people need to know.

I meant to add to my posted reply to this problem in that we're having the same problem with this TV:

This is a possible solution to the problem that unfortunately did not work for us. When we called the 1-800 support number for Funai, the tech on the line had only one suggestion other than it needing a repair shop fix. He suggested that we unplug its power cord for 45 minutes. This, he said,"would let all the power drain out of a big chip inside on its switchboard and let it reset itself upon being plugged back in". Sounded silly to me but in regards to being reset it does sound possible as most electronics these days do need to be reset time to time to fix troubles. I must add in regards to Funai that the tech was very kind, compassionate, empathetic and helpful regarding our trouble with the TV. I say that because I ranted against Funai in my eariler posting. I still stand behind my thoughts on that rant though because deceptive trade practices are basically a form of stealing hard earned money from a person for a product that is sold to them under deceptive practices. Buyer beware.

Tv will not light up.

I do not have expertise in cable TV systems. A power failure when you have the TV connected to a system which is normally always on or on standby may need resetting if interrupted. Try the TV on an aerial or with its scart input, but disconnected from the cable unit. The blinking red light indicates a fault

Is this a Toshiba or an RCA? The problem description does not seem to be right. From what your saying though it sounds like there isn't any high voltage. If you are not qualified to work on TVs you probably should take it to a shop for repair.
