Re: tv will not turn on
A: Is there a humming sound coming from the TV set? Check the brightness/contrast. If nothing still, remove power to the set for 24 hrs. and reconnect and retry. If it's not coming back up, the PCB ("motherboard") for the set has most likely died. Check for warranty information in your user's manual for further instructions.
B: Is the TV sharing an electrical line with a wall switch? Remove the set from that circuit and try another outlet. If not, follow the Steps for "A".
C: Was it during a power storm, when it went blank? Check the outlet with another appliance - if that device works, try the Steps in "A".

What brand and model is the t.v.? Usually a red blinking light is a code meaning something is wrong. Watch how many times it blinks and post the brand and model of the t.v. and how many times the stand by light blinks. First unplug it for at least 2 minutes and re-check all the cable connections to make sure they are plugged into the right places. Then plug the t.v. back in and turn it on first before you turn the cable box on. Good Luck, hope this helps.
Check all your channels. If you are getting sound on some channels but not others it is a good possibility that your SAP setting is turned on. Simply go into your audio menu and disable the SAP. Not sure about your model tv but some Tv sets had a switch on the back to disable the speakers and some have a setting in the menu to disable the speakers. If you have a digital cable box hooked to the tv it is possible the cable box volume is turned all the way down which will override your tv volume. Check these options and hopefully one of them works for you.
i have the same exact problem what i figured out is that i cant watch cable on it but when i hook a vcr to it i can watch movies. but when i hook my dvd player to it the block comes back on. so i hooked my playstation 2 to my vcr and hooked my vcr to the tv and i can watch dvd's that way. thats all i have sorry..
If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
Turn the set on, hook the cable directly to the TV, take the remote control and press 1 - 1 and if the TV tunes in channel 11 then your set is fine. If the TV was autoprogrammed when hooked to a cable box then the only channels that will be stored in memory are 3, maybe 4 and AUX. To correct this simply go back into the menu and look for the "autoprogram" option and perform the autoprogram while the cable is directly connected to the TV, without a cable box.
