My 32' Magnavox LCD TV won't turn on

First of all, let me say this is probably karma catching up with me, because yes, today I was watching TV when I shouldn't have been! I am working from home with my new baby and had the TV turned toward the dining room table, where my work things were set up. The TV was on, with FIOS, and I grabbed the stand to turn it back around into its corner of the living room. The TV went off, and now I've tried plugging, unplugging, manual, remote, etc. and nothing gets it to come back on. The outlet is good, as all other items are running fine - just the TV won't come on.
I've checked all plugs and connections, too - any suggestions?

    Hey, that's what I thought - something along those lines, that is. I am not near Philly...too bad! But can probably fix it myself if you can help me know where to find the fuse, once I get it open.

    Okay, so I just take the screws out and pop the front part apart from the back, right?

    Okay, got the screws out but the back still won't come off...suggestions?

    You are right - don't have the right screwdriver and the baby is screaming bloody murder...looks like a project for tomorrow...

Magnavox 32MF301B/F7 32 in. LCD TV - my TV turns on by itself. What can I do about that?

Is it in a location that allows the sun to shine directly on it? Sometimes the light can trick the infrared sensor for the remote. Also, does the TV have any self timers enabled?

Tv went off and won' come back on.

Most likely you will have to replace the power supply. It is a very common problem especially in newer electronics. You can test it with voltmeter or multi-tester. They tend to get worn capacitor inside the power supply due to cheaper parts
