Re: black screen

If there is a bad or stuck cooling fan, it will trigger a shutdown condition. Make sure they are all clean and running.

I have a Plasma TV with black screen and 6 red light flashes.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

TV does not turn on? (Relay problem?)

The power supply could be failing intermittently. That's why it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Also, the relay could be erratic.

I am no expert, but I would be looking for a replacement or warranty on that unit.

Unfortunately there is very little an every day user can do to fix a problem like this on their own.

My Panasonic does this periodically. I have to unplug it for a moment and then plug it back in. Sometimes it will turn right on, sometimes I have to press the on/off button. I wish I knew the root cause.
