    Thanks, but I figued it out. It's the flyback Transformer that went bad. Had it replaced along with a few capacitors for about $200.00.

Whenever issues like this pop up, the first thing to do is look for ruptured or bulged capacitors. But be very careful not to touch anything unless you know how to discharge the set! Often when capacitors dry out, they don't filter voltage properly, and a ripple detection circuit kicks in shortly after power-on and shuts down the system. Look for a capacitor (they look like litte short batteries) oozing any rust-colored stuff or bulging out the top or bottom (tricky to see, but if the set is discharged a dental mirror helps). Usually the big ones go first. They are cheap to replace, and often fix the problem. If it's more complicated then that, I can't help you

The continous red light merely means power is getting to your TV. From your description, it is likely the internal power supply has failed

Will not come on it worked fine earlier.

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Yet another hissing/buzzing noise from back of TV

Good day.

Check for the horizontal output transistor, flyback and filter capacitors.
Any of these being shorted can cause the problem.
