Shuttle83, That is such a generic answer and I dissagree. If someone gets the schematic for this set they won't be able to tell a thing. They won't be able to read it as it is from China. I would suggest they take the back off and visiually inspect the power supply board. If the capacitors or puffed up at the top then they may want to try a power supply board.

It sounds like you have a power supply problem. I would suggest that if you are going to effect repairs on this unit yourself you get a schematic of the set and use a multimeter to test the power supply levels. This is good for a starting point, if you need any other assitance you can contact me or any of the FixYa experts to aid in additional troubleshooting.

Here are some basic steps that will help you fixing the problem.
I'm assuming that your unit is dead set without an standby LED
light and your outlet is live.1.Power cord - check the cord it might be opened (no
continuity).This is due to frequent bending,pulling. 2. Power switch - check for dry joints, open contact. 3.Check the internal fuse-
sometimes the fuse fail because of the power
surge, replacing with new one will cure the problem, If this is the case I
would advice you to use surge protector/AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator).
However if the fuse blew again this is an indication that you have a shorted parts in the power supply, you may visit the
link http://www.fixya.com/support/r8053361-fuse_keeps_blowing for more info. If no reaction and
still the unit didn't power up then you have an open parts on the power supply.
4.If you see that the fuse is intact , don't attempt to touch anything
because there some fatal components
stored electricity enough to hurt you with a simple mistake only. I would
advice you to look for a professional
to troubleshoot the power supply. If you want to repair it yourself make sure
that you have necessary tools and test
instrument. First check bad solder joints(re-solder all cold
solder), leaky electrolytic capacitor(sometimes
it has bulged at the top but not
all, you better have a capacitor checker), open/shorted regulator transistor/IC(mounted
in heat sink), open fusible resistor
(caused by shorted regulator Transistor/IC), shorted zener diode.
Also check if your unit is under warranty before opening the back
panel, it will void the warranty. Avail it because the manufacturer of your
unit will fix it for free or a little charge only.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using fixya
