Hi, Make sure you have adequit power to TV 120v AC. If not get electrician to make changes for this..
Make sure TV cord has not been freyed or cut.Replace if needed.
If red light is flashing you will need to get new power supply in back of set. You will need techy to replace this. Good luck.

I had the same exact problem as posted above. My 50" LG plasma was out of warranty for 1 year! I called the LG executive call center, and they were very helpful. They offered to pay for the parts and labor. They recommended a few local repair shops, and they set everything up for me. The tech came out within 4 days with one part. The tech had to come out one more time the following week, since more parts were needed for the repair. The Y sustain board, along with 2 adjacent parts that are required to be replaced as a set, and the power supply had to be replaced (parts alone cost just over $900). TV is like new again; I'm very happy with how LG handled it, and made what could have been a bad experience a good one.

I would take it back. I know from purchasing an Insignia LCD from them a while back, the TV just died after about 4 or 5 months. They ended up offering me another TV or with store credit. I took the store credit and chose another TV. I also did not have a warranty. I was told since it was Insignia (which is a Best Buy house brand) that replacing it was not a problem. Good luck.

I had the same problem and had the TV serviced and found that the y board was blown $350 total. The repair guy explained that the board has a hot transister underneath that slowly leaked onto the board, but says that they can not get Samsung to admit to the problem. Works fine now but only have a 90 day warrenty on the parts.

Commonly it's going to be a power supply related problem. The two boards that need to be looked at is the Main Power Supply Board or the power supply board for the screen. The one that powers the screen, some manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board.
If you have some electronic experience, you can sometimes find a Service Manual for the TV over the internet for less than $20. It will have the all resource material for repairing your TV model. It's just the matter of replacing the bad part on the circuit board.
