This is the third television I have had go out in my living room. All 3 worked at other locations just fine and when they were placed in the living room within 1 week they were "out" no power at all. I was told the repair would be $400. Is this something I can find on the internet and do I truly need an outside professional to fix?

Re: tv wont come on at all
Run an extension cord from another room to see if the tv still works. It sounds like faulty wiring in the living room that needs to be checked. Also, check for a tripped circuit breaker for that area of the house. Can't tell you about the repair but, you will save yourself some time by checking these things out first.

TV may be on the wrong input and that will give you a blue screen. When you turn the TV on and the screen starts lighting up it should show on the screen what input the tv is on. If it is not on correct input change input with the TV remote or buttons on the tv. If it is on the correct input try a power cycle on the cable box, just unplug the cable box power cord for a few seconds and then plug it back in. If neither of these solve the problem describe how the cable box is connected to the tv.
The first thing I suspect is a lamp failure. These TV's will attempt 3 times to start the lamp. Each time the TV will step the voltage up a bit to see if it fires. Basically after the third attempt its like saying three strikes and your out. The lamp part number will be located on the side of the TV on an orange and white sticker that says lamp code. The part number will start with BP96-. If that sticker is not there you will have to pull the lamp out and look at the sticker on it as these sets are notorious for using a minimum of 3 different part numbers. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks..
Since it is a rear projection and the screen is black and there is no sound, I decided it was way past time for a new one. If I had to replace all 3 bulbs, it would be approx. what a new one would cost anyway.
Try pushing the buttons on the remote and let me know what comes up on the screen if anything.
Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up
a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred.
Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC.
We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described
above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink
Replace the convergence ICs. you will need two of them. They are located on a large aluminum heat sink with STK numbers. They cost about 10.00 each. They need to be soldered in. Its an easy repair if you can solder. Let me know if you need any additional info.
