Does this model have a removable power cord? Check to make sure that the cord is inserted fully if it this type. Also, Have you tried to turn on the set using the front panel control?...accordianman

My Acer TCO03- power button is just blinking but no picture display

Blow hot air into the back with a hair dryer before trying to start it.

(not kidding)

if that works, one of the capacitors on the power board went bad.

even if that does NOT work, one of the capacitors on the power board went bad.

It is ALWAYS one of the capacitors on the power supply gone bad.

Being unplugged for a few weeks - as you stated - drained it of "juice", and it just cr*pped out. It was going to fail soon, in any event.

Fixing it can cost you less than a dollar, if you Google for information.

Best of luck!

TV will not turn on

Check the wall outlet, make sure there is power at the wall. If not, check the breaker panel. If there is power at the wall, check the TV for a manual on/off switch. If you have a power switch on the TV, turn it off, wait 10 seconds, then turn it on. If no power switch on the TV, unplug the TV for 10 seconds, then plug in again. Use the remote to turn the TV on. Check for a fuse or circuit breaker on the TV, usually near where the power cord enters the TV.
Make sure you have good batteries in the remote. If all this fails, then something may be damaged inside your TV, as a result of a power spike before the power went out, or when it came back on.
Take it to a repair shop.

Wharfedale no power

Let me guess - you left it connected to mains and on standby while you were away?
This is incredibly common and the reason why manufacturers recommend unplugging them from the wall when not in use for an extended period.
This was likely brought on by a power surge that occurred while you were away. It may just have affected the PSU, then again it may have indirectly affected the Main AV board. In the worst case scenario (though this is rarer) it may have affected both.
I would check the PSU for any swollen capacitors. If you don't find any then it is a toss up between which one I would try replacing first but I would probably lean towards the AV board.
Please note: I say 'I would' deliberately - if you are not confident with electronics, I would advise against attempting to repair the TV yourself as - if you make a mistake - there is risk of electric shock or fire to worry about.

Vizio TV wont turn on after three weeks no use

My vizio recently did the same exact thing. Vizio sent an HDTV tech out to fix it and it was the power board. He put a new board in (took 15 min) and the tv works like new.
