A couple days ago I went to turn my tv on and when I pushed the power button there was no activity coming from the tv. the only thing that happened was the light on the power button would blink. I tried unplugging the tv and noticed that even when the tv was unplugged the button still blinked for a couple mins. I left the tv unplugged over night and the next day I plugged it in and tried again and the tv turned on and everything worked. the next time I went to use the tv the same thing happened and it hasn't turned on since. I know theres nothing wrong with the screen or sound cause it worked ok after the problem started. if anyone could identify the problem and provide me with a solution that would be great. I'm trying to avoid payin a lot of money for a technician.

Re: tv not powering on
As per your statement
there is a loose contact in power supply section of your tv.
it is 1oo% sure that allthe parts are ok as
tv runs ok when it comes on.
but you will have to call tech. as without knowing technology it is dangerous to open tv due to high voltage.

the problem is that the tv was probably set to pwr on only with remote control.........i have the same problem and lost the remote...........BUMMER! Trying to figure out how to reset the programming without the remote.
Hi, I had the "Ghost In The Machine". I tried out what I descibed in my original posting.
#1. I unplugged The Set.
#2. I pushed in and held in the power button in for about 5 minutes before bedtime. ( The PC trick I learned) I gave it 5 minutes because a tv set has much more power inside it.
#3. I again pushed in and held the power button in again for 3 minutes the next morning.
#4. I plugged the tv in again. The red standby light was lit. The set did not immeadiatly come on when I tried to power it up.
#5. 5 Minutes later I returned and hit the power button on the remote and it came on like nothing ever was wrong.
#6. It has been fine now for 3 days!!! Powers up when commanded and shuts down like normal. It has yet to come back on or act up as it was doing.
I will keep a watch on it and if it starts up acting again I will repost. I hope this information will be of use to anyone who experienced the same problem. It didn't cost a dime, just some patience. Thanks for a forum that people can exchange information and save trouble and money unless all options are exhausted. Bill
check the main fuse in the tv. test it with a multimeter, not visually. if its the thermistor that blew the fuse, it is very difficult to see the break in the wire. replace if blown. if unit blown fuse again withing a couple of weeks replace the thermistor in the degausing circuit.
This could cause a problem, because modern TVs and most other entertainment electronic goods, have a small kind of computer chip, but there should be a Reset button probably inside the set!
If you feel confident about computer chips you may be able to find the button by tracing the circuit.(Disconnected from the mains).
Another idea is if there is a small button cell or battery inside, then try disconnecting it for a day.
