Question about Emerson LC320EM9 32 in. LCD HDTV
The power supply board is at fault. You have a shorted diode. Location of this diode is D639. Replace it with an NTE 5087A. The board you will fix, has the power AC cord attached to it! Thanks for asking, Matt of Martins TV.

I had the same problem. Mine gave out in 4 months. Those boards are hard to find right now. Google the the board# BA71FOFO1042 and someone like (buyjimmy.com) I think will sell TV parts. If not, you can fix the board itself like I did. Mine was a bad inverter transformer. If you need the parts# for anything let me know, I have the Service Manual for the TV. Good Luck

1. On the power inverter board unplug all 6 wires that go to the LCD screen.
2. Test each of those ports for resistance.( the one without the resistance is the bad one.)
3. Or, test each port for Voltage output ( this will happen very briefly since the TV will turn itself off automatically).( The one without voltage will be the bad one).

SOURCE: I have an emerson flat screen that will not turn on ? The red stand by light comes on, but when you hit the power button the green light comes on then shuts off quickly and the TV will not come on?? A
Try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most cases with the Emerson TV, the Inverter Transformer goes bad on the backlight Inverter Board. It's what powers the screen for your TV. If it can't power up the screen, it automatically shuts off. Basically, they call this "Protection Mode" with this happens.
You can get a replacement backlight inverter board at this web site link:
Just make sure the board number matches your board.
If it fixes the problem and you decide to throw your old board in the trash, I would like to keep the damaged board if possible. I want to do some research on the board to find out what really causes the transformers to go bad. Here's my e-mail email@example.com

I've had the same problem with a 32" model LC320EM82S. All the Emerson TV ( no matter what size ) are having the same issue.
I'm sure with your TV, the green light is blinking before the TV automatically turns OFF. Basically, the TV is trying to power up the screen and has failed. Protection mode turns the TV OFF to prevent other parts from being damaged inside.
My solution for fixing my TV was replacing one bad inverter transformer of six on the Backlight Inverter/Power Board. Here is what my board looks like:
You can see the six inverter transformer on the bottom of the board. It's what supplies power to the screen. Your board may look similar. You can sometimes find a whole replacement board over the internet for a good price. Shopjimmy.com is a good place to start. Just start searching by your TV model number.
If you have some electronic experience, you can repair the board itself by finding a Service Manual over the internet for less than $20. It will have all the part numbers, schematics, and diagrams you need. I would investigate the inverter transformer for your problem.
I hope I helped you out with your problem.
