My new TV - 3 weeks out of warranty - has just stopped working, no power to it at all. Have tried plugging it in to various sockets, nothing. Tried chaning the fuse, still nothing. Any other ideas before I call in the repair man!!!

next time send the full model number,if it's under 1 year it's still under warranty so call whoever you bought it from or call the 800 number off of the model number tag on the machine,one thing you can try,run an extension cord to the fridge and plug it into another power source and see if it runs or plug a light into the socket you have the fridge plugged into to make sure it's not the plug,if you have gfi's in the kitchen one of them could be tripped,seen this before,fridge shouldn't be connected to gfi but find them like this,if you open the door and no lights or nothing is on you have no power,if the socket is good,remove the back panel and check the power cord,i found a guys fridge would power down just the lights on the board on the door that controls the machine,thought i was the board because the lights inside were on,it was the power cord,went in the back and moved the cord and board would light up,very strange,loose connection on the cord.if these things check good call the factory,if you mess with it you could void the warranty.good luck.
Problem: No video,no audio, and no indicator.. Solution: Is this a new television? If so, then plug something else into the same socket.. If the socket is working then you should examine the TV to see if there are any signs of the electricity to the TV (exterior.. do not take it apart). If there is no electricity in the TV then it may have a bad power supply or a bad cord. Best thing would be to take it back.. Most TV's come with a warranty.. If the warranty has expired you can usually talk with the store and even with the manufacturer appealing to them that the TV should have lasted longer... I usually ask them if they can make a consideration in this case.. Sometimes they will. I once got a brand new Sony Digital camera that was out of warranty because I reasoned with them that a $1000 camera should last longer that one year and one week (that is when it went out).. Negotiating is powerful.. At least you are taking a shot... Who know? You may win. If the TV is used... Same as above with the tests.. I have repaired my own TV's before BUT I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BECAUSE IT IS VERY DANGEROUS. There is a high chance of deadly shock within the TV.. Don't take the TV apart yourself! You can find a used TV on Craigslist.. I have even seen people giving working TV's away because they just bought a giant screen or something....
My friend bought a Poloroid tv, similiar to yours. The power supply went bad 2 weeks after warranty expired; he had to pay to have a whole new power supply installed - roughly $250. Two weeks later my Toshiba (same age) won't turn on - no lights or anything. Same thing - power supply. Sounds like yours is in the same category. Hopefully you bought the extended warranty.
could be dead, but check to ensure that you are using the monitor ONLY, not TV tuner device. as a standalone, not hooked to cpu if there is no power light when plugged in assume your buying a new monitor.
