Probably a bad capacitor. if it cant hold the charge it will not power up the screen. it could have a blown fuse too. a local computer shop should be able to check them and even replace them. and they should be cheaper than best buy too.

SOURCE: won't power, light goes green 5-10 seconds later red flashing light

Solution Found.

I had the same problem with my 42FD5994. It was working fine, then one day I turned the TV on and the front light turned green for about 5 - 10 seconds and then the TV switched to protection mode (front green light is now red and flashing constantly). I did some research and found out the the power board is faulty. I ordered a DIY fix it kit on Ebay for around $55 (includes shipping). The kit contains 5 high temp capacitors and a new IC chip. It also comes with a good detailed photo of the circuit board the components that needed replacing.

I also spent $70 at Radio Shack for some soldering gear and went to work. It took me 3 hours to replace the 6 components. The IC chip was a pain to remove, but one that was out the rest went pretty smooth. I had to remove two extra blue capacitors in front of the IC chip to desolder some of the leads.

After I cleaned the board with Isopropal alcohol (99% pure) to remove the excess flux, I inspected the solder joints to make sure I didn't solder some runs together. All looked good.

Next I put the TV back together and hooked everything back up. I powered on the TV and the same problem as before. The TV went into protection mode. But this time I heard the speakers pop and the screen buzzed. So I pushed in the power button to reset the TV. Next, I turned the TV back on, but this time when the light was green, I quickly pushed the power button again to power off the TV. I tried the TV one last time. I powered the TV back on, and with the remote I turned the TV on. Viola! It worked. The TV powers on great, and works like a champ. I am guessing that the first time I tried to turn the TV on, the new components needed a minute to energize. I also started the TV cold, I should have plugged it in for a few minutes before I tried turning it on.

So, I was successful fixing my 42FD5594 with the DIY kit on Ebay. I ordered it from California. The company was great, and Everything arrived well protected. I figured if this didn't work, it was time to get a new TV anyway. I can save the $2000 for another day.

SOURCE: TV not turning on.

Mine was doing that and I ordered a replacement power supply board for it and now it work. It's fairly easy to replace.

SOURCE: red light blinking, tv doesn't start

Your TV is in Protection Mode right now. A part inside the TV has failed and the TV will not turn ON to prevent other parts from being damaged. The red light blinking is an error code for diagnosing the problem part on the one of the power supply boards. The problem boards that need to be looked at is the Backlight Inverter Board or the Main Power Supply Board.
There is a slim chance you can leave the TV unplugged for an hour so the TV can discharge and reset itself. But other than that, I would use the warranty if possible. The TV repair shop maybe expensive, so get some price quotes to see if it worth the trouble.

Problem with Proscan PLCD5092A-B I replaced the main board with no luck :

Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Green power light comes on for a split second, then red.

The power supply (AC adapter) is bad. It has enough power to light the red LED, but not enough to power the TV.
