Hi Stanely,
Can you switch on the TV with remote control? If yes, the power on switch on the side panel has gone bad and is easy to replace.

My tv has no power light. already checked plug and socket and all seems to be fine but still no red light

More information is needed.
Some tv's have a primary power switch along the side or bottom edges (not the small on/off button on the side). This switch is easy to bump when moving the TV. If the switch isn't your problem then you have a bad power supply board inside the TV.

Moved tv now wont switch on

First make sure the power cord is fully inserted in the back of the tv. Also, look for a power switch along the bottom or side of the tv that may have gotten set to off when you picked the tv up ( I've had this happen to me)

You should have cntrl buttons on your tv on the side, top or bottom of tv with INPUT select. If its an older tv it might have a cable / antenna switch. Might have to look around.
Hope this helps

Most of the RCA sets will have ON / OFF switch located at the side of the TV. If you can't locate it there, check the underneath of the front panel. anyway, if the set has switched OFF using the remote control, for the last time, you should have its remote control to switch it back ON, even if the main power switch is ON.

Cannot switch on tv

I have been noticing a lot of TVs wont come on. My sony did that becaue the switch on the back side of the TV got tripped. On most of the flat panel TVs is a switch for something I cant remember but before you call the TV repair man check it out. Im upstairs and the TV is down.

My flat screen tv is darker on the left side than the right side why?

Change input device to some other like a DVD player and see. Look for loose contacts in RC jack, cable and socket.

Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.

If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Volume keeps turning itself up philips lcd tv

this is due to surface mount capacitors going faulty on the side buttons panel. You can simply disconnect the cable from this board and use you remote to control the channels and volume. if you want it fixed you will have to replace the side button control panel which is a cheap part.
