Make sure your lamp door is completly latched. there are saftey switches in your set that will not let the TV operater if not properly closed.

Will not turn on

check the convergance board for open pico fuses located near the stk amps if they are open the you may have a yolk problem as well. also check the blue gum for cloudy fluid this may be the reason the perfect focus got stuck. if you should get the tv to fire up go to the menu then select reset factory in the convergance menu of the customer menu. this will pull the convegance back to tollorance. the trouble is that when the convegance amps fail customers tend to perfect focus the set and each time they do the convegance memory goes further from tollorance. thus failing the ICs once again. check the pico fuses 1st this is a tell tail sign of those two conditions (yolk, or out of tollorance).

"on" light flashes twice and then "blacks out"

IF power light comes on and a few seconds later goes off, do the self check this model has.

On front of set when this happens, press and hold both the menu and input (device) buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and then release both buttons.

Watch the power light closely, it should blink a two digit error code like; 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and then repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it means.

Solution is simple....

First, unplug power cable from the back of your TV. You will notice the flashing light is still flashing. Don't worry, go to the Second step.

Second, keep pressing on the POWER button, located on the panel at the top of your TV, to shut off your TV. This will stop the flashing light from appearing.

Third, Plug the power cable back onto your TV

Fourth, press the POWER botton ONCE, using the same button used in the Second step to turn your TV back on.

Fifth, you will see the POWER light comes on, as normal.

Sixth, using your remote control, press the green button to turn on. Your TV should work as normal.

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
