Recently bought through EBAY above tv, there's a problem with the on/off switch. Tried to get it repaired from local repair man - advised no parts available. Trying to locate a Bush Manufacturer to advise if problem can be repaired and if so where. Been hunting internet for hours, not very computer literate, any suggestions would be appreciated

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given.
Sounds like the IR sensor in the TV may be faulty, since you have now tried a couple remotes. Make sure nothing is on the IR sensor like tape, plastic, etc. IR sensor repairs are a fairly cheap and easy repair that can be done at your local tv repair shop. If you are still in warranty you can call Philips and tell them that you tried 2 remotes (1 brand new) on the TV and neither work. They should offer you a repair option. If you have any questions regarding your Philips warranty let me know.
i would take the tv to another repair shop as it sounds , although i cant be certain, that your xsus ysus, or buffer boards have failed. Even if all three went i cant see them costing a $1000 to purchase.
Search ebay of google for "power supply for bush Model number .................." Youll get the model number from the white lable usually on the rear of the tv. It may be an independant supply that youll be able to replace easily yourself or if not a tv repair shop may actually be ably to repair your original power supply at usually under £100.
It is a common Fault on some lcd tvs you will need a replacement switch mechanism fitted don't know the correct name for it but it can be fixed .I had exactly the same problem with my BUSH 26 inch LCD tv took it to a local independent tv shop and the owner repaired it for me it cost around £67 if my memory is correct this fault started on my TV 14 month after i bought it - 2 month out of warranty. hope this response helps
Now if it came with any warranty card, you may try any of the distributors in your country that sell the item. Warranty is not governed by who you bought it from it is with the manufacturer. I would be saying that it was a gift from a friend for your birthday or for services rendered and ask them if they can return it for fixing under warranty. They may want proof of purchase, and that is where lies the difficulty. But give it a go
