    I have the same problem, I checked the fuses inside the TV. I only found 5 fuses. All are in good order and none are blown. What now?

In most cases the fix for this is simple if you know how to test and find blown fuses. The same happened to mine and it takes 5 minutes to fix and $4 from radio shack.

1) turn off and unplug the TV
remove back panel from TV (like 5 to 10 screws)
2) locate the small fuses on the circuit board -- they are slightly right of center and kind of hidden behind taller componets. There are several, some "standard" size, some shorter GMA-type. In my case it was one of the shorter GMA 4 or 5 amp ones that had blown.
3) find the blown fuse with a test meter (no or limited continuity)or by taking each out and giving it a visual inspection. DON'T TOUCH ANY OTHER ELECTRONIC COMPONENT -- some parts can retain a electric charge long after the TV is unplugged and you don't want to get zapped!
4) replace with fuse of same type
5) re-install back cover.
6) enjoy!

As a note, while I was in there I cleaned my 3 CRT lenses, they where very dusty, used a Canon optic lense cloth.

Also, I have found that once my fuse blew for the 1st time it happens now periodically (once every 3 months or so), so I assume it is a symptom of a greater problem, however this fix is so easy and I keep extra fuses on hand that I haven't called tech to check it out (TV is kinda old anyway).

If you would like a better explaination than this, search the web because it seems to be a common problem and there are a lot of posts on it (

No power output or standby light flashes.

Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.
