Re: No indication of power what so ever

Yes, a computer power cord is the same.
Without physical sign of damage, it will be hard to induce the movers to cover the problem. You will need to take it into a reputable TV shop and get their evaluation that whatever is wrong is due to the move. Its odd that it failed while off, however of course all these new TVs are not near as reliable as the old ones. Might just be a dislodged connector inside.
Hope Ya Fix It!

for more than 3 seconds.

Self-check indication and forced to factory shipment setting:

Disconnect the AC cord from wall outlet.
This is straight out of the service manual.

How do i turn the television on i just bought it from the store

Either by your remote or manual. Some models have a master rocker switch close to the ac input where your cord plugs into. That kills all power to the set for vacation purposes.

Ps-42p2st samsung plasma 42" does not power on!!

A computer cord is the same as the original. Go to any Radio Shack or TV shop and ask them to check the fuse to see if it is good or bad. If it is good, then suspect moving damage. If the fuse is bad, the person checking the fuse should be able to suggest a proper replacement. After replacing the fuse ( only if it checked bad), re apply power and hope the set comes on. If the fuse blows a second time, you need to call a technician. One other thing, some sets have a vacation switch that can accidentally get pushed during a move. Consult with the owners manual to verify if your set has one.
