Re: no power

Unplug the tv press power on and plug it back in.
some of these units have a reset clearly marked on the back.
connect direct to wall as the surge protector may now have issue.

Had early morning power outage, when power restored the red pwr light comes on and a click is heard and the pwr light go's out. tried unplugging from outlet, no change

If you do not have a surge protector, when the power came back on, a high voltage spike probably damaged sensitive electronic components. Always use a surge protector for any device that has electronic components. The higher the joule rating, the more energy that can be absorbed.

Samsung HLN617w won't turn on

How old is the surge protector you used? Because they only last for so long and can absorb so many surges. I hate to say it but it sounds like your TV sustained a power surge.

My Sony KF60XBR800 keeps shutting off while also triggering the surge prootector. What is causing this and is it do it yourself fixable?

surge protectors only work in one direction--from the power supply to the machine and are there to dampen a sudden over voltage surge in power supply-- lighting strike or power surge after grid failure or outage
I am thinking that the unit you keep switching on is an earth leakage unit or circuit breaker that is in the system to prevent electrical shocks from bad insulation or low performing components
if that is the case you have a potential short in the unit and should have the machine checked out at an appliance shop

I have a Mitsubishi projection model WS-B55 that is plugged into a surge protector. The power went off for about an hour or an hour and a half this morning, and the power light is flashing. I called...

First, to answer your last question, not all power outages and subsequent surges are created equally nor are all surge protectors. Also, after a power outage where the subsequent surge is so strong that it got past your surge protector and knocks out your TV and it's never done that before... REPLACE YOUR SURGE PROTECTOR.
However, that being said, in my experience it is unlikely that the TV is going to require a technician. Understand that the person that you spoke with in tech Support is not a technician and is reading off of a list of troubleshooting pages that are more extensive then what's in the manual. What the technician is probably not aware of is that your TV, like most home electronics, has a safety failsafe that requires the device to be separated from power completely before doing a system reset
First, after pressing the button it's supposed to flash for about a minute anyway but I'm assuming that after it's done pressing that the TV is still not firing up.
Unplug the TV, let it sit for an hour, plug it back in (to the wall, not the suspect surge protector). If the light is still flashing, press the reset button again and wait for it to stop flashing and attempt to turn it on again. If it doesn't work, unplug the TV, follow the same steps however, let it sit for 24 hours before plugging it back in. That length of time is not common but some sets do require it.
If none of this works, then I would say that it's time to call a technician.

I turn my tv on and the red light next to the power button just blinks. i can fix it just need an idea of whats wrong

most probably a faulty power supply within the tv. Considering the age of the tv this is most likely to be the problem. To prevent this kind of wear and tear in the future use a decent surge protector and it will prolong the life of your components.

Cannot turn on tv

it sounds like the power surge got past the surge protector and damaged one of the boards in the back of the tv. it may or may not be worth fixing depending on what you want to spend on it

If your TV is not powering on you probably blew the power supply. These TV are sensitive to power surges. Be sure to use a power strip with power filtering technology (different from a surge protector) costing around $80.00
