Cant turn tv on

I cant turn my tv on. is this a common and easily fixed problem? my LG 42" HDtv will not turn on the power light is red. normally when i turn my tv on the first light goes from yellow to green while the second light stays orange. Today it just went from orange to red.
I have tried to use the help option on my logitech remote. Then restarted my time warner cable box and nothing happened still. I unplugged the tv and let it sit for about ten minutes and replugged it back in but now there is only one light and it is red. It goes from orange to red when you attempt to turn the tv on. I hear the little whirring sound that normally happens but nothing happens.
This morning my son and I were watching a cartoon no where near the tv and it just shut off in the middle of the show.
So it worked for a little while anyway.

TV wont turn on. Red Standby light is lit and TV is getting power

There are two capacitors in this TV that went bad. They should be 1000uF by 25 volts along with any other common parts that went bad. You can tell if they're puffed. This repair generally costs about 150-200 dollars.

Red/green light keeps blinking.

This issue is related to a bad/failed power supply inside your TV.

Call LG to see if your TV is still in warranty. 800-243-0000

If not in warranty, the power supply is about $225.

Good luck. I do hope that I have helped you.

My lg tv wont turn on.

First, I would try leaving the TV unplugged for an hour so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
If this doesn't work, it maybe something simple like a blown fuses inside the TV that needs replacing.Radio Shack or some electronic store will carry the fuses.
If the other two ideas doesn't solve it, we're talking about a power supply board related problem. I can't actually look at your TV over the internet. But, the most common problem with flat panel TV are the power supply board for the screen itself and the main power supply board for the rest of the TV. Commonly a bad capacitor or transformer will be on the board.
If you have some electronic experience and want to repair it yourself, you can sometimes find a Service Manual for your TV over the internet. Normally, costs less than $20. It will have diagrams, schematics, and part number list for the TV.
