Panasonic Flat Screen Model No. CT36HX42F won't turn on

I have a Panasonic HD TV, flat screen, approx. 4 years old.
Today it just would not turn on, no sound, no lights, nothing. Checked outlet, OK. Is there a fuse I can replace and if so, how do I get to it?

    I have the same problem with the same model TV. It just randomly shut off one day and would not come back on. I left it unplugged over-night and still wouldnt come on the next day.

    My TV just did the same thing! I contacted Panasonic and they told me to leave it unplugged for an hour. I have done this and it is still happening. If anyone finds the solution to this, I would love to know. I have had no problems with this set until now, but am now leaning towards not ever getting a Panasonic if it is going to break after only 6 years.

Plasma screen does not come on and power supply board is bad

When the Plasma TV is plugged in, there're a fewindications of normal operation. Knowing this will help usunderstand what's going on with the unit when anabnormality occurs.1.There is a click from the relaysRL402andRL403when they are activated.2.The LED in the Optical Jack inside the DT board turns on for approx. 4seconds.3.Immediately after that, one of the Tuner LEDs (Right) turns on(Solid Red)for approximately 20 seconds.4.The LED in the Optical Jack inside the DT board turns on again for approx.1 second and both LEDs (tuner and optical jack) turn off.5.Then you will hear another click from the relaysRL402andRL403indicating that they are no-longer engaged. (Note: At this time the Tunerand the Optical Jack LED turn off.)5

Blank screen beko lcd 26" lcd tv - sound ok (model no. L5A)

While you have sound, take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, look very close and see if you can see a dark video image.
Let me know what you see.
