    We had the same problem. They replaced a capacitor (not specified) and degaussing circuit.. So far so good.

    We had the EXACT same problem - TWICE within 12 months. The repair guy said it was a common problem on this particular model. The first time they replaced a whole board, the second time they replaced just a fuse on the board (because they had run out of replacement boards). Now I've noticed that the screen is unacceptably dark no matter how much I fiddle with the controls.

    As it takes the repair guys about 3 weeks to respond I thought I'd try to access the service menu myself but cannot find the remote button sequence anywhere. (Off, Info, Menu, Mute, On does not do it). Does anyone know it?

    All this TV has been broken for 6 weeks of the 54 I've had it. What a piece of.... Never again Samsung...

    I'm in the process of geting the problem solved also. Turn the TV on and in a few seconds it "clicks" and shuts down. Won't restart until you unplug and replug. Sounds like I'm in good company. Wish I knew this problem prior to purchase. The first hassle I had was that this model doesn't appear on Samsung's website. Like they've disowned it already! Tough to get their support when they don't show this as a model.

    Same proble on our TV purchased January 14 2008.  First the red light turned on.  Now nothing.  This must be reported to the consumer union, for a possible recall.

Shorted problem. Maybe in primary or secondary power supply. Need a repairman. Busted regulator, or shorted diode.

My LG TV red light won't turn on. although the plug fuse and the remote OK

Try manually pressing the power/standby button on the tv (side or bottom) the red light should appear, most modern tv's will turn on simply by pressing the channel up or down on the tv itself.. But unfortunately in most cases, this seems to be an internal surge and needs a professional to inspect..

Hi, The red light shows there is power connected to the set. The fact that it won't power up is due to a problem with the power supply circuit in the set. or a problem with the switch circuit or the mains power transformer.

Polaroid 26inch lcd tvred standby light on but power wont turn on. I've unplugged the tv, changed the batteries in the remote. The tv stays with the red standby light only.

You need to open it up and checking the voltages in the power supply sections, you should have 5v (for logic circuits), 12v for sound, 24v for backlight inverter circuits. Look for bad caps with bulging tops in power supply also.

Tv went off while watching a program power standby red light blinks 6 times then pauses then repeats tried unplugging unit waiting a few minutes then replugged same results nothing. can anyone help me ?...

Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link -

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
