Hi zippie, Based on your post/description, I am inclined to suspect the backlight which is actually a CCF a small fluorescent tube about 2mm diameter the width of your display either at the very top or bottom of the screen. At times it can also be the inverter circuitry that powers up the said tube. One way is to run your PC and display as if nothing is wrong giving it a minute or soto finished booting everything. If looking closely you will notice semblance of your desktop albeit very faint, very dark or using a flashlight provide illumination to the display at an angle and the display is there, then chances are it is the backlight. Otherwise, it can be the input circuitry. Of course you have to open the monitor up and replace the defective component, More often than not no soldering required. Hope this gives you an idea or two. Lots of luck and pls post again how things turn up. If

I have a Curtis LCD TV. The red standby light turns on when I plug it in, but will not turn on (either by remote or the physical button on the TV). What could be the problem?

There could be a list of different problems. Usually, the red lamp will blink in a particular sequence, which tells the tech which board is most likely the problem. This is not a 100% accurate, because another board that has an issue, could cause the first board to interpreted incorrectly by the microprocessor IC(computer within your TV)

Sony KDL 46HX820 turns on, then off and red light blinks four times.

Re: Bravia KDL46EX720. Red LED blinks 4 times and TV wont turn on. What is the problem?

Do a Power Reset.

1. Turn off the TV.
2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. (If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.)
5. Turn on the TV.

If the issue still persists after performing power reset, that may be an indication that the TV needs service. You may refer to this link to locate the nearest Sony authorized service center in your area.

TV will not come on, red power light clicking off and on.

This problem is caused by a couple of faulty electrolytic capacitors located on the power supply pcb. Think they are both 1000mfd 35v

Will not turn on just clicks and red light off and on

The cycle clicking comes by following reasons:
Power supply defective.
Mainboard defective.
Other boards defective. TV needs to check to isolate correct problem.
As far as I see, the 46" LCD has common problem of the power supply.
