Sure seems like a bad design or a batch of defective parts. I have the same problem. Tried a work around that worked for a day and then it is back to the same problem! Got it to work, but when I turned it off, it would not turn on again. Seems like the controller box has some kind of flaky part in it. The LCD panel itself is OK. Too bad you can't use the TV without that external box.

    OK. Here seems to be a solution that is working now. Unplug both the AVC and the panel (I used a power strip to make this easier by just turning off the strip and back on again). With the AC removed, press the "MAIN POWER" on. Next, press and hold the "VOL (--)" and "INPUT" at the same time. Finally, plug the AC power back in and the set should come on.
    After it came on, mine was in a factory test mode. I had to enable the write mode (I think it writes to the PROM) and then selected the second line down on the first menu (1 of 15 ) to have it do the restore or something.
    Finally, my set came up with OPC enabled to auto and it seems to have a sensor issue. At night, the monitor is unwatchable with such low light. So, I turned on a bright light near the monitor and set that to "Manual". so far, for two days and nights now it has been working again. I hope this helps. Good luck! -Brad



Same problem here... just happened yesterday... fortunately it is under a contract.

No power output or standby light flashes.

Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

TV will not turn on just green blinking light

If you paid a low price like $20 to $60 for the lamp it may not be an original replacement and may have failed.
But another thing it could be is to check the lamp cooling fan(s) where you might have to take some of the TV apart to do it.
If they have lots of caked on dust it would kill a lamp due
to inefficient cooling.

Display powers of with power up of AVC

how many blinks does the red light give in a row? This would be an error code?

The problem for 7 blinks would be an Interface board. Apparently there is a glitch in the interface board that sends signals to the television. Basically the glitch shorts out the board and the t.v wont turn on and you will see the power light blink 7 times pause then 7 more. You can replace the board with a new one and update the software on the new interface board.

If is isn't 7, let me know and I will help you out with this
