    The TV was working just fine, we were watching a show and I went to turn the volume down and the remote didn't work, I got up to lower the volume manually and it still didn't do anything. Kinda annoyed! Now we unplugged it and plugged it back in and nothing works, won't turn on at all!

I have the same problem with my MWC20T6A (from Walmart), and I keep blowing fuses. I read somewhere that it's in the motherboard which is about $150 to fix. I'll never by a combo again.

No power coming from the TV, it wont turn on

The first thing would be to unplug set and remove back cover, follow power cord to fuse-----check the AC line fuse and if bad replace it.

If that fuse is good let me know if power light does or does not come on at the front of the set.

may be ur tvs lamp side have some problem. may be the lamp over heated and burned. just open its lamp cover ann check it.
also check its power supply input point(near fuse) there is an MOV (used for voltage surge protection) is burned or not. if there is any voltage surge it will get shorted and the fuse will blow off, protect the power supply for any further damage. check the fuse also. if found open then check the MOV. insert fuse only after replacing the MOV.

I was wathing tv when my light started flickering then the tv turned off now it wont turn back on please help

Hello, This is a sudden high voltage, it will require opening the television to check faulty component. First check for fuses in the printed circuit board and if found replace with same current rating. Also check other component such as the power transistor, resistor, rectifier with a multimeter set at ohms range

inspect your fusing unit carefully, do not use any sharp things, you can damage the fusing roller. see that the sensor is moving fine, that the separator are OK, not broken.
if thats not helping and you wont find anything, last thing is remove back and side covers, carefully remove TBU, unhook the connectors and remove two screws in fuser sides and remove fusing unit to inspect it a little closer.and find the problem.
