On turning the tv on the green light comes on as if to turn on but never does, and the light turns red again.please help.
I had this same problem with an LCD monitor several months ago. It turned out to be a blown capacitor on the internal power supply board. If you are handy with tools and have a soldering iron it is a pretty simple and inexpensive fix. Otherwise you will likely have to pay someone to do it. I highly recommend a professional if you are uncomfortable with soldering. To replace the capacitor yourself:
1. Open the Television. This step can be a challenge as manufacturers often hide screw under stickers and labels. This allows them to tell if the unit has been tampered with. By doing this job yourself you will void your warranty.
2. Locate the power board, it will be right where your power cable connects. Inspect the capacitors on it to determine if any are blown. The top of a blown capacitor bulges outward slightly, whereas an good capacitor will be flat or slightly indented.
3. Not what type of capacitor is damaged and head over to radio shack. A capacitor is pretty cheap, no more then $5.
4. When you remove the olde capacitor, make sure to note which wire is positive and which is negatice, so when you put in the new one it is correct.
5. After soldering in the new one, the TV should work just fine.
