Zenith p42w34 will not turn on

Got a zenith p42w34 from a friend... the tv will not turn on, and no LEDs or any sort of lights turn on, and i cant hear any noise coming from it either. it sounds like its totally dead. any suggestions? i assume i have to take it apart. also, does anyone have an electronic copy of the service manual for it?! i cant find it anywhere on the internet

    yes it does have dual power buttons. when the power button on the actual tv is pressed in it still wont show signs of life, even when i press power on the remote as well

Before Opening, double check something for me and post a follow up. I have this tv and I believe it has dual power buttons. One main and one secondary. A remote can't turn it on unless the main power button on the bottom left is on. 
Please post follow up.

I have 3 black stripes on my Zenith 42


Turn off the TV then unplug it. Disconnect the cable connection and clean the terminals. If the stripes still exist, you have a bad TCP (tape carrier package). It is responsible in transmitting color information to the display panel from the X-Drive (A-Bus) Board. This is not an easy repair. Service of an experienced or a qualified technician is recommended.
