Try unplugging the set for 2 minutes first then try operations again. If that doesn't fix it maybe one of the buttons on the TV is stuck or the remote control is sending erratic commands.

SOURCE: won't power, light goes green 5-10 seconds later red flashing light

Solution Found.

I had the same problem with my 42FD5994. It was working fine, then one day I turned the TV on and the front light turned green for about 5 - 10 seconds and then the TV switched to protection mode (front green light is now red and flashing constantly). I did some research and found out the the power board is faulty. I ordered a DIY fix it kit on Ebay for around $55 (includes shipping). The kit contains 5 high temp capacitors and a new IC chip. It also comes with a good detailed photo of the circuit board the components that needed replacing.

I also spent $70 at Radio Shack for some soldering gear and went to work. It took me 3 hours to replace the 6 components. The IC chip was a pain to remove, but one that was out the rest went pretty smooth. I had to remove two extra blue capacitors in front of the IC chip to desolder some of the leads.

After I cleaned the board with Isopropal alcohol (99% pure) to remove the excess flux, I inspected the solder joints to make sure I didn't solder some runs together. All looked good.

Next I put the TV back together and hooked everything back up. I powered on the TV and the same problem as before. The TV went into protection mode. But this time I heard the speakers pop and the screen buzzed. So I pushed in the power button to reset the TV. Next, I turned the TV back on, but this time when the light was green, I quickly pushed the power button again to power off the TV. I tried the TV one last time. I powered the TV back on, and with the remote I turned the TV on. Viola! It worked. The TV powers on great, and works like a champ. I am guessing that the first time I tried to turn the TV on, the new components needed a minute to energize. I also started the TV cold, I should have plugged it in for a few minutes before I tried turning it on.

So, I was successful fixing my 42FD5594 with the DIY kit on Ebay. I ordered it from California. The company was great, and Everything arrived well protected. I figured if this didn't work, it was time to get a new TV anyway. I can save the $2000 for another day.

Had the same issue, I replaced two 1200uf caps on the power supply board and now it works fine again. Remember to replace the caps with caps rated for at least 35wvdc.

Have similar TV. If it is set to the PC source, it goes into standby when there is no signal, like a regular monitor. Even though the monitor is in standby, you can still press the Source button to change to, say, HD input, and will use the familiar on/off action when pressing Power on the remote.

A little weird, but I've gotten very used to it.

I have a magnavox tv model 26MD255V

You need to unplug it let it drain the power for a few hours. Unscrew the back panel and Look for the blown capacitors on the PSB power supply board. Power supply board is usually in the center and it will be printed on the board itself. The caps should be completely flat (X)-top cap view. No puffed split or bulged caps. A solder kit w flux from harbor freight or radio shack and a set of new Thru hole caps is what your going to need.

Probably bad inverter board. It has a short in inverter board and as soon as it powers up it detects the excessive current draw and shuts the set back off. Open it up, unplug the power supply connections to the inverter board then try to turn it on, if you get a green light then the inverter is bad. Try E-bay for replacement board.
