    same problem, tried to use the remove, tv wont turn on. Status light on the front (illuminated PRIMA) is lit, but does not change to blue (colour when television is on).
    Used both the remote and the side panel.

    I have the same problem except the prima logo will change to blue, but nothing happens. It has taken anywhere from 2 minutes to 2.5 hours to come on. I have sent it to the repair shop and they are having trouble contacting Prima about the part. Any suggestions?

    im having the same problem with Prima 32" lcd, no sound or picture. Seems to be an ongoing problem with Prima lcds. Found this website which has tons of horror stories and think best thing is to bin my tv rather than throw more money away trying to repair.

    I have the same problem. We bought ours at Sears about 2 years ago. Last week unplugging it, plugging it back in & pressing power worked. Today nothing is happening except a crackling sound!

A friend had this problem. TV worked fine, then one day when he turned it on there was nothing. We unplugged and opened up the back of the unit then to look for a blown capacitor in the power supply. The 820uf 35V capacitor was ready to pop it's cap. This is not a common cap so it had to be special ordered.( make sure you ask for the exact cap as the ones that were provided had to be modified to fit, to big) I replace the blown cap with a 1000uf 35V one just to see if the LCD would turn on, it worked. We ordered the new cap ( 820uf 35V) and replaced it with the 1000uf 35V. However we do have another issue yet to be solved or wavy vertical lines on the screen when the satelite of regular TV is played. Not sure if this is a bad ground or a leaky cap or a tuner issue.

You probably have some defective filter capacitors in the power supply. The tops of them may be domed instead of flat. Be sure to replace them with same values listed on the originals - slightly higher voltage rating is OK, but no less! Make sure they are rated at 105 degrees C and not 85 degrees.

Most likely there is a problem in the power supply. Sets these days are so full of safety circuits that most any problem will cause one to not come on. Hard to say. Thanks

14 month old Prima 36 inch lcd tv takes 2+ hours before on.

If you purchased the warrenty extra above the cost of the tv Sears will allow you to purchase another extended warrenty. Contact them and let them know your extended warrenty ran out and you would like to buy another. I would leave out the part about the tv being broken.
