Try unplugging it for 30 mins. If it still has the problem, it may have when into protection mode.
When this happens, a part in the TV when bad. The protection mode keeps the TV from staying on to prevent further damage.
At this point, I would use the warranty on the TV. Being that it's only 6 months old.

I followed the solution e-mailed to me. My 50 in. phillips magnovox plasma had no sound or picture. I removed the back panel of the tv ( 55 screws) and removed the circuit board in the center of the tv. There are about 5 or 6 wire connections that you have to unplug, but they are all different in size so it's ot a problem when reconnecting. Take the circuit board to a tv repair shop. There are 2 capacitators side by side at the bottom center that were bulgeing. 3300ua 10 volt. I had them replaced by the repair shop while I waited. They had (1 ) 25 volt and (1) 16 volt available. The voltages do not have to match each other. The higher voltage is better. I put the tv back together and HURRAY!!! it works. I have been searching for a solution since last summer, Thanks to fixya.com my problem has been solved. It only cost me $35.00 total.
I thought the tv was going to the curb, thank god I didn't toss it. I hope this solutions works for the endless number of people who have posted this same prolem. GOOD LUCK!!!

The most common failures with LCD/ DVD combos is a failure in the DVD transport mechanism. The DVD transport mechanism is an easily replaced subassembly, that can be purchased for less than $200 in most cases. The best bet is t replace this mechanism ensuring that you purchase it from a vendor who will purchase it back if it dos not fix the problem for some reason.
In the event that the DVD player replacement does not solve the problem, the second most common problem is LCD's is the power supply module. Assuming that you do not want to have a shop repair this unit, search for a power supply module online and replace it yourself, ensuring you can return it if it doesn't resolve the problem.
There are other things that cause that symptom on LCD tvs that are beyond the scope of this discussion.
