No Power to my TV after power outage

We lost power, (not a storm) and when power was restored tv would not turn on. We checked the outlet and the fuse. Is there anything else I could try before taking it somewhere for repair? This tv is only 2 years old.....I'm hoping it's not a loss. It was working perfectly fine before we lost power. It was not on when we lost power. Help?

Last night, my Panasonic television went off due to a partial electrical power outage that affected my house. After the power was restored, the TV would not come on. The electrical outlet being used is good. I was looking at the parts list for the TV at Panasonic website and saw a fuse (6.3A-125V) listed. Maybe an electrical surge last night burnt this internal fuse out and that is the only thing I will need to replace. I wonder if this was the fuse that Leen14 was referring to in the original post that checked out good. Any additional information will be greatly appreciated!

A lot of times its simply a fuse that goes out. Either way someone is going to have to open it up and inspect the fuses first. It 's a fairly inexpensive service call.

Hopefully the fuse took the hit from the storm.

Just had a power outage from a thunder storm all lights came back except for tv and cable. how to fix?

Please check the power to the TV outlet. If there was a surge it could have tripped off. So confirm this before we go further to check.
If the power is present then there is failure within the TV , it can be the fuse but if the fuse blows off then the SMPS unit can be faulty.
So please check on the link below for tips:

We had a power outage during a lightning storm this past weekend. We turned on the TV the next morning and it stayed on for 20 seconds then turned off. We rebooted it and same results. Thers is no audio...

Try power cycling the TV. First, unplug ALL cables from the TV, This may sound silly but there can be minute amounts of power coming from your other devices like the cable box or BluRay player and that small bit of power is sometimes enough to hold an electronic device in a particular state. Once they are unplugged, unplug your TV from the power source. Leave it out for a full 60-90 seconds.Reconnect your devices first, then reconnect the TV to its power source. If this does not work, there may have been damage done by way of a power surge.

We had a power outage today and our tv won't turn on - there is a green flashing light on the front panel and that is it.

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

When TV is off and there is a power outage the TV

This TV has a Power Standby feature (pg. 40 of your manual) which allows you to more quickly turn ON the TV. When power is lost and then restored, your TV will display the HP logo screen while it boots the digital circuits. After it is finished, (unless it was previously turned on) it should appear to be OFF. This is normal operation. If you like, you can change this setting to LOW POWER. At this setting, each time you turn on the TV, you will see the HP Logo screen and picture/sound will appear after 20 seconds. Again, take a look at pg. 40 of your owners manual for more information.

Emerson tv lost the ability to power on after a storm

I would probably look at the internal fuse that protects the power supply inside the tv. The storm probably sent a power surge through your outlet, your breaker may not always work correctly, especially if the breaker is old. The fuse should be inline with the hot side of the AC power to the power supply circuit. You would have to open up the tv, but you would be able to spot the fuse very easily. Fuses are cheap, but getting to it may be a problem

During a storm we lost power just for a second. When the power came back on my tv was dead. I have a 15DLV76. What should I do?

Yep, thats the way power outages work. They usually destroy your electronics which is why you have to unplug just about everything. The tv needs repair.
