Re: won't power up
It seems like there are power failures on these LCD as well. Sometimes it could be an easy fix as stated by IMRoach but is some cases is not or the failure is in a different assembly. In about 95% is the power supply that failed.

MY TV died over a year ago and for some strange reason I never got rid of it. I recently (today) replaced two capacitors and it works great again! It wasn't difficult to solder them on- and this was the first time I've touched a soldering iron. Open the back... you will see which capicitors are bad because they will be swollen. I ordered new capicitors online (Radio Shack didn't carry them). Just make sure that you solder them on in the right direction. The first time I tried the capicitor immediatley blew, the TV started smoking, and it left the room smelling of funk for a few hours.

It seems that the set itself changes inputs. Place it remote control away from the vicinity of the tV. and check. If it does the same, do a hard reset next. To make it a hard reset, unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and replug it back after 10 minutes or so. If these do not help you, be sure that the main system control memory IC to it is faulty and should be replaced.

The software version decides the function that coincide with remote signal. If the remotes' infrared signal frequency differ to the receiving spctrrum of the software, it won't work well. You must have the remote of the present TV itsef to work in coincide with the button actions. Just get it. There is no other way. OK.
The flashing timer light blinks out a code, where it flashes some number of times, pauses, then repeats. The code indicates what fault is keeping the set from coming on. Unfortunately, all the codes tend to mean that there is some electronic problem with the TV. Unless you have some electronic servicing skills and the necessary equipment to troubleshoot the problem, you'll need to have set checked by a professional. For any code there can be many causes, so I can't offer any other advice.
This might be a good time to check sale prices on LCD sets. Let a technician check the set and give an estimate for the repair, then decide.
I'msorry I did also attempt to locate a Prima remote code within DISH Network's database aswell but unfortunately I was unsuccessful and have found no remote codesfor the TV you have. However, we can still attempt to program the DISH Networkremote to the Prima television without a remote code, this would be done bycompleting a Power scan. If you decide you would like to program the DISHNetwork remote to your TV using the power scan, I have included instructionsbelow to further assist you.
Withthe desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button (In this casethe mode button will be "TV") until all the other mode button back lightsilluminate, then release.
1.Pressand release the Power button.
2.Pressthe Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment.
Note: If the code for the equipment comes up, theequipment will power off.
3.Pressthe POUND (#) button. If the codeentered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
After successfully completing the power scan to program the DISHNetwork remote to your T.V the remote should now control your TV. I hopethis helped! Please feel free to let me know if you have any other questions orneed additional help. -Kirstie DISHNetwork
I don't know if you have this problem but I had a similar problem aswell. My TV remote and my universal remote wouldn't turn on or perform any of the funtions as they should. This is what I did to fix it:
1. unplug the TV from the power outlet.
2. take the batteries out of your TV remote.
3. press the power button on the TV remote, and then press every other single button one by one from left to right (as if you were reading a book).
4. plug the power cord back in the power outlet.
5. replace the batteries in your TV remote.
6. try turning on the TV using the factory remote.
These steps, as weird as they sound, worked just fine for me. My TV is now responding to my remote and my cable remote is able to control the TV again. No, I did not loose the universal (cable) remote's TV codes. FYI. the steps mentioned above were performed using the TV native remote (factory remote). Hope this will work out for you as well. And if you are wondering how I knew this would work, well I saw the same steps on another website (sorry I can't remember which website it was) and decided to give it a try before I took the TV back to BestBuy for warranty repair...which would have taken like two weeks.
