Question about SVA-USA HD4208TIIIBU 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
THE RED LIGHT IS GLOWING ,BUT WHEN YOU TRY TO TURN IT ON NOTHING HAPPENS.
It is helpful if you mention anything you have tried already.
Amazingly, dead batteries are one of the most common problems with 'nothing happens.'
For example; 'I changed the remote batteries and tried turning it on with the buttons on the set.
Or; 'We had an electrical storm and since then the TV doesn't work.'
Because our sets have become so complex internally, sometimes pulling the AC plug and letting the thing sit ignored for an hour or two, lets the electronics untangle itself.

The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to email@example.com

This sounds like you are experiencing the same thing as thousands of other tv owners right now.
Your tv is suffering from " capacitor flu".
The capacitors that control voltage regulation, convergence, or the ones on the main board have failed.
This is not due to anything that you have done, it is because about 15 years ago, some companies chose to put profit ahead of quality.
There were about 20 electronic component manufacturers in the mid-1990's that mass manufactured capacitors, and they were done so with the wrong formula for capacitance gel. They used a formula which was later determined to be harmful to the capacitors, but instead of pulling those off of the market, they ignored the massive failures and left then out there on the market anyways.
All together, the companies made a combined 50,000,000 capacitors that were junk, and instead of lasting the 25-30 year design like they were supposed to, some of them are only lasting a few months to a few years, at best.
Now, that isn't to say that this means that your tv should be tossed in the trash, but if you take it to get it repaired at places like BestBuy, Fry's, or Staple's...you will want to get an estimate of repair costs before actually having it done.
The reason for this is because to get the proper capacitors put in your tv is a time consuming, and expensive repair.
You may find that the cost of repair is more expensive than the cost of replacing the tv, or you may find that it reasonably priced to get the repair.
That is why I recommend getting an estimate first.
This way, you will know ahead of time which way is the most economically feasible venture for you.
I hope this helps you understand what is going on with your tv, and that it gives you some insight as to how to remedy the situation.
Good luck to you, and have a good day.
