Plasma TV-power light does not come on

My 42" Plasma TV has always been plugged on the outlet. Today, I found there was no red light on the TV. I tried to unplug and re-plug, there was no power come to the TV set. I don't see there is any place for fuse replacement or other opening that I can check. Any suggestions? The red light is out tried the cablevision remote no luck,tried the Lg remote no luck. The set was not used for a week, not sure how it was turned off by a guest.Do not have amanual as it was not kept after purchase by husband. Help! The cablevision box is working as the green lights come on and move with the remote when changed

The fuses are inside the TV is you remove the back cover but even changing the fuse it might not work because it could have other failures in the other board assemblies.
How old is your plasma?

You have a power malfunction. Recheck your power connections. If the TV still persists in behaving in this manner don't try to turn it back on, but do find out if the TV is worth repairing. Most now are made so cheaply that nobody will try to repair them. I've always bought used televisions, even when they had vacuum tubes. I bought my LED at a major store's resale outlet and saved a bundle. (Quite frankly, TVs and other electronics today are so complicated and untized and made so cheaply- and sold so dearly- that if one goes bad you don't even bring it in except for them to verify it. Then they give you a new one. They're simply not worth repairing to the companies. and its an opportunity for them to sell you a better one at a discount. Of course, if you are under warranty, you might be all set. PS: those extended warranty contracts are not worth the paper they are printed on and no smart consumer ever buys one. they're for suckers) Good luck.

Why won't my Panasonic 42 TCP42S30 42 Plasma TV turn on.


Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service
technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

AKAI 32" LCD HDTV WILL NOT TURN ON


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 jah2mil@hotmail.com

Describe the past - How did it fail? One day or acting up for a while? Could be a weak power supply - a bad capacitor on a power supply too. Look for popped up capacitor top inside.
