The TV develops a low voltage which a simple microprocessor uses to turn the power supply on when you use the remote or TV power button. Sometimes sets will show a red power light when the TV is in stand-by mode which turns green when it turns on. If you don't have that and don't hear a click when you first plug in the TV, you probably have a power supply problem. If you had a power surge, it could have blown the AC fuse. Try replacing it with the exact same rated fuse and you might get lucky. If it blows again, it will need service.

Turn on no pic no sound. Tried power downno luck. Pulled all wires off and then reattached. Any advice is appreciated. This tv was bought in 2010.

If totally dead check out power supply first. If some life then suspect your main board which deals with both audio and video.

Picture pixelation

TV manufacturers know that a certain percentage of TV's will end up with dead pixels. I believe there is an app called UDPixel that can fix dead pixels on monitors and TV's. Google it.

Have you checked whether mains power reaches the power board? Check it first. If yes, the power board you purchased newly should be checked.

Lcd tv totally dead

Follow the money or the voltage here- standby power appears to be up but if so why no standby light up front? Have you checked all the caps in the supply? The 5 volts should be for the micro so this sounds like either main supply/standby not up or something pulling it down..

The real clue here is set has no power indication of standby---you are aware of the reason the caps fail in the standby power supply?

Just trying to get an idea of how much expertise you have.
