Question about Televison & Video
There are a few things that can prevent the tv from turning on.
Bad power supply, cord damage, burnt out flyback unit, shorted out bulb, burnt electronics(most likely cause) .
All these things can cause it.
Most tv's that don't turn on are caused by capacitor failure.
This is because the caps are like batteries that get charged over and over and over again.
Eventually, they won't charge up anymore.
Sometimes, it is because the cap gel inside of them was made wrong at the factory.
Some have defective casings that split apart.
Some swell and bulge, like a bad battery does.
Some can even explode likr a balloon.
You will want to have it taken to a business that has specialists in this specific repair.
I would go to Fry's, or BestBuy, they both have techs trained in capacitor removal and replacement.
Get an estimate first, then go compare repair cost vs. replacement cost.
Isay this, because the repair may be more expensive than buying a new tv.
I hope this helps you understand what's going on with your tv, and good luck to you.
