This sounds like a power supply problem. You will need to take the back of the tv off and check for puffed capacitors. If they are puffed up, you will need to replace them with equal or greater slightly greater valued capacitors. The values are microfarads and voltage. Lay tv flat panel face down on a table with a blanket on it. Table has to support entire frame so the panel doesn't get damaged. You will need a soldering iron to install new capacitors. Please send me make and model so that I can do further research, but I am confident puffed caps are your problem

It can be that it has unstable power supply or the CPU/EPROM are getting scrambled by the noise and spike in the AC line, you may try better AC line conditioner to see if it will help.

I have a 42 inch plasma LCD T.V. that is about a year and a half old. About a month ago it decided to quit working, when I try to turn it on it would just click, so I unplugged it and left for about three...

Drew; i just copied & paste a solution from the fixya web site from people with the same problem. There must be 60 or more people, like myself, with the same issue you have.

Check out the site, everyone with this Philips Plasma has the same issue! good luck.

copied from another person that had the same issue:

I had the same problem as everyone on this board. my tv is about two years old and I had the same problem with the red light blinking seven times. I saw moldymacs comments and followed his advise. I opened my tv and noticed the two capacitors that looked bulged out on the top. they are side by side towards the bottom and are labeled 10v 3300uf. I went to my local electronics store and bought two for 1.20 then I took my board to my local tv/computer repair and he charged me 10.00 to remove the old and install the new capacitors. went home and reinstalled my board very carefully and problem solved. total cost was 11.20 and tv has been working fine....thank you moldymac you saved me a lot of money.

Television will not turn on

My 47" Vizio wouldnt turn on this morning.....had a similair problem 3 yrs ago.....this is what i did and fixed the problem myself.....apparently you have to reset TV. Here is what has worked for me. So unplug tv power cord from the tv. Hold the power button and imput button together ( located on side panel ) for approx 45 sec......plug cord back into tv. Press power button on tv and voila !!!!! Tv came back on!!! I have had my Vizio almost 5 yrs. But have to call the unhelpful customer service atleast once a year.... I hope this works for you :)
