This is what should happen: the power is delivered from the mains to the power board and it stays in a sleep state - just a small circuit that powers the remote sensor and the control processor is in idle mode = the status led signals that by being red; the command to start, either from the button or the remote, is received and the power source starts in full; this powers all the components of the tv and the processor loads its program = the tv starts and the led is turned to blue when the entire process has been correctly completed.
This is what is actually happening: a part on one of the boards inside the tv has failed and now acts as a short; when the start command comes the power source starts; this time the defective part starts dumping a lot of current and that triggers the protection system of the power source; in face of that excessive current draw it automatically stops the power source - effectively it forces it to shutdown almost instantly so the status led remains on red. It does that to protect the power source from overstress and complete failure.
The only way to find out which part has failed and replace it is to open the tv and test it - a good experience in electronics is required. If you don't have it all you can do is to look for obviously failed components. For that follow this
If you can't see any or this doesn't fixes it then you will have to call a repairman.

Mag LCD TV MA-32EF1AC has power but won't turn on with remote or with power button on side of tv screen

If neither the remote nor the tv power button has any effect then it is safe to say that you may have an issue with the power supply section of your set.

Is the red light suppose to stay on when you turn off the tv with the remote?

Yes it is supposed to stay on. This is the standby light. The television still draws power as do many electronic devices when not turned on and when in standby. If you do not want the red light to stay on you will have to unplug the television.

My emerson tv standby light is on the power light flashes twice

Mine stayed in stanby mode and all I had to do was to switch the plug to a different outlet. The power strip it was on wasn't providing enough power. It worked fine for a month before I had a problem.

Can't turn on from Stanby mode

I would assume the power board has a problem. A tech could possibly repair it without replacing the whole board.

LCD Tv MA-32EF1AC won't turn on

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
