No power to my tv

I checked the plug-in, tried to push the power button on the panel, checked the batteries in the remote, and still nothing. The TV is only 2 years old it worked fine till one day after work I came home and it would not turn on. What would cause this and how much am I going to spend if I cant fix it myself? HELP PLEASE!!!

The reason could have been a power surge(lost power in the whole house while you were out)or a lightning strike specially if you have no indication of power(no lights,no click sound),if this is the case you can start by checking the main fuse and it should be close to where the power cord comes in the tv,if the fuse is black you can expect more damage ahead and it will blow up again as soon as you replace it,if the fuse is not black replace it with the same kind and try it,if the unit does not power up you will need the assistance of a service technician to diagnose the problem.

Cant get the remote to work for menu options just started setting it up already programed to my direct tv remote now nothing is working or either remote t.v or direct tv remote

To diagnose a remote control problem follow these steps.

1) unplug the TV power cord, count to five and plug it back in. (reboot)
2) try to power on with ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER remote.

if that works- your TV and original remote are fine.

if that does not work:
4) try to power on with buttons on the TV itself- if it works- check your remote batteries and try remote again.

Direct TV and Dish Network remotes will ONLY operate SIMPLE function of your TV such as power, volume, input.
They will NOT access your TV menu.

Do i need a remote to operate tv

once you have front panel in the tv and this one shows power channel +- volumen +- menu then your tv has to work with those ones and the remote is a second option to do the same. With this i mean you tv has to respond and at least show menu when you push that button " if no signal (cable DVD VCR) plug in"
Then if the tv is dead you should try to repair or sent it to repair. and then get the remote control and it can be universal too.

Vizio 50 inch plasma -- remote not working

You can also try to take out the batteries and push all of the buttons with the batteries out of the remote. Then put the batteries back in and push the power button on the remote. If this doesnt work press the two TV buttons at the same time and the remote should be fine.
