    Only worked ONCE, so if you get it turned on, don't turn it off!

My TV also does this, I just keep trying, maybe 10 or 20 times eventually the speaker will crack, but it usually takes 2 or 3 more trys before it comms on. Need replacement parts and instructions. Are any available?

My 32" coby does the same. I'll hit power and the blue light brightens like the TV is going to turn on but then it just dins again. Could take up to an hour or more and too many tries to turn the dang thang on. I've had it for 2 yrs now and just don't watch enough tv to want to spend money on a new one. Here is what I have found to work. 1. Never turn your tv off. I put it on mute when I go to bed. 2. If TV does turn off due to power or whatever, I found that using a power surge cord and ONLY plugging in the TV cord works. It turns on for me within 5-6 tries. When more than one item is plugged in it will take forever to turn on. Hope this helps.

I had a 32" Coby that did the same thing, turned out to be a defective main board. The main board wasn't sending the 3.3v signal to wake up the power supply. In my case I sold the tv for parts because it wasn't cost effective to replace the main board. It sound like your main board

Bad/Going Bad/Will go horribly bad TCON board (small circuit board sitting at the top of the panel in the back).

Most likely, the whole panel will need to be replaced in order to rectify the issue.

SOURCE: hdtv lcd 40 in. broken screen face

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Hi brendafoud, have you had this fixed as mine is the same and has been for months. It happened just after the warranty had ran out(typical). Bought from ebay and the people I got it from are not very helpfull. Have you got yours fixed yet?
