The tv shows the red light when plugged in. When turning on set... the red light flickers from red to blue, red to blue, red to blue while holding power button. When you release it, it goes back to red. The unit will not power on. Any ideas?
Same problem here. There is a blurb on page 18 of the owners manual that talks about the fuse that protects the tv from a power surge. If the fuse is blown, the TV won't power up.
I haven't checked mine yet. The tv just started acting up. If and when I pull it off the wall, disconnect all the cables, pry off the cover from where the fuse is located, I'll re-post with my findings.
Just curious if a blown fuse resolved anybody else's problem??

It sounds like you need a new power supply, You and find one on amazon around $14 too $18 dollars maybe less, if that not your issue then it's going to be a fuse but since you can see the light it should be the power supply.
The power supply board was having problems before.That the board,where the power a/c cord plug into it Now might also the Tuner board are dead too.The tv Tuner board,that the board where the tv broscast signal cable plug into it.That the Tuner board.Tries Websites like shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish power supply board for the replacement to see if solved the problem,not probally will have to buy the refurbish Tuner board for the replacement too.
It is the capacitor. It is really easy to fix, and it will cost you about $4. The capacitor is on the power board and it looks like a small battery. The bad capacitor will have a small bulge on the top, the good ones will be flat on top. You can buy them at Radio Shack. Just look on the side of the capacitor to see which one you will need. If you need any further info I would by glad to help. I have a 40in polaroid that this happened to and it works like a dream now.
