SO I BOUGHT AN iLO 32HD A FEW MONTHS AGO. AND NOW THE TV WONT TURN ON. USUALLY YOU WOULD PRESS THE BUTTON ON THE TOP OF THE UNIT, A RED LIGHT WOULD SHOW UP, THEN YOU TURN IT ON USING THE REMOTE.I THOUGHT IT MAY BE THE REMOTE BUT I CALLED iLO AND GOT A NEW ONE... STILL THE SAME PROBLEM. ANY ONE ELSE EXPERIENCE THIS? OR KNOW A SOLUTION??
I had mine for a year and then, just like you guys said, red light, but cant get the power to come on. After talking with walmart and ilo, getting no help, i took it to the tv repair guy. He said it was the internal power transformer that went bad. I'm picking it up tomorrow. Cost me 250 bucks to get it fixed. Im really thrilled. After now reading all the complaints about this tv, it breaks again and its gonna become a really expensive boat anchor.
I have the same problem. Have to push the on/off button quite a few times then one of the other buttons to get it to come on. Seems like it has to warm up some as well. Why dont we all get together and force WalMart to give us back our money or exchange them for a different brand, same size, that they are selling. I have not heard one good report about the ilo tv, in any size. If I had known this I would of never bought it.

The red light is on the POWER side of the set and has no relation to it working or being guaranteed to work. When you press the on button power is transferred to the relay which then connects the power to the rest of the set. In betwenn that and the components is a special component that detect power overload or opens circuits. If this is detected in milliseconds the unit fails to tuen the set on until all circuits read correctly.
I suspect like many who have new TV;s that it is now 18 months going on 2 years and out of its guarantee.
The power board and the sustain board either 1 or 2 has failed ( which is common on items being manufactrured in Korea) which is becomming the norm. It is also not DIY and repairs need knowledge special retuning tools and the list goes on. Estimated cost is about $300 for parts anhd an equal cost for labour. Dont throw your old analogue away, keep it and apply a set top box it will; still be operating when all these new poor quality tv's are long dead. Vive Made in America! Yours is not the only brand involved in this fiasco either LG sony samsung and a few others also use the same korean manufacturer for their boards.
I have the same issue. Here's a temporary solution, which is what I've been doing for the last couple of weeks, unplug the unit from the wall, just long enough for the red standby light to go out, then plug the unit back up. as soon that the red standby light comes on, press the on button the the remote or the unit. You may have to do this couple of time before it works. Somedays it works on the first try for me and then somedays I have to do it 3 to 4 time. I sure that at some point this will stop working too.
Normally this is a good indication of a stuck button on the set. With the set off, try working each of the control buttons. You should be able to feel teh button engage. If one feels like it does not work, that is the likely culprit and it should be replaced.
