My tv is a acer LCD AL2671 26inch. I have problems turning on the tv and requires that I turn on and off the main switch under the panel several times before it will come up with a piture. I never have a problem turning it off Recently the picture has started shifting to the right of the screen. any thoughts before I call a tv repairman at least I will have some idea and what I'm talking about.

Well sounds like a Horizontal PSU problem... a component is or has gone faulty.. causing incorrect voltages to be generated.. thus the problem.. shouldn't be too hard to fix..It may be also an IC.. any TV repairman worth his salt should have no probs fixing it fairly easily.

I bought my 46" samsung

The Capacitors on the Main Power PCB are failing which is why it's taking 3 attempts for them to charge before the TV will switch on.

These could be replaced for a few $ if you know someone with the technical ability and equipment.

Failing this it would require a new PCB at around $120 + fitting.

When i switch tv on, it shows picture for 5 seconds then goes into standby. the tv is a vistron ltm-3271e lcd

The problem is associated with the power supply that cannot run under load. The showing of picture for a brief period of time indicates that the main board, ballast, inverter and panel drive are all OK. The unit turns on but the power supply cannot sustain the power requirement of the unit and shuts down.
The usual culprit on the power supply are blown or bad capacitors. Check the power supply for such capacitors. If no apparent damage or defect is found, replace the power supply.

Wont come on havet turn of and on several times to get it on

Seems to be a power supply problem, i have the same thing, and a frien with a 32" acer has the same turn on problem, his is a different model though, i think its due to cheap caps in the power supply.

Turns on them off

It sounds like a defective power supply module that is causing the failure on your TV. In about 95% of the time the power supply fails but there could other failure(s) in the other LCD circuitry.
