This morning, my tv simply shut off. The light on the front doesn't even turn on.
I unplugged the TV & waited, plugged it back in, still dead.
I removed back panel, but area where there might be a fuse was not easily accessable.
I have owned the TV for over 2 years, do not have extended warranty.
What can I do?

Re: No Power to TV
I would call or contact one of the shops on FixYa and get them to fix it. For this you may need to provide a schematic, what I would suggest doing is contacting the company and asking for the service documentation for the TV and then providing that to whomever you are having fix the device or if you feel comfortable do the work yourself you can use a FixYa Expert to start you on the process of troubleshooting the problem.
It sounds like you do have a power supply problem.

i unplugged the tv , turned the lamp switch to off . I left it unplugged for a few hours . I then plugged the tv back in , hit the reset button , located on the front bottom left . I waited for the timer light to stop blinking , then turned the lamp switch to the on position . I turned the power on to the tv . i heard the fan kick on , this time there was not a dragging sound . the screen lit up and i have not had a problem since yesterday . i think that the problem started because the tv had been left on for too long , I know that what i have done is only a temperary fix . but as long as I dont forget to turn the tv off , i should not have a problem
Try a power drain:
1. Unplug the TV's power cable so that the TV is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off a powerbar if one is in use.
2. Press and HOLD the TV's own power button for one minute to drain the capacitors.
3. Plug the TV back into a wall outlet versus a powerbar, if one is in use and see if this makes a difference.
If the TV still won't turn on but you have a LED light flashing, the problem is usually with the TV's mainboard and not the power supply or the LED wouldn't even be on. Service is likely required.
Sounds like you have a jammed / shorted out button on the control panel... Try un-plugging the tv, and then unplug the "button panel" on the front of the tv...see if you can turn the tv on with the remote. Sometimes if one of the buttons gets shorted, it will "lock" the processor from doing ANYTHING else, as it thinks you are holding down the defective button. If this works, simply have the defective switch or control panel replaced, or just leave it unplugged and use the remote only! Hope this helps!
