I have a 12 year old Panasonic big screen tv....when I turn

I have a 12 year old Panasonic big screen tv....when I turn it on, the indicator light goes from red to flashing green and I can hear some start-up sounds. But in only a few seconds, the indicator light goes back to red and the sound stops.JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your Panasonic? And can you guesstimate how old it is?Customer: It is a Panasonic PT-43LC14...purchased in 2005, I believeJA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: I believe it was in DISH mode when we last had it on...which was only hours before this on/off symptom started. The 3 or 4 seconds of flashing green indicator before it turns red/off again doesn't allow any kind of screen picture at all.JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: Only been an issue since 2 days ago....I have tried to turn it on several times in those 2 days. We had been up on DISH looking at recorded show listing....turned it off, and tried to turn it on about 5 hours later, with this symptom appearing.JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?Customer: I guess not.

Louie, and I have a 37" 6-7 yr old flat screen Samsung TV

Louie, My name is ***** ***** I have a 37" 6-7 yr old flat screen Samsung TV which was plugged in to a surge protector along with my AT&T cable box and other equipment. The TV was also plugged into the AT&T cable from the wall. During a thunderstorm a couple of weeks ago, the TV went blank and I have not had a picture since, though the red light is visible on the front of the TV. I checked all of the normal cable checklist things and even disconnected the TV and still got no picture or sound. Is it dead? Fixable at a reasonable price? Or would I be better off buying a new TV?

Hello. I have a Sharp Aquos (31 inch?) big screen TV. It worked fine yesterday, but suddenly today I can't turn it on. I've tried the remote, the button on the box and the buttons on top of the screen and nothing works. I know I am getting power because the red light is on. i just can't get the green light to work.This is absolutely the very last thing I needed to happen today! Can you please help me?Thanks. David
