TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
The TV has safety switches on the lamp door, that has to be actuated before any voltage is applied to the Power Supply and rest of the TV.
So, please double check that.
That is the only "user serviceable" component that would cause this problem.
Sometimes the TV will experience an abnormal/unsafe situation and shut down the TV until the problem has been remedied.
I would suggest reassembling the TV and trying again.
Without having professional training, I would recommend against anything further due to the dangers involved.
I recommend at least having a shop look at the TV, it may only cost $200 to fix, it is better than looking for a new TV.
Please let me know if you need any more information, or a referral to a local TV repair shop
I wish you the best!
