Hello and thank you for the question.

How long have you had the set for and when did the problem occur?

Also, are there any signs of life at all on the TV (power light lit or blinking, click sound when power is pressed, etc.)?

there was when i try it but then it when off

Expert:  Aric replied 11 months ago.
Okay thank you.

This can be caused by one of two things.

Let's try a hard reset of the TV. Do this by disconnecting the set from power. Then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds. Then release, and plug the set back into a working outlet- or try another if you're unsure of this one. Also check the power cord connection at the back of the TV to make sure it is secure. Then press power once and let me know if you have the same issue.

Can you please be more specific? What exactly does it do, or not do?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.


a blue light comes on and then go off fast

Okay, unfortunately this isn't something that there's a quick fix for. These sets be Element are known for power supply issues in the TV, more specifically one or more capacitors on this board goes out of spec and will cause the problems you're having.

The average cost to fix this problem is $125 parts and labor. Seeing as the TV can almost be replaced for this amount, it is not worth the cost of repairs. I know this isn't the answer you'd hoped for and I'm sorry for the bad news.

If you, or someone you know can solder, there is a repair kit available for this set with the capacitors needed to fix it. The kit is available for purchase at the link below:
