Hello and sorry you're having problems. How long have you owned the set for and when did the problem occur?

Was it after a storm or power outage?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Possible brown out. Tv does not click when soft buttons are depressed
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the reply. How old is the TV please- over a year?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2006 I entered the model number do you have that?
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Yes model number was posted. There's a couple possible causes of this problem- most likely and common is the power board, and the other possible culprit is the Mainboard. The power light is generated by the 5 volt line on the power board, then the mainboard provides the turn on command. So, you're saying there's no response at all from the power button right?

Also are you looking to repair the TV yourself?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Or are you looking for a repair estimate and service locator?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

There's not a pushbutton fix for this problem, and I'm simply trying to determine how you'd like to proceed.

Tv is working fine....

Sorry to waste you're time.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

So what exactly is the problem you're having with the set?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Just the power light?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Please refund. Plugged source into Hemingway... Works fine
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

I don't handle refunds- I'm an independent tech- not a site employee or billing agent. You need to handle your own refunds through customer service. I am opting out.
