Hello, I'm Shahid and will be happy to assist you. I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.

- How old is the TV and how long it have had the problem?

- Was there any repair/ part replacement done to TV in past?

- Do you have multimeter and can check volts on circuit board inside TV to troubleshoot the issue?

Thanks.

I'm not sure how old the tv is,and no repairs had been done on the tv,or do I have a multimeter.The problem just started tonight.Also if I unplug then plug it in again the same results occur.Red light goes out, tv doesn't turn on,so after replugging the tv it must be getting power for the red led light to go on.

Thanks for the info, it seems power supply board failure that consist of two sections, one is standby supply that provides low volts to main controller chip and you get power indicator light when plug TV power cord, next section is main power which provides bit higher volts to other sections in TV such as backlight inverter, sound and video processor chips etc to generate light, sound and picture and it seems this section isn't working thus you wont get on TV when press power button. Replacement of power supply board will help to resolve the problem.

Please check following link to view power supply board image and part number info that will help to search/ google it to get price and stock info if you wish to replace it yourself in TV..

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this 6 years old TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
