Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first a few questions ;

What is the tv doing now if anything ?
Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?
Did it quit while watching it or simply would not come on today ?
Any electrical storm or power blackout in your area prior to this ?

Please disregard my posting , that was by mistake and cannot edit either .

Simply continue with the first expert
