42" plasma T.V. model 42PA30RQ (flatscreen) will not turn

Customer Question

42" plasma T.V. model 42PA30RQ (flatscreen) will not turn "on" anymore. Plugged in, was on, turned off, that's all she wrote. Any fuses to be concerned with?

Hello

In every case where their is no power light lit and you are sure their is power reaching the set the back of the set will need to come off (set unplugged from the wall)and some checks carried out using a meter (volt\amps\resistance)this is just to verify if the powerboard is bad, are you able to do that yourself?if so please let me know I will provide more details, the most likely suspect as it stands now is the powerboard itself.

Please let me know if you can do work or need more info

Plugged back in, sorry, there is a red light, and when you hit the "on" button it switches to blue. But no power to T.V.for picture nor sound.
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 9 months ago.

OK that sounds like the set is going to the ON mode.

Now if you press the menu button of the sets own remote control does the menu come up please?
