Welcome! I am an experienced electronics field technician and your satisfaction is my top priority. We are now connected together on this convenient website. When the tv won't turn on and the OPC light is flashing, it means the tv has detected an internal circuit failure that will require diagnosis, parts, and service. You can try unplugging the tv power cord for 3 minutes but that likely won't help. The tv needs repair. Depending on the size of the screen, it may not be worth repairing because repair shop fees can be $250-$350 when all is said and done. The only exception would be if you actually have electronics experience and want to attempt a DIY repair, then repairing the tv might be worth it. Reply back here if you want more info on that. I'm sorry for the bad news. Before we go furher please take a moment to submit a 3 to 5 STARS rating at the top of the page. Then I will be happy to help your further, at no additional cost.Thank you,Mike
