Hello Jack
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Hello , a few questions coming up

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
OK
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

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 ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I think my son may have turned it off wrong last night. i found it this way today
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No power outage
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

O.k then I doubt very much this has anything to do with the sleep timer or how it was turned off , it may have simply failed .

You said something about a beeping sound ?

Is it continuous or stops at some point or only when you press the power button etc. ?

Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Are talking about a squealing from inside ?

How about the power light at the front , is it on , does it blink ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Continuos none stop
No just beeping
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No light in front
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

These models have problems with their power board and it certainly look like that now , that beeping is more than likely coming from it

Give me a couple of minutes for the details please

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
ok
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Can you give me the TV's serial number prefix like DS1 ,DS5 ,TH1 etc.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
DS1A1420100449
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

O.k then that is DS1 , be right back

Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Thanks for waiting

I don`t know if you had in mind to look into repairing this yourself but if so then you can get that power board at the link below for $65 , click this link ;

http://www.shopjimmy.com/emerson-a3aunmpw-001-power-supply-unit.htm

This is Plug&Play ,no solder or adjustments and if you or a friend is handy with a screwdriver and can remove the back cover then you can do this yourself, no special tools required.

If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .

If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the link below and enter your zip code ;
www.tvrepairpros.com
This will give you a list of NESDA member repair shops in your area.
This list may be limited though and you may find more by simply using the yellow pages or simply google "tv repairs" and the name of your town .
You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around .
