James--
Yes, as I indicated in my question, the blue light comes on and yes I do hear the same distinct click that it has always made when powering up
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Relist: I still need help.
I need to know whether I should hire a technician to come to my house. To reiterate, the philips LCD flat panel clicks and gives me a blue light but nothing happens

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
