We have a 47" flat...
We have a 47" flat screen vizio that went black during a storm that came through last night. If you unplug it the power button will turn it on but screen is still black. The power button will not turn it off. Any ideas on this?

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.
