Hello, my name is***** am an experienced electronics field technician connected to you via this pay for assistance chat based support service. Your satisfaction is my top priority and in return your positive rating is the only way I will receive credit for my time.
One thing you can try before calling a repair shop:
-disconnect all audio/video/cable/antenna wires from the tv.
-unplug the tv POWER cord from the wall.
-press and hold the power button on the tv for 20 seconds, release button.
-plug in the tv POWER cord and try to turn on the tv.

Many repair shops will charge $49-$99 just to diagnose the issue, and the total bill could in fact be almost as much as a new 32" tv. So ask about diagnostic fees and labor rates.
I am here to help you. If you need more help reply back. Please be sure to click the 5 STARS or SMILEYS rating now. Doing so does NOT close the question or prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly does depend on your positive rating. Clicking the "bad/poor" rating does NOT do anything to fix your issue, nor does it issue you a refund.
