i had tv unplugged overnight now when i turn it on i get nothing at all - red light is on front so i have power but does not want to turn on

Thank you for the reply. We often see these sets develop faults after a few years, and in most cases it requires replacement of a component (the Mainboard being the most common). However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up. The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 3 times, and please let me know what happens.

The Mainboard provides the turn on/off commands, so when the set cycles like it was doing before, and is locked with the standby light on- but no response from the remote, it means the Mainboard is at fault here. Those steps above are the only thing you can try on a user level to reboot the mainboard. If that does not work then the board would need to be replaced. In that case, let me know if you're looking to repair this yourself or are looking for a repair estimate and service locator.

That board is only available on the used market, and I was able to locate one at the link below for your set:

Okay that sounds good. I've outlined all of the fixes above for this- it is the Mainboard causing it, and if the reboot doesn't work the board needs to be replaced. If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. You can follow up at any time if needed.
