The light comes on for a few seconds. Then fades out. The set is about 5 years old

The tv turned on earlier in the day and now it won't

We tried unplugging the set
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Now the light doesn't come on at all

I was just going to suggest unplugging it....

So at this point the tv needs diagnosis, parts, and service. I can help you with that but with these symptoms, DIY diagnosis is going to be very complex. If you do not have the needed skills and tools then having it repaired by a local shop will end up costing almost as much as a new 50" tv. Just an in home diagnosis is usually at least $100 up front.

I'm sorry for the bad news. I do understand that finding out your tv needs expensive repairs is not pleasant but at least now you can make the most of your situation without high repair costs and long wait times. You saved a lot of time and money by coming here first.

Remember, I will be here with you throughout this entire process. Unless there is something else you can think of, please take a moment to submit at least a 3 star rating at the top of this page before you go. Rating now does not close your question or prevent future replies which are at no additional cost.

Thanks
Mike
