My Sanyo FW55D25F shut off and won't turn on. It also is making this beeping noise. I tried unplugging it for 1hr+ then held down the power button for 60seconds, continued to hold down power while plugging it back in, and then while still holding the power button, I pressed the menu button & Vol- button for 60seconds. Then tried turning the TV on and it still would not turn on. It started beeping again the moment the tv was plugged back in.
JA: Is your FW55D25F connected to a surge protector or power strip?

The tv was purchased in 2015 or 2016, not quite sure, but it was "new" not too long ago.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, the described symptom and results of what has been tried almost always point to an internal hardware issue.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter (and even perhaps a soldering iron)?

No access to either....
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The television is only 1-2yrs old. Is this something that should be covered under warranty?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It is making a beeping noise. Doesn't that indicate that it is receiving power? If I were to open it up and look inside, what would I be looking for?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 3 months ago

The multi-meter would help confirm fault with voltage measurements.

In its absence, would you still consider / attempt a DIY by straight replacement of the most likely suspect board?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
How easy is that to do? I do not have a soldering iron. Also, shouldn't this be covered under manufacturer warranty?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 3 months ago

Kindly check the paperworks for this TV. The standard warranty runs for 12 months not unless an extended warranty was purchased also.

This would be more to your advantage.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I will have to look. But without the soldering iron, would I be able to make the repair to the power?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
How much do those cost? What if it is not the power board at fault? What would the next likely thing be? Also, what is the beeping noise and shouldn't it be indicating a specific problem?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 3 months ago

The soldering iron would be needed if the approach would be component level; i.e. a suspect part would be removed, tested out-of-circuit and replaced/soldered in if bad. A multi-meter would be needed for the testing.

on the otherhand, straight board replacement does not need component testing nor soldering. Almost always, plug in connectors only.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
If totally replacing it, how much should that cost? (Roughly)
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 3 months ago

Would information on the Part Number, potential online seller and a reference video tutorial serve your need?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
You can't just give me a range on prices that I might end up paying? I am trying to figure out if it is cheaper to buy a new TV...
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Being I am not familiar with those tools, what is the likelihood that I will screw up the tv more?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 3 months ago

Depends on the seller and the "quality" of the replacement board.

Most boards offered online are refurbished, pullouts from 'donor' TVs anywhere from 40 to 70 USD.

Unlikely "...screw up the..." The trick is to take pictures....lots of it before any of the boards, wires or even a screw is removed. Now you would then have a fall back / reference.
