is there a a way to restarst your tv without the remote

You have already restarted your tv by unplugging the power cord.

More details regarding the blue light and yellow light are needed to say what the issue is. Can you describe EXACTLY what those two lights are doing please.

Customer: replied 29 days ago.
know the blue light went off theres a solid yellow and a red light blinking blue light off

It's very hard to understand your reply because you are not using comma's or periods. I don't know which light is blinking or solid or what color.....

Customer: replied 29 days ago.
the yellow light is solid the blue light is off the red light is blinking

Ok, one minute please.

This indicates one of the FANS inside the tv is not running. I'm very sorry to say, the tv will not run until the fan is replaced. If you want to DIY, let me know and I may be able to help you with that here (substantial previous electronics experience is required on your part). Otherwise you will need to use local repair shop. In home repairs start at $250 on this model.

I know this is bad news and very upsetting but please understand I am here to provide an honest answer. I hope you will submit a 5 star rating at the top of this page and not base the rating on the fact that your tv needs parts or services outside of our control. If for some reason you don't feel I should get 5 stars, please do not rate and just let me know and I will follow up with you here.

the funny thing is the fan works on the vent where the lamp is is there 2
Customer: replied 29 days ago.
can i replace it my self

Yes, there is more than one fan. Also the fan could be running but not at the correct speed. If the fan is running too slow, the tv can detect that and will not allow the tv to run.

I don't know if you can replace it yourself... what previous experience do you have with repairing electronics?

Customer: replied 29 days ago.
i use the computer to use my knowlge its been very helpful what fan would it be and can i do it im not a dumb dumb
Customer: replied 29 days ago.
where would i get the part depending on what fan i have 2

I won't be able to tell you which fan is the bad fan... You would have to take the whole back off the tv and check all the fans.

Mike G. and other TV Specialists are ready to help you

i know the fan is working by the light where is the othe one

Take the entire back off the tv.

You don't have to keep opening new questions. All that does is charge you more here.

Your tv has two, or maybe three FANS.

You have to take the back off your tv.

You have to find which fan is bad.
