Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello, I see you were chatting with the site's automated response system. I am Mike, the real life technician assigned to help you. Sorry to hear you are having problems.... Are you available to chat with me right now?
Are you able to get the model number off the back of the tv?
Please try this:-unplug the tv POWER cord from the wall outlet.-wait 3 full minutes then plug in the tv power cord and try to turn on preferably with the button on the tv not remotes.
REPLY back here and tell me what happens.
Since unplugging didn't help- I'm very sorry to say, this is going to be an internal failure that requires diagnosis and parts inside the tv be replaced. If you want to DIY, let me know and I may be able to help you with that here (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 so it is worth repairing.
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.
I'm afraid it's not that simple. Tests inside the tv have to be performed. Then based on the results of the tests we can recommend a part. Before we continue- Do you have previous electronics repair experience? If so, please describe in detail....
That's nice. Can you be more specific, like:
-Do you own a DMM?
-Have you tested live voltages on circuit boards?
-Have you soldered components onto boards?
