No light on screen at all. There is no n off switch on tv
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 10 months ago

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the TV (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the TV, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

Richard, if there was a power surge and it damaged it, can it be repaired
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 10 months ago

Yes, but first we need to eliminate anything else, can you please reply to my last question?

Ok, have it plugged into a different wall outlet

Are the standby lights showing?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
What do I do now...no standby lights
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 10 months ago

Thanks

It is the powerboard that has faulted, it is most commonly caused by a power surge

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
