What is the make and model number of your TV?

Does the standby light come on at all?

Can you hear any noises or clicking or beeping from the TV?

Vizio E420i-AO No standby light and no noices, clicking or beeping from TV.

Ok, then the TV's internal power supply board is suspect and it will require a repair.

This type of repair typically costs around $200-250.
