You mean that you get the company logo or the screen light up then it turns off ?

Is it only the screen that turns off/dark or the tv that shuts down ?

Nothing showes except the power light.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

O.k but that power light does it indicate that the tv is still on even though there is nothing on screen ?
