Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this and I'll do my best to help but need more info to troubleshoot the problem.
- Just to clarify, is the power light on TV flashing in yellow?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
When it shuts off it flashes yellow
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 7 months ago

OK, flashing yellow light is an error code.

Is the lower back cover of TV still off of TV?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 7 months ago

That's the reason for the yellow flashing light which is an error code that indicates lamp cover sensor switch is open.

Please find a switch near the lamp housing area, it would have a blue lever, press that switch manually and turn On TV power.

Does TV power turn On now?
