Thats a very old plasma (2006) tv

Did this problem happen all of sudden or gradually got worse over the last few days/weeks ?
Like it would take longer than usual or repeated attempts before it would turn on ?

It happened all of a sudden.

What is the tv doing now if anything ?
Is there a light or blinking light at the front and/or clicking sound from inside when you plug the power cord again and try to turn it on ?
Or completely dead no activity whatsoever ?

By the way
If you received a $26 phone offer or any offers they are automated by the website ,NOT BY ME , I`m an independent tech. and have no control over those, they are optional and you can just ignore them if you don`t want it , or use it if you`d rather do it on the phone .

The tv is now on and working. I have already payed 26 dollars on my credit card. Was this the wrong thing to do?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have a flip phone so I can not read any response on the phone unless it is a total text.

It is a plasma tv. Never had an issue. Could it be on its way out?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It is about 12 years old.
Expert:  Jack replied 8 months ago.

Its not getting any younger and you have to prepare for its demise

I would start to shop if you don`t want to be caught without a tv one evening !
