Please try unplugging tv POWER cord for 3 full minutes, plug in, then use the button on the tv itself... Is there any sign of life when you plug in the tv POWER cord? like power LED on the front panel or clicking?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
