No online chat is good
Purchased about 2 years ago I will get the model number if you can hold o The only number i see on the back of set is model # CH4KM05525

That's a serial number, not useful here. It's ok... Please try this:

-unplug the tv POWER cord from the wall outlet.
-wait 3 full minutes then plug in the tv power cord and try to turn on. Try the button on the tv, not just remotes.

REPLY back here and tell me what happens.
