Any ideas? Just won't power on. Not even sure where to start troubleshooting a tv. Tried different outlet and a new power cord.

Yer race car might have snuck it , in the cover of night, disabled the said "TV", so youd get of yer ass and spend more quality time with her, vs looking at a box? Eh, just a theory.....

When mind did that I had to replace a capacitor on the board. The capacitor was smaller than what should of been used, so it blew causing the TV not to turn on. After I replaced it there were no issues.

How did you figure out it was the capacitor?

Unplug it for 24hrs and let the capacitors on the power board discharge. That will make the tv reboot. If that doesn't work then the capacitors will probably have to be replaced.

Either that or you can buy a new board on ebay for about a 125 bucks..

power supply or power supply fuse
X2 or its got a bad capacitor or 2 in the power supply. This is a common problem with nearly every plasma and LCD tv on the market.... All because the
manufacturers let the penny pinching bean counters win, instead of thinking about customer satisfaction.

Same thing happened to me with my old LG LCD 42"

I went online searching for problems and found out about the capacitor. I went to a local electronics store and bought the better ones and replaced them all for like $8. Other than that the TV has been great for the last 5 1/2 years.

Fucking TV repair places will try to stick you for hundreds to "diagnose" and fix shit like that.

Compacitor more than likely. If you take the back off off it you will see the comp.'s the tops will be rounded not flat. I had to change two of mine cost me about $4. Check YouTube lots of info there
