George-Allsorts :

Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.

Have tou checked near the rear power input to see if the switch is on?

Customer:

Yes, have checked power to plug and the fuse in plug.

George-Allsorts :

I mean on the tv itself where the power enters the tv there is usually a switch used to turn the tv power on an off when when you want to not leave it in standby

George-Allsorts :

On/off switch on your model is located on the left-hand side of the TV (from front view)

Customer: The button on the side is not working either. Set is getting power just not switching on. Am I looking at a power/transformer unit? If so how difficult are they to fix/change out?
George-Allsorts :

One moment please

George-Allsorts :

OK.. you say you are looking at the transformer?

George-Allsorts :

hello?

Customer:

Not specifically. It looks like there is power to the TV but it will not switch on. What should i do now?

George-Allsorts :

You will need to replace the power board.. It is a screws and plugs thing.. easy to replace

George-Allsorts :

One moment and I'll find you one

George-Allsorts :
