Welcome to the site! I'm Dan, and I'd be happy to help.

Neil, is there a little light on the front of the TV? What is it doing? Also, I need the TV's model number and its age.

Hi dan

No Red led light. Model TX P50VT20BA its about 24 month old.

Red light is off, and you're sure power is getting to the TV. We need a meter... do you have a meter and can you use it safely?

Hi Dan

Not sure if you got last answer. Power lead has been checked with a digital test meter all ok.

OK if the TV is completely dead, no signs of life at all... then we're looking at a blown fuse, defective P-board (power supply), or defective A-board (main board).

On the P-board, there should be 2 line fuses... I believe they're F601 and F602... 10A / 250V. That's from the schematic on the US model so yours might be slightly different. Anyway we need to check those fuses.

Check them and get back to me.
