The model number is ***** It was bough 3 yrs ago have only had problem last two weeks
OK - Have you tried to unplug TV power cord from wall socket for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in and check?If not yet, can you try it now and reply back with the result?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes I've tried that. I've also tried unplugging for 10 mins then plugging back in and then holding in menu and vol- button and before releasing press power but still does not work. Strangely if I leave it alone for 12 hours it switches on ok
OK, does it turn On if leave it alone while power cord plugged in?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes. If I just leave it plugged in and leave it for about 12 hours I can then trn it on OK
Thanks for the info, it seems problem is with power supply board in TV and probably capacitors are failing or few resistors have been devalued and causing the problem. I'm sorry for this news as it is hardware related issue and requires power supply board replacement in TV which will help to fix the problem. It doesn't look like any wrong setting or reset problem and TV should be serviced by local TV tech to resolve the problem. I trust my input will help you out.

Actually I have solved the problem. I have a virgin media TiVo box. When I eventually got my TV to turn on again I checked the settings on my TiVo box and turned energy saving off. Since then all has been ok
Excellent, glad to know that problem is resolved, it is strange that Tivo box is causing the TV to stay Off.Have nice time!Shahid.
