TV won't turn on using the remote Our two year old Emerson flat screen TV will no longer turn on using the remote control. To turn the set on, I have to unplug the TV, wait 20 seconds, plug it back in to make it come on using the remote. The TV also will not come on by pressing the power button on the top of the set. The only way to turn it on is by unplugging it which is a pain. Any ideas?? Thanks for your help!

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
