This is Kyle K with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

Although we don't track going rates for various projects because this varies widely depending on market factors and location, members are encouraged to include how much a project cost in their reviews.

With that in mind, a good way to find out a general price range, login to your membership and search for TV Repair, and then look as the project cost associated with each review. The best way to get the most accurate information is to request multiple bids from several local contractors. As the price will vary with work site considerations and individual contractors' approaches, getting multiple estimates will help provide a clearer idea of what to expect in terms of pricing.

I hope this information help! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at We're happy to help!

Of course, first try unplugging the TV and plugging something you know works into the same outlet, to be sure it is not an outlet or breaker issue. Then plug TV back in and see if it works - this commonly works if the boards are confused like due to a static electricity hit. Also check your remote is not sandwiched into cushions or such and stuck on OFF - might also try using remote to see if that will turn it on.

Also, check your owners manual (or download on web) and see if there is a reset sequence - commonly holding a certain button or combination of buttons on the control panel down while turning it on.

Otherwise, not really possible to give an estimate of any kind on a TV that is not turning on. Could be something as simple as a loose connection inside, to a totally fired set of boards that can cost a thousand $ or more - sometimes more than the cost of a new TV.

Typical cost to diagnose the problem on the order of $75-125 - can be more if you need the repair guy to come to your house or come get the TV to take in.

When dealing with repairs, always keep in mind the cost (and hassle) of getting a new comparable TV versus putting money into an older one, because these days it is frequently cheaper to replace an appliance than make major repairs.
