Red light on but not turning on

Red light on but not turning on

I have a sanyo flat screen tv. FW24E05T. It's in good condition atleast 3 years old never had any problems, but has been sitting for awhile without being used. The red standby light is on when its plugged in but the tv won't turn on. The reset seems to do nothing, unplugging and replugging does nothing, and the light just stays solid red (no blinking, green or blue light). Is there anything I can do or is it toast? Thanks for any help.

"Hi @lilyandtwitch ,

It could either be a mainboard or eeprom problem.

Unfortunately this supplier has no mainboards in stock but has provided good advice about what to look for when searching for other suppliers of a replacement mainboard (Take heed of the Note in red on the webpage under the eeprom part)."

There is a small power button behind the TV. Try switching on using that.
