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 Nicole,

If you press the power button on the TV itself, does the red light blink or have any changes? Try unplugging it from the electrical outlet, and while its unplugged hold down the power button on the TV for 45-60 seconds, then releasing and plugging back in. Once plugged in does the red light blink, or come on solid?"

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