So, we got an HDTV during the holidays and like the topic says, it's not working. The power cable is plugged in well and the symptoms are:

1) Red blinking light indicating standby mode

2) TV will not power on

The manual states that the red blinking light in normal procedure. Once plugged in, the light begins it's process and lets the user know that there is power going into the television but it's not on yet. After trying multiple ways to turn it on from the Element remote to manually pressing the power button on the tv to programming our xfinity remote with multiple codes, it is stalling. Please help troubleshoot this good looking HDTV (when it works).

Take it back to the store if you bought it during holidays

Try unplugging it for a few minutes then plug it back in.

I did that but it's still the same.

I've seen some strange quirks such as remotes not working when there is very high humidity. But, if the power button on the TV itself doesn't work, you might want to return the TV.
