Hi. I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem with their tv. I have an element 3210 LCD tv. Last night i wanted to watch something on my computer on the tv, so i plug my new macbook (white model) into the tv via its VGA port. We watched our movie, Die Hard 4, then i unplugged the computer and powered everything down. Next morning i wake up and the tv won't turn on. Its plugged into the wall, and the red power led is lit, but when i push the power button on the tv it wont turn to blue and power on. I tried a different outlet in the house and still no luck.

A bit of searching on the net and i saw other folks have had similar problems. They say if you plug in a computer and dont disable the 'turn off monitor' feature in the Screen Saver power save section", the tv will turn off forever. But i think that applies to a PC, as i did not see a setting like that on the mac. Here are the two threads i found.

Its pretty frustarating, we bought this tv exactly a year ago on Black Friday, and now it dies. Hopefully i can get it working again. Going to try to contact Element Electronics on monday.

If anyone has any thoughts please let me know.

I don't know if this will help but have you tried reconnecting the mac and then turning the set on? Have you tried unplugging the TV for 5min to 30min and then trying again?
