What Happened? How can I get my TV to turn on after unplugging VGA cable?

By atoddkelly ·
I picked up a VGA cable so that I could watch movies from my laptop to TV. I completed this by plugging cord in to VGA slot in rear of TV and then in to computer. Everything worked great! After movie was complete, I unplugged the VGA cable from TV then Laptop, or vice versa..can't remember.
A message popped up on TV screen saying that "VGA cable unlugged, TV will power down" I didn't think anything of it, but when I attempted to turn the TV on, nothing happened. There is a red light that always shows at the bottom of the TV that lets you know it has power and it is on, but nothing happens when you hit the power button on the TV or remote. What happened?

Through the TV's own settings. Bring up the tv settings and change them back to Default. Be handy to know what kind of Tv you have.

I unplugged it for a 1/2 day, no luck. I also started with computer off, then plugged in VGA to both, powered on the computer hoping that the TV would recognize it, in hopes of then being able to hit the power button on TV and it would come on. Nothing happened.

it is either a fuse or something is toast. You can try replacing the fuse(s) yourself if that is your cup of tea, otherwise you are off to the repair shop. Doesn't matter what cables you plug in if the TV won't come out of standby.
