good to see excel did the right thing but a bit worrying after reading their description of "refurbished" obviously they dont actually check things as they say. not good if living interstate.. did they pay for shipping and insurance each time?
Begs the question: Have the obvious things been checked? Power cord OK, power cord plugged in correctly at the back of the TV,main power switch on the bottom of the TV turned on?
I've come across these scenarios over the years.
I'm inclined to think if there is no activity, a fuse could be blown, which then requires analysis as to the failure mode causing this event. It seems to me faulty capacitors have entered the general online lexicon as to the reason for equipment failing, something I also posit on occasions. (I do, however, fix a lot of stuff where this is the case.)
Be interesting to know what it was if the OP comes back with a result.
BTW I have no trouble finding high voltage capacitors, there are a number of suppliers on the east coast of Australia.
just a heads up.. excel have the 3050 refurb for $1600... this mob have the 3050 new for $2200 (gumtree ad or their website $2400)

personally i would love to buy a refurb now.. but as i run no 4k tv/pj, 2.2, etc etc i could never actually test that all is working. hate 2 buy now and 2 years from now get some 4k gear only to find out something doesnt work.. yes warranty etc etc but a hassle
