Coby TFDVD1973 19" LCD TV/DVD Combo
Try these-
TV Reset-
Unplug TV from wall plug for 10 minutes, then press and hold power button on TV for 60 seconds--Plug in turn on--
Reset-
Press and hold both 'vol' and 'menu' on TV side panel.
Continue hold while pressing and releasing 'power' on the panel. Release the hold after a count to 5.
If you have no menu button use- ( input and volume up )

There is one step you can take here, both as a possible fix, as well as a diagnostic evaluation
1) Unplug the power cord from the TV.

2) Wait at least 1 hour (60+ Minutes)

3) Press and hold the power button (on the set, not the remote) for 60 seconds
4) Keep holding power button while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after. When plugging back in, go directly to the wall outlet, bypassing any power strips or surge protectors.
or this---
1. Hold [menu] and [vol-] button on the side of the TV
2. while holding these, press the [power] button on the side of TV (NOT remote)
3. blue light comes ON and stays ON
4. wait 10 seconds then let go of [menu] and [vol-]
5. wait another 30 seconds and some type of picture should appear
Let me know if these resets work.

So are you stuck in red standby?
Possible Power Supply Board.
Were you going to fix yourself?
If so let me know-
