Tried switching it on by power button, but it refused to power on. Then I thought of trying one last time before calling up customer service, but this time powered on. I disconnected it and put it back to same power strip and connected back all HDMI, av cables etc. It has been working fine since then.
Does any body know, what might have happened ?
Many electronic devices have "standby" power, like our DVDRs, and when there's a power failure, the standby circuit sometimes won't come back on when power is restored. (My dehumidifier acts this way also... it has a touch-pad electronic circuit system.)
Anyway, the standby circuit can almost always be reset by pulling power from the device completely... from the wall, not by a switch. Best to leave power disconnected for a short time... my dehumidifier takes just a few sec., then comes back to "life" after replugging.
When power fails, then comes back on with the device still plugged in, all lights, etc. look like the machine is OK, but the standby circuit can still be "tripped off" so just cuz a device has lights doesn't mean the standby circuit has reset. In my dehuidifier, even the fan works w/o unplugging/resetting, but the compressor doesn't work until the standby circuit gets reset... odd but true.
