These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

It sounds that there is any loose solder terminals at the main board, especially with the vertical scan output section circuit. It will be best to contact any service technician to get it repaired. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

usually after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to tube ) becomes weak - then TV won't get ON.. means no picture no sound but LED blinks - in some TVs along with EHT 1 or 2 components like resistor, transistors, etc will also gets deffective - so solution is TV circuit board has to be checked to find whether only EHT is deffective or other components are also deffective - price of EHT will be between Rs.250 (US$ 5) to Rs.600 (US$ 12) - iam service engineer (computers, laptops, printers,etc) - bangalore - domlur - 09986222774 - sathyavijayasarathibabu@ymail.com - if you are in bangalore then you can call me for service - i think you are living somewhere in america /australia..... - problem is simple but i don't have any idea about EHT COMPONENT 's price & service charge in your place.......

This unit has a horizontal/high voltage issue. This is a dangerous circuit to work with so you should have a shop check it for you. Thanks for using fixya.

Most likely you have a horizontal/high voltage problem. There are no user servicable parts in this set and high voltage is dangerous to work with. Have a repair shop check it for you. Thanks. These are good sets so it is worth a check out.

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

1-confirm sound level in tv is high.
2-confirm sound level in sound source if it is excit is in high level.
3- confirm that you did not plug any jack in headphone socket if it is exict4-remove power cord from outlet and remove the rear cover.
(often 4-6screws).4-go away far from right side of main board(because it is danger area!!!!!!!!. .
5-check for loose connector in the speaker and reconnect.
do not go any more for your safety.

Dead, led flashing red/green at first, then going to red standby
Replace C604 (1000uF, 16v) elec. cap. It is in the decoupling circuit for the 5 volt supply
Red led blinks on / off, TV does not turn via power button and/or remote but after 20 minutes or so it turns on and works fine
Replace R902, R901, R905, R903, R900A, Q902, and possibly the two (one small and one large) capacitors in the section labeled as the power supply. The board will be black under the components that are bad. Q902 is an NPN transistor and is hard to find.

Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.

check for bad solders on the crt socket . If it turns off again try running the tv with the crt socket off the tube but 1st try to time how it takes for the tv to turn off then disconnect the crt socket. If it does not turn off the tube may be bad, if it does not turn off check the voltages at the crt socket and see if all the voltages at the colour outputs are close to the same, if so then you have a bad tube when you connect the tube and the voltages change conciderably the tube is gone

Are you talking about video as in a DVD player or a streaming device? Depending on your remote, there should be a button labeled "TV/Video", "Source", or "Input". You press that button multiple times to go through the options. Now, your TV may not actually have an input labled "Video". You will probably have choices of different kinds of inputs labeled "TV" or "Antenna", "Cable", or types of ports, such as HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3. As you press the "Source" button to go through the sources just pause a few seconds (or you may have to press OK or Select) to watch each HDMI port to see which one your DVD is connected to. I hope this helps. Sorry, but there are many possible variations from TV to TV and different remotes.
