SOURCE: how to reset lg lcd tv

Whe you press the power button the TV led have to blink several times and the it have to change to blue, meaning Tv is on.
If you press the power button and the led start blinking and goes off, then you need to replace the mainboard because it is damaged.

Bye

SOURCE: LG 37LF65 LCD TV BLINKS 3 GREEN THEN 1 RED THEN TURNS OFF.

Here's a link to the service manual for a slightly larger LG LCD TV. Perhaps it may be of some help? The troubleshooting section appears to be the same for many models of LG TVs...

Red led blinks 4 times is an error code that shows that fan is not running in tv, check fans connections and make sure all are plugged properly.

Here's my suggestion , unhook all the external components to the TV and leave the TV unplugged for more than a few minutes (a day/overnight). The next day plug the TV into the wall outlet (not the powerstrip) without anything hooked up to it, and turn it on. See if it comes on. Sometimes unplugging for a few minutes/hours is not long enough for it to reset itself.

My Epson Stylus R230 has both red lights blinking alternately


Your printer has reach its maximum count of cleaning and printing. This need to be reset using epson adjustment program. But before resetting make sure that you have replace the waste pad inside your printer or it is much better to point outside the hose where the waste ink goes out.

Our big screen sony tv stopped working yesterday. The power on light is blinking red intermittently and when you push it, it doesn't turn on-no sound or picture. It will stop blinking red periodically, but...


Please try disconnecting all the cables from the TV including the power cables then reconnect them back after a few minutes. You may also try connecting the power cord from the TV directly to a functional wall outlet. If the issue persists then service will be required.

Epson r230 general error


Blink alternately or not? If alternately, the message is not "general error". but "service required" It's true to reset waste ink counter. But, i think it's not service required. when trun on printer ready? But when start to print red lights blink at same time? Problem with chip at ink tank. Check connector at chip and at head carriage. It's may be dirty, and not good connection. try to use another chip.

TV not working


Check the lamp door assembly, if the lights are alternating red then green, then this might mean that the metal pin that looks like a roofing nail is not making contact with the metal clip. Remove screws, reset panel in place and turn on, the red power button should be the only light on.
Good Luck!!!

Sony - Projector TV won't turn


Sony TV;s will give a service code, count the blinks, eg; 2-6, light will blink X amount of times, hesitate & blink again so many times. Count and report back but, I would recomend to unplug the TV's power cord, to reset the TV's system. Unplug for at least 3 minutes. I hope this was helpful.
