My phillips projection tv standby button flashes a code of 6 short and i long flashes. What does this mean and how much to fix it. Any help would be appreciated. Iam a senior citizen. Thank you.

its most likely a convergence failure but with out a model number its impossible to give accurate information . if you can solder and have the tools and ability you can repair it . if not i might suggest calling a local servicer if you can do the work your self under 50.00 id guess if you have to have some one come out 250 to 400 id suspect

Can u help? tv will not come on. clicking noise and red light flashing????

the flashing sequence is a guide to the problem

2 flashes space 2 flashes to 9 flashes space 9 flashes

once we know these we can pretty much determine the problem. None are good of course! They are all faults that need a repairman to intervene. There is no magic fix!

Please reply and I will give you the answer based on the sequence

Power button flashes blue continously and TV will not turn on.

The lamp is probably gone. Part # TS-CL110U. Easy to change yourself.

Sent you a fix on the tv...

Four flashes indicates fan error. Most likely candidate is the lamp or exhaust fan. With a flashlight look through the back of the set behind the fan when you first try on. You should see if the fan is moving or struggling to move. If its slow or not turning that's your problem. The fan needs to be replaced.
