    Same here. I don't even get any picture at all. After 10 seconds, the light starts blinking.

    Help us, Obi-Wan. You're our only hope.

SOURCE: TV turn off itself and won't turn on

Sounds almost like you have a voltage missing on the power supply board. if its a missing voltage a service manual and a multi meter should help ya find whats missing But a shop repair on a set like this could cost a bit as anything over 27" is a little costoly to fix these days. Only way to see is call and say to your self How old is the set? is it the set you really like do you wanna spend 150 to 225 to repair? it up to you. Good Luck

SOURCE: JVC tv i'art blinking timer

It is protecting you and itself with high probability.
Power supplies in modern electronic devices are designed to cycle if there is a fault in circuitry they are servicing and because of the design, also will not turn on completely if they are failing.

The older style of power supply was 'dumb' and unable to do this so could cause fires if the failure wasn't teh 'right' kind to blow the main fuse.

I agree with the manual; this is a job for a tech.

SOURCE: TV turns on for about

I assume the light is blinking red, generally this may stand for a trouble code depending on the number of flashes.
I am thinking that since these tvs have had problems in the video circuitry, I think vertical amplifier for the picture or a similar part went bad and is just causing the tv to shut down. Unfortunately due to the age and type of the tv, it is definitely not worth fixing. A part replacement would cost about half of a new LCD tv of this size alone if it is what I am thinking. Sorry for the bad news, but this tv is done unless you want to stick more money into a tv that isn't worth fixing rather than buying a new one.
Let me know how this works out for you. Benjamin

Mono setting?


What channel is it and when they tune in that channel, is the picture nice and clear or is it grainy and snowy before the screen goes blue? On some sets, if the signal is weak, the picture will go blue. This is called Blue Screen and is there so you do not see very poor, grainy and snowy pictures. Some sets will have an option in the menu to turn the blue screen off.
