    Thank you! Sorry I wasn't very descriptive with the problem. When I turn it on it blinks (blue light) instead of staying on and I also hear a clicking noise. After reading some comments on other questions I also listened closely to the power adapter and hear the same noise slightly higher pitch. I'm thinking it may be the power adapter?

If you are a front usb port on your desktop , switch to rear one. or try it on different pc, if aproblem continue that means that the usb controller on your external HDD is malfunctioning , you should have it fixed or replaced with exact same one

My tv blinks one time then one time fast what is the problem


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 section 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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Rear light blinks but new flush mounts dont


Did the fluch mounts come with a resistor?
With a multimeter, check the resistance (Ohms) between the original blinkers and the new ones. You may need to add a resistor to make them the same so that they blink.

It is related. One of the buttons on your wall control is the lock button and has a lock icon on it. Press and hold it for 3 seconds. The blinking should stop and your remote should now work.

Sony KDS-R60XBR1 bLINKS 6 TIMES


When I try to look up blink codes I'm getting conflicting info. On this model is the lamp on side of TV? If so 6 blinks is showing as lamp door error, the micro switch the lamp door makes contact with is either not closed all the way or possibly defective.You can try reseating door or check the switch and wiring connections coming off it. You could try temporarily by-passing the switch by making your own short across the plug it connects to.
If the lamp mounts in front 6 blinks is a defective thermal fuse.The fuse is mounted right next to the lamp.From the back you can disconnect the plug for the fuse and check for continuity if its open its bad.
