TV on/off light keeps blinking red light/no sound or picture on screen

My TV which had been working fine suddenly refuses to turn on. When I turned on the TV with my remote, the on/off light on the TV keeps blinking red. This blinking continues and does not stop unless I unplug the power. No picture or sound. Any ideas? Kim

    I have the same problem...there's just a blinking red light on the ON button, no sound or picture. How do you fix a STR REGULATOR PROBLEM?

    I have a very similiar problem just happened to my Toshiba 65H80 TV. While watching TV, suddenly the picture from the TV goes black and the red LED power indicator blinks repeatly. The only way to turn off is to unplug the power. After plugging back the power and press the Power button, the TV screen briefly appear white for a few seconds then just turn off by itself. The red power LED is blinking again. I hope someone has a solution. Thanks in advance!

    I had this problem a year ago and had it repaired under extended warren ty. "Replaced defective deflection board U*01". Part #23786217x. Cost would have been at least $300.

Sounds like a main STR regulator problem

Here's a solution that I received from an TV expert in another website: "This sounds like a power supply problem. i have seen it several time on your model. i would not keep trying to turn it on it might damage something else in the tv. the reason it is shutting off is because the power supply is putting out too much voltage. a repair cost will range around 300-400. this is a great model and well worth a repair. here is a web site that might help you in finding a repairman." <-- $300-$400 is too much! But throwing away a 300lbs TV will cost a lot of $$$ for the towing and dumping too. I haven't decide what to do yet.

Hello, I have a 53-inch Panasonic PT-53WX42F TV, and it refuses to turn on. No picture, no sound. All it does is the tiny red power light blinks 3 times repeatedly. Can I fix this myself? What parts do I...

Thats a convergence failure when the led blinks 3 times. Your model uses the PT47WX42 convergence repair kit available from the kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions for the repair.
