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

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.

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.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times

helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

Red power light continuously blinking. no picture no sound.

It could be the lamp went out and needs replacement. The Toshiba website states when this happens to unplug the televison for 10 minutes then plug back in. If that does not work then try another power outlet. If that does not work then call for service

HP MD6580N Rear Projection TV

I have exactly the same problem with mine.

HP refuses to help and no TV repair person will even bother coming out if I tell them my TV is an HP because their service for parts and tech support is brutal.

Can anyone help?
