Re: red power light keeps blinking and wont come on

The first thing to try is to unplug the unit from the wall for about 15 minutes,if this does not work you will need the assistance of a servicer to diagnose the problem,if you are familiar with tv service you can check the horizontal output transistor for a short,sometimes it fails for no reason and other times it goes bad along with the horizontal output transformer also know as flyback.Be careful if you decide to check this yourself.

Power light keeps blinking Red and TV will not turn on

Is the light blinking constantly or is there a long pause then more blinking. If constant check the lamp door switch . Usually it is broken or jammed. If you jumper it and the set comes on that it. 4 blinks is bad fan.

Tv wont come on and a red light is blinking. I have a Sony Wide screen projection TV model kp-46wt520

Can you unplug the TV for about 15 seconds, and then plug back in and watch the stand-by light. Tell me how many time the stand-by light blinks in regular intervals. If it doesn't blink at all, you need to change a fuse on the g-board. Once this is done run back through the stand-by blink light process, and more troubleshooting can be done if problem isn't already solved. If the stand-by light just keeps blinking with a count over ten just tell me, and I'll look for other possibilities.

power in the tv has nothing related with the DVD. The tv has to have raster (white screen) even without signal (cable, DVD, others) if the tv alone is just having the led flashing and neither sound nor video (black screen) The tv has a short circuit in some of the boards that are part of the tv system. the blinking is part of a protection when the tv was created in the factory. Refer to the technician to repair this problem.

Tv will not turn on

The blinking red light is telling you that the set did not start up due to an overvoltage somewhere in the set. Most likely the main power supply has a fault like a bad regulator IC or a component associated with it, or there is a fault in the sweep power supply somewhere. if you have no electronic repair experience, play it safe and call out a tech to assist you with this repair. Good Luck.
