    Same problem here except I have a 52 inch. My television is still under warranty so I will report back what they did to fix it.



    Also, the tech said I should get an extended warranty, which leads me to believe that this set has problems.

  • dndgeez Dec 10, 2008

    The current diagnose from the TV repair guy is a new power supply is required. Solution???? Not sure.....

    Since there are none in stock, they are quoting a 30 day projected ship date for the part.

    I'm still suspicious about the diagnose since it takes a switching circuit to fire up the Power Supply, and the switching circuit is where the most susceptible parts are, such as a Power Transistor. But then again they could be a complete unit.

    Any insight on this would really help for future issues.

    Thanks-

    I also have this problem. Occasionally happens in the mornings.



    You can unplug the TV for a few seconds, plug the TV back in and wait till the yellow/orange LED stops blinking, and then turn on the TV. Should power on almost instantly, mine does anyways. Thanks

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

My tv wont turn on by power button or remote. white light keep blinking.


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/. If the blinks continues, and non-stop, the fault should be with its main system control IC, and with the memory IC.

The blinking red light means set is in shutdown because of a short inside the tv.

Someone to begin would have to open it and check power supply voltages inside the set....that is the first step.

My phillips 60 inch tv 60pl9200d/37 wont turn on the power button flashes blue


Look in the manual. (Page 4)

Turn the TV on From main supply: Ensure that the main supply is turned on. A blue indicator light on the front of the TV lights up. When the TV is turned on by the main supply, the blue indicator light will blink for 45 seconds. This is the lamp's start-up period. When the light goes off, press the POWER button on the remote control or power switch. Press POWER to turn on the TV.

Need codes for rcr 460 remote


1. Manually turn on the component
you want the remote to control
(TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver
or cable box).
Note: If you press an invalid key
during the Manual Code Search,
the remote does not respond and
the LED indicator light does not
blink. If you do not press a valid
Manual Code Search key (TV,
VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL, ON·OFF,
GO BACK), the search times out
after two minutes. When the
search times out, the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off. The last
programmed code under that
component key is retained.
2. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you
wish to program. The LED indicator
light turns on and remains on.
3. While holding the component
key down, press and hold the
ON·OFF key. The LED indicator
light turns off.
4. After holding down both keys
for three seconds, the LED
indicator light turns back on.
5. Release both keys. The LED
indicator light remains on.
Throughout the
programming of each key, be sure
to keep the remote pointed at the
IR sensor of the component you
are currently programming the
remote to control.
6. Press and release the ON·OFF key
repeatedly until your component
turns off. Each time you press the
ON·OFF key, the LED indicator
light blinks, and the next code in
the list is sent. This process
continues until all of the codes in
the Code Lists have been searched.
If your component turns off, you
have found the correct code. (If it
cycles through and the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off, all codes have been
searched. The Manual Code Search
method is exited.)

Tv wont turn on


The green light flashing indicates an error code, plasma tv's cannot be repaired at home without the right equipment and service manual, the fault could be power supply, processor or virtually anything, what technicians look for is the frequency of the blinking and the time between sets of blinks, this normally gives the tech a code that enables them to go to the right area, the only thing anyone can tell you is that the processor is probably ok, you really need to get a quote or count the blinking and the timing eg: "blink blink short pause blink), and repost the fault, then we can possibly tell you where to look...Phil

Tv wont turn on only clicks and then flashes red timer light


Well, I have found out that the number of red light blinks is a "blink code" that indicates the nature of the fault with the TV. Usually these are various failures of internal fuses or circuit boards. There's a fair amount of information on threads at techlore.com on this, so try searching there. Teh specific codes and manuals are usually it seems under license from Sony and not available for free to the public. Sorry!
