Bought a used panasonic flat panel hdtv. power will not come on. Did not come with a remote, bought a universal still can't get it on. Can you help


Are you getting the standby light , a red light next to the ON/OFF switch. To boot up just touch the channel UP or DOWN button. The stand by light will turn green and the TV should work. If it does not just count the number of times the red light blinks ( fast blink / slow blink ).Blinking standby light would mean you have to consult a professional service man.

I get red rings when i turn on my xbox 360


3 Blinking red lights often means that your Xbox 360 has suffered from hardware failure.

4 Blinking red lights means that your Audio / Video cable is not correctly connected (it's the colorful one; Red, white, yellow; green, blue, red if Component)

If it IS just three lights, and you bought your xbox 360 under three years ago, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX

Omnitech jumbo universal remote control and vizio hdtv


Here are the instructions for auto code search from the Omnitech manual:
Automatic Search
There is another way to set up your controller, that does not use the brand code lists. You can let your
controller search through all of its available codes automatically in order to set the connection to the
target device. To do this, follow these steps:
1.Turn on the target device.
2.Point the controller at the target device and press and hold the Code Search button for around 3
seconds, until the LED light stays red.
3.Next select the type of device the target unit is by using the Cable/TV/VCR/DVD/Sat Buttons (i.e. if
it is a TV that you are trying to control, press the TV button). The LED light should then blink once,
then stay red.
4.Press the On/Off button on the controller slowly and repeatedly until the device you are trying to
connect with turns off. (Note: the LED light will blink each time you press the On/Off button). When
this happens, press the ENTER button in order to store the code and the LED light will turn off.

No picture blinking stand by light


I hve worked on a number of these units , your description is typical of a shorted blue picture tube. The protection circuits in the tv detect that there is a problem thus shutting the unit down to prevent further damage. Sony had a bad run of picture tubes in this series. The replacement cost of the tube is about $250 plus labor. My estimate would be for the repair about $400-500 depending on where you live and how honest your local technican is. I will caution you however, that you could replace this tube and the red or green could go. These would not be covered by the technicians warranty. When these sets are working, they have a superb picture and it is easy to get lured into fixing them. Scrivitron
