    I have this problem now also. For a little while the tv has turned on and instantly turned back off. Now all I get is the tv attempting to turn on but then the standby light keeps blinking and it still does not turn on. I noticed the light blinks 6 times and pauses continuously. I wonder if that means anything, I havent found my manual yet.

The 5 blinks can indicate a picture tube starting to fail. Carefully open up the back and look for the flyback transformer. It will be the part with the large red wire coming out the top that goes to the side of the picture tube. There should be 2 controls on the flyback, screen and focus. Turn the screen control slightly clockwise. If the set stays on, the picture tube is starting to fail and you have bought yourself time to find a replacement. If that fails, then you will need to investigate other possibilities that will involve soldering. Let me know if you need to do that.

The 6 blinks indicate no horiszontal. This can be as simple as a couple of bad capacitors or the "jungle" IC. If you can solder, please post another question with the model and a brief description indicating that you can work in the set and we'll continue to track this down.

Thanks,
Dan

My magnavox tv model num 50mf231d137 will not turn on it turns on then turns off with red light 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 google.com/+GopakumarGopalan

Turn on tv no picture no sound standby light starts green changes to flashing red


the number of red light flashes indicate where the fault lies...sony error codes are easy enough to find if you google the model with the number of flashes.hope this helps somewhat as you dont say how many blinks!!
regards,steve.
ps.line output transformer failure rates are quite high on these sets,usually resulting in two red blinks-pause-two red blinks-pause etc...

Tv wont turn


The blinking red light at the the front of the television is the "Diagnostic STANDBY/TIMER LED".
This little red light will blink 2, 4, or 5 times and then stay off for three-seconds. And blink again for 2, 4, or 5 times. This cycle repeats. The most common diagnostic code is the 4-blink code.

When the red LED blinks 4-times, it means one of two possible causes:
1) +13V is not supplied on the A-board. Or, 2) IC502 is faulty.

It is best to take this television set to a repair facility and ask that the +13V power supply be repaired.
The copper tracks and integrated circuit pads are very thin and delicate on the KV-24FV12 circuit board, and will easily lift off of the circuit board, if the incorrect desoldering tool is used. Unless one has a good quality PACE vacuum desoldering unit, one should not attempt to repair the television.
