When press power button on, it flashes green twice and nearly comes on but then goes to red flashing light. Televison will not come on now. It use to come on after trying this sequence a few times but no longer does. Im trying to find out has anybody else had this problem and if so what is the cause?

Here's how to scan for TV codes on your DIRECTV remote
1.Make sure your TV is turned on.
2.Slide the mode switch at top of remote to "TV".
3.Press and hold the MUTE button. This is located above the number 1 button.
4.While still holding down MUTE, press and hold the SELECT button until green light at the top of the remote flashes twice.
5.Then enter 991, the green light on remote should flash twice.
5b. Press 1 again (it will flash twice
again), then you press the power on button at the very top right.
6.Point remote at TV and press CHANNEL UP button. Tap the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly until the TV powers off.
*If you hit channel up very fast, you risk going past the code. Pressing
channel down will back it up. I alway hit channel up very fast till the
tv turns off, then back it up slowly till it comes back on.
7.When the TV powers off, press and release the SELECT button.
*Note: If the green light flashes three times before TV responds, then
all codes have been cycled through. Our remote controls are guaranteed
to program to your DIRECTV receiver, however your TV may not be
compatible with our remote control.
this is an error code and directs the service engineer to where to lookfor the fault. I recomendyou contact a compertant service enginner to evaluate this fault for you as there are not much the layman can do.
chances are the water has managed to get into the tuner.or worse onto the main signal board. if you are in the uk you can try www.tvs-services or call 01245302539 for part availability. this is a job for a service engineer only. Dont forget to get your aerial and cable replaced as it will happen again
