You didn't mentioned the brand and model number of the tv. Any way from its appearance i think its Pioneer Plasma tv. As you says you are facing this problem every day , There is some problem with the Power supply of the Plasma monitor. Probably the electrolytic
capacitors. After a long period of use may electrolytic capacitors can become bad by the heat produced by the nearby components. The bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply can create such problems in Plasma tvs and also in Lcd tvs.

Working in the power supply of plasma tv is a skilled work. Not only the power supply of the plasma, Power supply of all the electronic equipment should be repaired by a person who has well knowledge in electronics. Because the is risk of electric shock Even if the power is removed. Because some of the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply will hold a DC charge for more than one day. This Dc charge is more lethal than the mains AC charge. If you think that you can go trough the power supply and is able to replace the capacitors with out making any harm to yourself then inform me the same with the exact brand and model number of the tv that you have. I will try to assist you to solve the problem that you are facing

SOURCE: power light blinks red - tv will not come on

I bought one of these tv's at a thrift store and it had the same problem, orange light blinking and static sound coming out of the speakers, no video at all.
The problem was the power supply board, this power supply has multiple outputs that feed the circuitry, 12V, 24v, 5V.
There was nine electrolitic capacitors I had to replace to fix it, all of them were bulged they are easy to spot, I measure one of them that was supposed to measure 1000uF but measured only 65uF. you can buy these from digikey for about 50 cents each, they need to be rated at 105 deg c and the profile has to be below the heat sink otherwise they will hit the top of the heat sink, the spacing between the leads has to be 5mm so they fit in the pcb. I replaced 3 1000uF/25v, 3 470uF/16v and 3 1000uF/16v and that fixed the problem, I bought this tv broken for 100 bucks fixed it with 6 bucks.
Good luck, don't perform repair if you are not familiar with dangerous AC voltage inside the TV.

SOURCE: TV shuts down with Red Light blinking

The tv has an internal safety switch that turn tv off when there is a short, overheating or overvoltage. This is often caused by a bad capacitor, bad cold joint or faulty IC.
Try first unplugging tv from power cable for 15 minutes or so, so to reset it, sometimes this fix the problem.
If this did not work, to find the cause of the problem you need to have a technician testing components inside tv.
You find the phone number for repair service printed on last pages of tv owner manual, also check your guaranty terms.

I have a Hisense led tv model F39V77C.

Yeah, replace the set since it appears to be trashed. But if you have a few bucks lying around you might want to try replacing the unit's power supply to see if that resolves the many issues you have.

Pioneer plasma 42 tv with external media receiver 2003 model yr flat screen goes on but receiver light red (not green) and screen gives E01 code? There is a cable from receiver to flat screen seems to be...

If the media receiver was powered up whilst the cover was off or loose, you will get E01 and nothing else until the media receiver is reset in the service mode. There is an anti tamper switch that is activated when the lid is removed.
To do this you will need the special service remote control and the service manual, may be available online and through a Pioneer service agent.

sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)

Tv won't turn on-red blinking light

This is the most common death mode for TV's. The high voltage is acting up. You set is not quite 10 years old right? Can be fixed, but involves replacing the Flyback transformer which is not cheap. It is a toss-up as to whether it is worth putting the $200 or so it will cost to fix into a set that has limited expected lifetime.

TV Won't Turn On

My phillips 42" is the same way. Just started popping up the settings menu the other day and wouldn't stop popping up until I downloaded the software upgrade from the Phillips web site. But now, two days later it won't do anything but give that same annoying red blinking light. The customer service says to take it to an authorized repair center. sounds like they have a ton of these calls everyday. The solution is to buy it from Costco, and make sure you return it and get a new one before their return policy expires.
