Timer/standby red light flashes 6 times, yet won't turn on
We have replaced the remote batteries, installed them correctly, have unplugged the tv from the wall for several minutes. I read on a post to replace the "horizontal transistor beside the plyback. it is a black square parts with 3 pins.

Do a hard reset to this set, and check. If it do not help you, the main system control memory IC to this set is faulty; and should be replaced. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset; and the other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset).

try holding remote in front of a video recorder and if you push button on remote and view through video recorder you should be able to see the light blinking coming out of remote - if you see the light coming out of remote and it is still not working then the tvs sensor went bad
besides trying to unplug tv for a few minutes there is no reset for this issue
I had the same problem which also included the picture having streaks of red in it sometimes too. I found that both problems were due to the TV getting too hot inside. I bought a $7 small 4" fan from Walmart and pointed it at the back "door" of the TV (where the bulb can be replaced). Both problems have disappeared which I think is due to not letting the interior get too hot.
Not sure if there is an internal fan to cool the parts inside, but if there is it is not working well enough.
I fixed the problem by taking the batteries out of the remote and unplugging the tv for 30 minutes. At the end of 30 minutes I replaced the batteries then pushed each button on the remote in order. I then plugged the tv back in and everything worked again.
This happened to my TV a year or so ago. It ended up being a capacitor in the power supply. It took the tech about 10 minutes to replace and cost me 400 bucks!! He wouldnt tell me what he replaced, but I be it was a 2.00 part. If you are good with a soldering iron, you might be able to find it and replace it, but if you mess something up, it will cost you. The tuner module was over 700 bucks.
