Question about Televison & Video
I have a Toshiba 46HL167 that no longer turns on. Instead the power light blinks 3 times, pauses, then blinks 3 times again.
Blinking of power light is fault indication. From the number of blink that occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit side. These are called blinking codes. To
know more about these blinking coded, visit the site. It has details about blinking codes to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. If you check the site in Timeslide option, which can be
selected from the dropdown list at the top left side of the display window, it
will make search easy.

SOURCE: Power LED blinks red
it is a bad fan. it also could be a power supply. Quite often the real problem is dirt clogging up the fan(s) to the point that they need to be replaced. Operation of the set in a dirty environment is not a good idea

YES, IT is short protection and 98% chance one of the resistors that protect the convergence circuit is bad.
Good news here:Set is fixable and total parts cost will be under 25 dollars (seller I know on Ebay).
If you want to confirm this: with set unplugged, remove back cover and locate the two heat sinks with fins that have two of the STK-392-110 convergence chips---look at all the light blue resistors in front of them---I bet you find one white in the middle--gone.
Set detects no voltage and a short and shuts down--3 blinks code.
I have start to finish, step by step instructions for this repair that tell everything you will need and how to do the repair--the instructions are based on my own experience doing this repair in these sets hundreds of times.
If photos and info here help and you want the step by step (I can not give my email here.....)rate this solution as very helpful as I am doing this here for free.
Chips look like this but metal in your set will be silver.
protect resistors in front will be light blue in color and most will be marked 2.2 which means 2.2 ohms is value.

This blinking is an error code. If you contact Sony, they will provide help. Search Google for error code info.
