The blinking blue light are fault indications. From the number of blinks that occurs at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. Even though you've got this idea, service to Plasma TVs are somewhat difficult one for a user, who do not have any knowledge in electronics. If you wish to get more details, surf the following link.

SOURCE: blackout problems

It could be the LVDS cable that is connected between the logic main board and the main board, sometimes this cable is too short and comes loose from one of the boards, it could also be a sign that the logic main is going out or the panel itself is shorting out

No,you can't. This is very common. I bought a new tv and i noticed right away that it had the problem you are mentioning. I took it back for an exchange and the next tv did not have this problem...until a year later. Now,of course it does have this problem,but it is out of warranty.

I think they make televisions very poorly today.

You need to change the 1000uf caps in the power supply. only if you are handy with a soldering iron. Take back of remove psu. You will see them bulging at the top. Think there is 5 to change :)

SOURCE: SSP-R4232 Plasma TV, blue light on, but tv wont turn on.

At this point it appears that your main board is probably bad. You most likely have a 5 volt scource going to the main board but its not powering up the set. The main board is part number BN94-00796A.
You might want to have a technician look at the TV to verify this as the issue before purchasing it. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

Short circuited component/s at its main board. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes).From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it.This will make repair easy.These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times.Count it carefully.If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Hi,i have an hitatchi p50t501 plasma and i just put in on and everything was fine,then i put it on video 1 to put on direct tv, then i put it back on cable left the room and the tv light keeps blinking...


The Blue Blinking Light Hitachi.

When the light blinks 4 times it means you can possibly have 4 problems with your plasma.

1. X-Sus
2. Y-Sus
3. Power Supply
4. Sdr U or D

A good way to determine if you can fix this problem yourself is if you can build a PC. If you cant this can cost you upwards of 600$ to fix.

First get a flat area and lay a soft blanket down and lay your TV down so the back is up. Then goto your PC and goto Google and type "P50T501 Service Manual .PDF" you can buy it or if you look hard enough you can get it for free. Next in the service manual it will have a diagram of the Circuit Boards and their locations. Take the back off your Plasma and check the 4 boards. Look for burn marks, cracks, smoke mark. Take your time and look closely. When you find the broken boards unplug it and take the part number and find the replacement online. Plug it in and you should be good to go.

When i had 4 blinking lights i had to change my SDR U and D boards. They cost 100's a piece for Refurbished boards. Keep in mind im a contractor not a techno geek, and i was able to diagnose and fix my problem rather easy.

Samsung sp-r4232 power button blinks 4 times but tv wont turn on


I have this TV. My father in law tried to turn it on one day and it started making a clicking sound and never came on. So he went out and bought a new tv and gave it to me. It came on when I brought it home and worked for a couple weeks. Then just the other day it stopped working. When you hit the power button the light around it blinks four times and then you here a clicking sound. TV does not come on. Took the back panel off and I don't see any damaged caps or fuses. b435b80e-6d09-419f-a021-9b8a430e0a74.jpg
