Re: Won't turn off...constant hissing...blank sreen

Sounds like a power surge likely followed the outage- or maybe you were actually hit by lightning- and since this set did not have a built-in kill-switch (circuit breaker) it could have very well caused some significant damage. Check the internal fuses, if they are blown, chances are, so is the rest of the set. For the cost of repairing something as over-reaching as this, I'd be looking for something new (And be sure to buy a quality surge protector, so this does not occur again!)

Hope this helps in some small way!

Power flickered during thunderstorm, TV wont come back on. heard little pop from tv when lights flickered.

Unplug it and take the back off. Look too see if the fuse right next to the power cord is black. Replace it. If it pops again, you have damaged the board and need a repair guy. Look for any burnt parts before replacing the fuse.

TV won't turn on

The set is in protective shutdown because a problem was detected. The 5 blink code indicates that the problem circuit. In this case it is the blanking circuit. Were there any indications of problems prior to the storm? If not, I'll need to lok up this one for the specifics. Do you intend to repair this yourself?

Let me know and I'll provide the details.

Flashing On Timer

This is usually an indication for a scan failure, and or high voltage failure. Also, the power supply may be damaged.

Depending on the nature of the failure, this type of service can be sort of expensive. I sugget to get an estimate before deciding.

Hi, You can try resetting the TV. In some other brands/models, hard reset is done by unplugging the TV from the mains for a couple of hours. Preferably check your owner's manual for more specific instructions. Good luck and kind regards.

Pop and hiss

Sound not so good. You probably have a bad flyback transistor and now the power supply is fried also.If your lucky all youll have to do if your a tech and only if your a tech is to replace the Hi voltage transformer and the horizontal output transistor. Now these sets have high voltage still around there componets even when the sets unplugged, so please if you wanna invest in the set take it to a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
