What make and model camera? With some cameras this is perfectly normal, a blinking light indicates that the camera is still buffering.

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 section 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 procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Power on difficulties.


Hello,

Either the power supply has an issue , or you have a bad buffer board and Ysus scan board or both.red light indicating may mean power supply , 7 blinks the buffers and y board.
It could be just a few bad capacitors on the Power Supply, there could be a bad capacitor on the Y board if its bad it needs to be replaced with the buffers together
If you want to attempt the repair yourself you can do a visual of the power board caps will appear swollen on top.
The ones you are looking for are located almost center bottom of the power board,Usually I can see them clearly with the back on simply shining a light into the back through the holes


With the back removed you will see a few circuit boards the upper one (ac cord runs to it through a small board) is the power supply, it has a lot of capacitors on it (cylindrical standing straight up soldered in and marked on the sides with the positive/negative sides and uf and Volts values)
Philips uses 2200uf or 3300uf at 35Volts rating capacitors, they cost about $1-$2 each

The power board and back unscrew with a torx bit and screwdriver size 10 and 15 , if you do not know how to desolder and resolder then do not attempt this as you may damage the TV more than fix it.
We do not recommend do it yourself, but depending on your knowledge and technical ability you may be able to.
You can replace the whole power supply, .
If there is a blinking red light on the TV count the blinks,if it still blinks after replacing the swollen cap this would indicate a bad buffer board ,
check the capacitors by looking for the swollen tops .
I hope that will helpout.....

My tv just stopped working, and the red light just blinks. whats wrong?


COUNT THE BLINKS----this set has a built in error buffer--if you have to unplug it and plug it back in-when it does not come on count the power light blinks.


3, a pause and 3 is the most common.

Let me know the error code and I will try to help you.

Philips 42pf9630/37a, Blink red LED 7 times, No Picture No Sound


7 blinks indicates a bad buffer board, usually I replaced the Y board and the buffer/s about $500-600 in parts. but before you buy anything open the set and look at the power supply if you see two capacitors that look swollen , bulging on top they need to be changed and may solve the issue. the power supply is middle top . If you are not wanting to repair it yourself then know that you do have some circuit board repairs needed.
thanks

Red light flashes & times


7 blink error is 8.6 volt error usually tied to y main board. would advise to disconnect y main from power supply and verify vs voltage. if vs is present replace y main and general protocol is to replace y upper and lower buffers as well as they complete circuit

Blinking red indicator light


Hey pollyannac,
The red blinking light probably means either the flash is recharging, or the camera buffer is full and it is writing files to your memory card which the lcd monitor should read Busy while the camera is writing the files. If it is the flash recharging then you could try using more powerful batteries such as the Canon NiMH AA batteries. If the problem ends up being the camera is writing images to the memory card you could try getting a memory card that has a high write speed. These memory card are usually more expensive, but in my opinion well worth it. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
