    I turn the TV on and hear a small pop (as if it's going to come on). Then the timer LED comes on, blinks ten times and goes off. I get no picture or sound. I tried unplugging it for the night, but got the same response the next morning. I'm wondering if there's a problem with the ON/Off Timer on this model. I don't understand why the timer light would respond in this manner. Its almost as if the TV is locked. Any help would be appreciated.

    I also have the same problem - TV is 3 1/2 yers old. Moved the TV, and when we hooked it up again, we only have the red timer light flashing, no power to the TV, although some inside the TV sound.

    Do you have an answer?

    The same thing happened to my TV yesterday. Timer light blinks on/off 9-10 times then nothing. I unplugged the TV and plugged it into another outlet and nothing. Is someone trying to answer this problem?

Hi, We have a 42" hslc10668phz

generally when you get a constant green light all is ok. these different lights indicate different problems within the tv. so the pattern of lights you mention suggests there is a fault of some kind (is there a troubleshooting section in your manual)? either way it needs to be looked at.

Tv keeps turning itself off

You most likely either have a faulty power supply or high voltage transformer that is failing. You can test them both with a voltmeter or multi-tester. The capacitors on the newer sets seem to overheat and burn out quickly
