Push channel or power button on TV remote or TV itself to turn it ON, if still it wont turn ON, unplug it for few minutes and try again. Still does not turn ON, let me know exact model number to find out problem reason and intimate does standby light flashing? if yes, how many times its blinking. Thanks.
I had the same problem which also included the picture having streaks of red in it sometimes too. I found that both problems were due to the TV getting too hot inside. I bought a $7 small 4" fan from Walmart and pointed it at the back "door" of the TV (where the bulb can be replaced). Both problems have disappeared which I think is due to not letting the interior get too hot.
Not sure if there is an internal fan to cool the parts inside, but if there is it is not working well enough.
Try unplugging the TV for about 10 minutes and then tunung it on again. Try a factory
To reset the TV to factory settings
1 Turn the TV on.
2 Hold down on the remote control.
3 Press and release the POWER button on the TV front panel. The TV will turn itself off,
then back on.
4 Release .
I'm assuming step 2 means hold down the power button.
Hi, I had the "Ghost In The Machine". I tried out what I descibed in my original posting.
#1. I unplugged The Set.
#2. I pushed in and held in the power button in for about 5 minutes before bedtime. ( The PC trick I learned) I gave it 5 minutes because a tv set has much more power inside it.
#3. I again pushed in and held the power button in again for 3 minutes the next morning.
#4. I plugged the tv in again. The red standby light was lit. The set did not immeadiatly come on when I tried to power it up.
#5. 5 Minutes later I returned and hit the power button on the remote and it came on like nothing ever was wrong.
#6. It has been fine now for 3 days!!! Powers up when commanded and shuts down like normal. It has yet to come back on or act up as it was doing.
I will keep a watch on it and if it starts up acting again I will repost. I hope this information will be of use to anyone who experienced the same problem. It didn't cost a dime, just some patience. Thanks for a forum that people can exchange information and save trouble and money unless all options are exhausted. Bill
Its the BULB people! You need to change it every 3 to 5 years! I have had my sony 55" for 6 years... I had Best Buy come out 3 years ago, changed the bulb... it worked fine. Just started flasshing and shut its self off and back on again. Time for another bulb.
