TV won't switch on: Power light is flashing 4 times

The Power is on and today we noticed the power light on the tv is just flashing. It flashes 4 times then stops. I believe it's some sort of diagnostic check, but how do i get out of it. I don't know what to try. I've disconnected all the cables, plugged out the power, changed the fuse, retried power, held the on button whilst plugging the power back on but it still flashes. Please can someone help? i've never had a problem with this tv in the 12 months i've had it

Philips 42PFL7603D/10 won't turn on flashes red 4 times slowly then red 6 times quickly

This is an indication of error codes for defects inside the TV. In order to ensure this is not caused by some erratic signal to system IC, switch off TV manually, Switch off power and remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If it does not work even then, the TV might need service.

Switch off the TV from remote, then switch off the on/off button on the TV, remove the plug pin from the power outlet. Cool off for 48 hours and then retry. If nothing works, better refer it to a qualified service technician.

The TV will not turn on. When the switch at the lower left corner is pressed the light in the switch flashs green for about 4 seconds as the TV seems to go through a start up procedure. Then the light...

The red flashing light is the service code. My guess is the power supply is bad now, but it could be something else. If the TV is under warranty, take it in and get if fixed. If it is not, then you may try to check the power supply first. Count the flashes of the red light and check online for the issues when this model flashes, 4 times or 6 times... or 9 times, etc.

Good luck!
