    I'm having the exact same problem. I have owned my tv since early Jan. Is this a pervasive problem? I don't look forward to spending $90 if this is going to happen again in 1 year.

    I have the same problem, however mine is only 90 days old and I will return it to the store. My question is, is this something that is normal on emerson televisions or can it happen to any. We have had a 42" Sony flat screen for several years and nothing like this has happened. Also is it only LCD HDTV's or any?

    Does your TV little green light blinking and say "DIGITAL TELEVISION" for about 2 seconds then shut off?

    Is your TV still under warranty?

Yep, the inverter transformer on the Power Supply Board burned out. It's one of 5 inverters that powers up the screen.
If one is burned out, it will not have enough juice to power the screen and goes into protection mode like it's doing right now.

You'll have to replace the POWER SUPPLY/BACKLIGHT INVERTER BOARD. The cheapest place runs for about $90.

I'm not sure which one you have, there are 2 different boards for that TV. The board number should be in white on your board.
Here's for the BA8AF0F01031
And here's for the BA8AF0F01032

It's definitely cheaper than buyig a new TV. That what I did to fix mine. :)
If you throw your old board in the trash, I would like to keep it for research if possible. Here's my e-mail:

Sony kv-32hs500

Most probably the IC504 (Sharp PQ05RD21) on A-Board went bad. This model TV, including mine, is notorious for having this problem. The IC is rather easy to find and inexpensive (around $2.50). Your main problem will be desoldering the old one and soldering the new one.

Good Luck.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
