These blinks are fault indications, and are called blinking codes. For Philips brand TVs, we cannot count these blink directly; there is an other way to count these, and should be converted to error codes numbers. If you wish to get more details about how to count these blinks to Philips brand TVs, check the link sited here. After converting these blinks to error codes, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Check this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

SOURCE: blinking red lights

If your TV is less then a year old, i would suggest to call the vendor or manufacturer to have the LCD repair under warranty. Most electronics devices carry one year warranty.
The failure of your LCD is not related to any fuse since you're still getting some lights from it.
Good Luck.

Most likely you have defective capacitors in the Power Supply. It is not an expensive repair but something that needs to be done by a svc. co., if your not familiar with Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS). I hope this helps and Thank You for using FixYa.. Let me know....

SOURCE: No power to my Phillips 42 inch Plasma

Most likely it going to be a power supply related problem. The red blinking light is a code for a TV tech to diagnose the problem on the power supply board itself or the board that regulates the power for the screen. Some manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board. A TV repair shop should be able to look at it for you and tell you which board is bad.
Replacement boards can be found at a good price at Shopjimmy.com

SOURCE: Philips 50'' Plasma TV model 50pfp5332D/37 GREEN BLINKING ON LOGIC BOARD

Main digital processor IC on the board has damaged. It is not a replaceable part, as normal soldering techniques cannot be applied to de-solder it out from the board, or to solder a new one in place. Card base replacement should be done.

I have a 26mf231 Magnavox 26 inch tv. The screen on the tv just flashes over and over. Never powers up. I took out the power board and all the capacitors look good. Thanks in advance


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy.

I have a 50inch plasma tv green light go on for a few seconds then blings red . i replaced two blown capacitors still same promblem.... need help


You must have some electronic experience when you replaced the bad capacitors.
Best thing to do is find a Service Manual for your TV on the internet. It will really help you in a big way to diagnose the source of the problem. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20.
Another thing you might want to look at is the power supply for the screen. Most manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board. The TV maybe trying to power up the screen and failed. Then, when into protection mode. The Service Manual should define the red light blinking code for you.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Sharp 37 inch aqous tv power button blinking red


If the blinking light seems to be blinking in a pattern, then it is an error code. The end result in any case, is the main power supply is not functioning properly, or the backlight power supply has a problem.

I can't get my tv to turn on... nothing but blinking red light


Dont know if this will work for you or not, but my brother gave me his because of the same problem. It would power up and a green light would come on, then after 10 -15 seconds it would change to a red blinking light. I plugged a usb cable into the service port on the side and left the other end unplugged. Then plugged the tv back into the power. i took a small screwdriver and ran across the contacts in the end of the usb cable until both the red light and the green lights came on. I did this several times listening fot the clicking noises in the TV. after doing this for approx 20 seconds, i pressed the power button and the TV worked fine. 5 days now and no problems. Only thing I can think is I somehow reset the software and now it is working fine. Hope some of you can figure this out and give it a try. if the TV is just sitting, you have nothing to lose

An earlier post of the smaller model of this with the same problem said to remove the metal cover over the power supply.

I have the 26MF231D and it worked great afterward (even though you can't mount it)

Here is how you remove the cover.
