Our tv goes on fine, pic and sound just as good as always...but a little while later the receptor light lower right hand, which is green when on, starts blinking, we lose pic, the sound is fine....then when we tap the receptor light the pic comes on for some time before it happens again...though it has been happening more times than not.

This television is having problem with intermittent tuner reception.The tuner is the signal processor for the television. The video section is intermittent. This could be a simple matter of cold solder joints that can occur over time due to heat expansion and contraction.This causes the metal in solder to expand and then when the television cools down, the metal that is expanded cannot contract.The solder joints then becomes intermittent. All televisions suffer from this problem.Since you are able to still able to receive the video signal, there appears to be no component damage. You will need to take this television in to a service center and have them rework the solder on all the areas around the tuner section of the television and any other areas that may be susceptible to the problem due to overheating.You can call Magnavox customer support at this telephone number 1-800-705-2000 and ask them for the location of a service center in your area. Or take it in to a local repair center and have them test and service the television for you. You can also try taking it to a school where they are teaching electronic repair and ask them if they will work on the television for you.They will usually do the work for a cost of parts and a small labor charge. Call them first to make sure they will help you and tell you how you can get the television serviced This may not be the only problem you are having with the television. That is why you need to have it tested first. I hope this information help you with your problem.

I have a SONY KF-WE50 rear projection tv, a few weeks ago it started to turn the pic and sound off while the green light was flashing around 30 times. After the light finished flashing both the picture and...


the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

TV has gone into "protect mode" to do just that to protect against the damaging failure that has been detected, you will need a servicer to diagnose the failure. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

The DM is fine if the led isnt blinking. Your set is going into protective shutdown. Try pressing the menu and the device/input buttons on the set both in together for 5 seconds to see if the set will blink a series of blinks pause then blink another series of blinks. Such as 2 blinks pause then 2 blinks, Then let me know what the blinks were and I will assist you with whats wrong
