Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

TV picture and sound goes off--leaving a blinking green light showing as on (power). Several times in the last week I have shut the power strip off and then on again and the TV went back on with the solid green light for power. TV is plugged into power strip due to build in unit cabinet, but that is not the issue since it has worked for several years that way and this issue has only come about in the last 2 weeks. TV unit is about 4 years old. Ideas?

If TV goes off and the led stays blinking, that is because the TV is going on protection.
Protection is a special diagnostic mode that starts when an internal fault has been detected.
If this happens erratically while you are watching TV, then parts that can commonly cause the problem are PSU board, main board or digital board, ballast board and converge board on DLP, inverter on LCD, low buffer and sustain boards on plasma.

I could not find the model # as the unit is built into a cabinet--can't reach the back. So I got online--and it appears they all have a lamp light that only lasts 3 years--so I ordered the replacement light and hope that is the fix. Was able to see the lamp replacement # as that was in the front base of the unit. Seems like a generic problem to many large LCD TV's.

Hope it works..

Tv does not turn on


If green light flashes more than 8 times, it could be as simple as repairing or replacing the power supply. Unplug the TV ,remove the back. Look for bulged or leaking capacitors on the power supply. Do it yourselfer? only if you have soldering skills, or purchase replacement board. remember, used boards are just as old as your failed board, buy new or rebuilt, Good Luck

My Projection Tv - when I turn on it turns right back off no picture no sound ? help


To know where the problem is:

when set shuts off and green power light goes off:

On front of set press and hold both the menu and input buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it means.

LG 47LC7DF Green Light Blinks 16 Times - No Picture or Sound


Well dont keep it on!

By running it after it shutdown and it finally did its last pop that added another $XX to the parts bill.

The control boards (2) have now failed There are burned Capacitors ( pop!) and possibly even a few transistors burned out. This is not a DIY it is a Tech job as once changed these boards require additional tuning of the convergence factor.
