Question about Curtis Televison & Video
Model LCD3717A. Hi there, would appreciate any help you could give. I have the exact same TV Curtis LCD3117A, the tv does not turn on. When I press the power button the blue light flashes continuously until I cut the power off by disconnecting the plug. I've owned this TV for about 2 years now and have noticed some sudden cut offs where the TV restarts to its logo then continues with its regular function. Any help is greatly appreciated thank you.

I would suspect a problem in either the backlight assembly, or the power supply that drives it. If it's the power supply, the part may be over $100.

SOURCE: Red Light Flashing 6 times
When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.

I had the same issue with my 42HP95 after about two and a half years. Same symptom, red flashing power light, reset doesn't work and most of all, the last day of the Ryder Cup starts in 3 hours. Any other time (with exception of SuperBowl Sunday). I frantically searched the web for like symptoms and came across someone that posted the fix was to bypass the Seine Module but I had no clue what that was! So what do you do? Tear off the back of the TV and look for something that says Seine on it... Right! After that failed and 500 screws later, I decided to look for a Service Manual online. Nothing like RTFM (Google it!). I paid my $11.99 for a download Service-Manual.Net and found what appeared to be the Seine Module (SEIN). Through a little trial and error, here is what I came up with. The pic below shows the location of the said Module in the red rectangle.
I ultimately found that if I unplugged the connector from the module (in red circle) and put it in the cable management loop (other red circle), the TV would power on and has been working ever since.
According to the post I read (grains of salt) the SEINE Module is only needed if you are using coaxial type (rabbit ear) antenna. I personally don't know but it works for me. Granted, this is my experience and may not work for you but for $12, I am a happy camper. BTW, what a Ryder Cup!!! USA USA USA!!!

Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. Or, something simple like a blown fuse inside the TV.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom.
You have a few choices:
1. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.
2. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
