SOURCE: TV power blinks 7 times, but won't turn on

Marine on a mission here! To help every one that takes the time to post their problem. Times are tuff. PPL need to put food on their tables and not worry about calling in a tv repair man and spend hundreds. Took me a year to get the fix. Fixed 2 50" plasmas for 80 cents. After being told it would be better to replace than repair. BS! I held out glad I did. This is free advise, it will cost your your time and some pocket change.

Most people call this "The blinking light of death".(part went bad)
Your TV when into protection mode to prevent further damage.
The repair shop may cost over $100 for someone just to look at it.
Or if you know someone with electronic repair knowledge, they have a service manual at nodevice.com
Most replacement parts you can get a shopjimmy.com ( go there to just to get an idea of what the parts costs).
Good Luck

SOURCE: panasonic hd tv light blinks 7 times

Hi,

Unfortunately this appears to be a common issue developing with these Panasonic sets i.e the '7 blinks of death'!

Several customers are complaining about it. The problem is caused by one, both, or all of the following boards: SC board, SD board, and SU board.

Most commonly, the SC board is the one that has failed and because Panasonic have received so many complaints about this issue they are now agreeing to replace the SC board under extended warranty.

However this is not widely known amongst the general public and Panasonic have kept it very quiet.

I would suggest that you make contact with the Panasonic Concierge service centre. Make them aware that you are aware of the SC board issue and that there is an extended warranty on this and ask them to replace it.

However if it happens that one of the other boards has failed be aware that Panasonic are not covering these under warranty and you will be charged for the repair in this case.

The Panasonic Concierge service is available from here

Thanks for using FixYa.

What's your problem? won't turn on..... yellow/orange light continually flashes three times...


Toshiba Regza 37in - 37HL17
TV will not turn on - Yellow power ind. Light blinks three times...
Fixed with a firmware update (hard to believe, but true). Search Google for a file named: 2007SEN069.zip (don't worry if the page you find it on doesn't mention the 37HL17 - it worked fine). Unzip the file, and copy the 3 folders and 3 files to the root of a small SD card. The SD card MUST be 2GB or less in size (I used a 1GB card), and it MUST be formatted with FAT-16 (not FAT-32). Mine was pre-formatted as FAT (FAT-16). The SD port is on the back of the TV behind a cover plate near the power cable. You do NOT need to remove the back cover of the TV, just the small cover plate (1 screw). UNPLUG the TV; remove the cover plate; insert the SD card (prepped as explained above); Plug in the TV; Watch the yellow lights blink, then turn blue, then go dark; UNPLUG the TV; remove the SD Card and replace the cover; Plug in the TV; Yellow lights will blink a few times (this is normal); when blinking stops, turn on the TV and you should be good to go. :-)
Pictures attached are from a Toshiba software upgrade bulletin I found online.

The 7 blinks on this model indicates that the horizontal section of the TV has stopped working. Horizontal Deflection Stopped

Occurs when either:

1) a +B overcurrent is detected (IC5007), or
2) overheating is detected (Thermistor TH5002).

I have the serrvice manual if you need it. Let me know where to send it to.

Based on service manual info, it cant blinks 7 times as per symptoms, please count again blinks. It can be 5 times.
If its 7 times blink, Horizontal Deflection stopped in this case. If you want to repair it at your own, please let me know to guide you further but it is necessary you should have knowledge of electronics.
