Question about RCA DTC210 DirecTV DTV Receiver

1 Answer

Power problem As soon as I plug in the receiver the leds for "power" and for "HDTV" blink on and off continuously and nothing comes through to the screen. The flickering leds are accompanied by an electronic switch on / off sound. Any ideas on how to analyze, repair or if anyone knows that this is non-repairable, I would appreciate the feedback.

    I have the exact same problem as the previuos writer. Of course, I bought this at a second hand store, so maybe this used to belong to the previous writer. Then again, it could be a trend? Anyone else have this problem?

Insignia ns-55l260a13 does not power on. Power led blinks 5 shorts, pause, 2 shorts and stays on. Screen blinks and nothing else happens afterwards.


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Trouble code: Standby LED blinks 9 times


Try pushing the buttons on the remote and let me know what comes up on the screen if anything.
Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up
a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred.
Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC.
We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described
above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink
codes.
