These 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 stage 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, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

My introva cp9 wont turn on after my first few usages The led on the front flashes reddish orange and the led on the screen side flashes green then nothing else happens


You may have to hold the power button down longer like five ten seconds, it might not be off at all it could be in deep sleep called S3 standby or worse HIBERNATE. Hold the power button down til it cycles all the way thru and comes on, then I can help you disable all that stuff, the best way to save energy is to insulate your house, dam if I didn\'t have a laptop I\'d have no heat at all.

Reset your TV. Unplug your iLO TV from the wall and remove any connected devices. Hold the front power button in for five seconds, then release. Plug your TV back in, turn it on and confirm that it is working again.

  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen A2 slightly.

Samsung LN-T2632H won't turn on.


Follow these steps to figure out what problem is.
When you turn on TV, look at the back and see if the back light on. If it is on, the power supply and inverter work fine. The suspection now is main board and T-con board (the small board on the middle-top of the panel)
To find the problem from the main board or not. Look at the power supply and measure Vs on - turn on the TV, this approx 5 vlt DC needs constant once you turn on the TV. If it is drop or unstable - main board problem - replace it.
If Vs on is good - disconnect the T-con cable from the power sup. If power sup stop clicking - T-con need replacing. Hope it help.
