I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)


2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found at tv-part.com but supplies are limited. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes


Hello,
the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

Power coming in to television, but when I push the power button to turn the tv on; it does not come on.


You may have what I call the hard to turn on issue, look again in the power supply inside the set--follow power cord that goes to it and look for puffy filter caps:

Our WS-55313 Mitsubishi Projection screen tv was on then just died. When we push power button or remote on, the green power light comes on for a couple of seconds then the tv goes off .


do the self check this model has.


When green light goes off press and hold both the input and menu buttons for five seconds and release both buttons.

The power light will blink a two digit error code like, two blinks, two blinks, a pause and then repeat it several times.

let me know what the error code you find is and I will let you know what it means.

Sony Triniton Wega Model KV 32HS510. After pushing the power button,the tv starts to power up, then the standby light blinks 7 times then pauses before blinking 7 times again. It continues to do this,...


This is usually an indication of a failure in the scan amplifier sections. When the scan amplifiers or high voltage sections fail, the main power supply will usually also require servicing.

It is very common that the fly-back and high voltage multiplier and also the horizontal output stage fails in these sets. Along with it, the power supply will usually require to be serviced. On rare occasions, the vertical deflection amp fails.
