Westinghouse digital VR-3730 tv I noticed that my tv would blink off for a few seconds then come right back on, this happened intermittantly for quite a while, months, until finally it blinked off and has never come back on... i suspect capacitors on the power supply board as I have fixed a simialr problem in the past on a different tv but was wondering if this is a known issue?

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

SOURCE: 26" Insignia LCD TV will not power up. Green Light Blinks 1x

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

I just fixed a neighbor's by replacing the 2200MFD capacitor on the power supply board. Thanks for the help, worked great. If you replace it got for a 16V instead of the 10V and hopefully it won't fail that way again.

Just be careful and take notes when you're digging into it. And mark exactly where the card cage is before taking it loose.

Hope this helps,

Then the minutes will blink. Press SETTING until the correct minutes are shown. Press SELECT to set the minutes.

Then the seconds will blink. If you want to set them, press the SETTING button to set the seconds at 00 and press SELECT again.

The Year will blink. Press SETTING untill the right year is shown. Then, press SELECT to set the year.

The Month will blink. Press SETTING until you get the proper month. Then press SELECT to set the month.

Finally, day blinks. Press SETTING until the right day is shown and press SELECT to set the day.

That's it. You've reset your time clock. Good luck.
