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 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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Check the module that the power cord connects to, look for swollen capacitors, probably 3-4 parts will have "bulging tops"
Capacitor Lab Visual Signs of Capacitor Failure Bulging and Leaking

Check the pictures on the featured link, look for this type of failure in your TV. You do need soldering skills to change the defective parts. Be Aware of the +- polarity on the parts you are replacing.

SOURCE: Screen is blank but sound is there.

See http://www.fixya.com/support/t860220-screen_blank
For the same solution. Your backlight and inverter should be replaced. %0.00 if you do it yourself.

Take care

SOURCE: Model 32PT830H37A Philips TV.

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 ofcourse) and found four bulged capacitors. Many electronic companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 yearsinstead of 10-20. The capacitors failprematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in allsorts of devices. Here are some options . 1.
1.Have it fixed by a professional 2. 2.Dig into your TV, find PSB, Check for faultycaps. If you find some(bulged orleaking) bad caps replace the entire board 3. 3.Remove and then replace individual faultycaps. This takes some solderingskill. Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourselfit will save you hundreds.
Hope this helps thanks for using fixya

Hello

There is something confusing the system control of your TV and it should me resetted. To reset it, just switch OFF your TV with its front panel power control switch, and after that, unplug the TV from the wall socket. Wait for about 5 minutes or so, and the plug it and switch It ON. If this does not work for the first time, give some more time to reset, say about an hour or so, and try. OK.

Check the set for normal operation. Take out the SD card, and connect it to external antenna. If it captures transmissions, the SD card might have some data that interfere with the TVs firmware.
