This fault is often reffered to in the trade as tripping...basically at startup the power supply starts to supply power and then shuts the tv down and this process continues...since this is an lcd with an external power supply i would suspect this to be faulty...on many of these compact power supply units the capacitors dry up swell/bulge and leak loosing capacity the hardest part may be opening up this power supply casing screws are often located underneath rubber footpads. look for bulging capacitors on output side of power supply be carefull not to make contact with primary reservoir on ac power side you will likely find it is a capacitor of +/- 2000uf rated at 12V..this is a common fault and often a repeat fault i have found this fault to be linked or provoked by bad and noisy ac supply where air conditioners drills power tools etc are plugged into the same wall socket outlets etc

Blinking powerlight on lc- c5255u

I just repaired this LCD tv exact same model.
symptoms- when the tv turns on, all I get is a black screen with blinking green light. No other error codes. It was crazy frustrating trouble shooting this. I measured the transformers on the master and slave inverter board with a multi meter. The resistance should be 1.31 k ohms. All but one measured within the specs except one. I get an OL reading. I took a chance to order this part on eBay for 13 dollars. After soldering it, the resistance for all of the transformers were back to specs. The tv powered on and stayed on. Works good as new. If anyone has the this similar issue I would advice testing the mini transformers on your master and slave inverter board. My email is for help.

Turn on tv no picture no sound standby light starts green changes to flashing red

the number of red light flashes indicate where the fault error codes are easy enough to find if you google the model with the number of flashes.hope this helps somewhat as you dont say how many blinks!!
ps.line output transformer failure rates are quite high on these sets,usually resulting in two red blinks-pause-two red blinks-pause etc...

60" Sony SXRD that won't turn on

Sounds like the line output transformer (flyback transformer) has gone out.Depending on how old the TV is will depend on if it is worth fixing

Tv will not power up

These sets are bad about the flyback transformer and/or the horizontal output going bad. Have a repair shop check it out. This can be pricey depending on how much is bad.

Television when turned on: light goes to green then flashes twice. green light goes out and red light comes on. tv will not come on.

If the Red Light Blinks twice and goes out, the TV is in Protection Mode. There are 6 voltage outputs to the lamps around the screen. If one of those outputs is missing the TV will sense that there's a problem and refuse to turn on. The predominant failure in this model are the output transformers on the Inverter board. A properly trained technician can measure the windings on each transformer and look for an open circuit, if one is found, replace that Transformer. i was given one of these sets from a friend and I replaced an output transformer ($11 w/shipping) and I now have a fully functional TV/DVD Combo. Also verify that all of the connecting cables internally are properly seated, there have been reports or the ribbon cables from the Power supply board to the main board above it not being fully inserted and it also prevented the TV from turning on. A word of caution. There are VERY High Voltages on the inverter circuit board, only persons with proper training and knowledge should attempt this repair.
