Fast blinking timer light and tv will not turn on

About two months ago the tv would turn itself on in the middle of the night, I would turn it of with the remote and in the morning you could see the timer light blinking fast. You could not turn the tv back on until the light would go to a slow blink. This worked for about five times in a three day period. Now the tv timer sits there and blinks fast and never goes back to a slow blink so I can turn it back on. I have gone through the trouble shooting codes until I am ready to vomit and I have no hair left after pulling it out talking to the Mitsubishi non help line. Does the tv need to be reprogrammed ? I see it has a place on the front for a card. I have called at least ten tv repair places and they have no clue. John Thomas

Re: Fast blinking timer light and tv will not turn on

The television is shutting itself off to protect itself. The blinking light is a code pattern. The specific code determines whether or not you need an LCD Controller Unit, Main Board, power supply or something else. You would need the service manual. There are parts distributors you can get it from and the parts as well. If soldering and tv repair is not something you are entirely familiar you may want to seek a tv repair person. The manufacturer's support may walk you through the service menus to complete a factory reset depending upon the symptoms.

Tv will not turn on. timer light constantly blinks

If you can get into the main menu go to load factory default and reboot, This will reload factory settings and this operation will erase all unwanted settings and load back to factory default. so you can load your own settings and take back control of your tv.

Perhpas the TV has a timer function that is turning it on at a certain time. Does it seem to occuring at the same time of night? check the TV settings for a timer.

The only other possibility is that the camper is losing AC power in the middle of the night, and when the power comes back on perhaps the TV is turning on.

However, i rather suspect the first problem...

I am a certified RV technician, so if you have other problems with your camper please let me know

JVC PD-42WV74 tv turned itself off and unable to turn it back on. Green light blinks on receiver and TV.

Unplug the TV set, after a few minutes, plug it back again. If you are lucky, the TV will be okay!
