I experienced the same problem. I found a small capacitor in the corner of the board with a bad solder connection. You do have to remove the 6 screws holding the board to the plastic slide to get to the back side of the board.

Try looking in the troubleshooting section of the operating manual (usually near the back) to see if that tells you about flashing 4 times

Sounds like a loose connection or a part that heats up, sometimes you can get a can of freeze (radio shack) and spay on the part if the part is over heating to see if you can get it to stay up longer.

TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front.

The DT250 likely has one or more bad 470uf 25v capacitors. You should replace all four. Look at some of these youtube videos for how do do the replacement.

Order 4 new 470uf 25v capacitors from P/N P10274-ND

Use first class mail as your shipping method. Will be under 10 dollars total.

Apex GB51HD09 will not turn on

On the power board you will find 4- 35Volt X 1000mfd radial lead capacitors on the right rear corner of the board all in a row from right to left, the 2 outside capacitors have gone high ESR. This is a common problem with this model.

It's possible that the convergence IC's may be bad in this set along with a few resistors. A TV repair shop should be able to fix the set for you.
