Question about LG 26LX1D 26 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

TV is blinking red and green and not turning on AT ALL!! HELP!!

I have a 26" LG LCD TV (model number 26LC7D) that went out last Wed afternoon. Now when the unit is off (or standby) the led on the front of the TV is a steady red. On power up it flashes green and then stays green. I went to turn it on and its blinking green then red and will not turn on at all, just keeps blinking. I tried unplugging it and let it set for a few minutes, nothing. I tried a different outlet, sprayed air in around it in case of dust. (which I dust it once a week) I have had it unplugged since Wed and plugged it in today and still nothing, still blinking. This is the TV I use in my den, both TV's are hooked to digital DVR cable boxes. I checked the timer button, was not that because it did this same thing one day last week and it powered up after I unplugged it for awhile and I checked all timers then, and there is absolutely NOTHING in the manual about it blinking and not turning on. I do not know what else do to here, the TV is only a year old and what does the flashing green and red light mean? Thanks for any and all help, its greatly appreciated.

The flashing light means the set is in protection mode or shut down because an internal fault was sensed. These sets have a common fault with power supply capacitors they become leaky over time and eventually breakdown causing a dead set . It's not an expensive repair $150-200 -get an estimate first.
