Red then green blinking lights.

My set won't come on and all I have is the red-green blinking lights. This happened a few years ago and the service tec tried for several hours to run down the problem untill he finaly talked to a nec guy who told him of a "secret, unpublished code" to reset the unit. He pressed 2 or 3 of the function control buttons (vol. up---vol. down---proceede...) and the unit reset and worked great. Now it has happend again and I don't remember which of the 6 buttons he pushed to reset it. Anyone ever hear what buttons do the trick

Sharp lc-22sv6u won,t power on. no green light.

Sound like the TV is in protection mode. This happens when a part goes bad inside. the TV turns OFF to protect the other parts from being damaged.
Most commonly it's a power supply related issue. A bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board is to blame.
For a do-it-yourself fixer with electronic experience, a Service Manual is the best for trouble shooting the problem down to the bad part. Normally, you can find it over the internet for less than $20.

LG 42 LCD no sound or picture

Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.

Sony Bravia KDL26S3000 TV

According to the service manual if the red light is blinking then the TV may need to be service. Since your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
I would suggest to contact Sony to ask them for the nearest authorized service center to have the tv repair.
Good Luck.

Power light blinks red, TV doesn't turn on

if you are not technical i sugest you have this checked out by a professional most probably a fuse has gone from iside or your driver board has gone down. The blinking should be normal after you have turneds it off because some capacitors will be discharging.

Hard time turning tv on and once on, will turn off after a period of time

Sounds like it may have been jarred or theres a larger tall capacitor in the power supply that goes bad in these sets alot. Its not something a layman should attemt. As a matter of fact the only thing in this set that is user replaceable, is the lamp. Sorry but your going to need the service manual and soecialized tools tom trouble shoot this set. you really should seek out a pro for this repair.
