Hi.


Your TV went in stand by and does not wake up because an internal fault had been detected, and now the TV is in protect mode.

If after the fault the TV went in standby and does not wake up, then the TV has on protect mode after detecting a fault.
When this happens higher voltages are shut down to prevent further damage.
Only +5V low voltage from PSU is allowed to keep the diagnostic led blinking.

This state can be triggered by any kind of fault, the blinking led in this case is not an error code.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or DVD connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a led on (sometimes flashing) in front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The led light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1 The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the standby fault mode.


If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

<img src="mas_baz.jpg" /><br />There are three LED indicators. LAMP, TIMER, STANDBY/TEMP. Each Led or combination leds indicated problem.<br /> <ul> <li>LAMP blinking : The picture will automatically appear in about 15 seconds.</li> <li>TIMER and STANDBY/TEMP blinking : A cooling fan inside the set is not operating normally.</li> <li>LAMP and STANDBY/TEMP blinking : Lamp cover on the rear of the set is not properly shut.</li> <li>STANDBY/TEMP blinking : Check if the ventilation hole on the rear of the set is blocked, because if the inner temperature is too high, the power will shut off.</li> <li>All LED blinking : Lamp may be defective.<br /></li></ul>It takes about 30 seconds for the TV to warm up, so normal brightness may not appear immediately. The TV has a fan to keep the inside lamp from overheating. You'll occasionally hear it working.<br /><br /><br />

I get a red screen and then it goes black no picture i get sound just no pic the red led light blinks 7 times


In most cases on these models the red crt is shorted and causes the set to go into a shutdown mode and flash the timer light 7 times. The part number for the red crt is 8-733-664-25 but is no longer available.

Black screen and red timer light is on


It may be the problem of the Dish connection or stablizer. Remove the stablizer and connect the Tv direct to switch board and re connect the dish connection. Then switch on the TV it will work.

HCM4215W 42 in. Rear Projection Television


When the screen goes blank, hit any remote function that will show up on the screen-like volume bar. If the display is missing as well, then you have a tv problem. If the volume display is there when the tv picture is not, you may require a software upgrade.
