Tv won't turn on-red blinking light

My tv will not turn on. It appears to be in some kind of standby mode. I am not getting any picture when I turn on the tv. It sounds like it is going on, but nothing happens. There is a red blinking light that appears. It blinks 2 times then pause, then 2 times, pause. I have tried unplugging it for days and nothing has happened. Can you help?

Re: Tv won't turn on-red blinking light

This is the most common death mode for TV's. The high voltage is acting up. You set is not quite 10 years old right? Can be fixed, but involves replacing the Flyback transformer which is not cheap. It is a toss-up as to whether it is worth putting the $200 or so it will cost to fix into a set that has limited expected lifetime.

TV Won't turn on, Has flashing red light.

Flashes of standby light is fault indication. Count it and confirm the number of flashes occurs at one time switch ON. If you wish to get more details about these blinking codes to Toshiba sets, check this link. Pull up older posts there.

Sony TV turns off immediately after turning on

Two blinks - B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits. Check this link to get more details about Sony Blinking codes.

Hello I have a Samsung TV Model# HL50A650C1FXZA I have 3 lights blinking 2 green and 1 red light what is the problem

Hello, I try to help. But your questions not spesific.
Below are conditions lamp indicators that appear blinking and solutions:

1. If Timer and Lamp blinking --> Auto timer on/off was been set, picture will appear ~ 25 second.
2. If Timer and Standby/Temp blinking --> A cooling fan inside the set is not operating properly.
3. If Lamp and Standby/Temp blinking --> The lamp cover on the rear of the set is not installed properly.

I hope that solve your problem.

The red standby light is flashing twice with a pause, then twice and a pause etc. There's no picture or sound and the light flashed whether we have the tv on or off. Any suggestions?

This blinking is a diagnostic code. Please update this with the model number. These sets contain circuitry that will shut the set down and display a code like this when a problem is detected. With the model number, I can look up the problem and provide potential repair suggestions.

Sony Trinitron Color TV KV-35V65 - No Picture, red light stand/by timer flashing

A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.
