Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers


Hoping someone can help me with this:
In the midst of a storm, TV images blinked on/off, then all the way off. The power button/light continued to blink. I disconnected then reconnected both the power cord and the satellite cable, to no avail. After several hours and replugging power cord, still no image and only blinking power button/light.

Please help - open and appreciate suggestions! Thanx!

    I have the same problem on my 42 inch LG LCD TV. (No picture, no sound, blinking green LED 19X when powered up) The repair guy just left and he said (sorry I didn't pay close attention) it was something like the power switch (not sure he said "switch) that was not getting to the "lamps" to light up the TV. He ordered the part to be replaced in "7-10 days". I will return and report with better and more detailed information on what the problem actually is.

    Best of luck.

    I also have the same problem with my 19inch. Is it salvageable or should I be looking for a new monitor?

    Have L72S monitor, screen blinks on and off then goes off completely, while the screen is black the power botton continues to blink on and off.

    Have the L72S Monitor, the screen blinks on and off then goes completely off. While the screen is black the power botton still blinks on and off and makes a sound when switch blinks on and off.

It's a broken or burnt out lamp. Cost: $160.00 Call HP customer service for replacement. By the count of how many times the power light blinks they can tell you exactly what the problem is.

Sounds like the power supply has gone bad.

I have a lg 47LN5700 smart tv. Had a thunder storm come through, power never went out.TV has a black screen. Bottom front of TV will flash red three times. No sound no picture

This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
