    Strangely, the exact same thing just happened to me today. Let me know if you find anything out.

    The same thing happened to my Panasonic TH-42PW5 this Saturday, January 6. We had been looking at television and all of a sudden the screen went black and the red light starts blinking. When I turned the television off and then turned it back on I got the same thing. Unfortunately I did not renew my extended warranty.

    I'm having the same problem on TH-42PZ700U. The set comes on for a half second then goes out. Power indicator flashes 7 times then pauses and repeats. Set is only 5 months old, and Panasonic is sending a repair tech out in 4 days. Why so long??? Very frustrating...

    panasonic viera TC-P50C2, Never had any problems before, quality, picture, sound, everything worked great... that is until today... out of nowhere screen went black, no sound. when i try to turn it on it makes a quick triple click sound and blink red 10x pauses for about 3 sec and repeats the blinking cycle. if i hold the power button in for 15 sec it stops the blinking. this is the only way to get the blinking to stop unless i unplug the tv. HELP! Is there anything i can try or am i doomed for repair cost?

Samsung lcd tv ltm1755b won't turn on (power light stays red)


Problem: Samsung LTM1755B with only a blinking yellow LED when you try to turn it on.

Solution: I just had one of these come in. I opened it up, and found the U501 capacitor a little suspicious looking, in that it had a deformed top. It was a 470uF 16V electrolytic 105degC 10mm x 12mm. I replaced it with a very good quality 1000uF 16V electrolytic 105degC 10mm x 16mm Nichicon UHN1C102MPD. After that repair, when I tried to turn it on, the LED was yellow for a second, then green, then I got a picture, and it appeared to work great. I then asked the owner a week later how it was working, and they said it was working just like new!
