I believe it is. About $250 repair if you bring it in. $400 at the very most. I would have a quote done before makng a final decision. It may just be as simple as needing a power supply or capacitor which is common now-days.

7 blinks

Assuming the basics have been signed off, the usual reason that a set will not fire up is a power supply problem. In sets like yours the supply comes from the transistor that supplies the screen with pulses and hence high voltage. In short with a set as old as this I personally would not be bothered getting it repaired. You could probably find someone giving a working set away for free on numerous local selling websites.

Standby light blinks 7 times on my kv30hs420 is it worth the repair

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. 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, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

7 blinking light on TCp54s2

7 blinks? Driver SOS 2 SU / SD / SS Boards (SC floating voltage area). These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link If the blinks continues, and non-stop, the fault should be with its main system control IC, and with the memory IC.

I have a sonyTrinitron KV32HS510 .It will not turn on sounds like it will but then I get a blinking code.Most of the time its 6 blinks .Sometimes its 7 blinks.Is it worth fixing and what should I...

six blinks mean that the tv has a problem in the horizontal circuit.have a tech repair your tv.the problem is in the following component. C 515 AND 516 and IC 206 which is the jungle IC.since you say it also blinks 7 times then there is a high voltage shut down which exceed 33k chech the power supply regulation and of course the horizontal circuits.a cost for this job is around $100.00 Good luck. if you dont want to invest in repair then i advise you buy a new tv.good luck.

15 months into owning our Panasonic TC P46S1 (3 months past warranty), the screen has gone black. The red light on the front flashes 7 times with a pause of 3 sec and then repeats. I have heard horror...

My suggestion is that you get an estimat from a dealer on repair costs and you decide whether you want to spen money on a part or new set. This is a bad circuit board and probably the power supply. The repair will be around $200.00 minimum unless you get lucky and there is no major issues and the board can be repaired.
The service manual says. you have what you call a "shut down circut" it is for safety and when one of the internal boards gets shorted or is not working properly, service doc reads as follows

7 Blinks SOS:
Pin 93 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC, SU, SD board. During normal operation, the photo-coupler PC6480 outputs a low to pin 93. If the SC, SU, or SD board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 93. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 7 times

thiera blinking 7 times is cuase by a fualt in sc,su,sd board.

If the board shorted another before it went dead you could have other issues, thats why you need a tech to look at it and give you an estimate. You never know, this being so close to warranty they might work with you on it.

Philips 42 wont turn on

I am having this same problem. I have "fixed" this problem twice by replacing 2 failed capacitors inside. The fix is pretty easy and the cost of the replacement parts is about $2.50. Unfortunately, the fix doesn't last. The first time, the TV worked again for about 6 months, but the 2nd time, when I replaced with higher grade capacitors, I only got another 2 weeks out of the TV. I think it's time to cut my losses and get a new set. Repair costs were estimated at $600. ...just not worth it.
