It means that you have probably blown a capacitor or 2 in the back of the set. Take the back panel off and look for the round capacitors that have a cross. If any of them are bulging, they are blown. You can order new ones at most electronic parts stores, just get all the readings off it, temp. range and farad readings. They cost less than a buck each. They need to be soldered onto the board.

    What if it's a green light instead of red would that be the same reason? Sometimes it looks as though the screen flickers as well

TV wont come on


Blinking power light indicates fault. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. These are called blinking codes. To know more about these blinking coded, visit the site. It has details about blinking codes to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. If you search the site in Timeslide option, which can be selected from the drop down list at the top left of the display window, it will be easy to locate the related post. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Tv wont turn on, the power indicator nor the remote receiver light does not light up, the 3rd circle on the front of the tv blinks red!! But it wont come on regardless, tv is only 2 years old, what to...


The blinking red light means set is in shutdown because of a short inside the tv.

Someone to begin would have to open it and check power supply voltages inside the set....that is the first step.

Tv wont turn on, just red light blinks


From the owner's manual of that model:
If a red light is blinking on the front of the TV, the set has entered protection mode. If this happens it usually means you simplyneed to reset the TV. Unplug the TV for 60 seconds. Then plug the TV in and try to switch it on. If the light is still blinking red,call the Customer Care Center at 1-800-531-0039

The red "on" light is blinking and the TV


a suggestion: unplug set and try to turn on again; if power light blinks does it blink in a sequence?

3 blinks repeated will mean a problem in the Convergence area.

5 blinks repeated will mean a short on the 140 volt line.

These are the two most common error codes.

Red light blinking on front panel & set wont come on.


The red light is the blink code for your tv. Count the number of blinks and Google your make and model with blink codes added to the end. This will take you to sites that will tell you what the code means.

The red light on my ps3 is blinking and wont stay on


Turn off the ps3. Try reseating the hard drive. Take the cables off and then hook them back up. After this turn the ps3 back on and see if the blinking red light goes away. If it doesn't then try another hard drive in the system. If the blinking light goes away then you know you have a bad hard drive. If the blinking light does not go away then you know either the power supply or main board is bad.

Tv wont turn


The blinking red light at the the front of the television is the "Diagnostic STANDBY/TIMER LED".
This little red light will blink 2, 4, or 5 times and then stay off for three-seconds. And blink again for 2, 4, or 5 times. This cycle repeats. The most common diagnostic code is the 4-blink code.

When the red LED blinks 4-times, it means one of two possible causes:
1) +13V is not supplied on the A-board. Or, 2) IC502 is faulty.

It is best to take this television set to a repair facility and ask that the +13V power supply be repaired.
The copper tracks and integrated circuit pads are very thin and delicate on the KV-24FV12 circuit board, and will easily lift off of the circuit board, if the incorrect desoldering tool is used. Unless one has a good quality PACE vacuum desoldering unit, one should not attempt to repair the television.

IF it's blinking it's probably an error code. If you have the manual see if it says what it means. If not, post the blink sequence here, maybe someone knows what it means.
