TV picture won't stop blinking

This tv is about 12 yeas old. It started to take a long time to turn on one day and began to blink periodically. It continually got worse and now it takes at least an hour to turn on and blinks every second. The sound is perfectly fine. What's wrong with it and Is it worth the repair cost or part replacement? Thanks.

Sounds like a bad solder joint or leaky capacitor. What make and model set do you have.

    I would check for bad solder around the Flyback, Horizontal drive transformer as well as the vertcle IC , and horizontal and verticle yoke plugs. The TV is definatly worth repairing. If the solder looks good I would suspect some faulty capacitors.

My Sony Trintron's LED Light blinks 9 times when I try to turn on the set


  1. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negative). If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes to Sony brand TVs, check this link. Pull up older posts there.

My Mitsubishi Medallion tv stays on for about 10 minutes and then shuts down and won't turn back on until a period of time has passed. It is a rear projection tv about 9 years old. Can anyone help ex


When it shuts off and the green power light goes off, press both the menu and input buttons on the front of the set (not the remote) and hold both for about five seconds and release.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks and then 3 blinks and repeat it several times.

What is the error code?

Tv is blinking on and off


I think you have a bad capacitor in the power supply circuit. You need to have a certified technician look at it though. Get someone who is familiar with mitsu's though. Have a great day. Jay

Our big screen sony tv stopped working yesterday. The power on light is blinking red intermittently and when you push it, it doesn't turn on-no sound or picture. It will stop blinking red periodically, but...


Please try disconnecting all the cables from the TV including the power cables then reconnect them back after a few minutes. You may also try connecting the power cord from the TV directly to a functional wall outlet. If the issue persists then service will be required.

20" Trinitron Wega


Good day.
First, Have your tv 's circuitry be resoldered. this might be a case of loose contacts particularly along the crt circuitry. the longer you operate the unit at this condition, the faster you are counting the possibility of shortening the lifespan of your tube. 9 years is quite a young age for a unit which has an average of 18years.


response is highly appreciated.

Power light blinks


I found a solution, Heat. When the set is on and heats up it stays on, but once off for the night it gets cold and can't start, try using a hair dryer on full blast and put the heat around the back top vent like structure and wait for the light to stop blinking, this only takes about 2 min or so
