Won't turn on. Constant blinking green light!

Hello! We just bought this TV from a friend. When we first bought it, as soon as we plug it in, the green indicator light in the front would constantly blink. The instruction booklet said it would do this after "shutting down" but it went on for over 6 hours! After waiting it finally stopped and we were able to use the TV for 2 weeks.

It was working fine but after two weeks it did it again. We didn't unplug it or anything but it now wont turn on and the constant blinking green light is back. I pressed the reset button but now its over 3 hours and no change.

Any idea why its doing this and what I can do before having to hire a tech who may rip me off?

Re: Won't turn on. Constant blinking green light!

There are 4 1000uf capacitors on the DM board that prevent your set from completeing the boot sequence. replace these with the Radio Shack eqivalents and your problem should be resolved. The 4 capacitors are located right next to each other in a group. Hope this helps.

Won't turn on

id be calling the friend asking for a refund...what you have going on is pretty common but did you see it work prior to buying it or just take their word for it? you may have a bad flyback or transformer but it shouldnt be bad so soon after you happened to buy the tv and no it would not have gone bad from moving the tv

The constant blinking green light means that the TV is not booting up. This is a common problem on this set.You need to remove the shield from the DM board (standing upright on the left where the DTV RF connector is)and inside you will see the four leaky capacitors (1000 MFD 16 VOLT)replace them,plug the TV in and wait 70 seconds for the blinking light to stop,then turn on the TV.The hard part will be removing the board from the TV(lots of screws and connectors,takes time)
