I bought one of these tv's at a thrift store and it had the same problem, orange light blinking and static sound coming out of the speakers, no video at all.
The problem was the power supply board, this power supply has multiple outputs that feed the circuitry, 12V, 24v, 5V.
There was nine electrolitic capacitors I had to replace to fix it, all of them were bulged they are easy to spot, I measure one of them that was supposed to measure 1000uF but measured only 65uF. you can buy these from digikey for about 50 cents each, they need to be rated at 105 deg c and the profile has to be below the heat sink otherwise they will hit the top of the heat sink, the spacing between the leads has to be 5mm so they fit in the pcb. I replaced 3 1000uF/25v, 3 470uF/16v and 3 1000uF/16v and that fixed the problem, I bought this tv broken for 100 bucks fixed it with 6 bucks.
Good luck, don't perform repair if you are not familiar with dangerous AC voltage inside the TV.

We own a small TV repair shop in Ohio and have ran into similar problems with this TV.
To fix this problem we replaced 3 caps near and in the powersuppy of the TV.
This TV is very sensitive to electrical problems ( more then most if that's possible) so check the caps near the PSU.
Over all this TV is a fairly decent product.

The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to email@example.com

the problem is in the power supply(they know about it good luck fighting them)but there is good news.you can remove the power supply and replace electrolytic caps,EC18,EC19,EC20 all of them are 1000mf at16 volt use 1000mf at25 volt.you can also go to shopjimmy.com enter model number you will see power supply part number MLT169B
it will be cheaper for you to replace the caps,the board cost about $80.00 from them

Testimonial: "Dale Hunter's response was completely accurate. I replaced the three capacitors that he identified. And it has been working fine since 2009. Now I have the black screen problem. Help me Dale."
