The flashing may indicate a failed power supply. Or a bad backlight tube.

Only 3 months old? Any warranty?

Considering its age I would say a defective part or poor assembly is to blame.

Our tv is about 3 years old. We are a Time Warner cable customer. About 2 months ago we started to notice that the picture took a ong time to appear after turning on the set. The sound played for about...


I'm sure this is fairly easy to repair. It sounds likely to be a power supply problem, possibly due to bad capacitors. Your original symptoms of no picture were likely to be the backlight controller not having sufficient power to operate correctly. Ideally you should have it looked at and repaired then because leaving it to get worse may well have caused additional component failure. Get it checked by a reputable TV repair engineer.

I have a 56" model that I have had a similar problem. My bulb burned out in <90 days. Warranty was 90 days on the bulb itself. When the TV picture goes out, the indicator LEDS blink on and off.

Here is what you have to determine:

1) First cover the left LED with a piece of paper so that you can't see it blinking. I don't know if your layout is the same as my TV. You may have to switch the paper blocking the LED.

2) Pay attention to the other LED and READ its' flashing code. In my case, the code was 2-3. It would flash 2 times, pause briefly, then flash 3 times. This meant code 23. That indicated the bulb was burned out.

3) If you look in the manual, It does have a code list of some sorts to tell you of the codes and their meanings. Hope this helps.

Degrading picture with my Dwin projector


the colorwheel is going bad and needs replacing. the colorwheel needs to spin fast enough to sync up with the dmd chip. if it cannot, the pic goes bad then off. the flashing is the colorwheel trying to catch up.

No picture no sound


If its only a few months old , get the bill of sale and go to the authorized repair shop. If no warrantee then your gonna have to take it it anyway, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this tv as its solid state and all the parts are soldered in. Your problem could be a cold solder connection on the horizontal drive transformer, or a bad horizontal output transistor along with the HI-Voltage transformer. Like I said If you have no experience with tv sets, this repair should be handled by a pro. Good Luck
