Press power botton power light flashes a few times then nothing
replaced the red PCB and converg board with NEW parts, TV turned on for a min, long enough for me to start the perfect focus deal. went to 4% and got stuck, so i turned off the TV . turned it back on and now the light flashes but nothing happens. when you normally turn on the set it clicks,, well theres no click now and no little tones from the speakers , but you can hear something actually charge (for lack of the actual term) then nothing , if you unplug it and hit the power button it goes BEWWET.. then its silent once again. i was really hoping to just replace the STK board and red PCB that caused all the problems to start with, and was pleased that it didnt explode when i was done installing the new parts , but now i need help with this new issue.

Re: will not turn on
Check the convergance board for open pico fuses located near the stk amps if they are open the you may have a yolk problem as well. also check the blue gum for cloudy fluid this may be the reason the perfect focus got stuck. if you should get the tv to fire up go to the menu then select reset factory in the convergance menu of the customer menu. this will pull the convegance back to tollorance. the trouble is that when the convegance amps fail customers tend to perfect focus the set and each time they do the convegance memory goes further from tollorance. thus failing the ICs once again. check the pico fuses 1st this is a tell tail sign of those two conditions (yolk, or out of tollorance).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi,It's overheating. Clean out the vents with vaccuum cleaner. If symptoms persist, call Sony. Alot of people think they know the answer to things they know nothing about.....2 units getting the ylod does not mean someone should trust you more...lol I own a console repair shop and have fixed over 150 PS3 units. your unit displaying the flashing red light is telling your there has been a malfunction. some people turn their systems back on to realize they have the ylod and the unit quickly turns on then off displaying the green and red lights at the same time, giving us our yellow light. I have come across a few consoles with the exact problem you refer too. Your system is shuttting down due to a blu-ray drive failure(most likely a problem with the pcb on the bluray drive.) I was able to fix the issue by replacing the pcb, the trick is finding a compatible pcb. you have to match up the revisions. Parts may be hard to come across, these pcb boards are very rarely listed online. So miy suggestion to you, is to find a console repair shop around your area, and see if they may have the part you need, otherwise sell your unit for parts. With blu-ray lasers being expensive, you can still easily get 80-100 for the unit.
Ur power board have dead capacitors.U Know how to solders?Take the tv aparts,check these capacitors in the power board for dead capcitors like puff up or burst open.Replaced these capacitors to get power back.Or buy and replaced the whole reburbish power board at Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com.
Have you replaced any of the resistors? RK42 3.3ohms /RK46 1.8 RK50 2.7 / RK54 1.5 / RK58 3.9 / RK62 2.2 ,ALSO remove front cover on TV looking at front of chassis is a button on board that has ICs/ press and hold for 3 secs with TV on ,then up should be convergence Pattern for alinement.
check the resistors near the stk's. There are some reports that they get fried when the stk's fry....or the other way around. The resistor ratings are labeled on the resistors. 2.2, 82, 180 or something like that. Also check the board as you turn on the tv. See if any glow red.
wont turn on red light just flashes? On my samsung flat screen tv when you are watching the televison there is no red light on the power button but when you turn the television off the red light stays on all the time? what can I do to turn this light off?
replace the convergence board. you can get it from VanceBaldwin.com. The part number is BP95-00142E. Easy install. You can test this TV before you buy the part.
If you take off the lower back of the TV, you'll see the board mounted near the middle of the TV on the right. On mine the power connector is red. Unplug that connector, replug in the TV and turn it on. It should come on, but the picture will be a mess as the tubes won't converge (obviously).
Plug in the new board, and keep right on going... $78 delivered. Took three days.
same problem , goes in to safety mode to prevent any more damage to the set. tech was able to get a picture colours all over the place replaced conversion parts on board went fine for 2 weeks then the same would not turn on , came on by its self colours all over the place smelt burning . back to square one.
Tech arrives again today doesn't look good this a $8500 tv
4 years ago and i'll have to pay the tip fee.
Samsung 165cm rear projection tv.good luck
I had the same problem with the 47" version. I called the Sears technician who tried for more than an hour to fix the problem, even calling Panasonic. Final solution: a board repair for $550. Now I have a plasma and a big desk.
I had the same red blinking led problem on my Toshiba Theaterview tv. I resolved by: - Unplugging the tv. - Press several times (3 or 4 times) the tv Power button. - Plug the tv back in and press the Power button once to turn the tv on....tv worked!!!
I've had the problem before and tried unplugging the tv for a couple of days and that had also worked, but I this recent solution seems to be faster. Good luck! Erick
