Question about RCA Televison & Video

1 Answer

Intermitant flashing red light, where it's usually green when on.

T.V will not turn on manually or with the remote. When I unplugged and then plugged back in it stays green for moments and then flashes red. Any advice?

    Cheers Ginko, I'm going to give that a try. I feel we may have had a power outage this morning, after I left for work. It seemed to be working fine before that. The TV isn't very old, so I was hoping it had to do with our satelite remote, it acts up occasionally. They felt it was a television problem also. I'll get back soon. Thanks.

Hi.

If the TV goes suddenly in standby, and the red light stays on flashing, that means that the main controller board detected a fault condition (eg. a wrong voltage or a short), and turned the TV in standby to prevent further damage to internal component.

In this case is said that the TV goes in protect mode (forced standby).

If you have not turned the TV back on yet, follow the troubleshooting on article below.


My television does not start up

If your TV turns back on, and fail again at random time, it can be a faulty PSU, a faulty digital board. If TV is a CRT, the flyback converter is a common fault.

Regards.

Lost Dynamic Falcon Mini Copter Manual/Instruction. What Does Flashing means while charging and why the green light isn't on?


The flashing red light means the batteries are low. The green light goes off when it's finished charging, or when there's not enough battery left to charge it.

these all relate to the power supply, sometimes when the board is faulty the aux works fine, the red light flashing may only occur when the ipod is connected, but it is all part of the same known problem. contact seller or b and w service, they should fix it.

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean


According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.


Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.



Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:


Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

Solution:
A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service
depot.

LG flat screen wont turn on. Ive tried unplugging from wall


The flashing light indicates the TV is in protection mode. Most likely logic board. Not sure what your model is but its usually the board that has your digital inputs in it ex HdmI etc. Post your model and you should get some one to post more info Ex ( LG XXX has a common problem with tuner board)

The Power Light is Red


yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

Beep 3 times turns green yellow then blinks red then turns to a solid red wont turn on wont give me game


3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in)...you may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.
