There is an error code that flashes on front of TV. which is in this case an error 7 which is power related. Also there is a gree LED on the power supply that will flash an error code also. If u look on the power supply U will see a list of numbers 1-13 which list the error codes and what they mean.Usually if it flashes 1-9 its usually cheaper to just buy another TV. because the Power supply , Y-main, X-main will probably run $300 plus core charge.

I have a Sony kdl-46es700 flap screen LCD TV; The picture is black, red indicator light blinks 7 times every three seconds. Have already replace the power board. How do I resolve this problem?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

When i turn on the tv the led flashes 4 times and tv takes 4 minutes to come on and when it comes on the led flashes 5 times


Hi,
Flashes of your led light indicates an error code. This is usually caused by leaky filter electrolytic capacitor. This will affect the regulation of the supply and sometimes needs a little warm-up to function normally. This faulty capacitor is in the regulator section/low voltage power supply. The symptom will get worst if not isolated.
This is not DIY. I've advice you to send it to repair shop or look for a qualified technician to fix the problem.
Hope it may help you!

Have a nice day.

Philips 42PF7220A/37 42'' TV (LED flashes red 7 times)


Five buck solution; If you have any tek skills at all and are feeling adventurous; UNPLUG THE POWER, remove the back panel; You will be faced with the mainboard. In the lower right quadrant you will see two small capacitors, like tiny yellowish coke cans. If these are bulging, there lies your problem. These must be replaced. If you have no soldering skills, take only the mainboard to a fixit shop and have them solder in the two capacitors easily found on line. No guarantee's but worth a try
