The problem usually is from low quality or defective "capacitors" on the main circuit board. There are two capacitors in particular on the main board that causes problems with these tv's. You can check for swelled up capacitors or burn marks on the circuit board. You can also purchase an analog tester or ohmmeter and test the capacitors.
If for some reason these caps test to be ok, then test the power inverter.

The TV will not turn on. When the switch at the lower left corner is pressed the light in the switch flashs green for about 4 seconds as the TV seems to go through a start up procedure. Then the light...


The red flashing light is the service code. My guess is the power supply is bad now, but it could be something else. If the TV is under warranty, take it in and get if fixed. If it is not, then you may try to check the power supply first. Count the flashes of the red light and check online for the issues when this model flashes, 4 times or 6 times... or 9 times, etc.

Good luck!

Tv comes on, green light flashes several times, get the "digital television" shown at botton left corner, then flashing green light stops, tv turns off and red constant "stand by" light comes back on. TV...


common problem with that model is the backlight inverter, 1 or more of the six transformers may be bad.also check for bad capacitors.the tedious way to check is unplug each and plug in each one at a time but unplug the power from the tv each time you check one or you will get a nice jolt. the one that doesnt light the lamp is bad.or take each transformer off and check the primary and secondary coils if you find one open coil. the transformers cost between $8 and $20 each.it has a substitute part.
