Most of the time this problem is caused by the power supply in the set. Capacitors on the circuit board wear out. Usually the ones rated at 10 or 16 volts. You can see a physical bulge of the defective components in most cases. The way to repair this is to either replace the bad parts or the circuit board itself. If you take this to a repair shop the cost should be less than half the cost of a replacement tv or 125-295 u.s. dollars. If you have test equipment and solder/desoldering equipment you can repair it for 20 dollars or less. The only way to be sure that this is the problem is to have someone disassemble the set and check it. But this has been only a very educated guess. Good luck, Russmann.

When you turn the tv on the red light on the front(stand by/timer)flashes and the tv starts to come on and then it turns off.


Do you mean the screen turns on briefly or the stand by light just keeps blinking. If the tv turns off after switching on then it probably means a protection circuit fault. Also please provide me the number of times it blinks before it pauses. Awaiting your resposnse.

Sai.

KDF-60XBR950 Red light blinks 5 times


Those 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.

hi the blinking or flashing of stand by light indicator that means their is a error detected by processor which result to switch on/off the tv unit. now since you can not determined the error blinking light.what you need is to open the back cover then first look at the power supply if their is bulged capacitor which cause low voltage the tendency turn on/off the unit.replace with same rating much better to use panasonic brand capacitor you can found at www.digikey.com. now if the problem is not with in power supply try to disconnect the inverter board which supply the back light their might be a shorted transistor or the back light itself has problem which cause auto matic shut down. good luck hope it will help you.

Hisense TL2020 - Won't come on.


Lay unit flat on table, remove stand and rear cover. When you remove back, you will see a power supply board in the middle of the set.There are (3)1000mfd @25 volt electroltics and (1)220mfd @16 volt electrltyic that have to be replaced to return to normal operation. This is not something to try if you are a novice as you must observe polarity when installing these caps. But this repair WILL return set to normal operation.
