Power Button Blinks 3 times and then nothing happens

On of the parts on the blue light board had a shock due to the screen leaking, i manage to find a tech gut who can seal the tube, but the problem now is that he is telling me that i have to replace the chip board (where the DVI Chip is and where you connect the signal cables). Does this make sense?, the sympthom is that the power light blinks 3 times and nothing hapens, he says the flyback transformer is working cus he can check the pulse on the chip and it gets ok, but the chip is not sending any pulse outside.
Is this a flyback transformer problem?
Or is he lying so i can buy the board?

    Hi, thanks for your help, the blinks are like this

    I Push the power button and then...

    BLINK, 1 second pause, BLINK, 1 second pause, BLINK, and then nothing, the light is off and does not come back.

    I have to wait like 30 seconds to push the power button again so it can give me the same thing.

    Thanks for your help.

    P.S. is there any web site where i can find the error codes blinks?

    ok, that is not a error code. error codes repeat over and over. without being in the set I can't tell you if you need the SSB board or not. if you had fluid damage from the crt's it may be shorting some other place of the system. more than likely the large signal board is to blame. Horz. pulses can still be present and the flyback or the Horz output transistor could be at fault. then again any short can cause this no start condition. the coolant can short the crt board and get in the crt socket so remove it and clean it. clean the plastic pin hoder on the crt, becareful not to bend the pins (donot try to remove the plastic from the crt damage to the crt can happen).

If the coolant spilled on a circuit board, there are changes that the board might be damage as this liquid is highly corrosive and also can conducts electricity while on the board.

New to this site! Hope someone has an answer that can help... I have a LG 55 LCD flat screen model 55LD520-UA. Try to turn it on. Bottom light blinks red 3 times blinks blue once, then nothing.

Try to change the capacitors first. Normally lost of lcd tv have problems with the capacitors and which lead to powers problems. May you will not find visually that the capacitor is fault. So go for changing the capacitor also check the following video. Which will help you understand how to check the power supply broad. Also take care while working with the power board there is a risk or electric shock Also one of the capacitor in the power supply holds charge even when you have remove the power supply.

Won't power on

You still have power supply trouble, even after replacement of the board. Recheck the replacement work; could be something wrong there

RCA TV RCA D61W20, Light Blinks 3 Times

Usually when the crt leaks onto the chassis it can be cleaned and the affected components only have to be replaced I am not sure what "chip" you are refering too, but most ICs can be purchased as a replacement part. usually the entire board wont need replacing unless the traces are destroyed or replacement parts are unavailable.
