LG LCD TV Standby/Power light keeps blinking red

I have an LG LCD TV (model number 26LXD). Now when the unit is off (or standby) the led on the front of the tv is a steady red. On power up it flashes green and then stays green. I just came home from a short vacation to find the led flashing red (non stop) and I cannot power up the unit. I tried unplugging it and let it set for a few minutes, nothing. I tried a different plug, wall socket to no avail. Now there was a fan running constantly in the unit even after power down (had been doing that for some 8 months) now that fan is not running. Anyway, could it be that, that fan burned out and has caused the unit to not power up? Or is it something else? and what does the flashing red light mean? Thanks for any and all help.

Could be your Ballast Board that fires up lamp or Fan is bad that cools Lamp there is also a Fan mounted up under Light Engine if it stops running set will not come on. CK Fan Behind lamp first if it is OK then replace Ballast Go to E-Bay for Best Deal on that part .

SOURCE: LG LCD TV Standby Light Flashing Red Continuously

I have had this same problem twice in the past 3 months. So far both times I've been able to get it back after a week or two. I'm not sure what works, but unplugging and detaching the antenna and cable and waiting a few days seems to be the key. In both instances, I unplugged it for a few days then plugged it in for a few days and repeated the processes until I eventually got the steady red led. Both times prior to the red led the led would flash red then green and make a clickiing noise for several hours before I was able to get it working again.

SOURCE: light bulb flashes 3 times, TV won't turn on

well i know what the problem is... if your getting the white scroll and then the red light flashes but the fans are comming on and you got a new bulb the broblem is the ballast. i know cuz i had the same problem and a good friend of mine has a tv shop and i had him look at it but the good news is that its not that hard to change. if you try to go through LG thay wont be able to sell you the ballast if your just a coust. good news is that you can fined the ballast on ebay from s.gifeasywaylamps its about $130.00 bucks shiped. bud news about is that thay are from china(it is where i got mine) but it works great and hasent gave me a broblem yet. if any one eles has the same problem and it was something eles.... PLEASE POST IT. i hope my info has been helpful to someone.... thanks Brad Ross of East Moline Illinois

SOURCE: tv wont turnon afterstandby

LG will sell you a new lamp. It may resolve the problem but just as likely it's the contacts where the lamp unit plugs to the TV. There's a few types of connectors. The early ones are dodgy and cause the problem you describe. A faulty lamp can also cause it though.

I have a Samsung TV model UN46F6300AFXZA 2 YRS OLD now with no pic or sound. The only visible thing is the blinking red LED (standby light) Any Suggestions?


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.

Have a LG 55ls5700 tv that doesn't turn on but the red standby comes on and when i press the power button it starts to blink


Does the screen quickly blink on and then off? Does the standby light slowly blink twice and then go out?If these are the symptoms then it is probably a bad led backlight strip.This was the fault with my lg 47ln540v led lcd tv.I have written this up in a previous post more comprehensively.Hope this helps..

Normally continious flashes of standby LED indicates a main board failure. Anyway, count the number of blinks as stated above, and make sure about the fault. Contact any service technician.

I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 that has no picture. When I turn on the TV, the green Power/Standby LED light blinks for about 30 seconds, then turns red and blinks five times. The Power/Standby LED repeats...


  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen A2 slightly.
