LG LCD TV Standby Light Flashing Red Continuously

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.

    That's what it is doing now. I opened up the unit, pulled the fan and it is working properly. Now I have plugged it back in, the led would flash once, the green led would come on, there is some clicking noise and then the red led is back, and repeating the same process. Will give what you said a try and see if it resets itself or not.

    This is hardly a permanent solution, but I have a similar issue with my 42LG55. When the red light flashes on, I'm able to power up the unit using the power button when the red light flashes on, but any other time it doesn't power on.

    Furthermore, if you're trying to use the remote, the power button doesn't seem to work, but mashing the Input button on the remote will power it on -- again, only when the light flashes on.

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.

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..

Lg LCD TV power up issue


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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.
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.

Hi! I have a 32" LCD led backlit bush tv (not sure


Yes, all the issues point to a problem in the standby power supply which runs 7/24 if the set is plugged into wall power--get it taken care of under warranty before it really fails bad.

LG 17LX1R flashing red LED - TV won't power up


Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Tv went off while watching a program power standby red light blinks 6 times then pauses then repeats tried unplugging unit waiting a few minutes then replugged same results nothing. can anyone help me ?...


Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/webtree.pl?template=EN&mdl=KDF55XS955&content_id=68&category_id=11&problem_id=52

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
