Question about Televison & Video
Depending on TV, pilot light flashing indicates a problem in circuit. Get pro/tech help
Posted on Apr 21, 2008
Here's a solution that I received from an TV expert in another website: "This sounds like a power supply problem. i have seen it several time on
your model. i would not keep trying to turn it on it might damage
something else in the tv. the reason it is shutting off is because the
power supply is putting out too much voltage. a repair cost will range
around 300-400. this is a great model and well worth a repair. here is
a web site that might help you in finding a repairman.

If the TV goes off completely, then is usually a faulty power board.
If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.
Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
