    SAME THING, WON'T COME ON. RED LIGHT FLASHING....

  • kfelder13 Aug 18, 2008

    same **** happened to mine. It started off when i turned it on it had a high pitched sound and i could hear the tv but no picture. I had to turn it on and off a few times for the backlights to stay lit. then it came to the point when i had to keep the tv on with no back lights for it to "warm up" and then turn it on and off again for the picture to show. then it just stopped coming on. when i finally got it on i didnt turn it off (2.5 days) and then i woke up this morning and it was no picture again, turned it off and now its off for good! did anyone get any answers from the manufacuter since target wont take it back?

No power and a blinking red light indicates that the capacitors have blown. Trutech LCD's are known to have this problem. A local TV repair man should be abel to repair this problem, But it's not cheap. Repairs could cost as high as $180. Sorry to say you might be better off purchasing a new LCD.

I called the manufacturer and they said I could send it back to be repaired or replaced. It costs $45 if its after 120 days on the receipt (they extended it another 30 days) or no cost if within the 90 (120) day period. He said there is a 1 yr warrenty on the fixed or replaced on as well. Here's the phone number 1-888-252-6252! I hope this helps someone!

(I got this number after calling target's manufacturer hotline that they give u in the store when they tell you they wont take it back)

The Sony diagnostic routine for 4 blinks indicates it to be a vertical deflection problem.

Did you see a solid horizontal line in the center of the screen prior to it going out? If so, that is a tell tale sign for vertical problems.

basic sony reset below

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center

LN55C750R2FXZA Samsung LCD


What your describing is symptoms of a power surge, Many LCD Tv's are sensative to Slight fluctuation in power during rain, thunder and lightning storms, i myself was happily watching Tv through such a storm at one time, and when i went to bed the TV would not respond remotely or manually, i also disconnected the power from the wall waited for the ready light to disolve and try to turn on, unfortunatley the damage was done, a Tv Repair was nessecary and since then i now use a belkin power surge protector board for my TV and appliances......one question to you is i would guarantee you do not use a surge protection my friend......and your set will need a Tv Repair, it is not major as what is neccesary is a firmware dump on the internal memory and replace the BIOS Battery as well.

I was watching my tv when my son hit the reset button on my surge protector..now my tv will not turn on. Any ideas?


Turn everything off, the tv the power and make sure the button is not active at the moment. Some surge protectors do come with a fuse but when you turn the surge protector back on itself make sure it is recieving power, there is usually a red light on the switch while recieving power. Then try again once you know there is power to it.

After a momentary power outage Panasonic LCD TV has a flashing red light and will not turn on.


Try using a different outlet, the outlet or the tv may have been damaged in the surge. In the case of the tv contact the manufacturer and see if it's still under warranty. There may also be a way to 'reset' the tv by holding the power button down, try looking in the manual or calling customer support. In the future use a surge protector, many of today's electronics are still sensitive to power surges, older tv's were more resilliant than today's in this regard.
