    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)

Luxor tv will not power up and red light just keep flashing


I just pull out the mains plug for a few seconds then put it back in. The red light keeps flasing for a while (be patient) then stays solid red. When I then switch on again with the remote it is fine. I often have to do this.

TV quits working, screen goes black and red light next to power green light flashes 4 quick flashes . After a second or two of no flashing,red light repeats "code" flash. We pull the power plug at the TV,...


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

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.

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,
Dan

Dead, led flashing red/green at first, then going to red standby
Replace C604 (1000uF, 16v) elec. cap. It is in the decoupling circuit for the 5 volt supply
Red led blinks on / off, TV does not turn via power button and/or remote but after 20 minutes or so it turns on and works fine
Replace R902, R901, R905, R903, R900A, Q902, and possibly the two (one small and one large) capacitors in the section labeled as the power supply. The board will be black under the components that are bad. Q902 is an NPN transistor and is hard to find.
