3 blinks is short protection and 98% chance one of the resistors in the convergence circuit is gone.

I can tell you what to look for and if confirmed how to fix set. If the usual problem total parts cost on EBAY will be well under 25 dollars.

If one of the resistors is bad, I have step by step start to finish instructions I can provide for this repair, for most it is a do it yourself job.

If you have questions let me know.

    Thank you for your help. What are the parts I would need and how much of a hassle is it to fix this issue? Also, I have read some other posts and they said when they changes the convergence parts they still had issues. I am just wondering if the hassle is going to be worth it.

    Let me make this simple.

    With set unplugged and back off locate the two chips (I will attach photo) and in front of them are a number of light blue resistors. A visual look will tell if any are bad, they will be white in the middle or discolored. Follow me?

    The repair consists of getting at them, there is right and wrong way to do this if you have minimal skills and can take instructions you can fix it yourself.

    Confirm first if discolored resistors. Repair is going to take you about one hour and I know best place to get the parts. If want give me email and we exchange information.

    THE TWO CHIPS IN YOUR SET WILL LOOK LIKE THIS BUT HAVE stk-392-110 NUMBER ON FRONT.

    SIDE BY SIDE ON METAL PLATES WITH FINS. THE RESISTORS WILL BE IN FRONT AND AROUND THEM AND MOST WILL HAVE 2.2 PRINTED ON THEM (2.2 OHMS)

  • skoppes9osu Nov 03, 2010

    Ok, I see the resisters. I'm not sure how to tell if they're bad or not. They all look identical and are a white-ish color.

    listen carefully, they are light blue in color, powder blue----a bad one will be discolored in the middle, white in middle.

  • skoppes9osu Nov 03, 2010

    I think I found the one's that are bad. Would they be hot to touch after trying to turn the TV on? If so, I found two that are bad. Also, I found a convergence repair kit at www.tvrepairworld.com for $55. Is this what I want?

    forget the kit, it is a ripoff.


    On ebay you can get the two chips and resistors for well under 20 dollars.

    I make suggestion, provide me a email and I send the instructions to you for free, you read and decide if you can do. I not allowed give my email here but nothing to stop you.

    Those kits contain parts you will never need, a waste of money.

When the tv plugged up the power led blinks 3 times. When the power button is pressed the tv comes on for three seconds and turns back off. What could be the problem? Could this be a convergence problem?


Do the self check when power light goes out:

ON front of set (not remote) press and hold both the Menu and Input (Device) buttons at same time for 5 seconds or longer and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know code.

Power light keeps blinking Red and TV will not turn on


Is the light blinking constantly or is there a long pause then more blinking. If constant check the lamp door switch . Usually it is broken or jammed. If you jumper it and the set comes on that it. 4 blinks is bad fan.
