The 5 blink code indicates a loss of video. This could be as simple as bad connections on the main board or a couple of defective transistors. In many cases the parts cost is $5-$25. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

I have a Sylvania TV with dvd/vhs attached and do not have the remote. I can't get the tv on channel 3 to watch cable. I have tried numerous universal remotes but none of them have worked. Please tell me...


Here is a process to program a Vizio Universal remote. I saved this info to my computer as a text file some time ago. Can't remember where from, so if it works, no credit to me. :-)

Sylvania:10054, 10030, 10171, 11944, 11931

1. Manually turn on the TV.

2. Press and release the TV button.

3. Press and hold the SET button until the LED blinks 2X.

4. Enter your Codes

If the LED does not flash twice, repeat Steps 2 through 4 with the next code listed.

5. Point the remote control at the TV and press the POWER button. The TV will turn off.

TV turns itself off, then on automaticlly


The fan should run for a few minutes after shut off to cool the lamp down.

If I read and understand correctly somewhere in the cycle you are getting 5 red blinks? that is an error code........

Either you or I can Google the model number of the set with 5 blinks.....or visit the Sony site to see what it means.....

When I turn on the tv all i get is the welcome screen, and it will not go any futher,there is green light flashing in front of the tv. and it will not turn off with the remote, i have to unplug it.


Hi Andre,

May I know if the LED light at the front panel has a pattern of flashes or flashing continuously in green color.

Please check if you can access the "Self diagnostic screen" by following the steps below.
- To activate, press the front panel "Activity" and "Channel down" buttons at the same time and hold for 5 secs. The Status led will then flash a two digit code. Example, if the error code is "23" the led light flashes 2 times(blink, blink) pause and then flash 3 times(blink, blink, blink). Let me know the error code to narrow down, it will help to diagnose where the fault came from.
Note : the TV must be in shutdown not switched off, or AC power cord is removed because the code will reset to "12" means no error. Use the front panel buttons not on the remote control. If you can't access the self diagnostic, press and hold the "Activity" button on the front panel for 5 secs before entering the "self diagnostic" code.
Regards,

I have the radion shack hdtv remote. Cat no


Download the manual and codes from here

http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/files/dl.cgi?file=others/radio_shack/15135-manual.zip&area=other

Here is how to set the code...

1. Turn TV on
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Hold P button on remote until LED blinks twice
4. Enter the first 5 digit code for Magnavox TV's
5. Press Power button - TV should turn off. If TV doesn't turn off repeat steps 2-5 with the next 5 digit code, until either TV goes off or run out of codes.
6. If out of codes use searching for code method below...

TV codes for Magnavox

10047, 11454, 10054, 10154, 10000, 10250, 10051, 10180, 10060, 10030, 10171, 10092, 10706, 11913, 11904, 11755, 10019, 11365, 11254, 10802, 10386, 10282, 10020, 10187, 10186, 10024, 10179, 10096

Searching for code

1. Turn on TV.
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Press and hold P button until LED blinks twice
4. Enter code 991 on remote - LED blinks twice
5. Press 1 - Device key blinks twice
6. Press Power button once
7. Press and release CH+ key until TV turns off.

At this point in the manual, the manual is only correct depending on what type of TV you have.

In the manual if you press the Power on button the TV should turn itself back on, the fail to state that not all TV's turn on by the power button, the majority now are triggered to turn on, on channel change, however you can't use channel change here to check it as you'll go to the next code... here is my solution...

8. Turn TV back on either using original TV remote, or buttons on front (most TV's if you change channels they come back out of standby mode, very few now turn on by pressing the power button).

9. Press Power button on remote - TV should turn itself off again.
10. Press P button on remote to lock in that code.

If the device does not turn off press CH- to go back through the codes, press and release P button when TV turns off.

Finding code

If you used the search function you might want to know what code it's using. To do this follow these instructions...

1. Press TV button
2. Press and hold P until LED blinks twice
3. Enter 990 and LED blinks twice
4. Press 1 and count number of times LED blinks this is the first digit of your code (e.g. 1 blink = 1, 2 blinks = 2, etc).
5. Repeat step 4 pressing buttons 2 - 5 for the other digits (e.g. for the second digit press 2 count number of blinks.. etc)

At this point the manual doesn't tell you how to get out of this mode, I presume pressing any other button on the remote other than 1-5 will take you out of this mode, either that or leaving the remote alone for 5 minutes.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525. This morning my TV would not turn on so I pressed the rest button. After the Timer light stopped blinking I pressed power. I could hear the fans start than a somewhat loud...


the status light blinking red means a fan (the unit hs 4 of them) has failed. you need to determine which one. use the self diagnostic function:
Error Code Operational Check
Note:
The TV must be in “Shut Down” and not manually switched Off, to perform the Error Code Operational
Check. When the TV is switched Off, the code automatically resets to “12” No Error.
Press the front panel “DEVICE” and “MENU” buttons at the same time, and hold for 5 seconds to
activate the Error Code Operational Check. The LED will then flash denoting a two digit Code.
Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.
• The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
Example: If the Error Code is “32”, the LED will flash three times, pause, and then flash two times.
• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.


and read the code.
35= Chassis Fan failure
36 =Exhaust (Back Cover) or Lamp Ballast Fan failure
37= Engine (DMD or Lamp) Fan failure

Enter codes for remote R55L8-RCR4358


There are 4 ways to program your remote:
-Brand Code search and entry
-Direct code entry
-Manual Code search and entry
-Auto Code search and entry
*ON TV/VCR(DVD) combos you must program each button individually and that button(ie. TV or VCR/DVD) will program that part of your device.
*the DVD/VCR button programs DVD by default, in order to program it for VCR you must put it into VCR mode:
1.hold down the DVD-VCR button-->the red led will stay lit.
2.while holding down the DVD-VCR button press the number 2 --> the red led will turn off
3.Release the DVD-VCR button--> the red led blinks 4 times and turns off
4.The DVD-VCR button is now set to VCR mode-->program for VCR

BRAND CODE SEARCH ENTRY:
1. turn on device
2. locate brand codes(sorry, I don't have it, try finding genaric RCA codes)
3. hold down the component button--> led should stay on
4. while holding component button, also hold power button--> the led will turn off, then after 3 seconds it will turn back on.
5. release both buttons--> led will stay on
6. enter brand code--> led blinks once
7. press power button repeatedly until component turns off-->each time you press the power key the remote sends a different code for that brand. led blinks once
8. if power on your device turns off press the stop button to save configuration-> led turns off
9. if the led blinks 4 times and turns off, you have reached the end of the codes for that brand, try using a different method to program your device.

DIRECT CODE ENTRY:
1. turn on the device
2. locate your device codes
3. hold component key down-->led lights up and stays lit
4. enter code while holding components key--> as first key is pressed the led turn off, then as 4th digit of key is pressed the led turns back on
5. release component key-->led turns off, try using your remote, if it doesn't have all of the functions you need, try a different code
6. if the led blinks 4 times after entering code you have entered an invalid code, try again.

MANUAL SEARCH AND ENTRY:
1. turn on device
2. hold the component button--> led lights up and stays lit
3. while holding component button hold power button-> led turns off then turns back on after 3 seconds
4. release both buttons--> led stays lit
5. push the power button a bunch of times until the device shuts off-> each time the power button is pressed a different code is sent to the device, the led blinks each time.
6. if the device turns off press the stop button to save your config.
7. if the led blinks 4 times you have reached the end of the code list, there are hundreds of codes, you may be pressing the power button for a while...

AUTO CODE SEARCH AND ENTRY:
1. repeat steps 1-4 of "manual search and entry"
2. press the "play" button--> led blinks 10 times, sending a code each time
3. continue pressing the play button until the device turns off
4. if the device turns off press the reverse key to until it turns back on then press the stop key to save config.
5. if the led blinks 4 times you have run out of codes, try a different method.
Now if someone would please post the codes, or if someone knows the code for a durabrand DVD-1002...

Doesn't turn on, but LED blinks 5 times


The flashing light is an indication of the sweep falure. Most of the time it is in the sweep output section, like the flyback transformer and or the horizontal output transistor. Most of the time it is the flyback that causes all the problems and componet blowouts in these sony TV sets, but it is also sometimes the vertical output IC that shorts out the sweep power supply. In any case a solid state set is no where to be experimenting around with and should only be worked on by a trained service tech. Good Luck
