My TV will not turn on. It has a flashing red light on the small display


Is the power button just flashing, is this what you mean by 'smal display'? Try troubleshooting with the instruction manual. Check the aerial/antenna is properly connected and functioning etc. If no joy just return it to the retailer for service of your warranty.

Hitachi p50h401 the power light keeps flashing


If you have a flashing red light, try this first: The flashing red light is, according to the Hitachi service manual, an indication of exactly one problem. It is that the fan (internal, blows air over the power supply heat sinks) has failed. In my case, it failed by continuing to spin (very confusing), but put out a signal (3V on the white wire of the fan harness) that it has failed (I had to look up the data sheet on the fan to figure this out). A new fan from Arrow $10 fixed the problem. If you suspect your fan, spinning or not, you can safely short the white to the black wire to see if your TV remains on after being turned on (solid red light), and then try turning your TV on (blue light) to see if it works.

Our Samsung TV model HLT6187SAX\XAA is displaying a message on screen "Check fan # 2" Red and green lights on the lower right front are flashing. What does this mean?


There is a bad fan in your T.V. You would have to open it, see which fan isn't spinning, get the part number for the fan, order it and replace it.

The fan dont turn on when i turn on the tv and the red light is flashing


Hi,
Red light flashing on tv indicates that tv got some problem and shifted to protection mode to avoid further damage.
If Lamp light is flashing on tv then check lamp that would be dead or broke, replace lamp to solve tv problem.
If standby red light is flashing on tv then let me know how many times it is flashing after 3 seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.
