Sorry to hear about your problem.

The problem you have described is going to require a costly repair. You are having problems with the "brains" of the television. I recommend replacing this television fixing this television will be cost-prohibitive.

Also be sure that you have a signal going to the set either cable or ant or whatever, when it's turned on it should scan for inputs and if nothing is plugged in it obviously won't find anything and shut itself down.

Hope this helps

The only time I have seen this is when the set is in the "auto program" mode. Once completed, this should not show up again unless the set has been unplugged for a long period of time. Does this show up each time you turn on the set?

    Frankz,



    This could be a logic problem or even a power supply problem. Does this set remain in this condition, never coming out? The autoprogram can take up to 5 minutes these days. I'll research this a bit and see if I can give you some additional things to check for.

    Thanks for the update. Since the set is shutting itself down, the self tests are finding a fault. The unit is not searching for channels, it is attempting to startup. It doesn't matter whether or not a cable is connected. Not finding a channel or signal will not shutdown the set. I'll look up this model tonite and get more info.



    Stay tuned...

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

TV does not turn on? (Relay problem?)


The power supply could be failing intermittently. That's why it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Also, the relay could be erratic.

It does not matter that you do not have a computer hooked up or not what it is telling you in a scripted message where a computer might be used for that connection is that you have a setting wrong in the display section of the flat panel that is not compatible with the input signal. Find out what kind of input signal; you are supplying to the display and then set your display setting if they go that high to that display mode and the unit should give you a picture.

PLASMA DISPLAY STARTING UP. PLEASE WAIT


Un plug the power to the Plasma Screen and also to the Media Receiver for ten minutes. Disconnect the off the air antennas both A and B. After ten minutes plug in the plasma screen then the media receiver and turn on wi the remote control. You should now be back in operation. I was.
Also It may not be a bad digital tuner. The TV Guide feature is active even when the zip code is set to all 0s so if you have an over the air antenna attached the TV will look for the TV Guide info and if it can not find it because of a weak signal or the chanel it is tuned to does not carry that information the TV thinks that tuner does not work which triggers the 12 flashes. Also on power up the gray box with the waring message "Plasma Display Starting Up, Please Wait" appears and the screen is blank.
