Blinking 8 times

Turns on and turns right back off-- blinks up to 8 times. Is it worth fixing or should I trash it?? It is about 5 years old.

    I try to turn on my tv and the power/standby light just blinks. I try using the remote and the switch on the tv to try to turn it on and nothing happens. Eventually it will sometimes turn on after 10 or so tries, but it is getting worse. This just started happening about two weeks ago and I have had the tv for just over three years.

    I have had the tv for almost 7 years. Just the other day I tried to turn it on and the tv sounded like it was coming on then would blink a few times and stop then blink some more before turning itself off. Neither pushing the remote nor the buttons on the tv help. I tried unplugging the tv to see if something was messed up during the storm we had but still no picture or sound comes from the television.

    What does repeated 6 blinks of standby light mean (when set is turned on and immediately tuns itself off)?

This kind of tv have a good picture if you use the component input
most sure you have problems on the zero cross detector or the flyback
I did one like this one for 200.00 if we need the flyback goes up to 275.00

Toshiba 32av502r green power light flashes not turn


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy.

TV Turns self off- 4 blinks on standby light


Yes, the blinks are error codes. I would not bother trying to figure out what they mean, I can tell you right now. Expensive repair. Average repair costs are 1/4 to 1/2 of the TV's current worth. Most likely a bad transistor. The average expected life span of a TV set is 3-5 years. After that, stuff starts wearing out fast. Time to move on.

Blue Screen and TV shuts off


Here's a shortcut to what the blinking codes mean.
http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/08/sony-tv-led-blinking-codes-what-does-it.html
Strange how some people have 5 blinks. Most with this problem have 8 blinks (like myself)

I still have the blue-flash-then-shutting-off problem.. (8 blinks meaning voltage error) but I did fix the blue lines.. The lines across the screen can be very easily fixed whether they're blue green or red. . No, I mean REALLY easy. Took me longer to get the cover off. Once the front cover is off it takes 10 seconds. This link was also posted recently in one of the posts below as a solution..
http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
(My lines didn't look like the ones in the picture mine were several evenly spaced blue arcs)

After some research I believe the flash/shutting off problem means the CRT is going. I've also read that it might be the D-board and I'm not even sure that that is... But If it is indeed the CRT then I'll let you know it's very difficult to find a replacement blue CRT as this part has been discontinued.. but I did eventually find an alternate to an alternate part (yes that's the 3rd alternate !)) online for $256. Here: http://store.tv-repair-service-salinas.com/8-733-649-35.html

If you're bold enough to attempt that then good luck and please let us know if it worked.
Or another alternative is there's a whole lot of Boxing Day sales goin' on right now.

You will have to give the set out for service. This is not something you can service yourself.

This can be some failed components in the CRT bias and drive circuits, or maybe a CRT has failed. This has to be determined by taking measurements and doing some tests.

I believe that your set may have been manufactured by Philips.
