If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

Compaq Presario Laptop half screen issue


no photos of the screen presented.
so all i can do is guess what it looks like,
its so old HP has no info on it. legacy PC, called retired.
i guess 10 years old
2007
so one side is dead, black screen right?
and if you shine flash light on the black side, is there data there or not?????????????????
the v3000 is a CCLF back lamps (edge)
and last 20,000 hours max, (very very short life)
so when one side fails. it goes black
the bulb does or its inverter, supply does.
all do this everyone,
all go dim
then blink
then die, or are random starting.
just like a florecent light in say your garage, same deal. same gas tube.

use the flash light, see its not really BLANK IS IT
only the black lamp quit.
endless post here on topic,


in the year 2010 most of these ended and are now all LED
ending all this pain.

Picture shuts off


It seems as though the bulb(s) in your unit are about to go out. This is repairable/replaceable by calling your manufacturer. If you are still under warranty they can help you by possibly troubleshooting/replacement/referrals.

TV shuts down


Stating the obvious, I suppose, but it may be possible that the TV is simply overheating. These giant TVs create a LOT of heat. Perhaps removing it from your current TV cabinet and setting it on a stand outside will help. You may even want to try a small fan to blow air to the back of the machine to see if this fixes the issue.

If so, and it's under warranty, I'd have a tech look at it. May be replacement parts that won't run as hot.

Screen flashing


you need the voltage on the ps board and the ysustain board adjusted. Possibly the z sustain board needs replaced if this doesn't fix.
