Hello, i was wondering if you could help me out with this problem or give me an approximate cost as to whats happening..i have no picture whatsoever and i guess i need to call a repair person but i dont want to get ripped off if its something small and simple...do you know what the problem is and how it may be fixed and what price range to expect? or if its something i could do by myself? Thanks a lot i appreciate it!
Few weeks ago screen would start going blank 1/2, 3/4, then work fine, then lines started appearing on the top of the screen, and just today it wont even power up. It turns on for about 2 seconds when i disconnect and connect the power supply, i hear some sound, but then bam it goes out and starts blinking red again. This is a very frustrating issue, the Tv's about 2 years old. Let me know! Thanks~
I have the same problem. TV comes on for about 2 seconds (sound only) then the red led flashes. Thats it. Software upgrade will not fix it. Mine just hit two years old. Philips customer service is worthless.

Hi, the periodic red light is an indicator of a circuit failure, on some Television sets the number of blinks of the light will give a general idea of what circuit is malfunctioning.These sequences change according to make and model. As mentioned before it usually points to a general area and most of the time it's best to take the TV in for an estimation to get an actual idea on what the repair will cost.
The blinking should be in a repeated pattern of a count, pause,count... Can you post the count please? This is a diagnostic code that will indicate the circuit in which a problem was found. Armed with that info, we can give you an idea of the problem, its solution and the approximate cost.
Right now your TV is in " Protection Mode " because of a failed part inside. The blinking red light is a error trouble code. Only someone with the actual Service Manual for the TV will know what the code means. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common board to go bad is the Backlight Inverter Board. It what supplies power to the screen.But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms. You have a few choices: 1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself. 2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route. 3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15. 4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV. I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

the picture tube has gotten weak and the video is being muted basically. see if a local repair shop would be willing to try rejuvenating the picture tube for you. It might give you another year or two of life before you need to replace the TV.
I've seen this problem before with Philips. 6X3X blink was the X-sus or Y-sus boards. In other words, the TV cannot make the picture on the screen properly, so it won't even try and will shut down.
I've also had difficulty getting these parts from Philips (even while being an authorized service center). If you have an authorized service center near you, you might want to give them a try because I don't believe they were too expensive, just hard to get.
I had a similar problem with my magnavox tv with the blinking light issue. Eventually it just didn't come one anymore. Looking at other forms they said the problem was a bad capacitor number 2074 located on the power supply board. When I opened my tv, I noticed that the capacitor was bulging and burnt up. I bought a new one labeled 2200uf 35v and did some solder to attach the new piece. Put the tv back together and it works like new. No more blinking light. I hope this helps.
