Red Blinking Light/No Picture

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~

    My TV is doing the same thing. I went to turn it on and there was no picture and the red light just keeps blinking. I tried unplugging it and the green light came back on and the TV worked. However, now I went to turn it on today and it did the same thing and now I have sound without any picture. Does anyone know what is happening? Is it fixable? How much would it cost to fix it?
    Thanks

    I called a repair service "Phillips Authorized" and they told me to replace the upper and lower y-buffer boards and the y-main boards. The cost for them to do it is $800. I bought the two y-buffer boards, replaced them and still getting the flashing lite. The next step is to wait until my y-main board comes in and try that. If that doesn't work I will try the power board next. So far I have spent $100 bucks on parts, with $95 more for the Y main. Just wish I knew what the magical 7 red flashes meant.

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 I have a panasonic viera TH-42PA50A blinking red light and it just keeps blinking any ideas what it could be


it is not a good sign. If the tv screen is dark (no picture) and no sound but the standby red light is continuously blinking then it could mean the power supply board in tv is faulty.

Usually a few burnt out capacitors on the board but hard to replace yourself unless you are experienced in this sort of work. From the model it appears a reasonably recent unit and you may want to get it checked out by a repairer at least to get an estimate of the cost.
See this site to get some idea of the part costs.

No picture. blinking red light.


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.

No picture, just a red blinking light


First make sure to hit the menu button on the TV's remote and if nothing is there then friend while the set is on turn a bright flashlight on and shine at angle into the set push the TV menu button if you can see a image then your back light is not working.
Cost backlights around 150.00 and power supplies around 100.00. Well this should help you friend.

Sharp Aquos 32GA5U red blinking light in front but no picture!!!


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 wont appear and a red light starts blinking instead of being green.


Normally, this happens when the TV detects a bad circuit board and goes into " Protection Mode ". The blinking red light should be a error trouble code. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The common power board to go out is the Backlight Inverter Board. It's main goal is to supply 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.

Philips tv blinking red light


Hello,

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 hope this helps you...
