    Lee, you are correct, it doesn't blink twice the pause and again, it blinks 3 times, then pauses, then blinks 3 times again, on and on. Again this is after unplugging and re-energizing the tv at which time it shuts off after about 2-3 seconds, goes black, no noise, and starts blinking in 3's.

    Thanks, JohnMW. john@rcsllc.com

    Thanks Lee,



    I'll take the back off and try to find the thermal fuse first.



    Regards,

This sounds like a main power board issue. After you unplug it, it will work? Are you planning on trying to service it or having it serviced?
Thanks,
Lee

    also commonly with these tv's it is the two convergence ICs (STK392-XXX). they are about 6" each and are bolted and soldered on i believe. Not the easiest thing to do you should definitely know what your doing but if you have this information for a tech guy I am sure it wouldn't be a costly repair. I always recommend a qualified technician.
    Thanks,

    also are you sure it is blinking twice and not 3 times?
    Thanks,

    also I believe there is possibly a thermal fuse behind the cover you might want to check that.

    Inspect everything to see first. It is possibly the 2 IC's I mentioned.

    Thanks,

    There are 6 flashes (and POSSIBLE circuits that are bad):



    1 - +140

    2 - Low DC

    3 - Convergence

    4 - HHS

    5 - IC4011

    6 - IC4018
    This should help you also there should b an F or a CF after the model number you can purchase the service manual from www.manualsparadise.com for about 25$
    Let me know the exact model and I can give you the direct link and then you should have a much better chance servicing it yourself.
    Thanks,

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and power button blinks green for a few seconds then blinks red continuously. red light by card reader blinks red about every five seconds. No picture, no sound.


unplug it from power source completely 15 minutes then plug back in with NOTHING plugged into any of the ports. If it boots back up then does it again later it make be something plugged into a port causing power to back feed into the boards. I had this same issue on my plasma last year ended up being the xbox360. After this if it still wont power then your power board maybe bad.

Hi, my Panasonic PT47WX49E rear projection tv suddenly shut itself off. It won't turn back on at all unless I unplug it and plug it back in. However, when I do that, the power light comes on but nothing...


Either give me a yahoo or note if light on front of set blinks--count the blinks if it does.

most common is 3 blinks, pause 3 or 5 blinks etc.

Let me know if I can assist you.

No video, shuts off then back on


I checked Toshiba's website and found the manual for the set. The self restarting was indicitive of a lamp failure. The red light was solid while the green light blinked. It would then restart 8 times before both lights would then begin blinking.

No sound and the power light is blinking


I had similar issue with power light blinking 3 times and no audio/video.

The problem was a burnt resistor and gone convergence ICs. I replaced both ICs (safer bet unless you know exactly which IC covers what guns in your specific TV) and the burnt resistor by myself and the TV looks good as new.

Tv turned off


When the tv shuts done does the power light blink? If so what number does it blink? That will tell me which circuit your problem is in. Notice the number of blinks then let me know. Also what is the model number of your set.
