    I have the same problem. I get a blinking amber light. I have reset the processing and have unplugged all the other cables/cords. It was working for years without this problem. I haven't changed anything, unless you count the XP updates. The system does not start, but kinda churps and then shuts down immediately. Power supply going bad maybe?

This is definitely a hardware problem because it will not even get to the POST screen. The light around and the one below the power button flash amber and the system beeps. I've replaced the power supply and still have the same problem. I'll try to replace both RAM chips and CPU to see if this eleviates the problem.

Does your machine turn on? Is the blinking light red or amber? If you have it plugged into a UPS or surge protector try directly into wall socket.
Please give a little more description, also what was the last thing you did before this happened?

Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps

Thethe tv will not come on and power and theopc is flashing.


Ok This is how to troubleshoot the TV, there are lights on the front and you are mainly concerned with two of these lights (the power light and the OPC light). I) If non of the lights come on then this is a AC Power failure (There is a loose connection or you need to check the Power/Inverter unit or the Main unit) II) If the power light is blinking at a rate of one blink per min and the OPC light is off (then there is a CCFL backlight problem) III) If the power light is blinking at a rate of two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of one time per min (13V/UR10V failure you need to check the Power/inverter board or the main board). IV) If the power light is blinking at a rate or two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of two times per min (3.3V Main Failure check power/inverter board or Main board). V) If the power light is blinking at a rate or two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of three times per min (UR6V failure check power/inverter board or Main board). VI) If the power light is blinking at a rate or two times per min and the OPC light blinks at a rate of Five times per min (Panel 5V failure check LCD control unit or control panel).
