Question about Televison & Video
The TV is in protect mode. This is a special diagnostic mode that turns on when an internal fault such as an incorrect voltage or a short is detected by the TV main circuit board. In protect mode the TV is forced to stand-by, and voltages from CPU are kept off, apart from the low +5V DC that is used to keep the TV in standby.
General troubleshooting consists in disconnecting power cord. If that does not do the job, the TV must be tested and repaired.
Power reset will not help in case there is effectively an internal fault, but can reset the fault mode if the error was prompted because of a temporary problem (e.g caused by power surge).
If that does not work, contact the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual to get the TV repaired by a licensed technician.
Note if the TV is blinking a number of times, then there is an error code. In that case tell me the number of blinks and the TV model number.
If it blinks all the time, then there is no code. Try power reset. If that does not work you need a technician.
