This "blinking" is a service code. In other words something is wrong with your set and its telling you this. You need to have the set looked at by a professional. Usually you can call a repair shop and they can give you an estimated price over the phone. Good luck!!

LG 32LM3400 turns on and light flashes three time but no picture


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

Hello
Blinking of standby light in Sony sets are fault indications. Just count the number of blinks occur at a time, after switch OFF and switch ON your TV with its FRONT PANEL POWER CONTRO SWITCH. Make this test at least three times, and count the number of blinks keenly and inform me though Fixya. It will help me a great to rach to the faulty section, or even to the exact fault point sometimes. OK.

I have Sony 40inch breviary. My tv is not turning on I reset tv but it still not working. Stand by light keep blinking but tv is not turning


Hello
Blinking of standby light in Sony telivisions are fault indications. You just count the number of blinks occur at a time when the set is switched On with its FRONT PANEL POWER SWITCH. Count it three or more times, and make sure about its number of blinks and inform me through Fixya. From that number, I can get into the fault section, sometimes more accurate to the location of the fault. Count it Keenly for at least three times and make sure before reporting. OK.
