Flashing standby light


Flashing red light can sometimes be fixed by holding down the power button on TV until it stops flashing then turn it off then on again. Disconnect everything except power cord before trying this. Mine was fixed this way and saved $500+ repair. Still going over 6 months on. Worth trying.

HELLO MY kdf-e55a20 tV IS NOT WORKING. THE GREEN LIGHT FLASHES 6 TIMES THEN IT FLASHES RED 6 TIMES


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The Lamp light blinks when the Lamp requires replacement.
The self-diagnostic function of the projection 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. As per the two examples below, some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
If the power light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the TV may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the TV is well ventilated.
This indicates that there is some kind of audio 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.

My tv is stuck on standby the standby light just flashes


Hi Chermaine,

If this the first time happen, the problem likely on your power supply board. It could IC or capacitor part since your TV has not enough power to turn On the display ( It just flashes standby light).

So please go check and fix your power board.


Regards,

Jay

My emerson tv standby light is on the power light flashes twice


Mine stayed in stanby mode and all I had to do was to switch the plug to a different outlet. The power strip it was on wasn't providing enough power. It worked fine for a month before I had a problem.
