Blinks green, the red three times and pause then red threetime

Lamp door not closed is what it means but it is usually a issue:Set has where the door is at a tiny lever (remove door to lamp) that is engaged by a plastic peg on the back of the lamp door--the lever is a safety switch to prevent set from being used with the door removed.What happens in these sets is heat from the lamp can warp the door just enough so the peg no longer engages the lever.Side note: some of these is got so bad it damages the housing where the lamp goes into the set--I have myself had to cut two doors to get them out-rare but can happen.A simple way to prove or disprove this is take something not metal (I use a Q tip) and engage the lever forward---Turn set on and if it comes on the door is your problem.DO NOT OPERATE SET FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD OF TIME AND DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT LIGHT FROM THE LAMP AS IT CAN DAMAGE YOUR VISION.WITH DOOR REMOVED DO NOT PUT OUTER PIECE BACK ON AS HEAT CAN MELT OR WARP IT ALSO.IF SET COMES ON AND WORKS REPLACE THE DOOR.

The model indicated uses what is called a Optical Light Engine, it is a very expensive part and likely is your problem---not much else will cause this trouble.Let me know if you have questions.

The red standby/power light blinks and the tv

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.

Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.

Here are some options for you.

1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found at tv-part.com but supplies are limited. I would definitely shop around though.

3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.

This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
