Need Help big screen turns on thens goes off

I was watching my tv and it just turned off, when I tried to turn it back on the red power button on the tv started blinking. So I unplugged my tv, and tried again, the tv took longer than usual to turn on and as soon as the picture came on the tv turned off again, and the red button started blinking. So in order for the tv to come on at all you have to unplug it and plug it back in, power on front of tv or on remote, tv comes on and as soon as the picture comes on the tv goes back off. I would appreciate it a great deal if someone knows whats wrong or has any suggestions thank you.

    I have the set and the power light blinks five times. Other posts indicated it meant the IC4011 chip was bad. However, I sent the board to PTS and they said it was fine. If it is the high voltage center, how does one fix it?

    Same problem. TV turns off immediately and the red light blinks 3 times, pauses, then blinks 3 times again...over and over.

The blinking light tells you what is wrong with the circuit. If it blinks 3 times it is the convergence amplifiler. I had this problem and tried to fix it myself and I don't think that I have it connected good enough. I know this is the problem with mine. I will let you know if this fixes that. Let me see what 5 blinking lites mean. I will tell you what each blink means from the repair manual, 1 blink is +140 circuit, 2 blinks is Low DC, 3 blinks is convergence, 4 blinks is HHS, 5 blinks is IC4011, 6 blinks is IC4018. I hope this helps. You can get a repair manual at it really helped me. I will let you know how my repair goes. I hope this helps. Rick

The unit is going in to shutdown. Sounds like you have a short in the high voltage section.

Converter box will not stay on - starts green light then switches to red

I have one of those right here attached to my computer so I can watch TV on the PC. The red-green light is the power indicator. Your converter is turning off for some reason. Possibly it is getting a signal from another remote, and turning off. You can block the converter's remote sensor with something (black tape works) and then change the channels with front panel buttons if it has them.
Mine has power buttons for both the TV and the converter, so watch out for that.

a tv has two components, firstly a power supply produces high voltage to trigger a line transformer, in turn a transformer produces smaller voltages. firstly check if the ht is constantly been produced from a supply, if this is there than go to a line transformer, and check voltages at the output.

Your TV's power regulator may have a problem. But first check if your voltage is sufficient on the wall socket. Try using other electronic appliances there. =================================== Hope this helps let me know ok?
