More than 5 blinks there is a problem in any other section. Maybe in powersupply section, deflection section and audio section also. Sometimes dry contacts in soldered points also give same symptom. Service persons only done this problem. If you technician give the chassis details.

Why will my plasma tv not turn on? red light (stand by mode) blinks 5 times then nothing. sometimes takes 5 or 6 or more times to turn off. took off back no visibly blown capacitors

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.

Likely to be Capacitors in the power supply, Getting Baggy or maybe have blown tops or check bottom burst as well, upgrade with higher voltage if possible

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...

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.

Mitsubishi WS-55613 Blinking green light. I have repaired 4 1000uF capacitors on the DM board, made sure the board is seated properly, but still the non stop blinking green light. So now I am off...


Thanks for using FixYa. The green LED on the front panel of the TV that normally blinks when turned on after a power failure or when unplugged: the green light is supposed to flash for about 1 minute while both microprocessors boot up: If it won't stop blinking it means that they aren't communicating with each other.

This issue is due to 1000uF/16 volt power supply capacitors in the "DM module" (one of the two onboard microprocessors). These capacitors are apparently small as compared to load they get & due to this they will eventually fail (usually after about 3 years). Or else they fail when there are voltage fluctuations in the circuit above 16 volts. It is recommended to install either 1000uF/25 volt or 1000uF/35 volt capacitors as replacements, so that they will be more than ample to handle any voltage spikes that will occur. You’ll need to take the back off the TV apart in order to remove the faulty DM module. You’ll need to desolder the old capacitors on DM board and install. Also check the grounding straps which are essential to the proper functioning of the DM module.

After replacing several bad capacitors (you can get replacement capacitors from Mouser electronics on line by the way.. be sure to order the same capacitance values and same or higher voltage rating and be sure they are rated for 105 degrees C.) I still had the dreaded G.L.O.D. Note that the first time I plugged it in after taking it apart the G.L.O.D was not there and it powered up normally. But when I had to unplug the set too fully re assemble it, it came back.

The issue is caused by both the FMT board (formatter) and the DM (Digital Module) board’s microprocessors tying to establish communications with each other. Somehow a race condition gets started with each thought that the other board needs to be reset and then starting the boot process over again. You need to interrupt this cycle with a switch. Buy a DPDT switch from radio shack (or Mouser Elect) and again take apart your electrical chassis (If you have it apart replacing bad caps you might as well add the switch or you may end up having to disassemble the whole thing again.) On the FMT board along the top edge near the input connector side of the chassis there is a four wire connector labeled “FC”. It has two black wires and 1 orange and one Brown wire. Leave the black wires connected and cut the orange and brown ones about an inch from the connector. Solder four 12 inch wires onto the ends (one on the source side brown, source side orange and one on the connector side brown and connector side orange) use heat shrink tubing to cover the solder connection points. (If you can’t get tubing, then electrical tape will do, but make sure the joints can’t short out to each other or the electrical chassis.) Now take the brown and orange wires from the connector side and solder those to the middle two terminals of the DPDT switch (one on each side not both to both terminals) Then pick one side of the outside terminals of the switch and solder the source side brown and orange wires to the terminal across from the same color (brown across from brown and orange across from orange) See the diagram below. The idea is to connect the wires normally when the switch is closed and break the connection when the switch is thrown the other way. Before soldering the wires to the switch add a piece of heat shrink tubing to wire so that you can cover the solder point up after it is assembled.


Now re-assemble the electrical chassis and route the switch/wires outside the chassis (I snipped a hole along the edge of the top fan shield to get the wires out.) and put it back in the TV. You need to also get the switch to the outside of the TV somehow (I drilled a ½ inch hole in the plastic cover to snake the switch through but you can do it however you like)

Here is how to use it- From a fresh plug in- throw the switch to the OPEN position (the wires are not connected) plug in the TV, the green LED should stop blinking after 60 secs like it is supposed to. Once it stops, flip the switch the other way so the wires are connecting. Hit the power button. The TV should turn on- you’re done! Yeah!

From a plugged in, hmmm my power must have gone out, state. Assuming you have the GLOD, flip the switch to the open position, hit the reset button on the front of the TV, wait for the blinking to stop, flip the switch back closed and turn the TV on normally… Again you are done…

Note that the first time you turn on the TV you may have to flip the switch the other way (if the TV won’t turn on even without a blinking LED) this means that the switch was open and you need to have it closed to get it to work. If you tried turning on the TV with the switch open, start over by following the reset button procedure above.

Note this is much easier to do than it sounds. Also note that it helps if you have the repair manual. This is nice to have because it has a wiring interconnect diagram also which details all the connector placements

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Don't know what the red light means.

that normally means there's a problem with the printer somewhere. Like toner/waste being in need of replacement. Are any other lights flashing?

LG 47LC7DF Green Light Blinks 16 Times - No Picture or Sound

Well dont keep it on!

By running it after it shutdown and it finally did its last pop that added another $XX to the parts bill.

The control boards (2) have now failed There are burned Capacitors ( pop!) and possibly even a few transistors burned out. This is not a DIY it is a Tech job as once changed these boards require additional tuning of the convergence factor.

Hi there, i have a wifi switch but when i put it on and try to connect to a device there is nothing! Asif i don`t have wifi!! can u plz help me get it up and running?

hi, when you switch up the the wifi switch, the "wi-fi catcher" window should pop up and all the available network should be there. If not, you need to reinstall your driver.
