I have a thompson tv. It`s about 4 years old. the screen lately keeps going off and the stanby button comes on and then starts flashing. the tv will now not come on. Is it now ready for the scrap heap?
i have ever found the problem same like you, but i could finish the problem by myself. after i check the circuit board, there were many components got loss connection between the components pins to board. so i suggest you to check the connection components of your tv. good luck harvey

Did you try unplugging and replugging the set to reset? Checking remote battery? Actuating each remote function (button by button) twice in succession to reprogram? Also, could you have inadvertently de-programmed by pushing the PROG or similar button? Mfrs not uncommonly but that button in the wrong place where users, especially button mashers, are apt to push them trying to turn of the set. The suggestions above might reprogram. Other wise contact customer service for the TV and let them guide you.
Hi, 4 times red light blinking indicates problem with exhaust fan that is not running and tv shuts down instantly due to protection mode activation. Please check exhaust fan and make sure its connector is plugged in and fan runs freely. Thanks.
no ....the tube will end up after 20 yrs in 10 yr old sony... it is worth if u fix it. randomly going black means...horizontal driver trans former is the problem..or any loose contact with the 110 volt supply to that transformer,,or any loose contact with line o/p transformer.. (horizontal driver transformer may be gone then tv behaves like this) if any other parts gone tv wont come back.... there may be a loose contact call a service pro..
According to Sharp it is a software problem. Engineer came, installed software update ,10 minute job.....TV worked fine for 1/2 day unfortunately: Then images turned black and white in all channels TV turned itself off, and stanby and OPC buttons started flashing. When TV came back on its own 10 mins later , screen had 2 large square staines superimposed in image (as if it was a burnt screen)...Engineer will be back next week...all quite sad really for a new TV.....will keep u posted
