My plasma tv

Today my tv has been on all day as usual. all of a sudden my tv shuts off by itself and a red light starts to blink instead of green. Is that a bad sign?? pls help.

    Yes, my TV does the same thing after only an hour of being on. The red blinking light indicates a static buildup. My TV has worked fine for 1 1/2 years and then all of a sudden this issue. The TV is almost un-useable . Some posts online indicate attached devices like DVD players can cause this but no one has a definitive answer. Philips support had me upgrade firmware, but this did not resolve it.

Tv will come on but shuts itself back off


Sounds like it just needs a new lamp.
The way to tell is the lights in front:
green blinking as TV reboots = bad lamp
red three blinks = door switch
red four blinks = bad fan
6 or 9 blinks = bad thermal fuse

TV shuts itself off after a couple minutes of being on.


One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.

1Sony LCD TV KDLS40A12U won't switch on - green & yellow blinks


Check the owner's manual for this code. Under the troubleshooting section, the flash code usually means that the lamp is bad or there is a temperature or fan problem. I don't have the manual for your specific model with me at the moment. If you have had this unit for a while, I would first suspect the lamp as being defective. I'll look up your specific model later today when I get back to the shop.

TV suddenly shut off, blinking red light in power button


The TV's power supply capacitors probably went bad.

Check with a mobile tv repair co. to see if it is worth fixing.
