If they're repairing it under warranty have them send you a box..
There is NO substitute for their repair policy - ie: you can't just take it into a local shop and have them do it, the shop will never get paid and most know that...

the mlt169c appears to be a direct replacement for the original. I fixed on of these by simply replacing the caps. Previous to this it was flashing the red light just like yours. Anyway if ya wanna give up i'll buy it for 50 bucks :)

SOURCE: Blinking red light

It appears in all cases that the power supply needs to be service. The blinking light might indicate that there are shorted parts or the voltage is low or a combination of both.
The solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.

Hi Rhaleinc,

Thanks for being so patience.

As you said, the local tech already inform you regarding the Supply Board. If i talk about the cost of supply board available on discounts would cost you 100-150 bucks depending on the model.

Now, in order to fix that, it's a time consuming job. Even a tech would take more than 2 hours. So, if you decide to DIY, you need to have a voltmeter as well to check if there is any other fault.The capacitors/diodes might be at fault alongwith supply board.If you are not well equipped with electrical systems, you might break rather than make.

If you call a tech, he would charge you more than 300 bucks ( Usually $300-500 ).There would be certain hidden charges they would charge ( Reviews as Per most of the customers ).

Let's even imagine you spent 300 bucks. Who will gaurantee that it would work? It might cause an issue after few months. That's electronic item and once it asked for repair , every time and then it would hurt yourr pocket and you would agree.

At this point, when it's confirmed that it's supply board / y /z fault, i would advise you to invest in new LCD. Atleast you do not have to worry for the next few years.

I understand your frustration, However, this would be the best solution.

Still, if you want to repair that, you can purchase service manual from :-


Sometimes, you might find a used boards ( Working, rare but sometimes available )...

You can also check few sites like :-

And you can contact them in regards to your model............

I hope that would assist you to take your decision.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Do rate the solution as "Fixya' if 100% satisfied.

When you turn it on its wont show up on the tv and it wont read a controller

Does it have red lights on the "ring of light?" If so, how many?

Disconnect your video, power and hard-drive, reseat them all and turn it back on. If it still doesn't come on and you have red lights, you need to check the power supply. If there is a green light on the back on the power supply, it's your console. If the light is red or not on, it's your power supply. Either way, you need to contact Microsoft to get a replacement.

Hope this helps,

The Power Light is Red

yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

I cant get the tv to come on it has power

You have a bad power supply (AC adapter). Watch closely at the red light while turning tv on to see if red light momentarily flashes green, then back to red.

Ilo 32 lcd

I have the same issue. Here's a temporary solution, which is what I've been doing for the last couple of weeks, unplug the unit from the wall, just long enough for the red standby light to go out, then plug the unit back up. as soon that the red standby light comes on, press the on button the the remote or the unit. You may have to do this couple of time before it works. Somedays it works on the first try for me and then somedays I have to do it 3 to 4 time. I sure that at some point this will stop working too.

Beep 3 times turns green yellow then blinks red then turns to a solid red wont turn on wont give me game

3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in) may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.

Hold the power button on the console for 4 seconds, it should override everything keeping it on and the light will turn red. If this doesn't work sorry, thats all I know.
