Question about Televison & Video
Maganavox flat screen tv build date Aug. 06 for Dolby Laboratories, model number 50MF231D/37, 480 watts, turns on after power has been unpluged but at ~ 10 seconds goes from green light (on) to red light blink code. No picture, no sound, no menu options at this point. Red light blink code is 4 rapid blinks in about 4 seconds, pause 3 seconds repeat. TV is hooked to sound system so no direct sound to tv only red, blue, green wires. Signal comes in through direct tv with DVR box. Took down last night tried with other system using red, white, yellow connectors. After moving and after worked. Put back up and worked. Turned off for the night, then same problem again this morning....red light blink codes, never got picture again.
Those blinks are fault codes. To know more visit the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

SOURCE: Philips 42 in. Plasma shut down
The LED blinking 7 times is a code to tell the service tech what is wrong with the TV. From what I've read at other sites it sounds like there;s a good posibility that it is a power supply gone bad.
You probably should call a TV repair shop for assisitance.

The TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

internal breaker, hopefully that xbox is plugged into a 3prong ac outlet. unplug the tv from electricity for a half hour and that circuit breaker inside should auto reset.
