telivision do not turn on sometimes green light flashes then turns red
turning on off at mains helps sometimes
Thanks for the question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X'm sorry to hear about your TV.When it turns red, does it flash? Also, how old is the TV?Best,Dan
hi yes red light flashes tv is about 5 years old
The light should be flashing in groups. How many times does it flash before pausing and flashing all over again?
hi it flashes red 7 times
Barry,Thank you. This is an internal failure, and will require repair. Do you plan to get inside the TV to repair it yourself, or do you need a cost on repair?Dan
hi dan i would like a cost of repair
Barry,I posted an answer, then re-read what you said initially. You said sometimes switching on and off at the mains "helps"... does that mean you can sometimes get it to turn on?
hi dan yes it started by not turning on with remote witch lasted about 4 weeks then i tried turing off on stand by swich again it worked for 2 weeks now i turn off at mains it works sometimes
When you are able to turn it on, does the TV function normally? Picture and sound are normal?
yes everything works fine even remote
Barry,Thank you. The most probable cause of these symptoms, is a defective power supply circuit board. This is a fairly inexpensive repair, even if you hire a professional... usually £95-£150 but it could be slightly more or less depending on where you live and whether or not the repairman plans to replace individual components from the board, or the board as a whole. The latter is usually more expensive, but is a more definite repair.If you have more questions for me, click "Reply to expert."
