model number tc-65v10
purchased jan 2010
the red light blinks 6 times pauses then starts over
not aware of any storm, we also have a surge protection system(very expensive)
i am certain , there are six blinks of the red light a pause then six more blinks
these blinks occur when you use the remote and when you turn on the power by pressing the on off button on the front of the tv
i have not unplugged the tv at all
Okay, I just wanted to make sure that I am looking at the right diagnosis per the blink code to give you an accurate answer.
The symptoms you have indicate a failing component in the TV. There are several things that could cause the issue, and I will try to explain them the best I can here.
First is the power supply, as there are several caps that become out of spec and can cause the TV to take longer and longer to power up. Average cost for this type of repair is around $250 parts and labor on this set.
The other is the Mainboard, which carries the communication needed for the supply to turn on and provide the voltages needed to operate. Average cost to replace the mainboard is $350 parts and labor.
Lastly, the sustain boards as they are the hardest working boards in the set and run very very hot. Failing sustain boards are very common in these sets, and typically run around $450 parts and labor.
The only way to isolate is to have a tech measure the voltages from the power supply, and also to check the sustain boards for shorts.
I'm sorry I don't have a quick fix for this problem, but it will require testing and components replacement to fix the TV.

Eric i just uplugged the tv power cord and plugged it back in and for now the blinking has gone away (who knows maybe thats all it needed)
What does the 6 blinks code mean?
