TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
I have owned this TV for about 15 months.
I shut it off last night and tried to turn it on this afternoon.
It seems, I left the Video game on and plugged into the TV when I turn the TV off at the Power button last night.
The red light blinks for a slow pattern of 7 flashes then stops for a few seconds and then flashes again 7 times.
I unplugged TV and Held power button for 10 seconds. I plugged TV to power and now the red power light will not flash at all and the TV does not power up at all.
Rick, the processor in the TV is acting up right now- but it's still very likely there is an internal fault. Unplug the TV and press the power button again- follow the same procedure.
If you still have the same issue let me know.
ok...now I have pluged back in and the same pattern.
7 red flashes...then a period of 3 intervals with no flash. then a a period of 7 flashes. I tried this reset three times.
Unfortunately this isn't something that there's a quick fix for Rick.
This problem can happen due to several things, and to determine which, a Technician would need to first inspect the Power Supply Board for signs of faulty Capacitors, as well as measure the voltages coming from the Power Supply.
The Power Supply is one of the most common causes of this problem. The capacitors on this board can swell and bulge due to receiving a surge, and can cause a voltage drop on one of the outputs on the PS. This typically will cost you $150 to have repaired.
The other very common issues, are problems with the Sustain boards failing. They are responsible for producing the image on the Plasma display and are the HARDEST working boards in the set. They also incur the greatest amount of heat which can cause failures such as the one you are having. common failures for this type of TV. Average cost for this type of repair is around $350 parts and labor.
I wish I had better news, but the set will require component level testing and replacement in order to function properly again.
