Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
it blinks continuously. the model # XXXXX XXXXX I started having problems turning the TV on several weeks ago. I have had the set for 3 years. I don't think it occurred after a storm or any type of power out.
Thank you for the reply.
Unfortunately the set will require service in order to have it functioning normally once again.
The most common cause of this problem in this set, is failing capacitors in the power supply. They are similar to batteries, in that once they are charged, they can continue to run inedifinitely, but once they receive several surges, the resistance gets so low, that they act as a short, and can cause the TV to shut down intermittently, and eventually not power up. The solution is to have the capacitors, and the voltages from the power supply board checked and serviced. Average cost for this type of repair is going to be around $150 parts and labor.
