Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Sorry for delayed reply, I was away from computer.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.
- Have you checked all the connectors/ cables that plugged on boards in TV to make sure all are tight and secure?
- Did you replace all the boards for the same problem, 13 times flashing power light?
Thanks.

I'm afraid, Remote Tech Support option is only for Computers as there is no way to connect to TV from here through internet.
What were the original symptoms of TV problem that prompted you to replace board/ capacitors etc?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When i first picked tv up it had lines hor lines and i replaced inverter boards rt and lt and it solved my problem but in the prosses i must of broke a ccfl lamp the tv would not stay on do you think that will fix tv by putting ccfl where the other one was broke or do you think that could have been my problem the lamp
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I replaced the diode and caps in standby circuit thinking that would get tv to stop shutting down as far as standby light flashes 13 times with lamp out of tv
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
ah OK, thanks for detailed info.
13 times flashing error code indicates problem with inverter (balancer) board issue and broken/ disconnected CCFL could also be a reason of this error code.
Screen will take apart to check/ replace CCFL and this kind of work may end up with broken screen so do this work at your own risk as service manual doesn't provide any help for it.
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
