Hello, my name is*****'ll be happy to assist you.

This TV has nothing to do with router or modem as it doesn't have any feature to connect to internet. It would be just coincidence that it got problem when router was changed.

6 blinks red power light indicates couple of regulator chips failure on main board of TV and replacement of both regulator chips will help to resolve the problem. Please reply back if you wish to replace those chips in TV by yourself and have necessary soldering tools and expertise to assist you with further technical info and if you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use following link to get list of TV repair shops in area which will help to get repair quote...

Thanks Shahid. Actually we view the internet through my Blue Ray player, so I thought it might relate. I had read where it could be the boards, or the connection to the boards (which would be corrected if replaced). I was hoping you would come up with something else, since the estimate online was about $300 which would pay for a new TV. Is there some way to wiggle the boards to make the connection better like I've done with other electrical?
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

I wish if it was loose connection issue or dry solder joint on main board of TV, in fact it is defective regulator chips problem which is well known in tech community and replacement of both chips (ICs) needs desoldering and soldering work with proper tools and expertise to avoid any damage to circuit lines on main board.

I understand the repair cost would be high from local TV repair shop and you can buy 32 inch LCD in approx $150 to $200 so its up to you to make decision, if it was my TV I would invest on new replacement TV instead of spending money and time on this obsolete TV.

I hope these info will help, please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

Thanks.
