Hello, my name is***** am an experienced electronics field technician connected to you via this pay for assistance chat based support service.

That blinking led on the front indicates the tv has an internal hardware failure that will require replacing parts inside the tv. You can try unplugging the tv power cord for a few minutes but I doubt that will help. If you want to take the whole back off the tv, use a meter to test which component has failed, order and install the part(s), then REPLY back here and I can assist you. Otherwise a repair shop would be needed.

I am here to help you. If you need more help reply back. Please be sure to click the POSITIVE RATING now. Doing so does NOT close the question or prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly does depend on your positive rating.

I understand this is upsetting but clicking the "bad/poor" rating does NOT do anything to fix your issue, nor does it issue you a refund.

Thank you,
Mike
