Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Sorry , the website is acting up , did not mean to post here
Will repost your question
I see that no one came forward so I will help you with this .
Give me a minute to pull out the service manual and I will tell you what this 6 blinks code means
I`m afraid that the 6 blinks code on this model is not very specific but in any cases is not the best of news .
It points to either sustain boards in your tv and their buffer boards , this means that some serious troubleshooting will need to be done and if for example the y-sustain and its 2 buffer /scan drive boards need to be replaced then you would be looking at some $200 in parts and approx. the same to have this done at home by a shop .
If this had been something cut and dry like a defective power board then I would`ve asked you if you were willing to work on this yourself but in this present case I would not recommend a DIY approach and if i may be frank , considering the age of the tv at 7 years old and the fact that you can get a new 50" plasma tv with all the bells and whistles for around or less than $500 .I would think twice before investing that kind of money into this one.
