The power light does not blink. It stays green
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 8 years ago

Hello

 

That is weird because any failure of this type will automatically start up the error control circuits in the set so it will blink.........no blink generally means no error

 

The set however has a self-diagnostic on screen to incase the set runs like in your case so to enter this you need to do this

 

Whilst in standby mode press DISPLAY............... CHANNEL 5..........VOLUME MINUS...

POWER ON in rapid succession, you should now see the self-diagnostic display I need you to post me the results on screen please
