Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.

Is this something that I can repair or does it need to be made by a technician? If by a technician, is it an expensive repair?
TV Technician: Joe, Electronic Tech replied 8 years ago
You are looking at around 350 to 450 on repairs. Yes a tech should take care of it for you. You can Call Sears.
