Customer reply replied 8 years ago
yes one blink per second. normally the red light does not blink
TV Technician: PramitP, Technician replied 8 years ago
Is it accompanied by a clicking sound?
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no clinking but the red light blinks continually about five times and then pauses for about a second then blinks for about five times this continues while the set is turned on
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
when the set is turned off the red light blinks 6 times and then pauses for about three seconds and then repeats the 6 blinks
TV Technician: PramitP, Technician replied 8 years ago
I'm sorry but it has to either 5 or 6. Kindly re-check. Moreover I have seen these set having 6 blink and sometimes 7 blinks but not one confused between 5 and 6.
