Hello, my name is***** am an independent tech connected to you via this pay for assistance website service. Your satisfaction is my top priority and in return your positive rating is the only way I will receive credit for my time. To get started we need more information (additional details may be required):
Let's try to get the error code:
Unplug the tv POWER cord.
Wait 3 minutes then plug in the POWER cord.
Let the tv try to turn on then AFTER it shuts off, go up to the front panel buttons, press and hold INPUT + MENU buttons until the led starts flashing a two digit code.
For example 2 blinks pause 2 blinks repeat or 3 blinks pause 4 blinks repeat or 4 blinks pause 6 blinks repeat.
What is your two digit blink code?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
