Hello, Can you please get me the model number off of the back of the Ambi-Light and also tell me how long you've owned it for?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Additionally check the "red flash" and count the number of flashes between pauses. Let me know what you get (for example 6 blinks, pause, 6 blinks, pause, etc.).

Thank you for the reply. Okay so no groups of pauses, and the set has sound, correct?

Also, I need to know if that light blinks as soon as the TV is plugged in, or only after the power button is pressed?
