Hello, and sorry you're having problems. We are now connected on this website- which saves you money over having a Tech come to your home, and in many cases we can fix the problem you're having. In other cases, these things do require additional parts to fix. But I can help you with that as well.

Please check the number of blinks between pauses (it flashes in groups) and reply back with that. This is an error code. For example: 6 blinks, pause, 6 blinks, pause, etc.

Also does the set still have sound at this point?

How old is the TV?
