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.

How long have you owned the set for and when did the problem occur please (storms, power outage, etc.)?

Also, if you unplug the TV and plug it back in- does that red light blink right away?

Or only after you press the power button?

I'm screaming your praises!! WOW! I plugged my TV in and bammo! The picture came on bright and beautiful. What a relief! YOU saved me some money and headache.

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.
