Customer Question
It does not turn...

It does not turn on, but the power led changes status when I push the remote. In it's normal mode, it seems to be trying to give me a service code: 24 blinks-on for 10 sec-dim for 5 sec (repeat).

Technician's Assistant: Is your TV connected to a surge protector or power strip?

Whole house surge, but we are in the lightening capital (SWFL). Also connected to CAT5E, that runs through UPS powering all network components. Also connected to cable box and new grounded cable NID.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

The tv is at 45 degree angle relative to vertical (I dread climbing ladder to lower, take it apart, repair, and reinstall. I'm 71, the ceiling is high, and I am not as strong as...

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?

Yes 10 minutes unplugged.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete make and model number of the TV.

Shit, it is a 48-50" vitiosus high in the wall.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 11 months ago

Yes on the phone call soon as the system has cleared the "Status: ... failure"
Can you please check on your end?
...and contact Customer Service?

And the model number would still be needed; perhaps from the paperworks?

I think the secret is in the code displayed via power led.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 11 months ago

Agree but each brand, version, model would have each own blink code.

Why make blink Codes different from model to model? Stupid developer!

Bad user experience!

Louie?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Forget the phone call.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 11 months ago

The blink code would almost always be indicative of an internal hardware issue.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter (and even perhaps a soldering iron)?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
both.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 11 months ago

Great on the DIY!

Please post back with:

  • the model number;
  • and clear pictures of the internal circuitry.

These pictures would then serve as common references.

And yes please, post back later when able.
