My power light and OPC LIGHT ARE BOTH BLINKING

Technician's Assistant: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?

I would say about 3-4 yrs old

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

I'm about to try it

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

It started yesterday

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

That's about it

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Is the device a TV, or perhaps a laser printer? Laser printers have an OPC light, you see, in some models.

What color is the Power light, what color is the OPC light, while they are blinking?

And do they blink in a pattern of any kind, a number of blinks followed by a pause for instance? possibly up to 10 or 12 blinks followed by a pause.

I'm not able to find good advice for this problem myself, but have at least determined a bit about the blink code. I have Opted Out, opening the case to other Experts in this category.

Model: LC-46D64U
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 10 months ago

The main-board is the one with all the AV inputs attached you need to get this board out and retrieve the part-number found on the board itself with that part-number try www.shopjimmy.com if they do not have it google the part-number for suppliers

Cost of board around $100 or maybe less

Let me know if you need more help
