Have not tried the tv menu I only have problem with this tv. Had similar problem some time back and got it resoved

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

Since last night. TV was working fine lights went out early morning and when I got up there was the blue light just blinking

No sound
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

OK do you have another input to try like a DVD player or blu-ray?is there no sound using that?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

Usually what happens is the box takes a hit from the outage and takes out the sound now the only way to prove that is if you try another input......

unplugged tv from wall and now there is a blue blinking light and it blinks 8 times
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

If that is not possible then you should just treat the issue as a box issue they will send a tech out to replace the box, I am assuming your leads from the box to the TV are OK and have not been interfered with....

Yes this is what I thought initially this is an intermittent regulator on one of the boards, it will need to be replaced as a cost effective measure
