nothing happen. maybe I didn't explain well what is happening. what happens is that you turn on the tv and suddenly it turn off by itself, and must of the time don't turn again on. the screen stay black and the red light of the remote control is blinking and that's it.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

The remote control red light should NOT be blinking??if it is its transmitting a signal so are you sure about the check I asked you to do (assuming you are referring to the light on the remote itself)
