What's the model number off of the back of your TV and how old is it?

Also, what pattern is that light blinking (for example: continuous- no pauses, or 10 blinks, 10 blinks, etc.)?

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.
