OK now back to your issue and I am afraid I do not have good news for you about this issue....

Ask Your Own TV Question

Its bad back-lights that are triggering this one blink code, unfortunately its not an option to replace back-lights due to costs, particularly if the set is over say 4 years

Ask Your Own TV Question

The back-lights illuminate the pixels if they develop a problem then the set will shut down

Ask Your Own TV Question

Once again sorry for bad news let me know what you think here

Yes unfortunately we get this type of problem everyday even with sets under warranty, if you do get a new set make sure you get at least 4 years extended cover

A positive rating at this point is welcome 3 to 5 stars with the rating bar of stars at the top of the page thank you,the site will then release a payment to me thanks again,note question remains open for 30 days

If the tv shuts down then say blinks twice and then once every few seconds is that the say
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
