If you've tried everything, please tell me what type of assistance you're looking for here today- are you looking to repair the TV yourself? Looking for a diagnosis and repair estimate? Etc.?

Also, please check the pattern of that blinking (for example: 2 short blinks followed by 2 long blinks, etc.) and I can pull up the code.

one blink per second
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 3 months ago

What have you tried specifically please?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
One blink per second. For the $2500.00 I spent on this TV ten years ago, I'd like it repaired!
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 3 months ago

This TV can be replaced for $400 today. I will opt out as your TV requires repairs and are not cost effective.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Great; thanks.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I would guess the recommendation would be to discard the unit!

Different expert here. It looks like Aric had to step away. Are you looking for some help in repairing your TV, or have you decided to replace it?
