Hello, my name is Shahid, I'll be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.

- There would be 3 second pause between red light flashing, please count how many times red light flashes between pause to pause, for example; 4 blinks, pauses and repeats and post the info here to diagnose the problem.

Thanks.

Hi Celal,

- Are you planning to repair this TV personally or want diagnosis and approx repair cost info?
- How old is the TV and how long it have had this problem?

Thanks.

I am hoping to repair it my self. I am electronics engineer. The problem started to day. The tv is about 8 years old
Expert:  Shahid replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for the reply.

4 times flashing red light indicates problem with back light and mostly back light inverter board becomes defective, please check left side of rear of display panel (screen) for back light inverter board that would be covered with shield, it gets voltage from pwoer supply board and produce high voltage for CCFLs inside display panel that generate light.
Please search/ goolge the inverter board with part number written on it to find replacement board.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
A positive rating to answer would be greatly appreciated!
Regards,

Shahid.
