Hi, welcome to Just answer
How old is it ?
2 years old
does it flash in sequence or continuous flashes are there ?
do you also see flashing red light ?
continuous, no red light
actually it flashes 9 times then stops for a couple of seconds and does it again
ok and what happens if you press the on/off button when it flashes
it makes a clicking sound, i can see the screen is trying to come on cause it goes a bit lighter but then it doesnt and just keeps flashing again
the problem is with the power supply board (main board) of the unit which has to be checked by authorized service tech
are you willing to do it yourself ?
yep, i used to fix tvs years a go, they have changed a bit since my day, will it be easy enough and do u know what the cost is
usually the problem is caused due to failing capacitors on the power supply board...you can take off the back and have a look at the power supply
and when it flashes blue if you press the standby button it gives another error code
which will narrow down which boards are involved.
ok i will give that a go, i spoke to an engineer over the phone the other day and he quoted me 2 to 300 pounds to sort it out is this reasonable?
well that is a lot
a new power board will cost around £75
+ cost of repair
anyways not worth getting repaired if it costs you £300
so i will take your advice and take the back off cheers, XXXXX XXXXX where can i get a new power board?
