Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with TV. I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.- Can you please get me the model number written on back of TV?- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?Thanks.

Any look
Thanks for waiting, 3 times flashing light indicates 3.3 or 2.5V failure to Trident chip on main board and it needs to replace B Board (where HDMI and VGA input is located) in TV which will help to resolve the issue. Please click following link to view B Board image.. TV is bit old model so it could be tough to get replacement B Board and at that point I would recommend to go for new TV instead of spending money and time on this old TV repair. 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, please click on 5 star on this page then click submit/finish button so I can get credit on website for my work.
