Question about Philips Televison & Video
When power cable is plugged in, you can hear this TV turn on a few relays, then after about 5 seconds it shuts off and blinks the front red LED six times, waits, then repeats. Pulled off the back cover, and corresponding green LEDs turn on as relays click on. When the third green LED clicks on, this is when the unit powers down.
The service manual I have says 6 blinks is the 5V supply. I unplugged connectors labelled w/ 5V until I found one that resulted in the TV NOT going into this fault. It is the connector going to the Philips Main Unit 310431360954.
If I then plug the connector back in, the error code panel inside gives an error code of 13, also for bad 5V supply.
No obvious blown fuses, caps, etc. Any thoughts on what to check? The main power supply board is good; all 5V points on the supply board read 5.12VDC.
Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.

Most likely a power supply problem. If it's covered under the warranty take it in right away and have them fix it. If not a good Philip's service shop can fix it. They may have a flat fee repair charge?
