The TV staying in standby and the light flashing indicates that the TV is in fault mode (often called protect mode). This happens when an internal fault is detected, and the main board set the unit in forced stand-by with the led color changing.

Before doing anything else try disconnecting TV from power for ten minutes. Restart the TV with no device connected, leave it on for a while and see how it goes. Test the TV with different devices (eg. DVD, VHS,sat box, console etc .)

In your case it looks like there is no clear indication toward a particular fault. The TV coming on at random times, may point at a defective PSU, but other failures such as defective main board, overheating, defective inverter, or faulty Timing controller (TCon) may result in the same problem.

The most common fault that may cause the symptom you described is PSU. Unless there is clear sign that the PSU is damaged, this is still far from being enough to decide that PSU is the culprit. The power supply must be tested before replacing parts. Testing is done reading PSU out on different voltages. This is an operation that must be done by a trained repairer.

The high pitched noise may be given by a defective PSU capacitor. In that case the bulged or leaking capacitor is usually easy to spot looking directly at the PSU.

To book a repair call the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.

SOURCE: MY ILO LCT27HA36 TV won't come on, it just stays in standby mode/

Just FYI, I have fixed 3 of them and on all 3 of them it was the capacitors on the power board. The capacitors I changed on all 3 I got at They were: (3)-1000uf 16v PT#667-EEU-FC1C102, (2)-470uf 35v PT#667-EEU-FC1V471, (2)-1000uf 35v PT#667-EEU-FC1V102, and (2)-220uf 25v PT#667-ECA-1EHG221 the last two are located under a heat sink that you have to remove to replace them. The cost was around $15.00 with shipping for them. This is all I had to change on the ones I fixed but yours may not be the same i would not know without looking at it. Good luck and I hope it all works out for you all as it did for me. If it works for you feel free to contact me and say thank you at

I have a Neon c2297f. When I plug it in and turn on the power, the red LED blinks, whenever the LED blinks on I hear a discharge from the speakers.

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.

Tele turned itself off, red light blinks 4 times then pauses and blinks 4 times again.

You can try unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in, but according to the manual, the standby LED:
Lights up red when your TV is in PC power saving mode. If the LED blinks in red continuously, this may indicate the TV needs servicing.
