I noticed that when I held the on/off button down for about 5 seconds the LED started blinking. Turned out it was 14 blinks. A google showed a list of videos that showed how 14 blinks meant a short in one of the boards. The video I watched showed a process for figuring out which one. I have a local hobbyist looking at my plasma with the guidance from the video.

There is also one that claims that 90% of the problems are blown capacitors. The video shows how you identify the bad capacitors and that you rhen just need to replace them. Look for that video. I lost the link.

blown caps cause corrosive issues and can eat away the circuit boards and render them useless. bulging caps are indacitive of whats about to happen

It has a little over 5000 hours and the most up to date firmware. Recently, though, when the background screen is off-white to light grey in color, I get this flickering purple interference. It can happen on a static image or moving scene but it always seems to be visible when the background is a white to grey color. I tried running the wipe bar function overnight as well as the Disney WOW pixel flipper overnight and it's not getting better. Source material doesn't seem to matter either, cable, Blu, Smart apps, etc. They all do the same thing. If I go into the service menu and do the color slides, the colors are OK, but it does it on the lighter grey and white slides. If the picture is not white or light grey based, it looks OK, but there is still detectable flickering.

I can see that there is IR (will post pics once my post count is enough) but I wanted to make sure it wasn't anything else. Any help or guidance is appreciated. Thanks.
I realize this was a long time ago. But you said you have over 5000 hours on yours. Im curious how many are on mine. Is there a way to access a menu that gives a timer?

Thanks!

I think you have to go into the service menu. Here are some instructions:

Still got my 55" going strong. Just crossing 5000 hours as well.
At this rate holding onto it a few more years. Yes 4k would be nice and yes HDR would be nice. But I haven't seen a set reasonably priced that matches the contract.

I haven't used my 3d glasses(TY-EW3D3MU) in a long time and was looking to sell them. Other than Ebay anyone have any suggestions whats the best way to sell since they are several years old and Im not sure how much demand is out there. I just tested them and was surprised that they still hold a charge. I think I would ask somewhere between 35-45(seems fair, your thoughts?).
