Well the saga continues. I was hearing a high-pitched warble that was barely audible after replacing my 3300 caps and still getting the seven blinks so I thought I narrowed it down to a 47uf, 450v cap. I replaced it tonight with one from Digitech and now I get SIX red blinks. Not 6 & 3, just SIX. This is going to drive me crazy. I looked on the forum for six blinks but still didn't find anything conclusive but it's got to be fixable. A difference now is that I can use the power switch to turn the blinks off. If I hit the power button as soon as the front panel turns green (after plugging it in) it clicks, then starts the flashing. But now I can press the on/off button again and the blinking stops. The high-pitched warble is still there too.
Is it really worth all this hassle to have a 42" tv? Sheesh.
