Hey everyone, I have been reading through other threads here about problems with these tv's, but figured I would pose my problem separately because it did some strange things before not turning on/getting the 3 blinking led's
Historically, my tv has had a power cycling problem twice, which was fixed under an extended warranty through Tweeter both times. Don't remember the exact part replaced however. This was a couple of years ago (I have had the tv for a little over 3 years now and it was a display model before that).
Fast forward to yesterday. (Note: I have not been having any power cycling issues with the unit.)
-Watching tv and everything was fine
-All of a sudden in the middle of a show the sound stopped working. Picture was still fine.
-Unsure of what it was, tried changing channels, switching inputs, etc and nothing fixed it.
-Turned off the tv, unplugged the HDMI, plugged it back in, and turned the tv back on.
-Turned on with no startup jingle and then said something about a problem with Fan No. 3.
-Turned it off and unplugged it overnight, went to try again this morning and it wouldn't even turn on. Just flashed the LED led for a few minutes, then proceeded to flash all 3 led's on the power button.
-I took the back panel off and all 3 fans are still spinning...so don't know what that fan message was about.
Any ideas? Just the psu capacitor problem or something else?
