My dad had a power outage, power came back on for a moment, it went back out then back on. After this, his PDP-6010 would power up, but gives the 12 blinks of the blue LED and nothing more. I've been googling and reading like crazy to fix it, and I can't seem to get anything to work. We ordered a used replacement main board, it has the same issue. Tried a second used board, it has the Red/Blue lights on solid indicating the Trap Switch was triggered. So I'm asking for specific help:
1) On the two boards that have the 12 blinks of the blue LED, if I unplug power cable, plug it back in and turn on power switch it goes to red. I can use the remote of standby button to go to blue. The display will come on and show "Starting up, please wait ...". If i press the Home Menu button, it will show up, but no matter what in about 60 seconds the display goes off and the blue led blinks 12 times. if you let it sit, it will occasionally turn back on, and repeat the above process again.
However, my dad is thinking that the issue may be related to the lack of OTA Guide updates being available, since that also seems to be related to this blinking issue. So I attempted to factory reset the TV, and also to get into service mode. Neither sequence of remote presses works. I can't get the Final Setup menu to appear, and I can't get the TV to go into service mode (Display button, 4 second pause, left, up, left, right, power).
Can anyone provide guidance?
