    G'day,

    What does it mean when my CRT Thomson 66cm Widescreen TV wont turn on,
    and the standby light flashes

    Yes, it must be pushing 5 years old, which is supposedly old age in
    modern electrical equipment, but I'm really hoping to get at least
    another 6 months out of this set so I'm out of uni and earning again.

    First sign of trouble actually started about 3 months ago. It would no
    longer turn on from standby mode. Had to physically turn the power
    button off, wait 5-10 seconds, then turn it on.

    Today, my fiancée turned the tv on, and within a few minutes it turned
    itself off, and then the Standby Light did the abovementioned flashes.
    Repeated attempts to turn it on result in the same flashing.

    Any advice appreciated.


    cheers

    I'm up in Brisbane...

    Looks like those "codes" are a tightly guarded secret... can't find any
    refs online to tell me what 2-7-2-7 could mean...

    Anyone know a good tech in Logan area?


    cheers

    Give it to a technician.

    Nah, give it to Mark. He'll rebuild the power supply.
