the tv was working. however now if i turn it on the screen doesnt come on and the led blinks one time waits a few more seconds and then blinks again. if i unplug for 10 minutes and then plug it in again, after 8 seconds or so it will begin the blinking process again.
if i hold the reset/power button in for 10 seconds, the led will turn off. if i push the button again it will again begin blinking one blink every 8 or so seconds.
in all of this the screen never comes on.
