Blinking TV

Recommended Posts

I have a 3 year old  TCL 55" tv  (never again !) Piece of junk that has given me problems from day 1. Anyhow the latest being its now Blinking on and off approx 1 second on 1 second off.

The only thing that is a temp fix is to restart the TV and thats stops the blinking for 10 minutes but then it starts again

 

1. Ive tried using a different wall socket

2. Turning tv off , unplugging it and holding the power button on for 30 secs and restart

3. Settings/ restore to default

 

Nothing is working, any ideas what could be wrong?

I had a 55" Samsung 4k UHD fail after 15 months, they couldn't repair it, total write off.

Samsung has a class action going against them in Oz for their constant and frequent failures.

I won't be buying another Samsung product of any kind.

 

So the big boys aren't any better.

Found a company that sends a technician to my home so no need to try and get this monster into a cab

Had exactly the same problem with a Samsung until it gave up altogether. New "transformer" was required 2340 baht.

My 55in Samsung has worked perfectly since I bought it 8 years ago. In fact I keep rather hoping it would break down as that would give me an excuse to buy the 75in one I fancy.

Do you imagine "real brands" never fail? TCL has been around for quite a while now and if you look at the reviews they get pretty high praise.
