Let’s get started!

What do Hisense TV Blinking Codes Signify?

Watch out for your TV if it is blinking !!

Irrespective of a major or minor one, if your Hisense TV is blinking it is an indication of errors. You should immediately diagnose the problem and try to seek out a solution as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your TV set.

If you are an owner of a Hisense LED TV, LCD TV or Roku TV, the blinking signal is applicable on your TV set also. It is all the same for a Hisense Vidaa or Android Smart TV per say.

However, if your TV is blinking, you are actually receiving an error indication from your TV set. Another interesting fact about this blinking aspect in TV is that for a specific error it blinks for a specific number of times. 

Therefore it shall not be very difficult for you to know the exact defect if you can track the number of blinks your TV set displays.

Hisense TV Blinking Red Light with Reasons

The power board of your TV needs to be replaced if you find the red power light flash and doesn’t turn on when you press the power button.

However you can power cycle your TV in the first place to check on the power board. Capacitors found faulty can be fixed at times other than replacing the entire power board.

If you find the capacitors bulging at the top/leaking/corrosive layers on capacitor legs/bottom of the capacitor pushed out, it’s a signal of damaged capacitor not the power board.

In the first place you should power cycle your TV by unplugging it from the power outlet and leave it the same for a while.

Later press the power button on your TV for 30 seconds and plug the TV back into the power source and try to turn it on. At some instances this works and can save your power board replacement. 

Blinks 2 times

It is an indication of a bad LED backlight strip or a faulty backlight inverter board if your Hisense TV red light blinks 2 times. This fault is not a big issue and can be fixed by replacing the strips.

You can consider it an indication of a bad power supply board also. This can be due to a blown or bulged capacitor which can be replaced.

Blinks 3 times

Your Hisense TV blinking 3 times signals the LED rail shutdown. It is generally caused due to excess voltage or current from power surge which might have damaged some lamps in the panel.

To check on the error you can test the lamps in the panel individually by using a 3V power source(2AAbatteries). To replace the entire LEDstrip is an expensive solution but a better one, other than changing each lamp after damage.

Blinks 6 times

You have busted the bulb probably if your Hisense TV red light blinks 6 times. Be sure that more than one LEDs on the strip inside the lightbox behind the panel is burned out. Due to its shutdown mechanism, even one bad LED in the backlight system is detected.

At times your TV might come on for a second before going back instantly. You may also notice blue flashing light on your TV before it goes black with red light, blinking 6 times.

To fix the issue you need to change all the strips as a whole. If the problem still persists, replace the IR sensors on the panel. As such spending too much on repair is not  better than replacing your TV if it is still in the warranty period.

Blinks 7 or 8  times

Your Hisense TV has a backlight issue if the red light blinks 7 or 8 times with no picture.In such conditions press the power button to turn on the TV, if you can hear sound then it is a faulty backlight. In such cases you can see dull images on the screen by pointing a flashlight to the TV screen.

To fix this up, you can open the TV and Disassemble the LED panel. Replace the faulty ones(bulb/strip) after testing the LED strip on the backlight panel. Reassemble the TV after replacing the strip or bulbs. 

Blinks 10 times

It is a bad LED driver/Led strips, faulty power board or main board if your Hisense TV redlight blinks 10 times. You can hear sound but there will be no picture on your TV.

Blinking of the red light on the Hisense TV after pressing the power button indicates that it is receiving power from the mainboard but cannot transfer it to the TV part to power on it.

This is a signal for a damaged power supply board which could be due to a bad capacitor or diode on the power supply board.

It can be a main board issue, if the TV starts blinking immediately it is plugged into a power outlet. Since the mainboard directs the initial turn on command.

Hisense TV Blinking White Light Reasons

Check on your LED strips first if your Hisense TV blinks white light.The LED strips need to be replaced or the LED controller is dead. A defective backlight issue can be identified by pointing a flashlight to the TV screen. Dull images on the screen can be seen on pointing.This means the TV is turned on but does not display images.

This problem can be fixed by replacing the defective backlight.
