TV crapped out. Blinking 3 times then 2 times then 1 longer blink....

Can occasionally still hear audio but no picture. Power turns off when you hit the menu button.

If anyone has a manual I would appretiate it.

I have a thermistor that has a 1.4MOhm resistance when the set is off then it goes to Open cicuit when I turn the power on.. I thought thermistors were like surge protection and current limiting devices. I thought they warmed up and went down to ~ 0 Ohms. I cant find anyplace local that stocks the thermistor.

I also have a phillips model#32pt5441/37 wich was made on june 2004 having the exact problem as all of you, 3 short blinks followed by 2 short followed by one long one, I also get sound about 3-5 seconds after the initial(typical) loud power click when you turn it on.
If anyone out there solves this problem please let me know.

Have a new Phillips and it did the same thing. I was able to reset by unplugging. At the time I realized it was due to my using a power stapler on the same line. Hasn't/doesn't do it without any power surge.

Regardless of what I was doing, your issues are a common problem...see link below.

I still have the option to return this TV, but I love the resolution. On the other hand, it really irks me when a manufacturer knows about an ongoing problem and still sells the product.

Here is a link that might be useful: Phillips power out
