How To Fix Hisense TV Blinking Light

Now, let me explain the simple tricks to troubleshoot Hisense smart TV light flashing.


Solving Light Blink 1 Time

As mentioned above, when the TV is stuck in standby mode, its light flashes a single time. This isn’t a big problem and can be fixed quickly, here’ how:

Grab your Hisense TV remote and press the Power button. It will immediately Power ON your television, and the standby red light will switch OFF.


If this fix doesn’t work, ensure that your remote is working fine, check its batteries and try again. If the remote is not working, you can Turn ON your Hisense TV without the remote using the physical button on the Smart TV.

Solving Red Light Blinks 2 Times

  • First of all, check the power supply of your home. Fluctuation or voltage problems can cause your TV light to blink. 
  • Check the power cables. Damaged or rusted cables can interrupt the power supply. If any cable is damaged, replace it with a new one.
  • A soft reset can solve this issue. Turn Off your TV -> unplug it from the wall socket -> wait for a minute -> plug in the TV.
  • If nothing works, call a technician to identify and fix the problem.

Solving Power Light Blinks 3 Times

Red light blinking thrice, taking a pause, and blinking again mean there is an issue with the backlight or the inverter circuit.

This is a hardware issue and can be challenging for a not-so-tech-savvy person.

You need to replace the backlight or fix the inverter circuit. So, it is recommended to consult a technician to open the back panel and fix the problem. 

Note: The issue is the same if the red light blinks 7, 8, or 9 times.

Solving Light Flashing 5 Times

The messenger between the mainboard and the screen is the T-CON board. Any issue with this board causes your Hisense TV’s red light to blink 5 times.

Depending on the issue, the T-CON board will either get replaced or repaired. Your technician will decide this after examining the T-CON board.

Solving Red Light Blinks 6 Times

If your TV is not placed in a properly ventilated area, it will overheat, and this can cause issues in the cooling system or internal temperature sensor. 

  • Ensure your TV is getting proper airflow.
  • It is not hung too close to the wall.
  • Ensure it is out of direct sunlight. 
  • If your TV is placed in an airy, open, and moderate temperature room but still blinking 6 times, you need to call a Hisense TV technician to solve the issue.

Solving Red Light Blinks 10, 11, 15, 17,19, 20 Times

Sometimes, your Hisense TV’s red light blinks 10 times and then turns Off, but despite displaying an image, you see a blank screen (with or without sound).

It can be due to problems with LED drivers or LED strips.

If your TV starts flashing after hitting the power button, it indicates that there is no issue with the power supply.

There are chances that the main/power board is unable to distribute the power to the TV to get started due to a faulty capacitor or diode. Here is what you need to do to fix the issue.

  • Check all the LED strips with an LED tester or a battery. If damaged, replace them.
  • Check and replace the LED driver on the power supply board.
  • Depending on the cause, you might need to replace the whole power supply board.
  • Lastly, check the main board. Test it with a meter to identify whether it is faulty or not. If yes, you can replace it easily. 

Note: The main board and power board are easy to replace as they are plug-and-play.
