1. Faulty Power Supply Board

The defective power supply board is one of the main culprits for your Hisense TV blinking codes. The PS (Power Supply) board is a converter that converts your TV’s higher volt input energy source into output.

The power board meets your TV’s voltage requirement by altering the high 110 AC line voltage to lower. However, the bad board fails to convert voltage, and your TV fails to operate smoothly.

Thus your Hisense TV blinks the red light 4 times. TV’s PS board became damaged due to the following cause: 

  • High voltage fluctuations or power surge 
  • Blown capacitors 
  • Non-functioning or damaged internal components on board 
  • Bad transformer 
  • Faulty resistors 
  • Broken MLCC components 
  • Power board charging electricity behind capacity 
  • Overheated TV 


You can repair or replace your TV’s failed power supply board. But before that, you need to ensure whether the lousy board is causing your TV’s red light to blink or not.

Thus remove your TV’s back part and check the heaviest board in it using a tester. If the board or its parts don’t respond to your taster, then be sure that the lousy board is causing it. The fixing ways of the above troubles are: 

  • Install dynamic voltage stabilizer to prevent power surges and voltage fluctuations 
  • Replace the blown capacitors, board’s non-functioning internal components, faulty transformer, broken MLCC parts, defective resistors, and malfunctioning power board itself 
  • Ensure your TV is not overheating and the PS board is not drawing high power. 
  • Don’t run your TV for a long time or avoid plugging too many appliances in one electrical outlet. 

2. TV Stuck ON Standby Mode

While operating your Hisense TV for longer times, suddenly, your TV can be stuck in Standby Mode. Or accidentally, you may activate this mode on your TV. 

Your Hisense TV fails to turn on and blinks the red light 4 times when the TV gets stuck in standby mode. 

However, due to active Standby Mode, your TV will not respond to any operational manual button or remote control signal. 


Using the remote control, check whether your TV’s power light LED responds to the remote’s signal or not.

If the power light responds to the signal, but your TV won’t turn on, you need to reset your TV. And get your TV out of standby mode. 

How To Get Hisense TV Out Of Stuck Standby Mode

Your Hisense TV’s screen goes black, and your TV’s red LED light blinks 4 times when the Standby Mode is stuck in your TV. To get your TV out of stuck standby mode, do the following: 

  • Disconnect your Hisense TV’s power cord and shut off your TV 
  • Keep your TV unplugged for at least 60 minutes (1 Hour). Within this time, you’re TV and its internal components will restore functioning. 
  • Now press your TV’s power button and hold it for 1 minute (60 seconds). (Not the remote’s power button) 
  • While reconnecting your TV’s power cord to the outlet for 60 seconds, constantly keep holding your TV’s power button. After 1 minute, directly connect your TV’s power cord to the wall outlet bypassing the surge protectors and power strips. 

After completing these steps, your Hisense TV will get out of standby mode by resetting your TV’s power board. 

3. LED Back Array Problem

The LED back array issue is another cause for which your Hisense TV blinks red light while on. Your TV with a faulty LED back array can function normally.

But your TV’s red power light will flash 4 times all the time with 3 seconds pause. Your Hisense TV’s light array or board can go bad for the following reasons: 

  • Damaged, broken, or defective backlight 
  • Excessive electricity voltage variation or power surge 
  • Bad backlight inverter 
  • TV is exposed to extreme heat or cold 
  • The LED driving circuit is not supplying an adequate voltage 


Check your TV’s LED light panel and replace the defective board. The other effective ways to fix this hitch are: 

  • Replace the broken, damaged, or malfunctioning backlight, faulty backlight inverter, or defective backlight strip
  • Install voltage stabilizer to reduce high voltage variation 
  • During a power surge, turn off your TV 
  • Place your TV away from extreme heat or cold 
  • Make sure your TV’s LED driving circuit is providing enough voltage
