Hisense TV Blink Codes and What They Mean
The status light on your Hisense TV turns on and off and blinks in different ways depending on the status of the TV:
- When the TV is on (active screen) and the status light is off, the screen will inform that the TV is on.
- When a screen saver (active screen) and a status indicator are off, the screen tells you that the TV is on.
- If the TV is turned off (no power) and the status light is off, the TV is not connected to AC power.
- If the TV is off (standby) and the status indicator lights up, the TV is connected to the power source and ready to use.
- If the TV boots from North and there is a slow pulsing flicker until the update is complete, then the TV is doing something.
- The status indicator turns on/off once upon receiving the command from the remote controller. That means the TV has received your command.
- Two quick blinks, pause, repeat, and the TV lost connection to the network: This means that the TV was connected and paired with a Roku account and now has no network connection.
- Slow blinking until the TV turns off: This means the TV is doing something.

Troubleshooting No Image

- If you are using an external antenna and the picture is temporarily blurry or cut off, check the orientation, position, and connection of the antenna. Adjust the direction of the antenna or reset or tune the channel.

Troubleshoot no sound.
If the picture is normal but there is no sound, try the following troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue:
- Check the volume settings. If the volume is low, try to keep it loud enough to be heard. You can use the volume buttons on the remote control or on the TV.
- Make sure the silent mode is set to "on". Silent mode turns off the sound from your TV. If mute mode is enabled, you need to set it to "off" to get sound.
- If you connected an external source to the TV and there is no sound, check the correct output connection on the external source and the correct input connection on the TV. Make sure you have made the input mode selection of the correct input signal.
Troubleshooting No signal problem
First, make sure your TV is set to the correct source or input. Try changing the source or input to TV, AV, Digital TV, or DTV to see if the problem goes away.
If incorrect input is not the cause of the No Signal error, it is most likely related to antenna or configuration issues. To troubleshoot receiving problems, try these instructions:
- Check if the UHF antenna is misaligned or blocked.
- Check if the plate is misplaced or blocked.
- Look for loose connections from the antenna cable to the TV.
If there is still no signal, try unplugging and re-plugging the power cord to your Hisense TV.
