Reset the TV

If a simple power cycle and restart don’t help, here are a few ways you can reset the Hisense TV.

  • Unplug the TV from the power supply.
  • Wait for about 15 minutes.
  • Press and hold the power button on the TV (not the remote) and plug the TV back to the power supply.
  • Keep the power button pressed for about 60 seconds once you’ve plugged in the TV and turned it on.

If this doesn’t work, continue with the steps below.

  • Press and hold the Volume and Menu/Guide button on the remote.
  • Press and release the power button (on the TV, not the remote).

In both cases, check if a blue light appears. If it does, wait 15 seconds before releasing the Volume and Menu buttons.

Check the power supply

Since the power supply could be one of the primary reasons you’re seeing this error, you should first connect the TV directly to the wall power supply — if you’ve got it connected to an extension cord.

You can also check if the voltage of the said wall power output matches that of the TV. A mismatch in the power output and input can also cause a short in the TV’s circuitry.

You can also check the power cord and adapter for damages and replace them if you find an issue.

Disconnect connected devices

Another reason that your HIsense TV might not be switching on is a connected network or hardware device — like a Chromecast — that might be causing an issue with the TVs booting sequence.

You can try reinserting the device once the TV turns on.

Check-in with Hisense customer support

If none of the above-mentioned fixes helped resolve the Hisense TV red light blinks two times issue, your best bet is to check and repair the power supply board of the TV or hire a professional to do that for you.

Try contacting Hisense customer support and get it repaired from an authorised place to ensure the issue doesn’t appear again.
