Hi @trouleau,
 
A 6 blink error code is a backlight problem.
 
Here’s an image taken from the [https://www.electronica-pt.com/esquema/func-fileinfo/73544/|service manual] for the TV that shows the various blink errors and their meanings.

Hopefully a start
 
Why are all electronics junk these days?
 
If your question was not a rhetorical one, my view is that consumers don’t want to spend too much for electronics so manufacturers oblige and push out cheaper products to the market and something has got to give, so that they can maintain their profit margins.
 
Not having strong consumer protection laws in place helps the manufacturers as well. You have to ask yourself why the same product has only a 30 day limited warranty in one country and a 12 month full warranty in another (with a commensurate price difference).
 
Also a lot of consumers don’t return faulty products within the warranty time frame either. Again look at the laws, in some countries the manufacturers get away with you having to pay for a warranty repair and return which sometimes negates the reason for doing so, given the cost of the device, appliance etc.
 
The manufacturers look at their bottom line. Returns cost them in maintaining service centres and replacement parts. If they’re forced to make a more durable product by the consumer laws affecting their bottom line then perhaps the better manufacturers will respond and stay in business and the others will be forced out.
