Understanding Sony Television Blinking Codes

Many of the later model Sony TV’s have a built in self-diagnosis function. If the timer/standby indicator is blinking, this could be an indication of a problem with the unit. The diagnostic blinking will occur automatically with no action required by you to engage it. Read on to learn what these diagnostic codes mean, and how you can use that information to get up and running again.

Purchased my Sony in 04, model # KV-32FS120, SR#4033708. The Stand by/Timer light flashes 5x's. After 4 days I hit the power button & the tv came on w/perfect reception. I turned off the tv 2-3 hrs later. The red light is flashing again & w/not turn on. This tv is very heavy so difficult to get to a shop. Wondering if it is worth the $ & effort to fix it? Also how do you discard if choose not to fix it. Thanks

Thank you! We do have a language barrier though. What language is this?

Switched my old Ma's TV off at the mains and am getting the standard one blink green standby light. From the codes I guess this means data bus busy. Any ideas how to sort it greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I have a Sony KDS60A2000. Today the screen went out. When i turn on the TV the power light blinks green for at least 30 times. Next, the lamp light blinks red continuously. I have tried removing the bulb door as some have suggested but the problem still persists. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jay

I was wondering if someone could please email me the KP46WT520 service manual. My TV blinks 10 time and then 9 times repetitively and eventually turns on from 2 minutes to an hour and a half. I ordered the two sets of diodes but would really appreciate a manual since I have never sordered on a TV Gboard.

email is cfite14@yahoo.com

Thanks,

I have a Sony KDF42We655. When I turn it on the standby light flashes green 57 times then flashed red five times pauses then flashes 5 times again- It will continus to flash 5 times until it is unplugged. Any thoughts on what might be the problem? I no longer have a use for the TV, but do not want to trash it if I can repair it cheap and sell it or bust it apart and sell for parts.

I have a Sony KDF42We655 - when I turn it on the standby light flashes green 57 times then starts a cycle of flashing red 5 times pausing then 5 red flashes and pauses again. It will keep flashing 5 time in red until I unplug it. Any thoughts on what might be the problem? I no longer need the TV but do not want to trash it if I can get it repaired cheap and sell it or tear it apart and sell the used parts.

My Sony KV36FS12 picture has turned very "soft" like pastel. The red light blinks 5 times continuously. The TV is probably close to 10 years old. What could be wrong?
