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.

I have a similar problem as a few do on here. I have a Sony KDF-60XS955 and what happens is the picture and sound go out together and then the stand by green led flashes 37 times but what I think is happening is that the bulb is overheating so the tv shuts down and waits for th ebulb to cool then turns back on when temperature is ok around say like 15 - 20 seconds in all. Can this be just a bulb problem??? I have around 13,750 hours on my bulb seen throigh diagnostics menu. anyone out there with this problem please help. I thought i seen on a similar site that if the bulb goes over 6000 hours the lamp light may not light to tell you a bulb is needed but I don;t know how true this is.

I have a 40" Trinitron model #KV-40XBR800 blinking diagnostic code 6. You mentioned C515, C516, and IC206 as possible solutions. I've only been able to locate C515 (on board A) so far, and I have no idea where the jungle board is. Do you have a schematic avalable for this model? Or could you please describe the location of the other components? And if the afore mentioned components aren't bad, how else can I find out what the problem is? Thank you so much for your time.

I have a KV-HR36M31 which is now showing a 10-blink error. Whatever this means and how it is to be repaired (Sydney, Australia) is limited by the portability of a 90kg machine. Can anyone recomend a reliable repairer who does house calls?

October 21, 2010 4:09 PM

what is 12 blinks? It is a KP 53S15 and has wasboard or louver Multipel vert foldover.. I think it is in the D board but some think its in the G, can't see it being the G. Anybody have a tech note on this?

My Sony Wega kv-32fs120 is not turning on. Seems to be blinking in series of 10 blinks and no display or audio.
I did get it to turn one once and everything was functional. But since then just the blinking lights
Is it possible to receive board diagrams and possible solutions.
I'd like to try to repair it myself, otherwise it would not be worth keeping.

PTS TV Boards has rebuilt boards for various models as does Folton Electronics in New York 1-800-248-0898 they also have Tech notes and some solutions to problems. Yours sounds like convergence problems to me.

Have a FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FV15. Was working fine until I moved it from one room to another room.
The sound works as well as changing channels. Problem is no picture and constant blinking, no pauses.
If you have an idea of what the problem could be, I would like to attemp to do the repair.
