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.

Hi! Hoping someone can help. Our TV blinks seven times? What are we supposed to do now? Can we fix it ourselves? Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello... I have a problem with my Sony KDL-40S3000 the standby light blinks 11 times over and over. It was playing fine then just saw a thin line horizontaly (it was made by color squares) and picture went out... I got it to come back on for like 10 seconds but i did the same thing again.

***UPDATE***
I reset the TV alot of time (too many to remember) and to my surprize it started working fine again!!!... hope it doesn't act up again =)

Hello. I probably shouldnt post here but i dont know how else to get ahold of LARRY. I have read another post about the mitsu ws55813 about instructions and schematics on how to repair the DM BOARD> I was wondering if you could possibly send me the instructions or maybe give me an idea of how to get ahold of them.
thanks larry Corley2437@sbcglobal.net

So I replace the Convergance IC's and a pico fuse and it works fine now but still blinks..  Is there a way to reset the tv so it doesn't blink or do I still  have a problem?

Are you familiar with turning up your screen?   LK Blanking?  Any idea on how to do this?

Anyone have an idea of the cost to repaie a sony wega KV-36XBR800 tv with 7 blinking standby lights. The tv works just fine sometimes and at other times it won't turn on and we get the 7 blinking lights. One day it will work and the next day we get the 7 blinking lights. I don't want to pay the service man to come out and diagnose the problem if it is something that is very expensive to fix. If that is the case, i would rather put the money into a new tv. I do like this tv, however, and will fix it if the repair cost is reasonable. Any rough ideas of the cost to fix this problem? Thanks

Larry,

I am not sure how to contact you directly but I require assistance with correcting the convergence on my Sony HD Rear projection TVs. I was able to purchase the service manuals and enter service mode but there is sometimes a reference to using a signal input to manually correct the convergence. Aside from the crosshatch that is standard with the tv, is there a was to input this 'signal' grid to help with GRB color convergence? Thanks.

My Sony Wega 36" widescreen 1080i TV has 10 blinks. It would turn on eventually after 5 or 6 goes but now it refuses to respond. We can hear the sound come on and the sound of the tube deguazing(?).
I am a control system technician so am handy with a soldering iron and can read drawings, but here my knowledge of TV's stop. Anybody have any clues? I hear a lot about 9 blinks, but not much on ten?

OK ThanX, this is the right forum, from the starting post it says

"Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board"

If some one can verify that this has worked for them and any hints/tips they came across, I will order the bits and have a go...

I have a Sony KDF-55xs955 rear projection LCD purchased in Nov. 2006 that will not power on and the green LED is blinking 6 times.  We had a service technician come out to take a look and immediately said the issue was a $450 power supply without even touching the TV.  I have now looked at a couple of forums that say 6 blinks = No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, which doesn't sound much like a power supply to me.  Is the tech trying to rip me off?  Is there a way to know what it should cost me?

I have a 54 inch Sony Wega that turns on for a while then it will lose picture and sound both. It will stay off for about 45 seconds and come back on and play for a while and repeat this again and again. What is this problem and estimate for repairs? TV is 3 years old.

My Sony Trinitron, FD Trinitron Vega Chassis #DA4, Serial #KV32HS510 worked great yesterday, beautiful picture, is not turning on today. For a few days I had to try the power button 2 or 3 times, but it did come on. Now I get 6 blinks. If I do take it to a repair shop, what are the chances of them fixing it? I do have a friend who may be able to check it out too. What are my chances? The TV is no more that 4 or 5 years old.

Thanks!
