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.

your bulb is going out, also you might want a technician to clean the fans on the inside.

Don't be surprised if you see color blotches after you replace the bulb. This will be dust in the optical block. not too much you can do about that.

I have a Sony KDL-52W4100. When you plug it in the wall socket it turns on, screen lights up for about 10-15 seconds, then shuts down with a repeatative blinking code of 14 blinks. I have read that it might be the T-con board. Can anyone confirm that or provide more diagnostic informaation. Thanks

Looking to get a sony projection TV in my area. I have been told it has a code 2 fault. Does the OCP circuit apply in projection TV's? Could this be a sign that a fuse blew on the power supply?

I have a seven year old Sony WEGA that will not power on at all. The Stand By TImer blinks 7 times. The model number is not accessible because the TV weighs too much to move. It is a tube tv - do we need to replace?

Good Morning,

          I have the 5 blinking issue, i can unplug my tv and it will reset itself for a while ( sony WEGA 60" rear projection ) ? How do I test the the boards to dtermine if they are bad, where can I buy the parts ? Your time is apreciated by all of us !!

                                         Thanks,

                                                   Barry

i have a problem with my sony kdl46hx800 46 inch
tv has worked fine for 11 months, but now it will turn off as soon as i turn it on.
if i turn the tv off, and leave it off overnight, it will stay on for a few minutes, before just clicking off/staying off again on it's own.
the little red light in the bottom left of the frame will blink 7 times, then pause off, then restart and blink 7 times again, continuously.

what i've done: i understand it's a 'high voltage/safety shutdown' issue, so i've unplugged it from the multi outlet, and directly into the wall. no change. i'm not sure what to make of the advice, 'check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.'

Hi...you've done nothing wrong just the tv have a problem. Its hard for DIY to troubleshoot the problem if you don't have any knoledge in electronic circuitry. Your tv have a problem on high voltage and to cure that you have to start troubleshooting on it power supply.If the power supply is good and the tv don't start up then you will go to horizontal circuit. Again, if you don't have knowledge in electronics i suggest you to bring the tv to technician because  the problem of your tv is not simple...just to give you an idea, every tv had a safety feature and called protection circuit to monitor  the supply voltages produce by power supply and shut it down when it gives above requirements to avoid fire. Power supply and horizontal drive circuit were working together to fire up the flyback  and the flyback will produce a high voltage to fire up the cathode ray tube.

My tv is displaying only the standby button and it is blinking 8 times I know this is an audio problem but I have no idea how to fix it can u help me to find the solution

Hello Patricia....tools you need are screwdriver to open your tv, VOM meter or multimeter for measuring voltages,soldering iron and lead plus soldering pump or weak. ASk for guidance with person knows in basic electronics or just surfing in youtube might help for lets say just typing the word SOLDERING/DE SOLDERING something like that...

Here's the procedure: Open the tv back cover by unscrewing all screws there. Locate the speaker + sign which is the positive polarity then follow that line and it will reach you to IC which is the audio IC. write the part no. of that IC and gogle it or open this site www.alldatasheet.com. on that site type the part no. and it will give you the result in PFD file open it and you will see what is the function of its IC's pins.  There is a pin mark with VCC or VDD and thats the supply pin. remember what pin that is. Now, go back to your tv power it ON and locate the pin with VCC on the actual IC. Set your meter to DC and put the black probe to cold ground which is the outer metal of the tv's tuner then put your red probe to the said VCC pin. You will see on your meter about in between 9v to 19v.Now if you get below to what i have said voltage, re-solder that IC and check again the voltage on that VCC pin slot on the board with power on and observe if the voltage is in tolerance 9v to 19v. If you get in between 9v to 19v meaning that IC is bad and replacing it will cure the issue. But on the said process you still get the same voltage as the first test,it means the IC is good and the problem is the supply. what you are going to do is to trace back that line going to power supply and i don't want you to do that because it so technical. It is better to bring the tv to the shop because you will be dealing here a lot of parts to test and its dangerous for you. Its better to spend a few dollar than to be electricuted. But if you have a knowledge in electronics well go ahead with caution. Hoping this idea will help you..

Thanks for this -I have a KDL-46xbr also with 13 red led flashes - the first symptom is what I experienced (ccfl). I have been told that it was the weather - turn the power off and power cable out for 30 mins and then power on.

While this has worked I have 1 month on the extended warranty. Is this likely a fault that will reoccur.

Also to note this is the 3rd time I have had issues with it and have not been impressed with Sony's workmanship on their flagship model (at the time).

Is there an onscreen Display of the faults so I can capture them? some sony sets have, you can press a key combination for the display of the errors.

I am told that your analysis is in the US not Australia it is the inverters and the humidity ( not that we have had humidity in the last week) that causes the issue. Now they cannot fault it and therefore cannot send back a non faulty part?

I have no picture when the tv is turned on, I do have sound for approximately 30 seconds before it turns off completely and the standby light flickers 10 times. I have tried unplugging the tv and plugging it in again with no luck. Can you help me? Hollie
Hi Hollie,the problem of your tv is in power supply. Try opening your tv set and visually check some bulging capacitor and replace it.If you donnot see any,send your tv to the shop. But if you know electronics,concentrate on power supply area,vertical section and jungle IC.

Just wonderinf ifyou can help me narrow down my search for the components that may be a fault for 6 Blinks in my rear projection Model No. KP-FS57M31. I had a look for the ones suggested above and was unable to locate. Would they have a different designation for this model

March 11, 2012 8:50 PM

In have a sony TV Serial number KP- 46WT500 it won't start The standby lite blinks 6 times then pause and blinks 6 time over and over again but won't start, how can i reset this TV to start again Help "Thank you"

March 12, 2012 9:26 AM

To all the tv have 6 blinks code,the problem of your tv is high voltage were missing. Of course,the tv really won't start. you have to send your tv to the shop because its not a problem that you can cure only by some sitting or re-sitting.. To tell you the truth even a technician like me sometimes having difficulties diagnosing that kind of problem mostly if i don't have a schematic diagram with the model.

Dear idb
AftTer your diagnosiS
its found broken FBT, transistor and resistors
They have changed. Now it works fine
The problem is simple now needs to make screen alignment
from right bottom corner and left side horizontal and vertical
In pc monitors its so easy, how can i do in

I have a sony Wega that will not turn on but blink 6 times on the standby light. Wondering what the problem is? Thanks

March 29, 2012 5:32 PM

I have a Sony KDSR60XBR1 with led blinking 3 times. Is there anything I can do to fix this myself that is fairly easy. I don't have any real tech experience, but am willing to try if not to difficult. Is the tv worth fixing, its 6 years old.

Thanks
