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 no experince with tv's do you think I could fix this my self?, and I ve been looking for parts with no luck? also I read other post where a guy had a similar problem, he said he tryed to adjust the tube, but there was a dark vertical line, I noticed this on mine right before it shuts off. probably the blue tube is bad? how do I know if anything else is the problem to cause the tube to go? or is this common for a set 5 years old like this one (sony kp-51ws520), Thank you you have been very helpful so far just reading the other post.

Problem started after our child turned the our Sony KV-36FS320 on and off reapeatedly until it would no longer come on.. Now when turning the tv on it sounds like it is going to come on then goes off again with a three code flash. Is this the over voltage protection board or the power supply?

Hoping to fix this myself- where can i get part numbers and a good site to get parts?

according to my records on this model the A board has a problem.

My Sony KV28CL10U tv is not turning on. I can hear the sound ok, but the picture is not coming. In addition the power light is blinking 5 times. I can see from your post above that its a problem with AKB circuit. Can you tell me approximate cost of replacing this circuit? I live in London, United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, I do not have any access to any foreign service manuals as these sets are a lot different in design so I cannot help you with this one. Not only is the power supply way different, so is the color/video circuitry Good luck

hockeydad said: I have a service manual for my kv-36xbr800. The set blinks three times and then goes to stand by. A blog I looked at said IC6505 is bad. On the Tech lore it also gave T603 and r672. Neither of these references show up in the component listing. Any one have any idea which these refer to?
I think my service manual  download finally worked today. This is the issue I am trying to resolve. THe part numbers given here do not match the manual. The IC 6505 does.

Could You help me.

Here is my Email-Adress:

Thanks for your help

The  part numbers do not match the service manual that are given in the code responses. Can these be updated?

June 22, 2009 1:50 PM

Hi!
Our KDL-40S2000 just went out the other night and the standby blinks 4 times-pauses and blinks again. We downloaded the service manual however it only talks about the power led blinking and that would be the bulb. Other sites talk about the inverter needing to be replaced. We found one for $150 just not sure it will be an easy install and I don't want to buy it only to find it's something else! Please help-any info is greatly appreciated!

I am still hopefully waiting for an answer to my inquriy about the part numbers in this article not matching what is in my service manual that I also downloaded to this site kv-36xbr 800

June 25, 2009 6:49 AM

If you read the article specifically about the 3 blink code, it gives reference to discrete components that should be checked. I stated in past entries that these part numbers do not match the service manual. You said if I download the manual, which I did, you would try and reconcile the differences. This is for the KV36xbr800.

Ok well i know my Problem is

Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672

HOW DO I FIX IT?
