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.

Thanks for your article. I have a Sony KV-36HS420, it works great, but sometimes it shutsdown itself, I've noticed it happens when there's a fade out/in from black to a bright color. When it shuts down it blinks 6 or 7 times, I've turned on the TV with Display + 5 + vol- + power and it displays a "1" next to LOWB and HSTOP. I've read that it might be the IC6505, I have the service manual, I can order the necessary parts and have someone replace them, but I want to be sure.

In advance many thanks.

Hello, I have a KP51Ws510 and it is blinking eight times. I am really Ok at repair if I can see the issue. I have tried to read through and found similar threads. No real answers? I know it is the possibility of three different parts. Are these hard for the novice or should I call someone? Thanks!

i have a sony kf-60we610 today i was watching tv and all of a sudden in went black with no sound... light was green in the front until i tried to shut it off then turn it back on... then it just blinks 121 times red then shuts down. the light that flashes red reads lamp on the bottom...
can it be the lamp? picture was perfect just a short wile ago?
i will appreciate your input. thank you

I posted a comment multiple times and still haven't gotten an answer about the part numbers not matching what is being posted for the code of three blinks. My last post was on the 25th of June. I see that an Eric Mingle posted the same issue, and again the wrong part numbers are given that need to be checked. Why isn't this being addressed?!

Sorry I do not have you TV model number manual! but if the red lamp is on usually that is a bad lamp

I am still waiting for a reply from Larry Dillon in regards to my initial question about the part numbers listed in the "Understanding Sony Blink codes".
I posted the question that the part numbers given for the "3 Blink" codes do not match p/n's in the service manual. I downloaded the manual for the KV 36XBR800 as requested. I saw recently another person posted the same problem. I am trying to figure out what the p/n T603 and R672 part numbers are in the Sony manual. My last post was July 1st.

I Have a sony KV-HX32 M31.It would attempt to start have audio but when the picture would try to start it would turn off. The red light on the front is blinking 10 times then pausing. After about half an hour i tried it and it worked and continues to work but the light still flashes 10 times even though it is working. Does it just need reseting or is the fault still there?

July 16, 2009 4:56 PM

Hello. I have Sony KDFE55A20.The red light blinks 6 times. What does it mean to check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206. Is it the problem only technician can fix or can I try? Thank you.

I get 6 blinks, does anybody have a schematic so i can fin C515 & C516, also IC 206. would like to get tv working. Red convergence goes up and down but not horizontally. Blue goes up and down and left to right. I almost have this one working. I fixed a Phillips 60" hdtv for my other brother. It's been about 2 or 3 months and it works great and was easy to fix.
What about 4.7 ohm resistors, should all be replaced?

I think you are asking me (ron) the picture isn't bad at all have a little bit of light blue ghosting to the left

My Sony Bravia KDL52W3000 is blinking 13 times with a pause in between.
It is less than two years old.

What is this going to cost? This is a common flaw and should be a recall!
