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.

Larry,

I have a Sony KD-34XBR970. I was watching it, and the screen just faded out and the standby light blinked 5-times over and over. I turned it off and now the standby light blinks 3-times and goes out. According to the article here this seems to indicate a power supply problem. I had an extended warranty on it, but the warranty company says the repair will be $450 (more than the set is worth they say). Seems a bit high to me. If I got a new power supply, what are the chances something else is wrong (i.e. original 5-blinks)?

BTW, the 3-blinks are typical of startup when the set was working. It would blink 3-times, the high-voltage would turn on, and the light would stop blinking and everything would be normal.

it could be a poor solder connection in the horizontal drive circuit or the power supply circuit.

I have a Sony rear projection TV Model KP-fx432M91. The trouble at first is 10 blinking codes, and i had read here to what parts has to be replaced, its the IC MCZ3001DB at the High Voltage supply board. The TV gets ok only for 2 days and the trouble is in there again. What do you think is the next step to be done? I need help for this matter.

Yes, there are two MCZ3001DB, and i replace them both. I thought its already ok for a long time but ,it ,only takes 2 days then it goes off again, with 10 blinking codes. Can you advise what to do next for this trouble. Thanks in advance larry.

Please send me a copy of the schematics of KP-fx432M91 if you have one sir. Im looking forward to it, Thanks again.

hi larry,
i have a Sony KP-51HW40 and i was looking at your "Understanding Sony Television Blinking Codes" article.. My tv's stanby light blinks 8 times but it has green and some faded blue halos, then the screen turns all green then shuts off. i was wondering what could be the problem and how much it would be to get my tv back up.

November 6, 2009 9:00 PM

the faded blue halos is most like an inexpensive convergence issue and not a big deal to fix it yourselves but the fact that the picture turns green is not good as the green picture tube is bad and has to be replaced and is not cheap to repair. about 300 or so I would say.

Hello Larry. I could really use your help.

I bought my 60" KDS-60A2000 from Circuit City with an extended warranty plan. Have major trouble getting Advantage Protection (GE) to help. The tv would not turn on. It gave flashing green that would go to red, which I didn't count but now I wish I did after reading all the posts here. Anyways, everytime this happened I would un plug the tv, remove the lamp and spray all the dust out. Replace the lamp and the tv would go back to normal?

This has been going on for a most of a year. About 6 weeks ago it didn't work and turned out that I must have bumped the lamp or something cause it looked broken inside. I was forced to buy a new one for just over $200.00 and for the last 6 week all was fine but ti did it again this morning, So I opened it up, removed the lamp, blew all the dust out, put the lamp back in and I'm back in business. At least for now.

Can you please give me some trouble shooting tips and possible send me a repair guide/manuel.

Email address nascar0u81@aol.com

Please let me know.

Thanks!

I have a Sony Wega KDF-55E2000. I install a new lamp but it still red light flashing 3 times. It work for 10 minutes and then blackout. Could it be the power supply or ballast?

November 13, 2009 7:39 AM

I have a Sony KDL-40Z4500 which is only a couple of months old and while I was watching tv it powered off and the standby indicator started to flash. I didn't take notice of how many at the time but I think it was 3 times in succession. I then turned the power completely off by pulling the power plug and when I turned it back on it came on without a picture and strange japanese looking symbols for the component name. It shut down and started to flash 8 times with a pause. Can you please help as the manual just tells me to contact sony service.

November 13, 2009 2:48 PM

i would call Sony if the set is only a couple of months old !!!!!!!
