Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

On most television remotes, there are buttons to control other units. If these buttons are hit by accident, then the remote acts like you described. Look at the top of the remote and find the button that says TV. Push it and it should start working normal. Since I'm not at my shop, I don't know the exact button or names. If this doesn't work, respond to this post and I will reply when I have a schematic in front of me.

Hello Mike
I don't know what else have you done with your TV. Yet, from the number of blinking code, I do understand that its video out board has the trouble. But, before going forward with you I want to know whether you are aware in electronics and have some experience in serivce TVs, and can follow the schematic diagrams, if I send it to you. If you aren't aware in electronics and cannot follow the circuit diagram of this set, there is no use of going forward. If you are confident, inform me. I'm ready to assist you. OK.

Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.
Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

Thanks for using Fixya.

The flashes are a diagnostic. It should be only one flash pattern, either a 5 or a 10 (there are several other patterns in between as well). Please verify the number of flashes after power on, several times, and post back here, and I will be able to help with the fix. Based on your initial description, it my be the HV distribution.

Sony Grand WEGA... | Answered on May 21, 2011


Hello. I can tell you that the blinking lights are a diagnostic system that help the TV repair man diagnose the problem for servicing. Nine blinks indicates a Panel Module Error or Thermal Error which is a complicated thing to repair if you don't have any television repair experience. My suggestion is you call Sony or a television repairman for service as attempting to repair this on your own without knowledge poses a risk of bodily injury. Wish I had better news for you but I want to tell you the truth. Best of luck to you.
