20 Most Recent Sony KDL-32M3000 32 in. LCD Television Questions & Answers


It will be either BM board (Video Processor board) or Tcon Board (top side of panel). I have similar problem...my TV turns on, lamps turns on (you can see them from back side panel holes) but just a dark blue picture appears with no image (like picture when external input is selected without signal), no OSD appears....some times I can heard audio (using Antena).
I'm thinking getting the BM board.

Recommend contacting your nearest authorized service center directly or online here:
Most of the time however, it is simply cheaper and easier to replace the television. At today's price point, they are practically disposable.

What does it do if you unhook the flat cables going from the tcon to the panel, does the blinking go away and do you have sound then?

Hello !

I would you to try this open the back disconnect the power cable to the video card  of the set  then put it back  then on it .

Remember when doing this make sure there's no power coming in from the wall socket  otherwise u will be short circuited 


good luck

Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

You probably have a bad main digital video board. I would not suggest a person with prior electronics experience to perform this repair as the set holds extremely high voltages for hours after being turned off.
If you want to try it yourself, you can get the replacement part here

A service manual would come in handy when you are working on something like this. You may want to try searching for one before starting this repair. If you cant find it then let me know and I will guide you with the repair.

You have a couple of problems if you are sure there are 2 different blink codes. 13 blinks indicates a backlight balancer error which would explain your no light condition. 14 blinks would be a TCON board error which is the driver board for the LCD screen. Either error would keep the screen black.

The cost of the repair would be quite close to a purchase of a new same size TV. It is safe to use unless you start to hear crackling noises which indicates short circuiting

Thats usually caused by bad flex tab bonds on the LCD panel itself. If you search for flex tab issues vidoes it will show how the pisture can get slow motion in areass as well as double images in that area.

Sounds like a back light failure. To verify this, turn on the set, dim the lights in room. Shine a bright flash light on the screen, if you see a faint picture on the screen, you have a back light failure. You either have a blown back lamp, 24v circuit fault, or a failed inverter board.

Question does not make sense, are you able to provide more information?

If remote has the aspect button it will do this depending on signals--some boxes preset the aspect for the signal they are outing to your TV---4x3 for example may not be able to be switched to full or 16x9.

Sounds like a bad LCD panel tab. Sony and Samsungs are notorious for that. Just search Youtube for "bad LCD tabs", and you will see videos of the actual problem and symptoms.
