I have a kp-51hw40 that shuts off while we were watching. The TV will not turn back on and the TIMER/Standby led keeps giving "6 blinks". Do you have any infomation that might help me fix it? Thanks.

Re: Sony KP-51HW40 6 blinks
I guess you read the fix for my set wth the six-blink error. If not, here's the link: http://www.fixya.com/support/t647530-tv_couldnt_turn_no_picture
My set is a KP-53HS30, chassis number P65A-A.
I found a bulged capacitor on the "G" power supply board and replaced the components associated with that circuit (6-volt regulator). If your set has the P65A chassis, I'd be happy to e-mail you the service manual I have, if it will help.

Sony TVs generate an error code. The front panel LED (red) will flash anywhere from one to eight times which can isolate the problem circuit. It is not always accurate.
If you have a test meter which can read DC voltages and resistance in ohms, you can locate the problem area. If you lack the expertice to do so, contact a sony authorized servicer. If you have the ability, start by checking fuses on the "G" board ( power supply board) and the "D" board or deflection board.
A major problem area in this TV is the convergence circuit. There are six fuses around the convergence output ICs on the "D" board.
I had the same problem. i was told by one of these so-called experts @ fixya that my flyback transformer needed to be replaced (the 8 blinks on the standby was the indicator). but i recently replaced it and im having the same problem. sorry. no advice. good luck.
TURN TIMER OFF. GO TO SONY.COM, TROUBLESHOOTING, OR
The STANDBY light is flashing on the television and there is no picture or sound.
The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
Turn off the television.
IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
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.
NOTE: 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.
Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.
