The 9 blink code is caused by a bad diode on the pc board. The zero crossing detect circuit is not allowing the power supply to come on .

In both cases, I think you are either suffering from a failed power supply or the supply is cycling because of a 'downstream' problem that could be in the high voltage circuit. In each case, the blink count probably would tell you approximately where the problem is located but only a Sony tech will have access to the codes. After all, we are only mortals.

Generically, the 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem with the horizontal circuit. In order to provide accurate diagnosis and suggested solutions, the exact model number is needed. Please update this with tha number and I will post more details.

The standby light should be blinking in a pattern. Count,pause,count... Please post the count and that will indicate the circuit in which a problem was detected. That will allow me to give you details and possible solutions.

Sony Trinitron XBR, Stand By Mode?


The 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem in the horizontal circuit. Since the TV recovered once, the problem is most likely to be a bad solder connection in that area. If you can solder, resolder any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. That may resolve the problem. If not, update this and we'll look elsewhere for defective parts.

TV will not come on.


The 7 blinks indicate a high voltage shutdown (high voltage exceeded 33,000V). This is usually caused by a defective regulator. Could you please post the exact model number (KVxxx) and I'll look up the part you will likely need?

Thanks,
Dan

Yes. The 9 blinks indiate a problem in the power supply area. I need to look up your specific model later today to get you the specific parts. If you are comfortable with soldering and working inside the set, you should be able to repair this yourself.

Stay tuned...

Sony 32" Triniton TV. Will not turn on.


The four blinks indicate a vertical deflection problem. I would suspect either bad connections on the vertical IC or a defective IC. This IC is a small flat IC with about 9 pins or so and should be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that does not resolve the problem, replace the IC.
You may also need to replace some capacitors in the circuit, but try the IC first and keep us updated.
