    Oh my gosh.  I just had this happen yesterday (Dec. 24, 2008) while I was turning off a DVD (thought there was a connection to that).  I have a Sony Wega Trinitron KV27FS13 and my front panel "Standby/Timer" light flashes 4 times in a row.  I have tried the manual idea (unplug and replug) but nothing works.  My TV sounds like it's turning on but immediately turns itself off.  The light are flashing consistently at 4 flashes per interval.  I also emailed SONY tech help and they said it needs service call.  But if only a few years old, how could this happen?  If anyone finds anything, let me know.  This is frustrating!

    My TV too is flashing several times. But my TV is an older Sony Trinintron. Maybe 5 or 6 years old. I just figured the picture tube was about to go, but I really don't know.

    No lights flashing on my WEGA 36 inch Sony but it goes black about once (for a second or so) and then goes back to working for another 10-15 seconds then repeats. Help Please?

The blinking LEDs indicates that the built-in protection circuitry has detected a fault and in order to prevent further damages stops the unit from energizing/powering on. Often 7 blinks indicate probable area where to start diagnosis/checks. In your case, this would be:

  • "High Voltage Shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33K and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits."
This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional or claim warranty repairs. Depending on the hardware faults, your location, prevailing service fees in your area, repair cost could be anywhere from 100 to 500 USD (wild guess).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Six Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self diagnosis function immediately. On most versions, pls check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.

Good day.
7 years is quite a young age for a tv. I think that your problem has to do with the loose contacts in the circuitry. You can resolder the loose contacts this might resolve the problem.
Response is highly appreciated.

Sony KV-24LS35U green light flashing 11 times

The Sony error codes go up to 7, so when the standby light flashes 11 times it usually means that one of the clock or data lines deep inside the set is shorted to ground. This is not fixable from the front or through the remote, so the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Sony sets.
