My Sony Trinitron won't turn on...has 4 blinks in Standby.

My Sony Trinitron was working one minute....I put my TVR on pause and now my TV screen won't turn on...has 4 blinks in Standby. I've tried the hard reset..leaving it turned off for 5 hours..nothing. I understand according to previous articles about this that I'm supposed to "Check IC1509, Q1505" but what does that mean? How do I do that? Thanks for any help you can give.

Comment by , posted on Sep 09, 2008 Thanks, Dan. I actually realize now that may model is different. Will that matter? My TV is a Sony Trinitron KV BM14M40. My TV is the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FV12, purchased Dec 2001.

Last night it went pop, and now I have no sound and no picture. When I turn it on or off I get a repeating sound . ( It sounds like a a dvd turning about 5 to 7 times. But this TV does not have a dvd. )

I do see 4 blinks on the LED when I turn it on.

    I have the same problem. It happened to me on Wed the 15th of October. On the 17th I was just playing around with it and it turned on. Of course after I turned it off it hasn't came back on. It too blinks for times when on standby. Any quick repairs could be done or is it even worth it? Please advise.

SOURCE: no sound, no picture standby

  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

There are two things you can try. Press "Sleep" until you see "off" appears. If this doesn't fix the problem, go to the "Eco" settings and set "Power Saving" to "Off", set "Idle TV Standby" to off, and "Auto Shut Off" to "off". I hope this works for you.

The red standby light flashes in the code of 4 times then pauses then 4 times then pauses.


Over voltage protection function is turned ON. Just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 10 minutes or so and check. If it do not help you, the main power regulator board should be checked and replaced. If you wish to get more details about blinking codes to Sony brand TVs, check the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by type in the model name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic /Timeslide option.

Tv turns on then turns off and the standby led starts blinking


Standby light blinking is sign or internal problem in tv and how many times it blinks is error code that will show what section of tv got problem. Count light blinks and let me know, there would be 3 seconds long pause in blinks so count pause to pause.

My Sony Bravia will play for less than a minute and then reverts to standy. Any suggestions?


Please unplug tv from wall socket for minute or so,, replug back in and turn it On.
If tv still goes to standby itself than its standby light would blink to show an error in somewhere inside tv circuits.
Let me know how many times standby red light blinking? There would be 3 seconds long pause in blinking so count pause to pause to determine problem section.
Thanks.

Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times


Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.
