4 blinks is a fan error. I would take the back off and look to see if the fans that are visable are spinning when you try to turn it on. If you see one that is not spinning it needs to be replaced. If all the fans you can see are spining then there may be some fans that are hidden, in this case you will need to be able to use a meter to determine what fan to replace. Let me know what you find!

How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON?Count it carefully.These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes.From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV.This will make repair easy.

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

Hi,
Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly as it was removed to replace/ check lamp in tv.
If lamp cover is not fixed, tv will not turn On and red light will blink 3 times.

My parents have a Sony KDF-E42A10 42" LCD TV. They have audio, but no video. Screen is black. Do you think they need a bulb replacement?


Yes, if lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years then it is lamp problem. If tv does not shut down and its standby light does not blink in red then lamp is cause of problem, replace it to fix tv issue.

Only comes on for a second power light blinks red 4 times, stops then repeats


4 times standby red light blinking is an error code that shows that Fan problem in tv. Check following possible causes of that problem in tv:
1- Fan 1-4 power is not supplied. (AGU board).
2- Fan caught wires or harnesses.
3- Fan connector is not attached securely.
Thanks.

If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV that goes to standby and LED blinks 3 times then check Lamp Door that seems not fixed properly.
That happens when lamp replaced in TV.
If its different model number TV, let me know exact model number.

What the @*#@*#


The 4 blink fault code means one of the fans is faulty or the H4 module in the TV.
