Sony KP65WS500 5 blinks


Just remember one thing; as soon as I power on the TV it goes off by itself within 5s. I can't have the TV menu at all.
I can only adjust the CRT voltage one CRT at a time. Let's say if I want to adjust the voltage for the Red CRT. (I have to open the front of the TV and unplug the Green and the Blue CRT Boards.)
Then if I power on the TV with only the RED CRT, the TV stays up and I can adjust the voltage until the lines disappear.
Then so on for The BLUE on, and after then The GREEN.
BUT, if after the one by one adjustment is done and I hook back all 3 CRTs at power up the TV turn itself back off.

Note: I have the service manual, in detail I have the 4 books:
KP-51WS500 KP-57WS500 KP-65WS500 chassis RA-6 Color Rear Video Projector SONY:
1- Correction and Supplement
2- Adjustments
3- Parts List
4- Schematics
I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

I think problem is in Protection circuit itself. Protection seems unstable in your tv that's why it doesn't give you chance to diagnose problem.
Try to isolate protection command and check tv.
Its an idea and hopefully it will work.

Kdl-55ex620 red light blinks 3 times

Unplug your TV from the AC power. Press and hold the power button on the TV itself for about 10 seconds and then release. After another minute, plug the TV back in and press power once.
If the blinking is still occurring then this unfortunately indicates a failure within the TV and will require a service. If all OK then happy viewing!

My sony kp-53v35 keeps immediately shutting itself off

Older model---it should when you try to turn it on have the red light blink for several seconds (set is checking things inside) and if comes on and shuts off that light should blink a specific sequence of blinks----5 blinks and repeat it endlessly---

I have a stupid question: when it first failed did you hear a small pop or smell a faint odor of something burning?

Tv automatically powers off by itself within seconds.

This model has a self check: with the set plugged in turn it on--green power light comes on and a few seconds later goes off.

On front of set press and hold BOTH the menu and input buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it means.
