Sony Qualia 005 - No picture / no sound

We have had the Sony Qualia 005 for 20 months and today the set will not come on. There is no picture and no sound and the pwr / standby light is blinking red. The T/S manual says "Your TV may need service. Call your local Sony Service Center." The Verizon box and the rest of the system are still operational (I can hear the stations through the other components - but can nothing seen or heard through the Qualia). Any ideas on what this might be?

I think this has to do with the cable box not liking the encryption thing going on with the sony tv. The cable boxes probably don't understand it fully and therefore you have intermittant problems. I would just use component inputs. Which are analog and no encryption problems. I hope this was helpful. I bet it doesn't happen using a sony DVD Player or a blue ray DVD Player either. Sony, Sony, Sony.....Good stuff...but they have their moments. Let me know if u come up with a fix for this and then i will post it on my fix it list.. Thank you again..GURU JAY

A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.

Thanks,
Dan

SOURCE: sony KDFE60A20 TV turns off and on with Red light blinking 5 times

Same problem here. 5 blinks is video related. I've been told to clean the screen by the lamp, as they could be clogged and causing it to over heat. Going to give thet a try first. I'll post what happens...

SOURCE: Qualia 005 compatibility with Blue Ray, AND where can I find a stand and a wall mount?

I may be sticking my neck out on this one, but I don't believe there is a way to improve the input resolution. If I'm right, the issue is not related to a firmware upgrade but the hardware design of the board and IC's on them. I have the same issue with a Toshiba 1920 x 1080 resolution TV.

The best you can do is to set the blu-ray to output at 720P which is actually higher resolution than 1080i. Here's why. 1080i is actually two fields of 540 resolution interlaced or put another way one 540 image overlaying a second 540 to make one complete video frame.

Still you make the call as to which one looks best to you

SOURCE: No Picture or sound, red standby light blinks six times

Sorry for how long it is but you should be able to find what is wrong in this guide

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

ONE Blink--- not used for the self-diagnosis
TWO Blinks---B+ over current protection (OCP) , unit goes to the standby
mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of
any of the circuits.
THREE Blinks---B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby
mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power
supply circuit, check T603 and R672.
FOUR Blinks---No Vert. Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single
horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
FIVE Blinks---AKB circuit (AKB), 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. Also unit be in IK blanking,
try turning up screen slightly.
SIX Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking selfdiagnosis
function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.
SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k
and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply
regulation and horizontal circuits.
EIGHT Blinks---Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and
blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401 and 402.
Intermittent problems ?? This is a great feature. You can also bring up
these fault codes ON-SCREEN to see a list of the problem numbers with the
abbreviation of the problem and the number of times this problem has
occurred. This is slightly different than entering the service mode. To see the
diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:
Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up
a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred.
Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC.
We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described
above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink
codes.
So, now that you know about these self-diagnostics, how do you use them?
Say that you have a set with a black screen. You see that the LED is blinking
4 times....This would tell you that you have no vertical and that is why the
video is muted. If it was blinking 6 times, you would know that you have a
horizontal fault.
It's not a sure cure, but it's a little better than a poke in the eye with a sharp
stick.
IMPORTANT: after you repair the unit, PLEASE clear the values on this diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault is 0 corrected, so if you don't clear them, you'll be seeing "old" fault codes the
next time you enter this screen. Clearing is done by going into the service mode ( display, channel, 5, volume plus, then power ) then press 8 and Enter, which of course returns
everything to the factory preset condition.

Color


If you're using component video cables, check them at the jacks of the TV and video device on the other end of the cables. With component video cables try swapping two of the cables on both ends to see if you can get the color to change, if it does the problem is the cable. If the color doesn't change either the output of the source video device is bad or the TV is bad. Try a DVD player to see if the problem is your original video device. If the colors are good with the test DVD player, your original device is at fault.

Sony Qualia 46" TV Model # KDX 46Q005


This would mean that your signal is being lost. Instead of snow like from a analog signal you get digital breakup when you get low reception. You need to reposition your antenna or get a better one with a little more power. Nothing wrong with your tv though just not strong enough signal.
