Hi Hank, The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue. There is no user replaceable Lamp in KP51WS520 TV. Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service. 1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. 3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue. 4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem. 6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set. 7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced. 8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset: Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved. Turn off the television. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television. If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.
Sony has provided a "self-diagnosis function"
with your TV, that in the case of abnormalities or problems the LED or
red blinking light on the Timer/Standby indicator flashes a number of
times to indicate the issue. when there is trouble with your
Sony Television set -- it indicates the issue in either the diagnostic
mode, or even more commonly by flashing a series of LED blinks or
flashes on the front of your television. Each set or frequency of the
blinks indicates a very specific problem with the television itself. Sorry but unless you may be able to repair the television set yourself , please call a local repair shop
to the have a repairman sent out,, Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for us to continue for Helping out the Community :)
The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.
The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.
The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing) A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.
The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing) A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.
Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
Ths 5 blinks usually indicate an AKB problem. There is a break in the video path. I'll look up your specific model and post the results here. Please update this if you wish to attempt the repair yourself.
