    Update - Sony recommended technician who unplugged the tv for one minute . . (did not look at the back - it is mounted on the wall) and said 'Sony will have to figure this one out' wrote 'won't come on' on the invoice and charged 70.00 for service call. Sony Support Centre has very poor communication procedures . . . and has determined this is a $1200 repair . . . still waiting for final decision - with no tv since Oct 6th. Continuing to call, fax and e-mail Sony Support Centre on daily basis . . . they must be very busy!

Either on of the backlight inverter boards is bad or a backlight has failed inside the panel.

    I am sorry to hear of your bad experience. With my company, we advise the customer that the TV must be in a serviceable position, which means NOT hanging on a wall so that the technician can check the "workings" of the TV. Without taking tha back off, there is no way the technician could guarantee that the panel was bad (what I am assuming since you got a $1200 estimate). There are fuses on the inverter board that have to be checked before a tech can say that iit is a backlight in the panel that is bad. Please keep me advised on your situation.

Sony TV model KDL-46Z4100, standby light flashes 14 times, no picture, no sound


14 blinks to Sony Brand LCDs indicates a 'Backend error'. It means that, the main board to this TV should be checked for fault. In most cases the main board might need replacement, and a software update too. If you wish to know more details about this blinking code, check this link. It has details of blinking codes to several brands of TVs including Sony. Actually the work is a skilled one, need experience.

The standby light just flashes. No video. Since i am an electronics tech, i checked the power board and it didnt have any exploded capacitors, and the fuse was good. So what would most likely be the next...


Hi,
Standby light would be flashing for few times then pause/ stop for three seconds and again flashing.
How many times standby light flashes in this tv?
Count its flashes and let me know to provide you info about possible cause of problem.
Thanks.

Sony Flat


Goes from on to Standby by its self because of protection mode that activates for some internal problem. Do you see standby light blinking on tv front? What is model number of your tv? How many times standby light blinking after 3 seconds long pause? Let me know to find out possible cause of problem.

Four blinking red lights.


you can have the inverter board replaced...instead of the entire panel.
KDL 40S2010: inverter part # 178950032, you will also need 2 spacers..part # 289765511
you're looking @ 200-300$ for the inverter and 5-10$ a piece for the spacers.

KDL-46V2500: inverter part # A1251295B
you're looking @ around 500-600 $ for the part
