Question about Sony KV-27S42 27" TV

1 Answer

Sony KV-27S42 not on but timer flashes

I turn on the power, I hear familiar clicks, but no picture or sound. Below the screen there is written "Stand by/Timer" and a small red light blinks 4 times, pauses, then repeats. Cannot locate owners manual, I'm sure this is telling me something....is there a sequence to push on the remote control? Disconnecting power does not change anything. "Reset" on remote changes nothing.

The blinking light means almost 100% that the high voltage circuit has failed. Probably need a new horizontal output transistor and flyback. Perhaps an associated resistor or diode. If you have the expertise go for it, otherwise take it to a professional. In any case be extremely careful and safe. Good luck.

Our Trinitron KD-27FS170 Tv will not turn on. It sounds like it is turning on/off but no picture or sound. The Stand-by/Timer red light is flashing 4 times, pause, then 4 times, etc.


This typically means you have a bad capacitor, you can inspect for any swollen or bulging capacitors however unless familiar with desoldering boards best leave it to a repair technician.

Hello

Blinking of standby light in Sony TVs are fault indications. You just count the exact number of blinks occurs at a time after switch it ON. Switch it ON and OFF by its front panel power switch, and not by the remote control handset. Do this for at least four times, count the number of blinks, confirm and inform me. I can then locate the fault section of your Tv, seometimes even to the exact point of fault too. OK

Happy New Year

Try to remove the vertical IC sometimes it become Shorted causing the B+ to drop. after removing try to switch on back check the B+ if ok and the LED not blinking then change the vertical IC.

On older Sony, sometimes a power surge causes the set to be in shut down mode. Try unplugging for 5 minutes and then plug in and try. This many times will fix.
