Question about Sony KV-36FS16 36" TV

1 Answer

Tv blinks on and off ever 5-10 seconds and display will not turn off

It first started that when I turned my TV on that it would blink in and out a few times and then go back to a normal picture;however, now the tv continually blinks on and off every 5-10 seconds. The display shows up in the corner of the screen and when i use my remote to take display off, the tv will be fine for about a minute and then the display will show up again in the corner, and the blinking returns. Any help on this problem would be great!

Sounds like the sets motor boating from the power supply like a bad regulator IC or a bad capacitor.

the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

LG 42 LCD no sound or picture

Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.

Sony LCD television will not power on.

I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.

Blinking picture until warmup

On Sony TV's they monitor the current drain on all three electron guns Red Green and Blue. Until all are somewhat equal it will keep the CRT blank. As the set ages it means that it might flash a few times until the cathodes are good and warmed up.
