Red light flashing won't power on

When I attempt to turn on the tv the green standby light flashes for awhile and then a red light flashes 5 times then stops and flashes 5 times again etc....  please help me.  Is there any remedy that I can try on my own because I'm having an extremely hard time getting a sony repair person to come to my house.

    No I don't know how to use a meter or even know what a meter is for that matter. I was able to get a sony repair person to come. He is coming on Monday. Should I just let him handle it or is it something I could easily do myself? Keep in mind I know almost nothing about electronics. thanks

You have 2 good possibilities of what can be causing your problem. The first is the lamp, and the second is the ballast. You would need to be able to use a meter to determine what is wrong. Do you know how?

    I would just let him take care of it...it should run you somewhere between $400-$600 to have repaired

I have a Emerson 32" LC 320 EM1F, When I press power button, green light flashes 12 times then red light comes on and goes to standby. What seems to be the problem? How can I fix it?


It sounds that the main digital board has damaged. 12 blinks indicates it. if you wish to know more check this link for more details about 12 blinks to Emerson TVs

TV won't turn on. flashes a series of 5 red lights instead of turning green


Usually Sony and LG Blinking Codes are the same. Here is what I have.
  • Unit is dead, No blinks - Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse,
  • Continuous blink once a second, no pausing - No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.
  • 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,
  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted.
  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately.
  • 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.
  • Nine blinks - Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive).
  • Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board.

Heard a pop. Checked and had to replace the lamp. Now when turned on the power-standby flashes green, then flashes red, but TV never comes on.


How many times red light flashing?
This is an error code and red flashing count indicates a particular problem in specific section of tv, please count how many times red light flashing after 3 seconds long pause and post here to suggest a solution.
Thanks.

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times


Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.
Thanks.

Standby light flashes 3 times


A 3 flash pattern indicates that either the lamp is not seated correctly or that the lamp door is not latched properly. It can also be a fault with the switches that sense whether the lamp is seated or the door is latched. Try reseating the lamp and relatching the lamp door
