Question about Sony KV-35S45 35" TV

1 Answer

Sony KV 35S45 Status light blinks, but no picture.

Tv is a 1999 model. When powering on the tv, the status light blinks but the picture won't come on. I do have audio though. I bought the set new and it developed this problem about 2 years later. I would normally turn the set off and on a few times and the picture would appear. Sometimes it would turn black (with audio) and would have to turn it off and on again to regain the picture. Its been getting worse as time went on and now it takes so many times (off and on) that I'll go to my other smaller tv to watch. Is it worth fixing, and if so a ballpark figure will work for me. Thanks - Maddog

Re: Sony KV 35S45 Status light blinks, but no picture.

I think the set is worth repairing,it appear it has a loose conection and a few other, as well as overheated areas witch will need to be resoldered to prevent any other problems,if you are familiar with tv service you could check the horizontal drive and output circuits,if you are not too familiar with tv's be safe and call for assiatnce from a servicer.To correcthis problem it should not be too expensive.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication. You can get an idea about the faulty stage circuit inside the TV, by the number of these blinks. Count it carefully, by switching it ON and OFF, more than 2 times at least, so that, you can make sure about the number of these blinks. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. Surf the site in "MOSAIC" view.

I have a sony bravia and its not turnin on the red light its blinkin twice

2 Red Blinking lights on this model indicate an Over Current Protection status. This could be caused by a faulty power supply inside the TV or possibly by the Flyback Transformer.

This is repairable, but needs to be serviced by a TV service technician.

Sony Wega Kv-36XBR250 screen blinking

I have seen this flashing before, this could be an indication that the picture tube is weak, what happens is that if the white balance is off there is a circuit called akb it monitors the kathode of each gun and if they are not in balance it will attempt to balance it out. if it can't the picture will begin to flash, sometimes in some models the power light will blink 5 times. On some models the power light will only flash if the tv gives up trying to compinsate for white balance and shuts off compeletely. If you see the tv shutting off with 5 blinks then you know for sure it is time for a new set.

Tv wont turn on -- stand by light just keeps blinking

This is very common problem for sony. Blinking light is power supply problem need to replace two voltage reulators in supply and caps and sometime horz output.

Sometimes if you adjust screen voltage adustment on flyback just slightly it will fix it.

cost if ps is 225.00
screen is 95.00
