Blinking Light 8x

My Sony 40" kv-32fs120

Light blinks 8x then pauses and repeats, after several rounds of this it will pause and start blinking 9 times with a pause and repeats again.

Will not cut on until I play with it on the remote using some mysterious rythm and buttons combo and can get it to turn on after much effort.

After it is on it works 100% perfectly for as long as I keep it on. Have left it on for days and no problem. If i cut it off, look out as this whole process has to be repeated to get it back on.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Repair shop locally said I never heard of that and you may need a new unit.
Sounds like they want to just sell me something other than a repair.

8 blinks means an audio problem. It will either be the audio chip, or one of the amplifiers, or something in between.

Panasonic TC P5G20 turns on but screen will not activate. It then clicks and the led blinks 13 times. I've turned it off and on a few times and once the light blinked 4 times, but it's now...

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Sony bravia KDL-37XBR6 wont turn on at all, and blinks 6 times..

The 6X blink code is a bad back light error. could be one of the florescent bulbs in the panel if it shows a picture for a couple seconds and there is a darker band across the screen. Also Found loose connector CN6153 on the G5 Power Board.
CN6153 goes to CN6702 on the D4 board. Or the power board

Big screen tv

It's probably the caps in the power supply of the DM module. That's the silver looking box on the left as you're looking into the rear of the TV... Unplug it from the signal board and remove it. Open it up and inside on the SMPS you'll find 4 1000mf/16v caps that commonly go bad... But before doing any of that press and hold the menu and input for five seconds. It will then give you a series of blinks, pause and another series. Count the blinks in each of the two-digit series and write them down. Helps to know what the Tv is showing the error code to be...

Tried turning on my Sony and no picture no sound, just a black screen

Sony is known for having problems with the picture tube. Sometimes it will blink on and off. also bad connections on the main board. A CRT restorer will sometimes help with picture tube problems but this must be done by a tech that has one.
