Re: Sony Wega

Hi Marcie, It sound as though the Line timebase has packed up, and the start up circuit is trying 5 times, and fails. A Service engineer sounds a must. You could unplug the TV and look inside to see if anything is obvious such as burning or a blown fuse and then present your problem again with more details.

TV popped and shut off red light flashes 5 times then pauses

this specific type of TVs flash their standby light if the onboard testing system sniffed out a problem

so, as if your TV is trying to tell you "i have a problem and i need to be serviced"

i hope it goes well for you

I have a 36" TV that won't work - Red LED light blinks 5 times

The 5 blinks indicates a White Balance Failure. This involves checking voltages and components tied directly to the CRT. I would not suggest any attempt for self repair. The cost for this repair should not be significant. Figure a parts cost in the $30-$50 range at worst.

SONY KV-XF21N90 WON'T TURN ON, Blinks 5 times

5 times flashing light shows following possible problems in your tv..

• G2 is improperly adjusted.

• CRT problem.

• Video OUT IC1800 is faulty.(C5 board)

• IC301 is faulty. (A board)

Most probably cause is G2 voltage adjustment. If you know how to do it, please go ahead or look a tv tech around.
