Re: Power up then off, no picture, blinking red LED

The high voltage does come up but the set goes into shutdown because is sensing a problem somewhere in the set,the shutdown circuit gets activated when the high voltage is too high, a problem in the horizontal deflection circuit or because there is a problem in the secondary of the output transformer,this transformer helps develop voltages supplies and if one is missing the set senses the problem and shutsdown,there is another possibility and is related to the picture tube,there is a resistor in the crt board ,it should measure 51 ohms only ,sometimes it opens up and gives you same symptom.If you are familiar with tv service you can check this resistor and be alert of the other possibilities,if you are not too familiar be safe and get assistance from a servicer. Let Us know how it goes,or if you need more information.

No picture but the red power button blinks each time it blinks there is a thumping noise from speakers and a clicking sound

try checking the fuse area, together with the capacitor & resistor may one of them is faulty. and also check for any bad soldered.

let me know

No picture no sound. Red led blinks once relay clicks once and repeats

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.

Tv won't power on

the flashes are a indication of the actual problem. 5 flashes along with a popping sound is the flyback transformer failing to provide the high voltage necessary to reproduce the image on the screen.

The red led would flash about 1 to 9 times, then stop's about 5 sec and restart.
There is nurmerous problem that may cause your ctv not to function, first commond porblem is power supply, second is defflection circuitry Vertical and horizontal, second is a bad solder connection very rarely, bad cap's is a factor or voltage regulator. You would have to get the schematic first to even try to think about troubleshooting. Lot's of technician or fedup with hight price for info's, all info should be free if compagny's like sony want's to help. There web site well it speak's for itself, not enough tech support. You can't call, there no one there or won't answer.
If you need the schematic I don't know how but maybe I can send you a link. First I would check for short circutry to see if you can solve it.

No picture

Self test: Turn on and Press the input and menu buttons on front panel together and hold for 5 sec. after 5 sec the power LED will blink a 2 digit seq. This will let you know what error code. Count the first blinks then a short pause then the second blinks. Example 2-3, 3-4, 4-1. Let us know what it is.

Black screen

If the power supply IC (MX0842) shorts out, it blows the Sony 0.1 ohm fuse resistor. The set will click but have no sound or picture and the LED will blink 5 times. The power supply should be repaired by someone with experience with Sony TV's.
