Question about Sony KDE-50XS955 50 in. Plasma HDTV
When turned on the standby light goes out and the power light begins flashing as normal; however, the set often does not continue the power up sequence. The plasma does not light up and the audio never comes on. To get it to power up after such a start up failure the set is turned off and the A/C is disconnected for 30 seconds, reconnected and then the set starts as normal.
Without being able to see the TV or take measurements when it does not turn on, my best "guess" would be the A2U board, which has most of the power supply components. This is only a guess, you really need a tech to take some measurements when it doesn't come on. I would like to get in touch with you to have you check some items using the original remote control. Do you have Yahoo messenger?

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, check T603 and R672.
Have you set the output voltage correctly?

Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in
the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to
blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the
STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.
examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.

7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.

the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from
the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet.

protector and not the television.
