Question about Sony KV-32S26 32" TV

1 Answer

No video, continuous blinking status light. Audio OK

I have seen people post issues very similar, if not exactly the same, as mine. Turn the TV on, status light begins a continuous blicking (no pauses), can hear audio, but picture never appears. Started about a week ago where the picture would be fine and then all of a sudden would shrink upwards towards the top of the tube until none of it was visible. It is not as if the whole picture moved up (imagine Hor-Hold on an old set), as the top resolution lines remained stationary and the lower lines seemed to compress onto one another until the whole picture vanished. Was able to turn the TV off and then back on to get picture once again but as of this past weekend, even that is not working anymore. I have seen people suggest the problem is anything from cold solder connections, dried up capacitor, to Jungle IC. The problem I am running into is no one wants to give you an estimate for repairs unless you pay them a diagnostic fee (which they will apply towards repairs if you decide to repair it). I am trying to determine if it is even worth paying to have it fixed or if I should just upgrade to a new LCD (Which will have a sharper picture and won't feel like its encased in lead!). I understand that the cost of repair can vary based on root cause and parts/labor to repair it, but I just want a ballpark figure. Could any of you please assist here?

Tv won't turn on


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.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Red standby light came on and no picture sound is ok .Next. time tv came on it played approx one hour everthing ok. then the picture gradually faded away . Red standby light came on again. Still no...


Hi,

The 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.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
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.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
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.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If 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. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

B;inking lamp light and tv wont turn on


Usually when light continues blinking the main board is OK but, your video boards or other boards may have an IC problem. I've seen where some have tried to fix these problems themselves only to make problems worse. I think you'll be better off having a Service Tech fix it. They will have your TV operating in no time at all.

No sound and the power light is blinking


I had similar issue with power light blinking 3 times and no audio/video.

The problem was a burnt resistor and gone convergence ICs. I replaced both ICs (safer bet unless you know exactly which IC covers what guns in your specific TV) and the burnt resistor by myself and the TV looks good as new.
