Question about Sony KV-28FX60 28" TV

TV Turns self off- 4 blinks on standby light

My Sony Trinaton is also turning off automatically. It happens quickly ; after the sound comes on, but before the picture comes up. The red standby light blinks 4 times. Assume this means something different than other numbers of blinks.? This started last week and has not stayed on ( or came all the way on) since it first happened. It is 5-7 years old so any guess on what it would cost to fix this would be very helpful ! It has been a great TV til now except for it's gigantic size and weight! Thanks! Judy

Yes, the blinks are error codes. I would not bother trying to figure out what they mean, I can tell you right now. Expensive repair. Average repair costs are 1/4 to 1/2 of the TV's current worth. Most likely a bad transistor. The average expected life span of a TV set is 3-5 years. After that, stuff starts wearing out fast. Time to move on.

Sony wega trinitron will not stay on


Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

My sony trinitron xbr tv turns on stays on a few seconds then powers off by its self and it gives 5 red blinks from stand-by


This is according to the sony service manual

Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video.

Sounds like a failure in the C Board or AKB Circuit.

Best to take it in to a service center.

Hey there, I have a Sony TV and everytime I turn it on it will turn on for approximately 10 seconds with no picture but with sound, but then after that it automatically shuts off. The standby light is...


Hi slittle, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. You have a power failure in one or more of the circuits. When you turn it on, it goes into standby mode, (safety mode), (protection mode). Sony has a blinking code they go by, depending on how many times the light blinks. Its called a Self Diagnostics Test. The TV will shut off to protect it from further damage. Count the number of blinks. Thanks for choosing FixYa...John

KV-32xbr400 switch problem


Many of the later model Sony TV’s have a built in self-diagnosis function. If the timer/standby indicator is blinking, this could be an indication of a problem with the unit. The diagnostic blinking will occur automatically with no action required by you to engage it. in yor case you have 5 blinks that´s why the last is short to be possible the count..Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

No picture and tv automatically turns off


Good day.

You are getting an intermittent performance for your unit. One reason for this might be with the loose contacts on the high voltage section of your unit. Have it resoldered.

Sony tv wont turn on, standby light just flashes


I had the same problem guys! This is what I did:

My T.V. wouldn't turn on. The standby light was flashing six times, then four, then seven...I called Sony and they told me to unplug it for a couple of minutes, then try it again...didn't work....BUT, I have found a solution:

Try unpluging your T.V. for 4 hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for me! It's called a "hard reset" by sony. I had my T.V. unplugged for the whole day though.
