Sony KV36 HS500 6-Blink problem

I've seen a lot of people discussing this problem on their forums-- it's the issue where a television has a self-diagnosing system that includes a blink (commonly the Sony models) that flashes whenever the tv detects that it may have an error.
My television is a Sony KV36 HS500 model, and it has a 6-blink to tell me if there's an error or not. Recently, the blink has begun flashing and it isn't possible for me to turn on my television. After looking at several discussions, I would think that the problem is somewhere inside the D-board of the television. The locations of the ICs are 8002 and 6501; I replaced both of them-- the tv worked once, but never again after I turned it off once.
Sometimes, when I attempt to power the tv on, it may come to work after 30-50 tries at the power button. When I turn it off afterwards, the 6-blink turns on again and the tv cannnot be turned on anymore.
Help? Does anyone know what might be the problem here?

    I have the sameproblem with a SONY WEGA KV-36HS510.  Standby light flashes 6 times quickly, then 4 time at a longer duration.  TV will not power up.  Once in a while if I keep the power plug unplugged for about 12 hours it will then power up, but this doesn't happen very often.

    Any suggestions?

Steady blink in standby mode on sony kp-57ws520

Google first the model number to find the full service manual with error codes and schematics and parts lists--I have seen it out there--problem suggests a power supply issue and that board (far left as seen from rear?) has voltages marked right on the board for most of the major plugs----you should be able to remove the board with power cord attached and do static voltage and resistance checks that way.

Have a 4 blink error on a Sony KV36FS120

Yes, there's a posibility that IC561 is partially faulty but on the symptoms you've described, I would advice you to replaced first C539(470uf/25V) and C561 (47uf). I've suspected that these filter electrolytic capacitor is already leaky or dried up...

Sony KDL-32V2500 : It comes on and after few seconds the red light blinks 4 times, then stops and then starts blinking all over again.

This is sort of a generic answer but I found this info about Sony blink codes. Hope it helps!

  • Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.
Hope that helps.

Not a problem - just clarification

They are the same part. Sony reffers to it as the optical block, while other manufacturers call it the light engine.
