Hi,

Sony has self-diagnostics built-in to the TV. This is as you noted indicated by the blinking LED light(s). Initially and based on conventional TV sets, the four (4) blinks a vertical failure. This would normally mean the vertical IC requires replacement. In some Sony versions/models, the IC would be LA7835 but this has to be confirmed on the actual part from the PCB. There are instances where the IC is not defective but the diode and/or limiting resistor from the FBT that provides the ~+28VDC supply to the vertical IC that could be defective. As you will note, this is rather a technical repair and not an easy user action. This of course would require a familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sony kv-27v40 standby/timer blinks 5 times


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 when turned on, standby timer blinks 4 times then stops then repeats itself, blinking 4 times again


I would certainly go in there and check out the audio amp IC. Been a while since I repaired one of these.....The audio amp in this case may have a built in timer inside the same IC. As we speak, I do not remember the location. Please note it is on a heat sink and think it is a TDA series. When you find this IC, it will cross with a NTE semi conductor . You will see a schematic telling you it is, an audio amp with built in timer. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Timer/Standby light blinks but no picture or sound when power button is pressed.


I'm having the same problem. My stand-by light blinks 3 times though. The tv clicks as if it is going to turn on, but it never does. Is there a simple solution to this problem?
