Question about Sony KV-36FS17 36" TV

1 Answer

Led light blinks even when TV is off.

My TV is 5 years old. For the last week and and a half, the Led light is flashing. It flashes 5 times, stops for a few seconds, and then flashes again. This is happening all the time, even when the TV is shut off. We don't use the remote that came with the TV, we use our Cablevision remote. However, I was dusting the remote control holder, so I took them out and put them on the couch. Does anyone know of a button on the remote that could have been accidently hit? If not, so far the TV is working fine still, but does the led flashing mean something is wrong? Thank for any help, Marie.

Samsung PS51D6900DM smart TV. Stopped working and the red light flashed. DC/DC chip was burnt on the logic main board, led didn't flash. New board fit, Turns on. LED flashes now NO PICTURE Please help


Those 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.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
{View the site in web view or by a desktop to see the search box. Mobile view has no search box.}/

TV stopped working, how can I fix the problem below?


Back-light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

BLINKING GREEN LIGHT AND WILL NOT POWER UP


You can check the Error code by doing the following.

On the Front panel hold down the Device and Menu Button for 5 seconds. The LED light will then start flashing the first set of flashing lights is for the "1"5 part of the code it will then pause for about a half second and start the ones place 1"5". The code will repeat 5 times before going off.

The Error Codes: 12 - Normal Operation; 21 - X-Ray Protect; 22 - Short Protect; 23 - Loss of Horizontal Deflection; 24 - Loss of Vertical Deflection.

The problem may also be in the power supply when you first plug the device in check how many times the Led blinks if it blinks for just over a minute the power supply is working fine. If the Led blinks repeatedly and does not stop the DM is not running.
