Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Sony AE5A KV-36FX60U The previous owner of this set has used it for a year with a fan behind it to stop it tripping. I found that with the back off it would work OK but otherwise shut down within a few minutes. however, now theres no picture at all and the set shuts down after about 15 secs (and blinks 5 times). I have tried disconnecting the C board also tried disconnecting the D2 board but it still trips after about 15 secs. Help much appreciated I can be Emailed chris.lowdon@***ntlworld***.com***remove unnecessary characters

SOURCE: Sony TV KV-36FS76U error code 5 blinks

Cristoffr, this is very, very interesting! I replaced all three ICs per the repair discussed over in Agoraquest:

http://agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=1121&forum=34&start=75&select_page_number=6

(scroll about half way down).

This did nothing. However, I had heard that a fan on the back of the TV might keep it from turning off. After the repair failed, I used a fan and for 24 hours the TV has remained on!

The Sony manual for repairing the DX-1A chassis gives testing and possible solutions for each of the blinking codes. About the five blink code it has this to say:

"Blanking - Standby light blinks five timesCircuit - The Ik signals are measured by Y/C, CRT Drive IC201 and areu sed to adjust the RGB gain to maintain color balance. As the picture tube ages, the Ik signals may fall below the threshold for automatic balance and mute/blank the picture. Testing - Increase the G2 control on the CRT’s C board. If that does not return cathode current to within operating range so the picture will appear, examine each filament to see if it is lit.

Then use your scope to examine the signal to the cathode. Go to CN9001/pins 1, 3 and 5 to see if there is a signal coming into the C board. Next check the signal at the CRT cathodes. If they are present, check the IK signal from CN9001/pin 8 of the C board. You should see three pulses and be able to change the level of the signal with the G2 control. If you get about 1Vp-p pulses at pin 8, this is the normal output from the CRT/C board so the problem is on the A board about IC201."

Note, Cristoffr that it mentions the C board in particular, the G2 control. However, it also mentions IC201 on the A board. I am going to post this finding to the Agoraquest board and see if anyone there has any ideas.

At least we have narrowed it down. We with the 5 blink shut-off are rare. Usually with the 5 blink problem the screen *blanks*, yet the TV remains on. I wish we could find a knowledgable tech who could diagnose this. Certainly this much information would lead him/her to a solution. I have heard it might be the flyback transformer, which does have a lead that goes to the C board. Possibly the flyback is not within output limits and the C board is initiating the shut down. Doesn't make sense though, because the power supplies are on the D board. Whew. Who knows? Anyway... I'll keep you posted with any info I gain, and I'd appreciate the same from you.

Cheers,

Sean

THERE ARE STEPS TO FOLLOW, TROUBLEING FAULTING, CONNECT A METER AVO AND SET IT ON AMPS IN SERIES WITH OUT PUT, OF A POWER SUPPLY, THIS SHOULD BE OPEN CIRCUIT, I MEAN CUT A POWER LINE INTO A LOAD. AFTER THAT START ISOLATING SEMI CONDUCTORS ONE BY ONE, SEMI CONDUCTORS ARE COMPONENTS LIKE, DIODES, IC AND TRANSISTORS. A FAULT WILL BE FOUND

Actually, I don't think your problem is a matter of buttons pushed on a couple of remotes at all. I looked around the web and noted several instances that instructors may have confused readers, including those of the notably confusing user manual, as to how many of the multiple video inputs can be used simultaneously, and I believe you should choose the highest fidelity video input, whether optical or even composite, since your symptoms seem those of a situation where several video inputs
are superimposed one upon another, which is an absolute no-no, and can ruin your video amplifier.

Check for multiple video input hookups before you burn out the vid-amp.

SOURCE: my sharp tv runs normal for the first 2 to 5

Hi,
A good tech can find out what is wrong with the set. The power supply has a protection mode which causes the shutdown. Also, there is a memory chip that a Sharp repair center can connect to and read out the fault history. A shop that talks about replacing a board is not a good place to go to. You need a shop that can isolate the malfunctioning parts and replace the part at the circuit level, not at the board level.
Try this site for a repair shop near you:

Pls rate my suggestion.........

SOURCE: My Vip 612, when recording more than one channel

I would call for a technician to come out as it appears the receiver may have been incorrectly set up or is malfunctioning. I suspect that you have a Dish Pro LNB and are using one line into the 612 which uses DPP technology. The short of it is the two are only compatible if two lines are ran to the receiver and the seperator is eliminated. Without being there to test the system end to end it is all speculation. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Four blinks to Sony CRT based standard televisions are not due the fault to any fan, as there is no fan inside any CRT based Sony TVs. Four blinks denotes this. Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505 Check for this fault. If you wish to get more http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by its left side bar, or view it in Timslide option. Blinking codes and faults to many televisions are described in detail.

I've found a link from Sony that has your owner's manual for that set.
I found on page 56 of this file a section on trouble shooting that covers your problem.

Tripping a circuit breaker (by any device) is an issue that is not easily (safely) addressed on-line. Besides an actual problem with the device in question, one must consider: a) Too many high current devices already on the circuit (toasters, microwaves, washing machines, etc.) that contribute/cause the issue. b) A circuit breaker that trips much more easily than it should (from tripping too much - common problem), and should be replaced.
c) The device in question needs the compressor replaced (very rare in a two-year old device), but can become damaged during shipment - on it's side. d) Damaged sub-component (eg. one of the fans), probably easily found by locating the source of the noise.

Vertical fold over


if the set has a previous vertical line problem and a white horizental line only comes in the cross of the screen and you turned the tv on for a time while the problem is solved that mean you have make a burnt line to the screen , but if you are the tv owner and nothing of that happens so you have a problem in faulty dried capaciter in the vertical live part search for 33uf 160 v or 22u 160 v and alter regards please don't forget to rate thx
