No picture and 6 blinks

When the TV is turned on, there is no picture and the standby light blinks 6 times. On the service manual it states as an overload or short of the +5 line on the A,B boards. What do I need to replace?

    There are no connection problems - maybe a shorted IC? Please someone help me to check if there are bad ICs and how to replace them.

    How do I test them? I cannot find C515 or C516 - on what board would they be on - A board?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, your concern as you posted, the +5 is not being detected. This as you posted further could be the A,B boards. While this sound relatively simple, it could mean a variety of other things:

  • power supply failing to deliver the standby voltage, the +5, or even the 'DD 6V' Output (GM board );
  • other components/boards are clamping the +5
  • the G board is shutting down accompanied by arcing sounds.
This of course would require a fair 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 (Sony KP-46WT510 RA6 chassis). 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.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,
   When led blinks 6 times it means number of problems could be happend in it.And where the problem persists,This must be to define.So,+5  means that you have to check the path of +5 line.

There must be components which could be minor which is most probebly be the capacitors or Could be the Power ic.First check all the capacitors at +5 line.If not then must be the IC causing problem.

   Thanks

From the service manual : Six Blinks: No Horizontal, No Raster, Check C515, C516 & Jungle Ic206.

The component to be tested are on digital board.

This is the correct information , grab the diagrams on service manual and test the components.

Source (one of many) here.

    Ginko Nov 25, 2008

    They are on D board, test also Jungle Ic206.

    To test ICs you dont check continuity, you need to take voltages out, this is not a repair for a neofite.

    Call a technician, that is the best choice, or buy the service manual if you want to do it yourself.

The set has detected a problem internally and does not "start" to precvent further damage. I would check the horizontal output transistor for a shorted condition as this is the most common failure part. This is a 3-legged part attached to a heat sink close to the flyback transformer (part with red wire coming out of the top)

    The "D" board should be labeled. Look on the boards and you should see
    large letters. In the meantime, look closely at the solder
    connections and resolder any the appear grainy or have rings. That
    will eliminate any connection issues that could complicate the
    diagnosis process. Update this with anything you find. I'll look up
    your model and get you the specific parts that may be at fault.

  • mohammed marika thambi

    The different blink codes suggest that there are connection problems
    within the set and that you are seeing diferent problems each time.
    Can you solder? If so, resolder any connections you find that appear
    grainy or have rings

  • mohammed marika thambi

    have not been able to find a listing for your set from Sony. It may be
    a derivative set made specifically for one retailer and as such is only
    listed by its parent model. Be that as it may, if you have any
    experience withelectronics, I would first check the Hosrizontal Output
    Transistor for a short condition.

    Please count the number of blinks of the standby light. There should
    be a count from 1-10 or so then a pause, then the count again repeated.
    Post that here. This is the code from internal diagnostics and
    indicates the problem area

    This set may have a couple of problems. First, if you can solder, look
    for any connections on the CRT board (on the neck of the CRT) and the
    main board that look grainy or have rings and resolder them. Hopefully
    that will take care of the green problem. Next, try turning up the
    screen control on the flyback transformer. This should be the top
    control on the transformer. Turn it just a bit. If the flashing
    stops, then you have temporarily cured the problem. The picture tube
    is starting to fail. By turning up the screen control, you will have
    bought yourself time to find a replacement.

    Keep me posted on what you find.

    The most common cause of this is bad convergence ICs. These are large
    black ICs attached to a heatsink. They should be marked STKxxx. Try
    resoldering the pins on these first.


    installing a new lamp. If the lamp has failed, the set may do this.
    When the lamp hours have been exceeded, the indicator would be solid.
    The least expensive repair attempt at this point would be to replace
    the lamp.

  • mohammed marika thambi
    mohammed marika thambi Nov 24, 2008

    If you have sound, try turning up the screen control on the flyback
    transformer just a bit. See if the picture comes back. The flyback is
    the large part with the red wire coming out of the top.

    Update this with the results. , , , , , , , p

LOW B OCP/OVP (Overcurrent/over voltage). Possible causes: +5 line is overloaded. (A, B boards), +5 line is shorted. (A, B boards).

You need to check the boards . And check whether the connections are proper (with proper soldering)

MY SONY TV MODEL # KF42-WE610 IS SOUND IS COMING ON BUT NO PICTURE


If you turn it on and the, Power/Standby green light blinks slow 6 times; then it becomes a red fast blink 6 times, pause, then continues to blink red fast 6 times, again and again. this means when it's blinking 6 times is indication of electrical circuitry malfunction. The Television will need service.

Red standby light came on and no picture sound is ok .Next. time tv came on it played approx one hour everthing ok. then the picture gradually faded away . Red standby light came on again. Still no...


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

Sony LCD KF-50WE610 no picture-red light blinking


3 times standby red light blinking shows that lamp cover has not been placed back properly after lamp replacement.
Make sure lamp cover, (the first thing that you removed to replace lamp in tv) is fixed securely then turn tv On.

Turn off after a few hours


If the TV turn itself off then perform the following steps:

(i) Check if the Sleep timer is activated.

(ii) Check if the Parental Guide prohibits viewing during that time and/or limits amount of viewing time per day.

(iii) Check the batteries on your remote, low battery power may cause random signals from the remote.

(iv) Disconnect all the cables from the TV then reconnect them after a few hours.

(v) Ensure the power cord from the TV is directly connected to a functional wall outlet.

(vi) You may also try resetting the TV to the original factory settings by pressing the Reset button on the remote control supplied with the TV when in Menu.

The following is the information indicated by the blinking patter of the standby/timer lamp on the TV:

2 times : Power does not come on.
Load on power line shorted.

3 times : The TV has entered standby mode.

4 times : Has entered standby state after
horizontal raster.
Vertical deflection pulse is
stopped.
Power line is shorted, or
power supply is stopped.

5 times: No raster is generated.
CRT Cathode current detection
reference pulse output is small.

6 times: No picture

9 times : No sound

Furthermore, the TV is equipped with a self-diagnosis function that you can use to determine whether the issue is related to any hardware malfunctioning. Perform the step given below to run self diagnosis:

Quickly press the remote command button in the following order from the standby state.

Display -------> Channel 5 ---------> Volume -(minus) --------> Power ON.

If the Self Diagnosis display numeral "1" for any parameters then a fault has been detected and service will be required.

TV won't stay on, Standby blinks 10 times


Its sort of silly, but my father got behind the tv and smacked it. The error message went away, and the tv is working fine now.
It wasn't easy for him to get behind it though, it's rather tall and weighs 234lbs.
I did manage to find a pdf file of the repair manual for this model at Techlore.com.
