Sony Wega KV-32FS120 wont turn on (5 blinks)

Ok first off I did tons of research on google and this site and I have found many posts on this 5 blink problem, but no responses from people saying if they tried it or if it worked. The problem started after little squirt (2 years old) was pressing the button over and over.

Ill give my detail run down of what happends when i turn the tv on. First you get that "thong" charge sound, like the tube is charging, but it sounds a little more short then usual and the crt doesnt turn on. Then the light blinks 5 times, pause, then 3 times. This i beleive isnt the important blinks. After the initial 5-3 blink, I wait about 30 seconds and it jumps into the 5-pause-5-pause-5 blinking. No picture at all.

Now i've seen a post on this forum that the person explains that this problem is the tube isnt getting power, so that the problem might be from the power supply area. Also since the power button was pushed repedatly im thinking this makes sence.

Either way im willing to try stuff out. I studied electronics in college, with my computer degree, and am currently doing a correspondance course in electrnics, so i know my way around. Im prety good in theory but havent had allot of hours hands on.

Any suggestiongs on what to look at? And should i discharge anything else then just the tube?

    I had the same problem. If there is a prob with powersupply the system goes into this mode. You need to give it a technician, he needs to fix the transformer in the system. After changing the trans he would have to chk the amp rating, it could fail 3 to 4 times till he gets the right one. As this is 32 inch it consumes lots of power so he needs to balance the amp else the tube can be knocked out.

I have the Samsung model: LN46E550F6FXZA, I can hear it power on, the red light on the front blinks 5 times then goes off. There is no sound or picture.

You will need to have it repaired, looks like the inverter board is broken. Google Samsung tv blinks 5 times, there's tons of threads.

Sony wega kv-32FQ86B flashing light

These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can vet an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

I have a sony kds50a2000 and it wont turn on at all. When i do try to turn on the green light blinks many times then its followed by the red lamp light blinking continuously and wont stop blinking unless i...

You should Google the model number with "problems" as there are several sites with good information on this set.

I would suspect this model does not have a color wheel but if it does it would be suspect number one.

Sets that use a wheel that turns at 12,000 rpm will fail. I would (if I was working on the set ) take rear cover off and try to localize where the sound is coming from) Likely: the ballast that powers the lamp will buzz sometimes when bad or lamp is bad.

Remove lamp and inspect to see it is not shattered.

A fan (one on the lamp) could cause this but rarely.

Look, listen, and do some research with Google.

last resort Call Sony with model number (expect them to tell you take it to shop--usual response)

We are about to install a a new central heating & air conditioning unit in the family home where my brother lives. It has a 4 ton now. Can we up grade to a 5 ton? One dealer says yes- another says too...

Hi, go with the 5 ton unit. 12,000 btu's are not going to cause moisture or mold!! I have done this for 33 years, do know what I am talking about and would not steer you in the wrong direction. Go with the 5 ton unit, and remember this for some knoledge from me to you. For every ton of cooling, there are 12,000 btu's. You will find this number in the model number of the outdoor unit if it is a split, or on the pack unit data plate. Look for 060 on a 5 ton, and 048 on a 4 ton unit. Please rate me on this post and keep me posted on the out come.

What type of oil would i use for my 2004 jeep grand cherokee?

The manufacturer generally recommends a 10w-30 oil. That's fine except that after years of research I've found that using a 20w 40 or a full synthetic with the same or better numbers is far better.
Without a long explanation of why, I'll just say that it is far superior as far as being thermally stable and resistant to mechanical shear and contamination while it offers less friction at all moving or sliding internal parts. You can look up noac volitility tests on google for more tech info.
I use synthetics in all my vehicles including race cars and have never had an oil related breakdown ever. My street engines last well over 300 thousand miles!!!
Additives like lucas and marvel oil are good but mostly unnecessary with synthetics. You will likely get a ton of responses on this but my info is proven and valid!!!
Good luck with your Jeep!!
