    I have the same problem, 4 blinking lights and no picture. I took the back off to look for the backlight inverter. What does it look like and do you have a website where I can purchase the parts needed? Thank you

A 4 flash shutdown indicates a backlight problem. It can be acused by a bad backlight inverter board (the backlight power supply) or by a defective backlight in the panel. There are fuses on the backlight inverter board called "picofuses" which will need to be checked in order to isolate the problem to the board or the panel. If the fuses are good, you have to replace the panel (very expensive!). If the fuses are opne, most likely the back light inverter board has failed.

Hi,
4 blinks indicated of backlight malfunction. The unit shutsdown to avoid overload to the inverter board.
Check the backlights, busted backlight has a physical indication of fault like blackened end, crack end. You must replaced the busted one and your unit will back to normal operation again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My tv shut off by itself & the standby lights flashes 4x in red


The four blink pattern indicates inverter failure. Since there are different inverter boards for this model (depending on the serial number), I recommend that you take your TV to an authorized Sony servicer for repair.

Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times


Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

Normal picture mode make the sharper picture quality but smaller screen apparance


If the broadcast is in 4:3 (square) then either you can have the black bars on the side, or the TV can stretch the image to fill the screen.
Nothing wrong with your set. The broadcast must be in 16:9 to fil the screen.
