Blinking Standby Light

TV trys to come on but won't and standby light blinks in random amounts.

tv will not power on standby light blinks randomly My Sony KV32HS550 will not power on. After it sets for about 8 hours it may come on. I also tried unplugging the power from the power strip and plugged directly into wall. I was told this might reset the TV because the power strip was over burdened or old and had low voltage. It did not work..

That is because the tv had detected an internal error and now it is in protect mode, unplug the power first.

    The TV is in this state because the main IC has detected an internal problem, such as a blown component, a short, a bad voltage, a faulty IC etc.

    When the fault is detected a safety switch will keep the TV off to prevent further damage, and the tv stays in standby, sometimes, depending on the model, with an error message.

    Sure, the only simple trick that you can try is unplugging the power cable, the so called hard reset.

    The rest requires a technician taking apart the TV, testing the boards and replacing the faulty component.

    I was checking the specs, the KV-32 is still a nice TV set , it surely worth repair, call a local, and see if it is possible having the job done under $200.

    Parts that go often faulty are the power supply capacitors, the deflection yoke and the convergence ICs.

Sony wega kdf42we655 power led blinking red


If lamp light is on at tv front then replace lamp as existing lamp sounds dead/ broken.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual of tv.
And if lamp light is not on but standby light is blinking then let me know how many times it is blinking to find out problem cause as standby light blinking is an error code.

Standby light stays on and the tv will not go on


Please check batteries in remote that seems not working. Sony TV would either turns On or standby light will blinks if TV gets any internal problem.
You question shows standby light stays On that means TV does not receive power on command from remote.
If standby light is blinking in sequence, let me know how many times it is blinking and also intimate exact model number of TV to find out possible solution.
Thanks.

Sony Trinitron Wega Standby blinks & the TV won't turn on


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, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
