The jungle chip is the main IC processor. It is very complicated and has hundreds of circuits surrounding its complexity.

Six blinks is a diagnostic code for loss of horizontal sweep. Thus there is no raster and no high voltage.

Cure requires a look at the jungle chip and the horizontal synch signal to see where it got lost. Cost of repair is not so much unless the jungle chip must be replaced which is rare, but very expensive.

A good repair place can fix it quickly and under $100 so beware of who works on it.

Red light flashes six times


6 blink's means H stop or Horizontal Drive failure. Check the Jungle and its soldering connection terminals for possible bad soldering or loose connection. In some cases jungle ic found defective.also check your horizontal drive transformer windings and connection that is connected at the base of horizontal output transistor. Open winding or loose connection would result to absence of horizontal drive at the base of horizontal output transistor..

Every part has its unique reference number on schematics and PCB of TV installed.

C515 means Capacitor # 515 and IC206 means Integrated Circuit # 206 mounted on PCB and shown in related schematics.

Jungle IC is technical term used in Sony and Panasonic refers to sync, oscillators, drive stages for horizontal and vertical deflection stages in a TV.

Need further info, let me know.

Repost last comment on pt-47wx53g problem


Hi, I post here my last comment, follow the diagram at page 44, leave the checkup at page 16, for some of the test you need raster, and the TV is in protection mode now.
From protection mode follow troubleshooting diagrams, I think is page 44/45.
There are many faulty component that can give you blank screen with no raster, the strange things is that the TV stays on, has sound and is not on protect.

Test also the sygnal boards (the ones with the AV connectors) and see if it makes any difference switching the signal to a different input, this TV has several ICs that manage the video signal, testing blindly will give no help. Follow the diagrams on manual.


I think the following was my last comment:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

You need to follow the troubleshooting charts at page 44 of user manual.
(download the service manual here)

Regarding the jungle chip, that is just a familiar name for the main computer CPU, service manuals rarely call it Jungle chip. Your jungle Chip is the main processor, IC4511, be careful handling the component arount the IC4511, some IC in there is sensible to static charges in your hands, better to keep fingers away.

In your case I would start testing following the diagram at page 44 of SM. I will also test the pico fuses at the base of convergence ICs, if the STKs had been replaced
That is what you do when the nature of the problem is not clear.

Since there is no protection mode on, the fault
can concern IC3001 and IC3002 that are vidio processors, and other parts involved.
If at any point you get the led on, and TV going in protect mode, with a flashing led, that is a step forward, means that the jungle IC (The IC4511) had detected the fault.

Start testing following the procedure at page 44, or same page on your version of service manual.

FLASHING RED LIGHT


Constant blinking usually infers there is trouble in the jungle ic chip. If that is so in your set the replacement of the jungle chip is quite expensive. More than $150. Probably not a wise investment for a 5 year old set.

The "call for service" is another sign the problem is more than minor.

So, without knowing more I think you are going to be better off by taking a trip to Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City or Ultimate Electronics and start looking over the new stuff.

You know, I don't have any personal experience with Durabrand tvs, but I was in Walmart today and playing with the controls on one of their sets. After I got it optimized (in the store they always set them up with maximum color and brightness) it was the best looking picture in the store - even better than Sony. The one I was looking at was only a 20 inch for $89, but I was duly impressed with it. Walmart has a Durabrand 27 inch set for $168, which is a good price if the picture is as good as the 20 incher that I was playing with!! Just a thought.

SONY KP-57HW40 TUNS OFF AND STANDBY LIGHT BLINKS 6 TIMES


6 blinks is usually associated with failure of the horizontal deflection amplifier - which shuts down the high voltage system as well.

The repair requires testing to determine the exact parts that have failed. There are, for example, a few hundred parts and a section of the Jungle IC chip involved. So, repairs could require something as simple as replacing some inexpensive passive components OR as complicated as replacing the jungle chip (very expensive).

most of the time it's the horz. transformer and transistor.
