Re: Sony blinking standby light

This is Sony's way of telling you that there is a short in you set.Probably the horizontal deflection circuit.(Horizontal output transistor shorted??). Also any other short. You need to take it to a techincian and have it checked out. It would be wise to get an estimate! Stargazer

Tv will not stay on standby timer light flashing

On Sony the standby or red is for shutdown---

If you unplug the set and plug it back and turn it on and it repeats this look to see if the light is either constantly blinking or blinking a specific number of blinks---specific number would be an error code.

If your set is the KV-24FS120, then the standby light should blink with a repeated pattern. Count the blinks and post that number here. It is a diagnostic code that will indicate the defective circuit. Having that information will allow us to suggest repair options.
