Sony bravia KDL40S2000 standby blink four times

We have a 2006 model. Approximately how much are we to expect to pay to have this TV repaired? Thanks for any info you have to offer. We tried the unplugging thing after calling Sony service but it didn't correct itself.

    What do you mean by "fuses are opne" and how can we tell if they are?

    Can you give us any more information if we were to tell you that after unplugging it for a few minutes and plugging it back in, the power will come on for about 5 seconds with sound only and then it goes to standby again? Thanks for responding.

A 4 flash issue means either the back light inverter (power supply) has failed or that one of the fluorescent tubes in the panel has failed. The only way to know for sure is to check the fuses that are on the inverter board. If one or more of the fuses are opne, then it is likely the inverter board is bad. If the fuses all check good, then the panel is at fault. If it is the inverter board, it is a part you could replace yourself; the cost of the board is about $70. If it is the panel, you would probably want to consider replacing the TV, as the repair costs would be over $1000

    The fuses are small yellow tubular devices with wires coming out of each end. They are mounted on the backlight inverter board and must be checked using some type of continuity tester, such as an ohmmeter. If the fuses read infinite resistance they are open. If they check shorted they are good.

    The fact that the set comes on really doesn't offer any clues as to whether the panel or the inverter is bad. Could I ask you to reconsider the rating you gave me for the solution?

Sony Bravia showing 4 red blinks any idea what this means, fault?


These 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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

My flat screen tv shuts off and standby led blinks 13 times.


Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"

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 KDL-40V3000 standby blinks 13 times.


A service technician arrived at my home this morning and infromed me that 13 blinks indicates a bad LCD panel. His quote to repair it was approximately $500 more than the TV initially cost. I contacted Sony support directly, and they have agreed to replace the TV, since it is less than 30 days out of warranty. The KDL40V3000 has apparently been dicontinued so they are replacing with a KDL40V4100(factory reconditioned). I know this won't necessarily help others with the same problem, but if your warranty ended recently enough they will probably work with you to mitigate the expense.

Four blinking red lights.


Either on of the backlight inverter boards is bad or a backlight has failed inside the panel.

No picture and no sound just a blinking stand by light on front of my sony kdl40s2000 lcd tv


I have a Sony KDL40S2000 and three months out of manufacturer warranty my TV made a clicking noise similar to feedback in a bad sound system and went to black screen. The error was not recoverable and four blinking lights were seen by a technician. I bought the extended warranty from my store, so I was covered. After one month in the shop, the technician brought my TV back today and told me the panel was replaced which would have cost me 1000 dollars if I wasn't covered by the store warranty. I read on another site the four flashing lights can mean a bad inverter. I don't know enough about TVs to tell you if the panel and inverter are one in the same, I just know you need to get it repared if you get four blinking lights at a huge cost!
