1 Answer

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.

    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?

Most likely a power supply or convergence failure. Repairs may be in order Expect to pay $250 and up for a repair. But try, first, disconnecting the power cord for a few hours before turning on again. This sometimes resets the internal circuit errors. Worth a try.

Most larger parts stores carry either chilton or haynes manuals. They are far from perfect and their wiring diagrams are pretty much junk, but overall the do have enough info for most basic and some not so basic repairs. Chilton also offers a download for pay which is better but unless you are doing major complex repair work, likely you won't need it.

New timer?

Depending on the model of washer, you can expect to pay anywhere between £120.00 to £200.00 inc labour.
They are not cheap to replace, so think carefully about spending a large amount on a repair, more so if you have had the washer for a good while.
Please my comments.

The washer will spin, but the water does not go out. Approximately how much should I expect to pay for a repair?

If it is the drain screen like I was thinking.
If it is the control panel or a sensor, it could be around $250 also
