    I have this problem now also. For a little while the tv has turned on and instantly turned back off. Now all I get is the tv attempting to turn on but then the standby light keeps blinking and it still does not turn on. I noticed the light blinks 6 times and pauses continuously. I wonder if that means anything, I havent found my manual yet.

The 5 blinks can indicate a picture tube starting to fail. Carefully open up the back and look for the flyback transformer. It will be the part with the large red wire coming out the top that goes to the side of the picture tube. There should be 2 controls on the flyback, screen and focus. Turn the screen control slightly clockwise. If the set stays on, the picture tube is starting to fail and you have bought yourself time to find a replacement. If that fails, then you will need to investigate other possibilities that will involve soldering. Let me know if you need to do that.

The 6 blinks indicate no horiszontal. This can be as simple as a couple of bad capacitors or the "jungle" IC. If you can solder, please post another question with the model and a brief description indicating that you can work in the set and we'll continue to track this down.

Thanks,
Dan

Sony lcd red blinks 6


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 stage 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, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Wont turn on red blinking light


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/. If the blinks continues, and non-stop, the fault should be with its main system control IC, and with the memory IC.

I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 that has no picture. When I turn on the TV, the green Power/Standby LED light blinks for about 30 seconds, then turns red and blinks five times. The Power/Standby LED repeats...


  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen A2 slightly.
