Sony Trinitron XBR - won't turn on

Hi - read your post.

Same problem here - try to turn it on - makes the typical TV sound - then blinks sometimes 4x - sometimes 6x -- then goes into standby mode.

We live in the San Fernando Valley area. Would like to see if we can get this fixed for a reasonable cost (instead of the $1500 to $2000 we were going to spend on a new TV)

Can you help?
Thanks

Four blinks means vertical scan issues and six blinks means line stage issues. I would repair the power supply first as if the HT fails to start, the software won't know whether line or field has failed and may bring up both codes at random.
Probably just dry capacitors.

SOURCE: stuck in standby

The 4 blinks indicate a vertical deflection problem. Either the connections on the legs of the vertical IC are bad or the IC is defective. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll provide more details and instructions.

Hello,
There are 3 reasons for 4 blinls
1.unit went to stand by mode because of h-pulse
2.Vertical defflection pulse stopped
3. power line is shhorted or power supply is stoped.

Solution:
1. check 13vdc on A board of powersupply stage

SOURCE: 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.

14 times means the LCD panel is defective. I just had one of those tvs in my shop. Sony will take care of the panel replacement in warranty.

My sony trinitron xbr won't come on when the remote iis pressed it only clicks.. no picture or sound


Your problem could be any one of the boards in the set. When a flat screen attemps to turn on, but finds an internal problem, it defaults by clicking off to keep the remaining circuits and boards from buring up. You'le have to take the tv to a shop. Sorry that I can't be of more assistance.

My sony trinitron xbr tv turns on stays on a few seconds then powers off by its self and it gives 5 red blinks from stand-by


This is according to the sony service manual

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 slightly.

Sounds like a failure in the C Board or AKB Circuit.

Best to take it in to a service center.

Sony Trinitron XBR, Stand By Mode?


Generically, the 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem with the horizontal circuit. In order to provide accurate diagnosis and suggested solutions, the exact model number is needed. Please update this with tha number and I will post more details.

Thanks,
Dan

Sony Trinitron KV36XBR300


Best thing to do is get 3-4 people to haul it to the curb. That is a high voltage failure which can be related to a bad tube or flyback. That TV is too old to get parts for and not worth spending a single dime on.

Sony Trinitron XBR, Stand By Mode?


The 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem in the horizontal circuit. Since the TV recovered once, the problem is most likely to be a bad solder connection in that area. If you can solder, resolder any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. That may resolve the problem. If not, update this and we'll look elsewhere for defective parts.
