    My stand by light goes on 6 times in a row, but it's also keeping the television from turning on.

To wayne: The balancer board is in fact available by itself. You can get it at many different parts depots here on the web. I just suffered from a similar problem, on the same tv and it solved my problem perfectly (Stupid 13 blink, blink code...)

The searchable part number is SSB400WA20. Its referred to as a voltage inverter (for the backlight of the lcd panel.)
Good luck!!!

Hello,

Unfortunately, this is a failure of the balancer board for the backlight. The unfortunate part is that the balancer is not available by itself anymore, and the whole panel must be replaced, as Sony only has the balancers attached to new panels. You can contact Sony directly to ask for assistance, and it usually helps.

Hope this helps you...

How to fix problem with Sony TV.When turn on sony Bravia TV KDL-40V3000. It comes on and then turns off,


I just fixed one with the same problem. The light flashed 13 times.
I had to cut one trace on the hv board to one of the lamp drivers.
There is a slight but barely noticeable darken line across the screen but the tv stays on now and the picture is good. I don't
know if the lamps can be replaced but why bother now.

Sony Bravia KDL-40V3000 standby light blinking


I just worked on this last week 13 blinks means there is a problem with the backlights.So it can be 1 of 2 things bad inverter board( which costs less than $200) or the panel in which case you can thow the TV away as it will probably cost as much for a new TV.Unfortunately the set I worked on ended up being panel. If you try the inverter board just take your time removing it its plugged in rather tight I gently tapped it out with a screwdriver to get it started.

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.
