Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS500 36" TV

1 Answer

Sony wega trinitron won't turn on

Our tv worked fine until last night. Now, it won't turn on. It is receiving power and the tv tries to click on; but the screen doesn't get that
static-y sound. Then, five red blinks (4 blinks and a very short 5th blink, actually), and ... nothing. The TV is a Sony FD Trinitron Wega, Model # KV-32XBR400. Thanks.

  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
  • 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.

    What to do when your Toshiba 55TL515U powers on, works fine for a few hours, then suddenly turns off, and then continues to click as if it is turning on and off again?

    I have a Sony WEGA KDE-42XS955 that takes 5 minutes for the picture to appear. Once it appears..works great! If I just leave it turned for it will work fine. Any idea what board needs to be replaced?


    The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

    My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


    More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.
