    I have the same problem, only the flashes come in groups of 4. What does this mean? Also, if it is the BU board, where can i get one, or how can i fix it? I hope you can help me out.

Hello,

There is some confusion on the model (KDL-40W500 vs. KDL-40V2500), so I will direct this toward the 40V2500.

On the KDL-40V2500, an 8X blink means the scan processer has gone bad, and the BU board needs to be replaced. If the problem is intermittent, the the AU board might be the problem, but if it all the time, bank on the BU.

A competent repair shop should be able to help you, or you can try calling Sony directly for assitance.

Hope this helps you...

My sony bravia kdl-32s3000 keeps turning off and the standby light is flashing 5 times


Just a copy from Sony:
5X Blink - TCON & HFR Failure
The 5X blink protection mode indicates a communications error between the TCON/HFR board and the MT5388 microprocessor on the A-Board. First replace the TCON/HFR Board if the 5X protection mode blink pattern occurs. If the TCON/HFR Board does not repair the problem then replace the A-Board.

Standby mode


Standby power supply runs 7/24 and this should indicate it is not allowing main power supply and hence the set to turn on= short someplace is most likely issue.

Does red light blink and in a sequence of blinks?

My Sony Bravia KDL-26S3000 won't turn on and is stuck in standby.


Hi,

There is a power fault with one of the PCB's inside, contact Sony if you are still in warranty, if not contact a Sony service center as it will need an engineer to open it up to repair it.

Thanks

This sounds like a power source problem! (faulty transformer) I would pack it up and take it back for a new one!
This is a problem you can not fix yourself unless your a pro!

Sony Bravia KDL-40W4500 turns off


This can indicate a problem with the high voltage circuits. Since this is a new set, it should still be under warranty. DO NOT open up the unit as that will void the warranty. Return the set or request warranty service. Note the 8 blinks when you request service as that should allow them to bring the correct replacement parts.

Keep us posted.
