Sony Bravia KDL46HX820 powers off and throws 4 blink and pause error

Y-day we were watching a movie and suddenly switches off by itself and then the red light led blinks four times and pauses and then blinks again. I tried to power off and on but no use. I called the customer support and they asked me to contact a nearest service center. Has anyone faced the issue and whats the solution.How bad is the issue.Can this be repaired? How long these Sony guys will take. After repair will it be stable? How costly will the services costs be ?

Those 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 section 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 procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

SOURCE: Power LED blinks red

it is a bad fan. it also could be a power supply. Quite often the real problem is dirt clogging up the fan(s) to the point that they need to be replaced. Operation of the set in a dirty environment is not a good idea

SOURCE: Four blinking red lights.

you can have the inverter board replaced...instead of the entire panel.
KDL 40S2010: inverter part # 178950032, you will also need 2 spacers..part # 289765511
you're looking @ 200-300$ for the inverter and 5-10$ a piece for the spacers.

KDL-46V2500: inverter part # A1251295B
you're looking @ around 500-600 $ for the part

Either on of the backlight inverter boards is bad or a backlight has failed inside the panel.

SOURCE: sony bravia KDL40S2000 standby blink four times

A 4 flash issue means either the back light inverter (power supply) has failed or that one of the fluorescent tubes in the panel has failed. The only way to know for sure is to check the fuses that are on the inverter board. If one or more of the fuses are opne, then it is likely the inverter board is bad. If the fuses all check good, then the panel is at fault. If it is the inverter board, it is a part you could replace yourself; the cost of the board is about $70. If it is the panel, you would probably want to consider replacing the TV, as the repair costs would be over $1000

SOURCE: Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times

Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

The red standby light flashes in the code of 4 times then pauses then 4 times then pauses


Five times blinks to Sony Bravia is related with an IRK error. It is related to its main digital board. In most cases, the main board might need replacement. It will be best to contact the authorized service center for Sony. If you're sound in electronics, check the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by type in the model name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic /Timeslide option.

1year 2months old Sony Bravia KDL46HX820 powers on for few seconds ; I see black clouds on the top left corner ; TV switches off and 4 red lights blink ; Please advice on what might be the issue


No Vertical Sync is the fault. This is a main board fault. The main board might need replacement. But before confirming, check all the voltages comes to the main board from the power regulator board. If you wish to know more about the voltages and their sources, check this link.

Tele turned itself off, red light blinks 4 times then pauses and blinks 4 times again.


You can try unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in, but according to the manual, the standby LED:
Lights up red when your TV is in PC power saving mode. If the LED blinks in red continuously, this may indicate the TV needs servicing.

My Sony Bravia will play for less than a minute and then reverts to standy. Any suggestions?


Please unplug tv from wall socket for minute or so,, replug back in and turn it On.
If tv still goes to standby itself than its standby light would blink to show an error in somewhere inside tv circuits.
Let me know how many times standby red light blinking? There would be 3 seconds long pause in blinking so count pause to pause to determine problem section.
Thanks.

My Sony Bravia turns itself off Stand by red light blinks twice.


If you bought it brand new from a dealer, I would take it back or have them come out and look at it. Less than a month old, it is still under the 1 year MFG warranty or the very best a 30 day one.
