Question about Sony KDS-55A3000 55" HDTV

1 Answer

Sony kds 55a3000 sound but no picture

Green light blinks for about 10 seconds and then sound comes through with no picture. No error codes or strange sounds. I have tested voltage to ballast (397V) and replaced the bulb. If the ballast is bad I would get an error code of red blinking lights or clicking and buzzing correct? This is really frustrating and any help is greatly appreciated.

    I tested the voltage to ballast and it was a few volts low. 395-397V Would this cause the no picture problem? The bulb is a brand new phillips. No error lights or sounds is making it hard to diagnose. Someone please help. Thanks

    Well,, maybe? Brand new Phillips bulb from reputable supplier. I can see why you would say that considering no error code, noise or other indication of problem. Sound with no picture would indicate bulb or ballast right? Bulb or ballast problems would result in an error code right? I'll put the bulb in another TV to test it and let you know. Thanks

Straightv from the SONY service manual

  • 2 times, Diagnosis: B overcurrent (OCP). Possible causes: H. OUT (Q8024) is shorted. (D board), +B PWM (Q8035, 8038) is shorted. (D board) Symptoms of the problem: Power does not come on, Load on power line is shorted.

  • This is not DIY stuff and is dangerous to play around with. I suggest you get a tech to fix it rather than opening it up and doing it yourself. Also dont keep turning it on in the hope it will start. It is more likely to start a fire if it begins to overheat from being constantly started and left plugged in.UNPLUG it

    Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

    I have the same problem with my unit. I've been removing the bulb and just replace it back and unit will work again. I probably need to vacuum or check the fan out too.

    On model#Sony Bravia RDL46SL140 when you turn tv on green on light comes on for a few seconds then red light comes on and blinks. no picture or sound.


    These 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. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy.

    Mitsubishi ws65713 picture goes out


    I know these sets well, you lose brightness but still have sound?

    If the green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes out the set has a self check for error codes:

    UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

    PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and "menu" buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


    Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

    1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

    2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

    2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

    2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

    2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


    ******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


    SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


    IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
    CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

    let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and two blinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

    Green power light blinks, and TV comes on, and goes out, and power light goes red


    Sounds like a problem with the power supply. After it shuts off do any other lights blink, apart from power LED turning red? Please provide this info as it is a self-diagnostic code that will help identify the problem.
