Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television
BRAND NEW TV. JUST TOOK IT OUT OF THE BOX. PLUGGED IT IN AND TURNED IT ON. THE GREEN POWER LIGHT CAME ON FOR 2 SECONDS AND THEN SWITCHED TO RED FLASHING STANDBY LIGHT. FLASHES 13 TIMES, PAUSES AND THEN FLASHES 13 TIMES AGAIN. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME AN IDEA AS TO WHAT THE PROBLEM IS?
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!
Please rate my response!

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.

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...

Most likely this is caused by a defective main board. Changing the main board will fix the issue about 95% of the time.
To be absolutely sure, the voltages need to be checked on the power supply. If they are not the values listed in the service manual, then you should replace the power supply instead (accounts for the other 5% of the time).

Just had Best Buy's Geek Squad in to rectify this problem.They replaced the whole panel and the yellowing still appeared. Thankfully under extended warranty. Going into Best Buy today to replace the TV.
