Many of the later model Sony TV?s have a built in self-diagnosis function. AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks 5 times for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. In other words, the IC chips on the Cboard are burned out. This repair is not one that should be attempted by the end user. This repair will need special test equipment. You will need to take it in for repair. It shouldn't cost more than $170-$200. This is cheaper than a new TV set.

Hi,

May I know what is the exact model number of your TV, it is located at the rear cover, manual, and on the receipt. It will help diagnose accurately where the fault came from and confirm the blinking error code.

Samsung lns4041dx/xaa tv takes a long time to turn on the red LED light blinks 3 times then disappears - then LED light comes on again repeats the process for about 7 - 10 minutes then the TV turns on. ...


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.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

3 blinks is the error code for the convergence ICs. You need to replace both STK392-110 convergence ICs. You can get replacement ICs at the following link and they provide installation instructions with pictures.

Sony Wega kv27FV310 standby flashes 2 times with no picture or sound


3 years ago, i had the same problem with a samsung 36", when i switched it on it would stay on for around half an hour, i tried to switch on straight away, but it wouldnt, i had to leave it for an hour or so, then it would stay on for about 5 minutes. And the same thing the next day (half an hour then 5 minutes). I left it into the repair shop, it had to get a circuit board replaced at a cost of £315, dont know how much it will cost to get fixed now, as i could buy the same tv for a little over that now.

Screen not appearing straight away


It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems till it warms up. Turn you computer on and while the monitor is displaying black and the power LED is green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. A 15" LCD monitor is probably not an economically repairable problem unless you have access to really cheap parts and have the skills and tools to do the repair yourself.

Problems turning my tv on, need to try several times


I just recently had the same problem and finally my set would no longer turn on. I replaced the projector lamp and now my set works. However, when it first comes on, it only stays on for about 2 minutes and then goes off. After another minute, it comes back on and works fine from then on. I don't believe this double power up can be any good for the lamp, but I don't know if the problem is the lamp or the set. These lamps run on about 65 volts, but require a short blast from 5000 volt source to fire up. At $200.00 a lamp, I don't want to go buy another!
