Sony bravia kdl 40vl160 Blinks in stand By, no power on.

Hi!! Everyone! I do have a Sony Bravia KDL 40VL160 which goes to stand by mode and the red led light blinks 14 times, nothing else happens, it does not turn on and stays there, with out power on. My friend says that the power board should be changed, but i do not know if it could be Firmware fail. Honestly, i do not want to dump it away, because it is a relatively new TV, it has only 3 years old, and out of warranty. Any ideas?

Hi,
The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.
Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hello,

This issue is related to a power problem in as much as the TV turns off on it's own. I think the TV has developed a power problem.

The problem is consistent with overheating on the power supply board of the TV.

The power supply board of the TV has few capacitors and IC. If any of these IC's gets short or become weak, it can cause the TV to turn off on it's own.

When current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV. The current also goes to the weak/faulty part, then the current stops or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off on it's own.

This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

This is a common problem faced by many other users too. To solve this issue, check the power supply board and read it with a meter and continuity tester, in order to detect the faulty part and replace the faulty part on the board which is short due to which power supply board.

Sony specifically uses GM1 Board. In other words, Sony power supply board is called "GM1 board"

It's a bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician.

You can buy this part at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor (capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can buy a refurbished complete GM1 power board from shopjimmy.com to save you some stress.

If this task is too technical for you, you can call a family or friend who has the ability to assist you (two heads are better than one).
