Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Sony TV model KDL-46Z4100, standby light flashes 14 times, no picture, no sound

Unplugging power is the only way to get it to stop. Plugging it in gives a green light, screen starts to light up in about ten seconds, then there is a click, the screen goes dark, and a red light begins flashing, it flashes 14 times, pauses then flashes 14 times again. It will continue flashing until the TV is unplugged.

    Actually, I think I have located the source of the problem myself by removing the back panel and looking over the components carefully. There was some residue on the metal below the T-CON board, when I removed the metal cover from the T-CON board I could see part of the board was scorched. I'm now waiting for a replacement T-CON board to arrive, and once it arrives and is installed I'll post the results. Thanks to everyone that replied. On another note, once I had posted my problem I didn't know how to find my post and look for answers. It was an e-mail from fixya with a link to this site that allowed me to see what was posted.

    One note: I found a number on the T-CON board that I used to order a new part, that number is 1-877-777-11. Price quoted was $42.87 + shipping from China.

14 blinks to Sony Brand LCDs indicates a 'Backend error'. It means that, the main board to this TV should be checked for fault. In most cases the main board might need replacement, and a software update too. If you wish to know more details about this blinking code, check this link. It has details of blinking codes to several brands of TVs including Sony. Actually the work is a skilled one, need experience.

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.
