5 blink error code on a Sony Trinitron KV-36FS16

I have a Sony Trinitron KV-36FS16 and it cuts off by itself many times a day. Sometimes it just shuts off and sometimes the screen goes blue with white horizontal line before it shuts off. Also, when it starts acting up the picture dims on and off almost like it has an intermitten color. When this starts happening, the standby light gives a five blink error code. Any help on this would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks,

Jason

The power supply board is failing. There are twi integrated circuits in the horizontal drive circuitry that have to be replaced. The original integrated circuits are the same type and you will see written on each..."MCZ3001D" and need to be replaced with Sony # 670581001 or the "D" board with those parts on it needs to be replaced. The cost of the entire board is high-about $375.

for my post #108 for a step-by-step solution with pictures. $21.83 is all it cost me. I fixed my own TV as many others on that forum have. Feel free to contact me at eclipsedave@yahoo.com if you run into difficulties.

Hi there,

Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with
troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one
circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Sony kv34hs420 shut off itself


Hi:
If you count the number of error blinks when it shuts this will let you know the error code you are having. If the red led blinks say 6 to 7 times after shutdown then pauses and does it all over again there is a problem with the deflection board or D Boardas sony calls it, It is usually related to the two Power supply regulators IC's on the D-board.

Sony Vega Service Codes


KV-32HS510 and KV-27HS420, seven times blink error code shows problem in Horizontal deflection circuit.

There are many possibilities like dry solder joints, weak capacitors, Horizontal transistor short or flyback transformer fried etc.

If you have little experience of TV repair and good solder skills and have necessary tools to test / check defective parts, then you can make it. you also need to have related service manual to see board location, schematics and part numbers.
