    Hi mine also has error code 12/22 but which voltages to check if this is power related? VRS, VA ? 185VDC 65VDC? Thanks

  • Rob 3 Mar 18, 2009

    Hi, Thanks Robonoris. So far I have visually checked the board and components and checked the resistors and caps and so far the voltages would appear OK but it is knowing what exactly the output voltages should be reading i.e.VCC, VSC, VRS, VRA, VRR.

    The only markings available are -VY -165.00V and VS 179.96V

    Again thankyou

The error code tyo which you refer was truncated off of your posting. Could you please enter that code again? That code will assist us in determining the problem circuit.

Thanks,

Sony PFM 500A2WE 12 22 error code


The error indicates issue with the power supply and the deflection stage, Check first the cable. If you plan on troubleshooting this yourself check first the warranty. Inspect the power supply circuit if there are leaking capacitors. As for the deflection stage I would recommend a technician to have this checked.

My sony Sony PFM-42B1 blink 5 times


When a Sony TV flashes five times, that means that there is an AKB circuit fault.
This means that there is something wrong with the video.
Try first unplugging power for few hours, if that does not work, call a technician, as several IC and components must be tested and eventually replaced.
