Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television

1 Answer

Sony KDL-40V3000 standby blinks 13 times.

I turn the TV on and get a picture briefly. It then goes to standby in less than 2 seconds. The standby blinks 13 times. This TV is, of course, less than 13 months old, but more than 12. Any idea what is wrong and what the part may cost?

A service technician arrived at my home this morning and infromed me that 13 blinks indicates a bad LCD panel. His quote to repair it was approximately $500 more than the TV initially cost. I contacted Sony support directly, and they have agreed to replace the TV, since it is less than 30 days out of warranty. The KDL40V3000 has apparently been dicontinued so they are replacing with a KDL40V4100(factory reconditioned). I know this won't necessarily help others with the same problem, but if your warranty ended recently enough they will probably work with you to mitigate the expense.

My flat screen tv shuts off and standby led blinks 13 times.


Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"

Follow these steps and check if help to resolve the issue:

1. Disconnect all the attached external device (if any) and then try turning ON the TV.

2. Remove the surge protector or power strap (in any), directly connect the TV to a working Power outlet and check.

3. Try changing the power cable (if possible).

4. If the issue persists then Service may require to resolve it.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When turning on the screen comes on for 2 seconds, then red blinking light flashes 13 times and repeats flashing.


Standard blinking codes for Bravia sets for US only goes to 10 blinks which points to faulty or short circuited components inside whereas the Australian range of KDL's goes to 13 blinks of the LED which points to a faulty balancer and must be taken into a service department.

Sony fb3 boad kdl40v3000 Our tv would not turn on except the flashing standby light. Technician told us we need to replace the fb3 board. The cost is $395 for the board and $185 labor. Is this reasonable?...


This is not a unusual amount for repair. Most repair facilities do not like using used parts on sets they have to warranty after a repair. They would then be liable if were to fail and then they would be replacing it at a greater cost to them. You could check with Sony and see what their retail cost is on the part. Their Customer Service Line is 1800-222-SONY.
I hope this helps,

Sony Bravia KDL-40V3000 standby light blinking


I just worked on this last week 13 blinks means there is a problem with the backlights.So it can be 1 of 2 things bad inverter board( which costs less than $200) or the panel in which case you can thow the TV away as it will probably cost as much for a new TV.Unfortunately the set I worked on ended up being panel. If you try the inverter board just take your time removing it its plugged in rather tight I gently tapped it out with a screwdriver to get it started.

Tv bravia kdl 40v3000 problem turning on


To wayne: The balancer board is in fact available by itself. You can get it at many different parts depots here on the web. I just suffered from a similar problem, on the same tv and it solved my problem perfectly (Stupid 13 blink, blink code...)

The searchable part number is SSB400WA20. Its referred to as a voltage inverter (for the backlight of the lcd panel.)
Good luck!!!

Sorry to hear this, It looks like you have a bad panel, more specifically a bad t-con board but this board is supplied as part of the panel. The panel for you tv costs over $1000, If I were in your shoes I would call sony and complain, they have been knowen to assist you in some way IE pay for the part and you pay labor or sometimes they take care of the job in full. They are going to want an estimate from an authorized service center in your area. You may want to have one come out and write you up an est and then call sony and complain. Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks
