Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television
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.
