    I don't believe it's a connection issue with any piece of equipment. I get this problem whether I use the coax connection, component, composite, etc... and various different pieces of equipment from dvd players, to cable tv, to satellite have been connected and it's all the same. I've had it unplugged for over a day but it doesn't matter. It's been like this for years. never tried a factory reset.

    high voltages don't scare me. I'm an electrician and have a lot of experience in that department. I'm assuming these potentional high voltages would be caused by capacitors. If you have any ideas, I'll try them.

    I have the same Tv and the exact same issue. red light is flashing 5 times and green is missing. I am not familiar with fixing TVs. Any idea what a professional repair may cost?

This is not a problem that a reset will fix. THe 5 blinks is a code that indicates a problem with the AKB circuit. There is a possibility that the picture tube is starting to fail, but that is rare. If you are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged, let me know and I will provide additional details and instructions for a couple of repair options.

    Stumbled upon this post and have the issues described above. Have already tried adjusting the focus and screen settings internally. Also tried adjusted the knob on the G2 board. Made the picture look a ton better, but still no green. What are some other options?

Hi,

I go the same problem with sony TV WEGA Trinitron HW21 M80 (Sold in India pune), I contacted the service center. the repair guys came and saw the screen and the red light on the on off switch blink 5 times.

He quickly called his office and informed them. He promised to comback to pick up the television for repair and then did not turn up later. (Even after several calls) .
I called another sony India authorized service center and had the same experience as above. Now i am convinced that the these models have potentially defective Picture tubes and circuitry that don't last more then 5-6 years and Sony is intentionaly turning its back on the customers by using delaying, ignoring and not registering the customer complaints as the warranty period is over. Time to look at sony differently, (Good products with poor service and reliablity and poor life).

Here is a few basic starts. Ask if you need more after these.
1) Does it look the same on DVD or VCR when playing one of these sources? If not then you have a bad connection problem with your TV. I need more information if this is the case.
2) Do you have a cable box or converter box? How is it hooked up? Component Cables?
3) Have you done a factory reset on your TV? Unplug it for a min of 30min (all power sources)

I have a Sony WEGA KDE-42XS955 that takes 5 minutes for the picture to appear. Once it appears..works great! If I just leave it turned for it will work fine. Any idea what board needs to be replaced?


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis.

Can you operate model ZHS 30A without a remote. Mine has been damaged and waiting for a new one.


Without a remote control, either you or me can't operate it. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites.

http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some on-line sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.
