Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS500 36" TV

1 Answer

I have a 36" TV that won't work - Red LED light blinks 5 times

I have a 36" Sony Wega that I purchased in 2004 (I don't have the model number handy). Recently, my son kept pressing the on/off button on the remote. I then shut the TV off manually. Later that evening, the TV wouldn't work and the red LED light kept flashing 5 times every 20 seconds or so. Any thoughts? Thx.

    5 times standby blinks shows an error code and details of error codes slightly different in Sony models.
    Please intimate exact model of your TV to check its schematics for solution.

The 5 blinks indicates a White Balance Failure. This involves checking voltages and components tied directly to the CRT. I would not suggest any attempt for self repair. The cost for this repair should not be significant. Figure a parts cost in the $30-$50 range at worst.

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.
