Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

Sony KV40XBR800 will not turn on. Standby light blinks 6 times.

Tried to turn this TV on, and it refused. Heard all of the normal clicks and sounds it usually makes, but no picture. Standby light then started blinking 6 times in sequence. Sony repairman estimates $500 to $600 dollars to repair. Not sure I want to pay that much-might just want a new, non-tube, TV. Anyone else fix this problem, and how much did you pay??

Thanks!

    Thanks for responding. In your opinion what should I expect to pay for this? Or is it even worth fixing? I've heard different answers from different repair shops. Some say the problem will just occur again. ALSO...sometimes it blinks 5 times, sometimes 7. Do those indicate other problems? Thanks so much for responding.

  • Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.
  • This sounds like you do indeed need a professional to repair it. Most shops charge a check- out fee to investigate. Horizontal problems are usually some of the more difficult to diagnose

    Sony BRAVIA Fails to fully Power ON. TV shuts off when backlight should kick in, after logo lights and fades. 'standby' blinks 6 times.


    These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

    TV goes to blank screen standby after one second of normal functioning green power light on. When in standby state, the TV is blank like it's off and the red standby light blinks FOUR times.
