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

    The 6 blinks mean no horizontal. Check the horizontal circuitry. I'll look up your specific model later and post more details.
