Sony Tv Problem

Hi, I have a 53" sony tv and it quit working the other day. The red light on the front is flashing 4 times. I'm trying to figure out what this means. I tried to reset it like the book instructed and it still just flashes 4 times. There is a two week waiting period to get it into the repair shop. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

    I was watching my tv (sony KF-060WE610) When instantly the screen went black and sound stopped. The is no picture and when you turn the tv on the green button flashes several times then the red light does the same?and nothing comes to the screen not even the video 1 or 2 to tell you that screen your on. I was wondering if it was the bulb or what? the Tv was made in 2004 and we bought it brand new 2 or 3 yrs ago. ANy answers please help.

    I purchased the SonySXRD Projection TV, KDS-60A2020 (SONY GRAND WEGA) they have come out and replaced my TV 2 times in the last 3 weeks.. The red power light blinking red... constantly .. It stopped working as if we had turned it off.. we came back into the room and my wife thought I had turned the set off... The store came out and replace it and the same thing happend about 5 days after that... so the original and the replacement one did the same.. and just this morning the same started again.(#3). I have left it setting in the same place they installed it about 3 ft out sitting in the floor of the living room... this is just crazy...

What is a hard reset please, or which bulb do you replace ?

Posted on Nov 18, 2009


Replace your bulb! This is happening to everyone exactly at the same time. Apparently this is the Sony "light burnout" time.

I have a Sony KP-53V90 53 with no display and red light flashing

This is a good one. Your TV "looks" at the feedback coming from each picture tube in your TV. When it doesn't see what it expects, it kicks out a 5 flash. Most commonly, the correct signals never got to the picture tube(s) and that's why the feedback was abnormal. Which brings us to the most common solution: C boards, they attach directly to the bottom of the picture tubes. Figuring out which one has a problem... that's another matter. Due to the age of the TV, parts costs are rising. Each C board (3 in the TV) runs about $100 so guess work can be expensive. I hope this was helpful.

TV goes on and off while the red light blinks

Your tv is going into "protection" mode. It has a fault that should only be repaired by a qualified person.

Sony Tv Problem

The 4 blinks indicate the problem circuit, but I need the model number to give you the specifics. The category you entered is KV-36fs120 which is a 36 inch set. Please update this with the model number. It should be on the back.
