Re: Turning on

Hi, The number of flashes (on/off) is indicative of a code. The code represents a particular problem. For example on some versions, 3 blinks indicate diagnostic mode where the builtin protection has kicked in (very likely a powersupply problem), 5 blinks indicates a video controller fault (possibly picture tube drives). Unfortunately this require the services of a qualified TV professional very familiar with Sony WEGA. In some cases this type of errors can be corrected by a hard reset, while others still would require board replacement (expensive) or hopefully component level repair. Good luck and post back should you need further information. kind regards.

SOURCE: TV won't turn on with

The flashing timer light blinks out a code, where it flashes some number of times, pauses, then repeats. The code indicates what fault is keeping the set from coming on. Unfortunately, all the codes tend to mean that there is some electronic problem with the TV. Unless you have some electronic servicing skills and the necessary equipment to troubleshoot the problem, you'll need to have set checked by a professional. For any code there can be many causes, so I can't offer any other advice.

This might be a good time to check sale prices on LCD sets. Let a technician check the set and give an estimate for the repair, then decide.

Lcd tv light flashing but no picture or sound

If you removed power by turning off power itself to the set instead of turning it off by turning the set itself off---that is not a good thing to do.

When power is restored a surge can and likely hit the power supply in your set---time for a tech or shop to open it---I suspect they will find the standby or main power supply is damaged or now bad.

TV went off, standby timer light flashing

Try unpluging from the wall and theplug back in and try turning back on to reset. Sometimes holding the power button in while pluging back in will reset it, every brand is different for the hard reset.

Fix my tv

sp.gif sp.gif The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.
