Question about Sony Televison & Video

Red flashing light

My TV is a Sony Wega KV-BZ14P40. Recently it started turning on with the usual green flashing and it settles but very shortly thereafter it starts to flash in red colour. It flashes red 5 times in a row, pauses for about 3 seconds and flashes 5 times again over and over. The picture is also dull especially when I just turn the TV on. Can you help please?

  1. Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

Most likely the flyback assembly, and or the horizontal output transistor failed. There is also a possiblity of some other faults that are putting the power supply in to the protect mode.

If there is a scan failure, it is possible that there is also some damage in the power supply.

The set will have to be serviced by a TV service tech.

This is not a problem that a reset will fix. THe 5 blinks is a code that indicates a problem with the AKB circuit. There is a possibility that the picture tube is starting to fail, but that is rare. If you are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged, let me know and I will provide additional details and instructions for a couple of repair options.

Turn on tv no picture no sound standby light starts green changes to flashing red


the number of red light flashes indicate where the fault lies...sony error codes are easy enough to find if you google the model with the number of flashes.hope this helps somewhat as you dont say how many blinks!!
regards,steve.
ps.line output transformer failure rates are quite high on these sets,usually resulting in two red blinks-pause-two red blinks-pause etc...

Green screen and distorted picture sound is good but no picture


It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.

Have it service by a qualified person.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV Color changes


Try turning down (off) the color during such an episode. If the image is tinted pink or green instead of black and white when you do this,you have either an intermittent short in your CRT (tube), which is terminal,or a gun drive problem, which may be repairable. If you're feeding it component instead of composite signal,it may just be a bad connection of the B-Y cable.
