Question about Sony KV-32S40 32" TV

1 Answer

Sony KV-32S40 Dead Set

When plugged in, the unit blinks non-stop. I found a fault code sheet but it doesn't help since it is a continuos blinking. When you press the Power button the unit clicks and the blinking stops. The glass tube on the neck glows but nothing comes on screen. Any suggestions???

    my tv blinks off and on to picture and black screen and back again

  • Psimpso May 20, 2008

    Same problem here.



    I called a local service man - he claimed that the nonstop flashing light indicates a bad tube. He also mentioned that if I opened the back, somewhere there is some kind of picture knob I could turn that would darken the picture but keep the TV working for maybe a few more months.

    Hi Not sure if anyone figured thi all out. I have this model and all of a sudden for the last week it turns on, then skizzes out where the picture just wipes out to a black screen. The sound always stays on. The blinking light blinks consistently. I tried unplugging, replugging, using the wall, using a strip, keeping status quo and turning on/turning off and that sometimes works where the picture will come back in look find and then after a few seconds go out again. Is this a known thing? I hardly use the tv and its like 7 years old. I hear of folks having tvs for many many years and mine is gone after 7? Appreciate any input.

Sony tv model KV-HA21M80 is having problem front stand by L.E.D is blinking 4 times and stopping


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.

Sony wega kv-32FQ86B flashing light


These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can vet an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

Six blinks? No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/. If the blinks continues, and non-stop, the fault should be with its main system control IC, and with the memory IC.

I pressed the sleep button by accident and the pic and sound went off and the stand by/timer red light started blinking. what does it mean?


Depends on how many times it blinks,just count the blinks Example: if it blink 2 times then pauses and blink 5 times then the code would be 25 and so on

Once you have this code,please post it.

Sony kv-32fs120,no power:3 and 5 blinks


http://www.riddledtv.com/forums/sony-kv-32fs120-dead-blinks-5-times-t329.html

Thank this guy and you need to see a qualified repairman

Chassis BA6 for anyone elses information:

I would check the Bridge rectifier first to see what voltage you are getting. I have a note here to check D611 which is the bridge rectifier.



Here are the Sony blink codes:


Unit is dead and there are no blinks---Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse, R607, Q601, IC601, R612 and VDR601 (should show open)

Continuous Blink Once A Second, No Pausing As Discussed Above---
No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground or held high), IK video path is defective.

ONE Blink--- not used for the self-diagnosis

TWO Blinks---B+ over current protection (OCP) , unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits.

THREE Blinks---B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.

FOUR Blinks---No Vert. Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505

FIVE Blinks---AKB circuit (AKB), 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. Also unit be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

SIX Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.

SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.

EIGHT Blinks---Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401 and 402.

Intermittent problems ?? This is a great feature. You can also bring up these fault codes ON-SCREEN to see a list of the problem numbers with the abbreviation of the problem and the number of times this problem has occurred. This is slightly different than entering the service mode. To see the diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:

Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred. Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC. We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink codes.

So, now that you know about these self-diagnostics, how do you use them? Say that you have a set with a black screen. You see that the LED is blinking 4 times....This would tell you that you have no vertical and that is why the video is muted. If it was blinking 6 times, you would know that you have a horizontal fault.

We can help, but I need to know the count of the blinks. That count will indicate the circuit that is defective. Also, please confirm that the model number is: KV-34S25.
