This is a white balance failure. there are many possibilities. I would recommend calling a service tech to look at that one.

I have this exact set and the 5 blinking led was a ballast failure, Check you ballast for shorts, the transistors may be bad whether or not it is visually apparant. There are several ballast models that are compatible for that tv. The last I checked, sony sold them for $127, ebay and shopjimmy.com were about the same.

Sony Bravia 52EX701 picture went out. Now bottom


Most likely it's a capacitor fault.

Google "Capacitor bulge" and then search Youtube for your make and model to see if anyone has done an instructional video. You'll need to be comfortable dismantling the unit and be able to use a soldering iron. If this isn't you then take it to a repair shop.

Sony is, by and large, a reliable brand. The problem is that Sony like most other manufacturers has to buy capacitors from 3rd party suppliers who bid on price. Unfortunately the cost cutting has affected parts quality.

I have a old 52 inch sony tv turns on but picture blinks off and on whats wrong


A lot of their older sets (both regular TV sets and big rear projection set had this issue).

In either case it may mean with age the MASTER SCREEN control/s need to be adjusted slightly up---if too dim a picture it will blink.

A model number would tell me what to try.

Models beginning with KP are large projection and ones with KV are regular sets.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive 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.

Sony kf-60we610 stand by blinks 5 times


Hey there,
I've had my Sony KF-50WE610 for approx. 4years now and have just experienced the prob you described (though I didn't think to count the number of red blinks). I called Sony TV technical support (888-772-7669, #3 for TV/digital cameras, #1 for TV, then #1 again I think). They said that if the power/standby light blinks 5x, that means there's something wrong with the lamp driver and service will be required. Needless to say, I better go home and count my red blinks! Good luck, I hope this helps a bit. Have a happy and safe holiday!
