    I got a used big tv from a neighbor and I plugged it in and tried to turn it on. Whn I press the power button, the tv flashes like it is going to cut on. However nothing happens, I noticed that the red stand by light is flashes 11 times, then a long pause and the flashing contines 4 more times and then pauses, it continues this 4 flashing pattern as long as the TV is plugged in. I am assuming that it is some type of diagnostic indicator?

I have a sony tv model kv-27v42 i have sound but no pictture and stand by light blinks what is the problem

How many times do this standby light blinks at a time of switch on? These blinks are fault indications. From the number of these blinks, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. Count it. If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes to Sony TVs, check this link.

I have a sony bravia and its not turnin on the red light its blinkin twice

2 Red Blinking lights on this model indicate an Over Current Protection status. This could be caused by a faulty power supply inside the TV or possibly by the Flyback Transformer.

This is repairable, but needs to be serviced by a TV service technician.

Will not come on and front lights flashing red +

If your set is the KV-24FS120, then the standby light should blink with a repeated pattern. Count the blinks and post that number here. It is a diagnostic code that will indicate the defective circuit. Having that information will allow us to suggest repair options.

Red light flashing

DO NOT under any circumstances touch the red wire inside the set. This cable connects to the picture tube and carrys 33,000V and can cause injury. The 3 blinks are a diagnostic code that indicate the defective circuit. Please confirm the model number as KV-36FS120 and I'll look up the code.

There is no Lamp door if this is the KV model mentioned above as this is a CRT based set not a projection set.

Please confirm the model number so I can get you a proper solution.

I have a 36" TV that won't work - Red LED light blinks 5 times

The 5 blinks indicates a White Balance Failure. This involves checking voltages and components tied directly to the CRT. I would not suggest any attempt for self repair. The cost for this repair should not be significant. Figure a parts cost in the $30-$50 range at worst.

Count the flashes and verify that the model is KV-32FS100. The flash count will indicate the circuit in which the problem was detected.

Sony KV-32S40 32" TV problem

intermittent problems can usuall be liked to bad solder connections. And sony typically has some that will develop after a few years in the power supply. so check for bad sodler connections throught the main board & give a close look to the power supply & check you work after to make sure you have no shorted pins. good luck.
