Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Sony Bravia kdl40p2530 screen stays black when i turn it on. After a small pause there is a small "Bump" from the speakers as if they are turning on but still no picture. The green light stays on but there is now a new red flashing light. this light will flash 4 times pause and repeat this process for the duration of time the TV is on. After a bit of research online i have checked the capacitors cause they can sometimes give trouble, but they seem fine so i was wondering has any come across this problem before or have any solutions. any help is appreciated.

Those 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.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

SOURCE: Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times

Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.
