SOURCE: my sony bravia tv is flashing red stand by light

Try leaving the TV unpugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you flashing red light codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Hi Elaine!

Please follow the steps mentioned below to troubleshoot the issue:
If the TV standby light is blinking for five times then you may perform the steps given below:
(i) Turn off the TV then disconnect all the cables from the TV.
(ii) Next, reconnect all the cables after two minutes.
(iii) Please make sure that the power cable from the TV is directly connected to a functional wall outlet.
(iv) Next, you may try resetting the TV to the original factory settings.

Please follow the steps that are mentioned below to reset the TV to the original factory settings:

(a) Turn ON the TV.
(b) Press and hold the Power button on the Remote Control supplied with the TV, then press the Power button on the TV front panel.
(c) Release the Power button. The TV will turn itself off, then back ON again.
(d) Next, release the Reset button on the Remote control.

If the standby light still blinks then the issue may be with the projection lamp in the TV and requires replacement.

Will the power supply cord for sony bravia KDL 40ex500 work on 40ex400?


Usually manufacturers use as many standardized components as possible to reduce costs so it is highly probable that the power cord on both a 40 & 50 inch sony tv in the same series is identical.

It sounds to be a firmware trouble. Will be best to contact the authorized service center for Sony, rather than trying to do it by yourself, as it is a very skilled work, need both concentration and previous experience. google.com/+GopakumarGopalan

Sony TV model KDL-46Z4100, standby light flashes 14 times, no picture, no sound


14 blinks to Sony Brand LCDs indicates a 'Backend error'. It means that, the main board to this TV should be checked for fault. In most cases the main board might need replacement, and a software update too. If you wish to know more details about this blinking code, check this link. It has details of blinking codes to several brands of TVs including Sony. Actually the work is a skilled one, need experience.

How do i get my bravia kdl-52xbr6 to read usb flash drive?


Better hope it is not a actual problem as not cheap to fix--first thing to do is with set off--unplug for a while and plug back to see if a reboot will or will not help.

Sony Bravia KDL-55EX500 flashing green and yellow light, an won't turn on. Any suggestions?


you guys are going to love me. lol. i figured it out at least for mine. $ )
1.start by unplugging the tv and everything plugged into it(make sure the only thing plugged into the tv is the power cord).
2. next plug in the usb flash drive with the update or a compatible version of the firmware.


3. now while holding down the up arrow button on the tv remote, plug in the tv and keep holding the up arrow while pressing and holding the power button on the side on the tv until you see the light on the tv go from solid green to solid red and yellow flashing lights. once you see this just sit back and wait a few min for it to force the update and it should turn on when its done.



let me know if this works for you as well or if you need any clarification. also know that step three is a pain to do alone and must be all done within a short period of time preferably at the same time.

TV switched itself off. Standby light flashing on and off once then five rapid flashes. Tv would come on but then turn off again after a few seconds.Standby light even stayed on when tv switched off at...


Subject

Unable to Power On or Off the set

Symptoms / Customer Description
The symptom may occur while the TV is ON or in Standby.

1) If the problem occurs while the TV is in Standby:
The TV will not turn on via the remote or power button located on the set however after AC reset (i.e. unplug the TV for at least 30 seconds from the AC source) the TV returns to normal operation.

2) If the problem occurs while the TV is in use:
You may lose the ability to power off the TV or switch the video inputs however channel changing, adjusting volume, or accessing the menu may still be possible. After AC reset (i.e. unplug the TV for at least 30 seconds from the AC source) the TV returns to normal operation.

Sony has designed the BRAVIA Televisions to be CUSTOMER Software Upgradeable and therefore Sony will not pay a service claim on any issue resolved by a software upgrade. If a customer requests an update please refer them to the following website: http://www.updatemytv.com. If the unit requires the update, you may enter the customer's information in the website and a USB device will be sent to their address.
If a customer does not have access to the web please have them call the Sony Call Center Support line: 1-866-210-6333

If a customer reports either symptom above request that they unplug the set from the AC wall outlet for at least 30 seconds and then plug the set back in. This will reset the TV and it should work fine for several months. If resetting the TV does not resolve the issue the customer has a different problem and a service call by a technician may be required
