Question about Sony FWD-50PX1 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

SONY KDE-42X5955 No Picture

About 6 months ago, my plasma didn't come back on after a house power outage. Had to remove the AC plug and wait 5 min and then plug it in. Issue escalated to ware if you turned the TV off, it would not want to come back on until you kept removing the AC and putting it back. So, we put the TV in a power save mode at night, basically, TV is on, but screen is off, but you could still see a back-light. Was in this mode, which you get to by toggling it on the remote control, for 4 months. We just lost power six days ago (off for a second) and now, the screen will not come on, but we get 9 blinking standby. Did a voltage check on everything and the only issue i could find was G1 card, PRI_VCC was 0 volts. So, i replaced the G1 card. Now, when you try to turn it on, it blinks green and then goes into 6 blink standby. Well, to my knowledge, that's a LowB Error. Well, not sure how to isolate this issue because I can only run voltage checks when it's trying to turn on and that's only good for 9 seconds. what can i do, how do i isolate this issue without just replacing card after card after card..... any expert help is greatly appreciated.

    After replacing R6301 on the G2F board (10ohm resistor was reading 15k ohms), the system now will start up, still no picture, power light blinks green at power on, which is a normal process, then its goes to a steady green and no longer will go into a standby blink mode. the system has no sound when on, but will have static sound from the speakers if i put the tv in maintenance mode (display+5+vol up+power) the Xsus board gets warm, have not opened up the Ysus side yet. what is a big problem for me is that vss on g2f is 0 volts, for all 3 of the vss on CN6013, it should be 85.3. if i remove power from G2F to Xsus, the system will go into standby blinking 9 times (panel error) i cannot get a steady reading from Pri_VCC on G1 or G2F i have no voltage reading on VSS (any of them) on G2F is the G2F the issue? is it the Ysus or Zbuffers? I so want to resolve this but am struggling with isolating the issue(s)! can an expert please advise.

4 times blink error shows that any FAN is not running in TV as there are 4 fans in this TV.
Please check fan connectors and make sure all are plugged securely.

I would suspect one or more of the miniature flourescent backlight lamps. One way to confirm this would be to power up the set with a grayscale image at 40 to 60 IRE. If one or more lamps is failing to light, a slightly darker horizontal area in the grayscale will give it away. Unfortunately, Sony will not supply any of the backlight components apart from a new LCD panel. Sorry.

It's not to complicated, in the newer TVs as well as other things, when you first turn them on the diagnostic circuits kick in [that the first relay you hear click] it sends a signal (low voltage) to all the circuits to check them and make sure there are no problems. If it gets the proper returns from each circuit it kicks out and the full power relay kicks in and powers your set up. This is done to protect others circuits that might be effected by a flaw in a different circuit. What started as a small flaw in a component has gotten worse with use which is normal. Your set is kicking the diagnostic circuits and they are detecting the problem and shutting it down. You have problems with your power board, if the diagnostics circuits were not in place and full power hit the set the power board could possibly put triple or more voltage to some section of another board, thus burning it out also. That's why they started using the diagnostic circuits on TVs, Computers have had them for years. Late model car - etc. I would take the power board out of it and go to shop Jimmy's and enter the part # which will be on the board and order me another one and pop it in and kick back and watch TV again. I don't know what a power board would cost for it but "shopjimmy's" carries high quality boards at a reasonable price. I do caution you on buying a refurbished board, they are tempting but I have never and I mean never seen one hold up very long. As a matter of fact I will not put one into a TV or anything else for that matter. So there is light at the end of the tunnel and it's not the train this time! I only work on the kind of TV that plug into the wall or run on batteries, therefore, I've seen a bunch of them in14 years. Don't worry about getting the wires mixed up because one thing about TVs is a harness or plug will only fit one place and that is where it belogs you can't cross them up.

I have a Coby tftv2617 and have it hooked up to cable. Sound goes out after 10 mins. I can turn it off then on again and it will work again for another 10 mins. What is wrong with it?


Unplug the 110-AC power source, wait maybe a minute, then plug the power back. I have the same malfunction issues with my cable box, cellphone, cordless phone, flat-screen TV, and laptop PC. Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery, wait one minute, then replace the battery and 110-AC power, and it works OK again.
Its a software glitch; when you remove all power source, it reboots and the glitch is deleted, but it returns a week to a month later. Manufacturers purposely included this to psyche you into junking your old electronics and buying new. Observe this never happened until AFTER 5 years had lapsed since you got it brand new.

Sony Plasma TV


I had this same exact issue yesterday. I own the same TV model and here is what SONY had me do to get the picture back. Ultimately the picture comes back, but it will be very dim and needs repair. Most likely a power supply issue. Try these steps:

-Press power off or leave with standby light on for 5 minutes (wait the full 5 minutes)
-Unplug TV / Press top buttons 5 times each to remove static from system boards (yes, each button 5 times each)
-Wait one full minute and plug TV in and press power on

Sony LCD television will not power on.


I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
