Sony Bravia KDL-60EX700 BAL Board / Flashing Green Amber

Hello. The HDMI ports on my Sony Bravia KDL-60EX700 were no longer working. Most of the time I would get no video or sound. Rarely I would get Video without sound. I tired all 4 HDMI ports and none of them worked well. However all the component plugs worked fine. I ordered a new BAL board for the tv and replaced it. Now after reconnecting everything, and turning the TV on I only get a flashing Green and Amber light. I have flashed a USB drive to fat 32, and put the tv update on it, along with plugging in the tv to the internet via an ethernet cable. What does that flashing Green / Amber lights mean? (Constant flash) Is there a way I can force an update on the BAL board. Thanks! Matt

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.

    The actual repair is not difficult at all. It is just removing screws and ribbon cables. The firmware update is the problem i'm trying to solve. I do not know what the flashing green and amber lights mean. I'm currently trying different usb flash drives to try and get the firmware uploaded.

    Without any confirmation about the latest firmware, do not do experiments. It might make the set irreparable. Never be in risk.

    I put the old board back in and everything works fine. I'll look at returning the board. It will not accept any firmware.

A 4 flash indicates you have a backlight problem. Either the backlight inverter boards have failed or you have a backlight that has failed in the LCD panel. You will need a technician to check the set to determine which is the problem.

It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact Samsung and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.

Hdmi port stopped working on sony bravia KDL-32L4000, when I connect my ps3 or direct tv trhough hdmi cables I will just get a blank screen that will say no signal.

I have a Sony Bravia model KDL-46s5100 that had the same problem. All HDMI ports stopped working. I don't know why this works but unplug the TV for about 30 sec, then plug it back in and hold down the power button on the tv for 10 seconds. Like I said I don't know why this works but it worked for me. Good luck.
