Re: Sony TV

I believe that code is to do with convergence problems of which yours is known for. If it's been moved lately, something like a crt yoke may be loose. Or you could have some cicuit problems such as blown convergence control IC's

If thats all greek to you, then you need a tech to check it.

Why does my Sony kds-50a2020 power light flash 6 times?

I would talk to whoever rebuilt the optical block and see if they have any suggestions. It could be that the rebuilt unit is causing the problem.

Please can you tell me what error code 12 means and how to fix it or reset it on my Mitsubishi WS 65513 TV? Thank you!


Error code 12 means there is a problem with the lamp system. This model has a known defect in the DM board and power supply board. Mitsubishi does not support it and has no spare boards. After market vendors do make repair kits. I have a tip at which will help solve your problem.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

When you turn the tv on it go right back off Mitsubishi WS-55511 55 in. It about (5)yrs old I have try unplugging the tv for about 3 to 5 minute

Do this: When you turn it on and the green power light comes on and goes off:

On the front of the set press and hold BOTH the Menu and Input buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and then release both.

This model has a self check: The green power light will then blink a two digit error code: most common is 2 blinks, 2 blinks and a pause and repeat the error code at least 5 times.

Let me know what you find and I will tell you what it means.

I hope you get 2,2 as it is the most easy to resolve.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Cutting off

Try the following to see what exactly the 6 light blinks mean.

To see the diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:

Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power.

This brings up a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred. This will tell you what is happening and see if it's worth fixing.

Also, have you tried unplugging the TV for a few minutes? if it's some kind of computer error, unplugging it will allow the error to clear and possibly allow the TV to work again. Just an idea to try in case the error code doesn't tell you.what is wrong.

Red stand by light blinks 8 or 9 times and no picture or sound

hello Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.Nine blinks - Replace D 6116 and D 6301 on the "G" board, do not resolder as this will fix the problem temporary. Or Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive).

42" Sony LCD Projection

the manual indicates a six blink is "low B error, no"DD 6V" output from "g" board" the "g" board in a sony is usuall the main power supply board. the center pin of "D1634" is where the +6V comes from, don't short the pins while checking. good luck
