Hi, If all else fails, try do a hard reset. You can verify from your manual, but in some units, this is merely unplugging the unit from mains for a couple of hours. Try again, if it still shows error codes (blinking lights) you probably have to seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Either on of the backlight inverter boards is bad or a backlight has failed inside the panel.

Standby light flashes 4 times


One option to try is to try to factory reset the tv, to do this turn the tv on hold the Down Arrow on the remote and while doing this press the power button then release the down arrow button.

Bit of info on your issue
* Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505

When turning on tv. screen will display Bravia image & then go blank. red light flashes SIX times


Power off the television. Wait a few minutes, then power it back on. If this does not correct the issue leave the power on, point your remote control towards the Sony television and hold the down arrow button. While holding the down arrow button press the "Power" button. Release the down arrow button and the Sony TVicon1.png will reset itself to factory settings. Once the television performs a scan on itself your problem should be gone.

The old standby for almost all Sony sets is with the set off:

My Sony Bravia KDL-26S3000 won't turn on and is stuck in standby.


Hi,

There is a power fault with one of the PCB's inside, contact Sony if you are still in warranty, if not contact a Sony service center as it will need an engineer to open it up to repair it.

Thanks

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.
