    I'm a GM certified tech at Chevrolet but I don't know squat about TV's. I thought maybe it was just a power supply issue like on a PC.

  • db5astonmart May 25, 2009

    Thanks for the tip on my Sony. I'll look into power supplys and if too pricey I'll just get a new LCD unit.

  • db5astonmart May 25, 2009

    Can I purchase the part and install it myself or do I have to have a Sony tech do it?

    How much is the part and what exactly is it?


  • db5astonmart May 25, 2009

    Thanks, I was just trying to save some money. At CHevrolet we charge 109.00 per hour so I figure a Sony Tech in home service will be pricey.

If your a novice at TV repair don't try it. A Sony authorized repair station knows what this problem is and should be cheaper in the long run for them to repair it.

    You DO NOT NEED a power supply board. I am a SONY authorized service center and have replaced a small part in the power supply on the main board It should not cost that much. ruulds2008 is misleading you.

  • Terry Riegel May 25, 2009

    No and 8.00 to15.00 depending on shipping Have a Sony tech do.

  • Terry Riegel May 26, 2009

    You don't want to be out of a job if everybody fixes there own cars do you ? TV repair is by flat fee around 150.00 to 220.00 labor depending on area.

Well if you know eletronics then yes you could fix it yourself otherwise leave it to the experts you going to need a new power supply unti for this TV. These are not cheap as there aftermarket you may want to try to find a dealer on the internet for this part. Thanks

You got a power supply problem. It is a chip that need replacing but I won't recommend if you don't know the technigue of removing a chip & soldering in the new part without damaging the printed circuits. astrotech

Sony Trinitron---Blinks 9 times, won't come on!

A specific model number will probably get you more specific
help.. but if you check around the internet by model number
you will likely be presented with some SERIOUS PART opportunities...

The FASHING LIGHT means you have a hard fault in the power circuits...

The number of flashes is mean to point you to a specific area...

I gave all my big flat screens away in favor of the new
HD stuff... (certainly less reliable than those Sony sers...

Shopjimmy might be a great place to call... but the MODEL NUMBER is a MUST.
