try checking the soldered joints on the main circut board that attach the larger metal components...I re-soldered aprox 40 connections and now the tv works great!

SOURCE: TV Sony KV-29F1E turn-on failure, red standby LED flashes (starts after 10-20 attempts)

When the set ends up flashing the LED, it should be a repeatable count. Can you please report that count here? Also, since the set eventually works, I'd suspect a bad connection or a part that has changed value over time. The blink code will help to narrow down the offending circuit.

1. Place set on flat solid surface (garage floor or driveway).
2. Bang into it with SUV 3 or 4 times.
3. If set fails to respond, crush against garage wall or drive over it

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1Theinternal circuits are jammed because of electrostaticcharges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage readby the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started theprotection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrongvoltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in, starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Payparticular attention at inverter and power board, power board can beinspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with amultimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need toread voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with
troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one
circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I have a Sony KV-32S20 32" TV and the red standby led flashes constantly. From what Ive read does that mean an an I.C. tv chip # mcz 3001d is bad? I also read that replacing the R-536 with 1 ohm resistor...

you first must verify you have horizontal deflection. do the crt fillaments light up? if they dont you probably have a shorted horiz. output transistor short or a bad solder joint in the drive circuit. i would solder this anyway it is a common issue. it can blow up the power supply if it fails. if they do light up turn up the screen control, the bottom control on the flyback transformer, do you have a flat vertical line? if so you lost vertical deflection. that could also be a bad connection on the ic or it failed.

Standby/Timer LED blinking

These unit are famous for the PCB Print to be cracked around the HV Circuit and or the Horizontal Drive Transformer pins needing to be resoldered. It can turn into a very Major repair if the HV Components short. In that case the Power Supply will also short out.
Hope this helps

No Power on Sony TV

Be sure to use an ORIGINAL Sony transistor and be sure to resolder the pins of the small horizontal driver transformer and all parts connected to and around it, and your set should be fine.

Sony blinking standby light

This is Sony's way of telling you that there is a short in you set.Probably the horizontal deflection circuit.(Horizontal output transistor shorted??). Also any other short. You need to take it to a techincian and have it checked out. It would be wise to get an estimate! Stargazer
