SOURCE: Four blinking red lights.

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

Unfortunately, this is a failure of the balancer board for the backlight. The unfortunate part is that the balancer is not available by itself anymore, and the whole panel must be replaced, as Sony only has the balancers attached to new panels. You can contact Sony directly to ask for assistance, and it usually helps.

Hope this helps you...

SOURCE: Have a new Sony Bravia


There is some confusion on the model (KDL-40W500 vs. KDL-40V2500), so I will direct this toward the 40V2500.

On the KDL-40V2500, an 8X blink means the scan processer has gone bad, and the BU board needs to be replaced. If the problem is intermittent, the the AU board might be the problem, but if it all the time, bank on the BU.

A competent repair shop should be able to help you, or you can try calling Sony directly for assitance.

Hope this helps you...

it sounds like your back light might be going out. You might be able to fix this by installing a new backlight inverter board.

Tv turns on then turns off and the standby led starts blinking

Standby light blinking is sign or internal problem in tv and how many times it blinks is error code that will show what section of tv got problem. Count light blinks and let me know, there would be 3 seconds long pause in blinks so count pause to pause.

1 Answer

Tv immediately turns off

Four flashes indicates a problem with the backlight on the TV. It can be caused by the backlight inverter board (the power supply for the backlight) or by defective backlights in the panel It is USUALLY the backlight inverter board that is bad, but I have seen both components fail at various times. This set is fairly new and should still be withing the one year warranty, so you should contact Sony at 800-222-SONY to get it repaired. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
