Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36XBR800 36" TV

3 Answers

Flashes 7 times .

This sony XBR800 will flash 7 times if I try to power it on .

Sometimes if I just leave t off for awhile and plug it in it turns itself on ( I never hit the switch ) and it will do fine .

I am beginning to think it had something to do with it being moved as its a heavy TV and the problems began after that .

There is a regulator Ic8002 that is failing, contact a Sony repairman, you can not do this unless you have the part and know how to solder

The standby light flashes 7 times then pause and repeat.

Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits. Power supply regulator section circuit should be troubleshooted. It is fatal to proceed trouble shooting this section, without proper knowledge in electronics, as if you want to measure the voltages to this section, the TV must be switched ON. When it is switched ON, or powered up; most of the components in this section will be dangerous to touch. If you are not handy, seek tech support. It will be more better.

TV will not turn on. I press power and it sounds like it's coming on and then clicks and the stand by light flashes 7 times. Have already tried unplugging and then plugging back in after a minute

When I called a tv repair company the rep said this usually indicates that the "lamp" for this model needs to be replaced. Since he TV is so heavy he suggested that I access the trap door in back of the console and detach the "lamp" myself and bring the lamp to his shop for replacement. Approximate cost for the lamp is $200.00. Wish me luck.

Sony KV40XBR800 won't turn on, flashes 6, sometimes 7 times on trouble code.

IC in power supply needs to be replaced, this is a specialized part and should be done by an experienced tech.

KV-32HS500 WON'T TURN ON standby light flashes 7 and sometimes 6 times and has flashed 4 times also.

These are sony error codes while in protection mode. The 7 blinks means high voltage exceeded 33k volts ,caused by either horizontal or power supply circuits.
The 6 blinks code is for no horizontal deflection, and the 4 blinks code is for no vertical deflection.
So the one thing they all have in common is the power supply that will need to be repaired before you can use the set again.
Hope this help. Good luck

TV does not turn on. Stand By LED blinks 4 times and pauses and blinks 4 times again Tv will not turn on...when plugged in the red stand by light flashes 4 can hear the tv turn on but a black...

On older Sony, sometimes a power surge causes the set to be in shut down mode. Try unplugging for 5 minutes and then plug in and try. This many times will fix.
