Hi, I've a sony KDL 52w5500 since january 2010 Yesterday it stoped working, I'm getting no screen but I got sound for few seconds Then the tv stop and the bottom led start to blink First 13 times Then 14 times An other point is that I've check in the dark, and it seems that there is no light at all coming from the TV so I guess that none of the back lights are power up.

You have a couple of problems if you are sure there are 2 different blink codes. 13 blinks indicates a backlight balancer error which would explain your no light condition. 14 blinks would be a TCON board error which is the driver board for the LCD screen. Either error would keep the screen black.

Testimonial: "Thx for the answer would both give a black screen or one could give a black image ? What I mean is that right now, no light is coming from the TV, so would resolving the TCON or the Balancer problem give me some light but with a black image ?"

    Fixing the balancer problem will give you a backlight and hopefully fix your TV completely.. I would start there, since the backlight is the highest failure part of the TV.

    I've been reading the "LCD Flat panel TV troubleshooting guide"

    and from what I understood the Main Logic board is what allow the inverter/balancer and the T-Con to work properly.

    So since both got down at the same time, would it make sens to think that the problem comes from the Main Logic board ?

SONY KDL-52W5500 red light blinking 13 times


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

My flat screen tv shuts off and standby led blinks 13 times.


Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"

I'd say about the blinking to a black screen would be your cable provider. As for the stripes that means that your board panels can be going bad, you can try updating the firmware of the TV to help but if that doesn't work you're getting very close to full failure on the TV.

Hdmi port stopped working on sony bravia KDL-32L4000, when I connect my ps3 or direct tv trhough hdmi cables I will just get a blank screen that will say no signal.


I have a Sony Bravia model KDL-46s5100 that had the same problem. All HDMI ports stopped working. I don't know why this works but unplug the TV for about 30 sec, then plug it back in and hold down the power button on the tv for 10 seconds. Like I said I don't know why this works but it worked for me. Good luck.
