SOURCE: Sony KP-61XBR48 Projection TV When power button

Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Tv is in standby mode (red light on bottom left is blinking). we can't get it out of this mode. We moved the tv and unplugged it...tried to turn it back on and this happened.


I need a model or chassis no. (on the back of the TV). Also how many times does the light flash between the long pauses? Sonys have a self diagnostic feature that flashes the power light a certain number of times to indicate various problems.

I have an old trinitron


What model ? I thave hree Sony XBR's and each of them have had various IC's that failed and needed replacement as well as some bad solder joints (from constant hot/cold cycles) that needed attention. It will take electronics knowledge and experience to diagnos and fix this issue.

Red light flashing 5 times every 2 seconds


The 5 blink code in dicates a loss of video. There could be a number of reasons for this. I need to look up your specific model to get you the probable parts. Stay tuned...

Sony Wega 55" Replaced Bulb TV still does not work


Hello, please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely. If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect. If you need more help please advice
