    I have the same problem with my sony kp-43ht20 that seems to be common. My t.v just stopped turning on one day, there has been no problems with the picture or anything and all of a sudden it just won't turn on, no picture or sound and the light blinks about 6 times. We have tried unplugging it and letting it cool off and nothing seems to work. Help please!

    I turn it on and it turns back off and the timer/standby light blinks about 6 times then stops, then a few seconds later it blinks again. Please if anyone can help me with this problem it would be highly appreciated, or tell me if the problem can be fixed.

    Same TV, same headache. It appears the power supply board is ok, and there is no change to fault with the AD, U, or B boards removed, so I am leaning towards the A board. I wish I could bring all my test equipment from work to my house, but I can't. I will however look for those parts in the schematic and see what I can find...

Does Sony offer any kind of recall for this problem? It seems to be a common problem for this model of tv.

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?

Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

Tv flashes red then shuts itself off after only on for 3 min

I have not repaired this particular model. But sometimes there is an IC they refer to as a standby IC. It may also be known as a controller IC. I call it the powerline regulator. And in one case the older Sony Projection TV had an audio output IC with a standby built into this IC. So,this advice is refering to a standby IC. And this IC may be in another form already mentioned. Please visit a Sony Tech. The work inside a projection TV is very complicated, you will need to see the specialist. Give them this note and go from here. Let me know how they handle the repair.Thanks for asking and good luck!

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.
