Hi,

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
Thanks for contacting Fixya

Tv shutting off timer light blinking


The problem you describe is not really related to a timer function being set. The unit is in shutdown and the light is blinkng to let you know there is a problem.
There are several possible causes. the most common is a failure in the vertical deflection circuit due to a bad vertical IC and possibly a capacitor, zener diode and resistor.

MY RCA TVE WONT TURN ON


Open up the front and check for fluid under the CRT circuit boards. The one on the right (as you face your TV) is the blue one. For some reason, the diaphram for the glycerin in the blue optic is on the back side and leans down. It tends to leak and spill on to the circuit board below.
Tell tale sign is the pool of fluid when you access the front chassis. Pull off the speaker grill and shine a flashlight on the inside underneath the CRT circuit boards and look for the fluid. Glycerin doesn't dry. TV is powering off most likely to protect itself from the shorts.

So far you have done all you can and you have done everything right. The fact that the TV turned off by itself and then turned back on by itself suggests that one or more solder joints have come loose inside the set. A qualified tech should find this easy to fix, and Sony sets are always worth repairing, so it is now time to have the set serviced by a tech experienced in Sony standard sets.
