Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television
My sony bravia 40 inch tv is 16 months old and when i turned it on today it shut itself off and the stand by light blinks red 13 times then goes black tv comes on for less than a second and back to square one can anyone help?
Try leaving the TV unpugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you flashing red light codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

I can't solve this problem really, because it's happening to me, too. I don't have warranty for the tv and just today Sony said the repair estimate is $1,500. that's more than the price of the tv?? Any suggestions on how to get out of this one...
