What is the brand name to your TV? 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/

SOURCE: No power

It sounds like the backlight or an inverter board on the television may have failed. Check your warranty status on the television to see if you can get it repaired by the manufacturer for free.

SOURCE: Display Standby/on light blinks red - screen will

Hi there, the green light upon startup means the circuit boards are powering up. At some point ( a bad capacitor in your case) the system "runs" into a bad component ( the capacitor) and this faulty component will shut the system down ( for safety reasons the tv has a built in device that trips the circuit when a problem is encountered), this in turn shuts down "the power-up" cycle and the unit shuts off and displays the red light again....You will need to call a professional to have the circuitboards checked out. You can, if you wish, open the unit and use my guide to help you locate and diagnose the most common problem with tv's having the symptoms you've mentioned....The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol! If this helped you any (or not) then please rate...Also I am very interested in your progress with this issue.fb6651e.jpg

TV won't turn on. flashes a series of 5 red lights instead of turning green


Usually Sony and LG Blinking Codes are the same. Here is what I have.
  • Unit is dead, No blinks - Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse,
  • Continuous blink once a second, no pausing - No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.
  • One blink - not used for the self-diagnosis
  • Two blinks - B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits.
  • Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit,
  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted.
  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately.
  • Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.
  • Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code.
  • Nine blinks - Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive).
  • Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board.

    Sony Blinking Codes
    Many of the later model Sony TV's have a built in Self- Diagnosis function. If
    the timer/standby indicator is blinking, this could be an indication of the
    problem with the unit. The diagnostic blinking will occur automatically with no
    action required by you to engage it.
    The timing of the blinking you see would be as follows: two to eight blinks
    (depending on the fault) about a third of a second apart, then pauses for 3
    seconds, then the two to eight blinks about a third of a second apart again.
    Here is a list of the problems that might have occurred indicated by the
    number of blinks. The words in parentheses are those which you will see for
    each of these faults on a diagnosis screen described later in this article.
    Unit is dead and there are no blinks---Problem in the standby power
    section. Might check fuse, R607, Q601, IC601, R612 and VDR601 (should
    show open)
    Continuous Blink Once A Second, No Pausing As IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground or held
    high), IK video path is defective.
    ONE Blink--- not used for the self-diagnosis
    TWO Blinks---B+ over current protection (OCP) , unit goes to the standby
    mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of
    any of the circuits.
    THREE Blinks---B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby
    mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power
    supply circuit, check T603 and R672.
    FOUR Blinks---No Vert. Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single
    horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
    FIVE Blinks---AKB circuit (AKB), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about
    30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with
    the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C
    board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. Also unit be in IK blanking,
    try turning up screen slightly.
    SIX Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking selfdiagnosis
    function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.
    SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k
    and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply
    regulation and horizontal circuits.
    EIGHT Blinks---Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and
    blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401 and 402.
    Intermittent problems ?? This is a great feature. You can also bring up
    these fault codes ON-SCREEN to see a list of the problem numbers with the
    abbreviation of the problem and the number of times this problem has
    occurred. This is slightly different than entering the service mode. To see the
    diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:
    Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up
    a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred.
    Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC.
    We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described
    above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink
    codes.
    So, now that you know about these self-diagnostics, how do you use them?
    Say that you have a set with a black screen. You see that the LED is blinking
    4 times....This would tell you that you have no vertical and that is why the
    video is muted. If it was blinking 6 times, you would know that you have a
    horizontal fault.
    It's not a sure cure, but it's a little better than a poke in the eye with a sharp
    stick.
    IMPORTANT: after you repair the unit, PLEASE clear the values on this
    diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault is
    corrected, so if you don't clear them, you'll be seeing "old" fault codes the
    next time you enter this screen.
    Clearing is done by going into the service mode ( display, channel, 5,
    volume plus, then power ) then press 8 and Enter, which of course returns
    everything to the factory preset condition.

    Here are the blink codes. Two blinks - B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault.

Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits. Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some newer models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 is defective on the D board. Nine blinks - Replace D 6116 and D 6301 on the "G" board, do not resolder as this will fix the problem temporary. Or Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive). Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board. Intermittent problems? This is a great feature.

    This is Sony's way of telling you that there is a short in you set.Probably the horizontal deflection circuit.(Horizontal output transistor shorted??). Also any other short. You need to take it to a techincian and have it checked out. It would be wise to get an estimate! Stargazer
