Re: Won't turn on or off - red light blinking

This sounds like a power supply problem, visually check the fuses and if they look ok, and you have a backgroud in electronics test to see if the set is prducing Dc voltage, you will need a multimeter and a schematic to do this with. However, if you do not have a background in electronics please take the set to a qualifide TV repair shop to have the repairs done.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Sony wega trinitron won't turn on

  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
  • 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. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

    Blank screen, no sound

    If ti blinks three times, then it may be an issue with the flyback transformer. It's called "three strikes" tries three times to come on, and after that enters a safety shutdown mode to protect the TV. Might need to have a professional shop take a look at it.
