My KDL-40VL130 turns off with 13 blinks

I have a KDL-40VL130 or KDL-46V3000 (Same tv, different size.)

Worked perfectly, now when i turn it on the screen shows the picture for about 2 seconds, then it shuts off and the standby LED blinks 13 times, then pauses, then 13 times, over and over.

Any help would be great!
-Mike

SOURCE: please help

That is the blink code for the lamp ballast. Here is the more complicated explanation from the service manual.

IC2301(pin11) detects the error of LCD Power C.B.A. and Lamp,
then indicates the error when an inner malfunction of LCD Power
C.B.A. occurs, the Lamp voltage becomes more than 130V or
less than 30V, Lamp current becomes more than 5A, or the Lamp is blown

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Trouble code: Standby LED blinks 9 times

Try pushing the buttons on the remote and let me know what comes up on the screen if anything.
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.

The 4 blinks is a fan error and if you ordered the correct fan then yes it will fix the problem. The most common fan to go bad in this model is the lamp fan (from the back its the big one on the left) I have seen other fans cause this problem from time to time though. the correct way to find out what fan is causing the problem is when the set is acting up you need to take some voltage measurements on a plug on the back board (this requires removing the back) . Missycam70 unfortunately the service man was correct if he came out and the set was working there would be nothing he could do. you have to look at it from his side, if he came out and put all new fans in it and then the problem was the ASU/DSU (fan control board) then he would look like an idiot and have to fix you set again and most likly lose money on the deal.

Sony tv model number KDL-40W600B with total black screen. Not getting any picture at all, including the loading screen and no sound.


Is the TV showing that it has power? Try connecting to a different source. How old is the TV? It could be that the chipset has malfunctioned, the LCD panel or Digitizer is damaged, if that is the case, sadly it is often cheaper to buy a new TV than it is too fix them. Good Luck!

Tv guide doesn't work anymore


I have a Sony model KDL-32BXR6 that the TV Guide first showed no listings this past weekend. Last night when I entered the Guide the screen displaying the Setup/Display Setup Progress came up stating "In Progress". Same thing this morning. Something must have changes with the input signal if this occurred with two different sets.

My flat screen tv shuts off and standby led blinks 13 times.


Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"

Sounds like the power supply may be failing. Count the beeps next time, that will give you the error code.

Sony kdl-40v5100 has handshake problem


1.This issue sounds as though the TV connection circuit has an issue.
2. You have changed the DVR and the HDMI cables and you still have an issue with the video (pink screen) indicates a video circuit issue ( improper voltage or current) at the video section of the circuit.
3. This will require some troubleshooting by a qualified tech.
4. To make sure, try connecting another properly working LCD TV to the cable box or DVR an check.If you get a picture and sound properly it is the TV.
5. Usually a cable box is QA'd (quality assured) by the company and will not be sent unless tested 1st
