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.

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"

Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000 turns off with blinking front light.


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

My Sony BRAVIA KDL-46V3000 Television has messed up colors on left side when first turning it on.....after 5 or 10 mins the picture is normal.. Also without turning on the receiver (only TV) can't select...


This also happened to me and may continue to get worse... If it goes away for a while after warming up, then it is the same problem... The LCD panel is probably going out, when that happens the cost to repair it is more than the tv is worth... If it is in warranty then you can have it replaced or fixed.

13 standby blinks. Sony KDL-52W3000


It's a power supply related issue. It's an error code for a certain circuit pathway, but I'm not sure 100% sure what code 13 can be because I don't have the Service Manual for your exact TV model number. But, here's where you can get one:
http://www.service-manual.net/ashop/catalogue.php?cat=231&exp=&resultpage=108&shop=1
It will have all the info on the trouble codes for your TV. Schematics, Diagrams and Part number list for repairs.

Sony Bravia KDL-40V3000 standby light blinking


I just worked on this last week 13 blinks means there is a problem with the backlights.So it can be 1 of 2 things bad inverter board( which costs less than $200) or the panel in which case you can thow the TV away as it will probably cost as much for a new TV.Unfortunately the set I worked on ended up being panel. If you try the inverter board just take your time removing it its plugged in rather tight I gently tapped it out with a screwdriver to get it started.

Tv bravia kdl 40v3000 problem turning on


To wayne: The balancer board is in fact available by itself. You can get it at many different parts depots here on the web. I just suffered from a similar problem, on the same tv and it solved my problem perfectly (Stupid 13 blink, blink code...)

The searchable part number is SSB400WA20. Its referred to as a voltage inverter (for the backlight of the lcd panel.)
Good luck!!!
