    I have the same problem with my Sony TV (Model KV28WS2U). Last night when I was watching TV all of a sudden the screen went blank and the standby light started flashing. The TV swtches off when the standby is switched off and when the standby is swtched on again, the same thing happens, i.e., the light keeps flashing and the TV does not respond to the Remote Control.

    I'm having the same problem. My sony KV-32FS320 worked fine for about a year. All of a sudden one day, it takes pushing the power button repeatedly to turn it on. A week later and we get nothing. Tried calling Sony and they say the best they can do is get me an appointment with a TV repair man who will charge me $99.00 Just to look at it. Then God knows how much after that. I'd hate to trash a TV so quickly, but I'm tired of getting stonewalled by Sony when I ask for a little accountability regarding their products. I think I'm done with the brand. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

    book suggesting pushing on button again. Did nothing. Have tried all buttons on remote control & button on TV. You can turn it off so standby stops flashing, but when you turn it on again it starts flashing again and no picture comes on.

  • annnn Jun 01, 2008

    Same exact problem, it just started happening. We can still get the TV on every once in a while after much fussing and light flashing but it's getting tougher and tougher to get the TV to turn on.

  • wohilton Jul 08, 2008

    Stand by light flashes 7 times and tv will not come on. I unplugged the set for several hours and tried again with the same results. I just tried one more time and the set came on.

  • wohilton Jul 08, 2008

    Stand by light flashes 7 times and the tv will not come on. I tried leaving the set unplugged for several hours, but that gave the same results. I tried again later on and the TV came on like it usually does.

    when you turn power on, all you get is a flashing red/standby timer light. after approx. 10 minutes the picture comes on and blinks on/off.

    I have the 52 " Flat High definition SONY TV, The power went off and the red light ( Standby light) flushing twice, pause , Flushing twice, then pause.... repeat the same way and the power couldn't turn on at all, unless I remove the power cord for a while. After I replug on the power cord, TV can be turned on, but few minutes later problem restarted again. What a frustration--the NBA game ever can be finished without this problem.

  • Anonymous Apr 08, 2009

    My sony TV has a problem with the red light blinking twice then pause. I followed other suggestion which I did unplug the TV for 12 hours, then the TV works normal for 1 week. But the problem comes back again and again. Custumer service is bad, a technician came to my house and did nothing for the TV and took $60 co-pay. I think the best idea is trash the TV and Never buy a SONY TV anymore. I own other TV brand ( Samsung, Panasonic), They are all good without any problem untill now.

I had the same problem guys! This is what I did:

My T.V. wouldn't turn on. The standby light was flashing six times, then four, then seven...I called Sony and they told me to unplug it for a couple of minutes, then try it again...didn't work....BUT, I have found a solution:

Try unpluging your T.V. for 4 hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for me! It's called a "hard reset" by sony. I had my T.V. unplugged for the whole day though.

Posted on Jan 06, 2008

  • lina5129 Jan 12, 2011

    I also have the same problem with my Sony TV. Its flashes 6 or 7 times too. I have tried the "hard reset" and it works temporarily. As soon as you plug the TV back in it will turn on but the very next day the same problem remains with the flashing standby light. I dont want to continue to unplug the TV every night since I know this can't be good for the TV. Please let me know if anyone has another suggestion. Thanks

  • acuar1 Aug 13, 2011

We have a Sony Bravia KDL52w3000, it's only 2 years old and every once in a while when we turn it on, we hear a little buzz, then it jumps directly to Standby. After that, it won't turn on anymore. We called Sony they told us to get it serviced. Got an authorized Sony tech, a Sears tech, and he said it's the PC power module and needs to be replaced for about $450. We delayed a week, it happened again, so we called Sears and they sent another tech to fix the problem...he diagnosed the tv and said we need to replace the entire board for $2806.00 and that doesn't include labor, that's right, there is no mistype here...We asked Sears for a third opinion since there was such a huge gap in the estimate and a "senior tech" was sent to us, but without even looking at the tv, he walked to our front door, said it was a waste of his time, and then suggested we should just pay the $2806.00 plus labor or get a new tv.
Our tv is out of warranty, we paid $2400.00 for the stupid tv 2 years ago, and now they want to charge us more than it costs to buy a new. Sony won't stand by it's product, so and I'm telling anyone with any sense that will listen...DON'T CALL SEARS AND DON'T BUY A SONY!!!!!!!!!

TV was working fine. I put the DVD in standby mode to answer the phone. I came back 10min later and the TV stand by light was flashing 4 time pauses and again. I tried everything, reset button, unplus for days. Keep it plugged for hours. Nothing. This is my last Sony TV. My TV is a Trinitron KV-27FV16.

I found these (blinking) fault codes online and thought I would share with you all:

Found the codes:

* Unit is dead, 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 - 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, check T603 and R672.
* 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.
* Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis 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. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are 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.

My red light blinks twice. ..I tried to unplug my Sony Bravia for and hold the power button for 30 seconds and nothing happened the 1st time. I did it again the second time and when I plugged my tv up it clicked 3-4 times by itself but still nothing. Am i able to remove my tv from standby mode? Would this prevent these issues?

    After a hard days work I go to turn on my tv and nothing yet. This is day 2. I am so mad. I ended up paying 3x's the amount of the tv with my sears charge plus credit card. I missed 2 payments and they got court order to garnish my wages. With all that being said spending over 3,880 for a tv set that is now out of style due to flat screens and to top it all off my tv is not working. Now I see why the sales rep gave me a hug when I bought the tv less than 5 years ago. I know people that had their tv's since the 80's and nothing went wrong. Shame on you Sears and Sony. A big waste of my money. Never again.

So it's not just the Sony it's the Toshiba as well, and men i love my 52" Ah well i guess it's back to the store and black friday has already past., Ah well!!

Other threads on the web indicates it's a IK blanking circuit problem (the tv will automatically blank when certain picture specifications are not met). The temporary fix is to turn up the 'screen' voltage slightly by adjusting a knob at the HV coil at the back of the set.
Another solution offered was to bypass the IK blanking circuit with three diodes near the jungle IC (?). I'm interested to hear from qualified Sony TV repairmen whether this is a proper solution to an apparently common problem!

SOURCE: sony tv timer light flashes wont turn on

Same exact thing happened to my 27" Trinitron purchased in 1998. I tried all the rudamentary stuff that Sony had on their esupport page, but nothing worked. In our case, it went out while my daughter was watching it. I think the time has come to scrap it, and consider a different television, and I don't think I'll go with Sony this time. I hope the rest of you have better luck.

SOURCE: TV wont turn on, sandby light flashes 7 times.

Any malfunction associated with a flashing stand-by light usually indicates a circuit problem or defective component. Unfortunately, the days of taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed. Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost effective to repair.

My sony kdl-46v3000 standby light blinks 5 times tv wont turn on


The TV enters standby mode when there is no signal for 30 seconds. https://docs.sony.com/release/KDL46V3000.pdf
I searched standby using Ctrl+F and found this information. It seems you should be able to bring it out of standby using the power button on the remote. You want to make sure there is an input connected and if it is connected to a PC that the PC isn't telling the TV to go into standby.
Try pressing the input button and changing inputs once you press the power button and the Standby is flashing.
If this doesn't work you may need to contact Sony Support.
