Question about Sony KV-27FV16 TV

Sony Trinitron Power Surge 5 Blinks

Model KV-36fs13 I had to replace the meter box in my home. More than likely the problem is due to a power surge or sudden drop in power. The TV will not power on. When I attempt to power it on I get 13 flashing red blinks then a continuous pattern of 5 blinks. I suspect a blown power supply. How can I diagnose the problem. I am not a tech but have some limited knowledge. If I can find the board or supply that went bad could you recomend where I can get the board repaired. The TV is much too heavy to bring to a repair center. Thanks John

Re: Sony Trinitron Power Surge 5 Blinks

Once you have diagnosed the problem, the following link is to all parts for your tv stocked at partstore. they generally have better prices than the dealers and repair shops.
KV-36fs13 parts

you can try the dead-tv kit from fixyourowntv if you have some basic experience with soldering and circuit repair.

Five blinks means, "IK (AKB)" (white balance). The probable causes listed by Sony are as follows:
1) Video OUT (IC561) is faulty (A board)
2) IC355 is faulty (A board)
3) Screen (G2) is improperly adjusted.

not sure what the 13 blinks are for.

hope this helps,

My Sony kv-32hs240 turns on and after one hour

Sounds like you've got a short in your house electrical lines. Try using a surge protector (AKA power strip) between the power cord and wall outlet. If you've already got a surge protector, try replacing it.

Sony KV-34HS420 shuts of and stand-by light blinks

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

NO Signal KV32fv26 Sony Trinitron

I think your problem is in tuner stage.

1. Check 32V dc available on BT connection on tuner.
2.If 32V available on BT,connect dc meter and put the unit on auto search and check the BT pin on tuner.The BT voltage will decrease and increase while it tunes.
3.If nothing stored after programming replace tuner.

Good luck

Sony Trinitron KV - 36FS13 36" flatscreen

Hello MLD110368
I think, TV screen has white-balance failure thats why TV light blinks 5 times.
While living in Pakistan, I can't fix your TV there. In my point of view, it doesn't cost much and you should contact nearest Sony repair shop.

Sony 36" Trinitron Problem

Good day.
There may have been some problem in the horiontal transistor. Also, Check for the zener diode that controls the supply going to the flyback. It might got busted due to the sudden supply surge.
