G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher. You can purchase a new 42" TV starting at $598 from walmart.com, so anything more than $250. . . .probably not worth it.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Here's my suggestion , unhook all the external components to the TV and leave the TV unplugged for more than a few minutes (a day/overnight). The next day plug the TV into the wall outlet (not the powerstrip) without anything hooked up to it, and turn it on. See if it comes on. Sometimes unplugging for a few minutes/hours is not long enough for it to reset itself.

Re: tv kdl-55ex620 red light blink 8 times Do a Power Reset. 1. While the TV is off, unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet. 2. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds. 3. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. (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.) 4. Turn on the TV. 5. When the TV powers on and a picture is displayed, reset the TV to factory default settings.
  • If the Reset message does not appear and the TV turns off and on, begin again from step 5.
  • If the standby light begins blinking eight times, return to step 1.
6. After the Reset message appears, allow the TV to reset. Do not press any buttons on the remote control or on the TV and do not make any other adjustments for 1 minute. 7. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. 8. Allow the TV to remain without power for 10 seconds. 9. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. 10. Turn on the TV.
  • The initial setup screen displays if the above procedures were performed correctly.
11. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the initial set up. 12. Perform a system software (firmware) update.

Tv won't turn on 4 blinking led


Hi,
Red led blinks 4 times is an error code that shows that fan is not running in tv, check fans connections and make sure all are plugged properly.
Thanks.

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.

Tv will not light up.


I do not have expertise in cable TV systems. A power failure when you have the TV connected to a system which is normally always on or on standby may need resetting if interrupted. Try the TV on an aerial or with its scart input, but disconnected from the cable unit. The blinking red light indicates a fault

I have a SONY KD-30XS955 that I purchased in June of 2005. About two weeks ago I started to experience problems getting the TV to "light" or completely power on. In the past when I experienced this problem, I would simply unplug the set for about a minute, plug it in again and the set would power up completely. Problem solved. Recently, however, I found that this remedy no longer works. After I turn the power on, following the initial "click" of the power being engaged, there is a secondary click, followed by the "Stand By / Timer" red light on the front blink 7 times rapidly in succession and then repeating. Since the problem first occurred, I have been in touch with SONY customer care as well as their parts and accessories department. The most helpful of their techs seemed 90% sure that either the Thermistor or Capacitor (or both) needed replacing. However, since that day the TV has worked intermittently with no problems. Some days it would work fine and light while others it would not light at all. I'm aware that the 7 blinks denotes a High Voltage Shutdown. I live in a high rise in NYC, where for the past two weeks the weather has been extremely hot and humid. So much so that there have been rumors of Con Edison using brown outs to protect the power grid from overload. So I guess my first question would be is it possible that the TV is unable to draw enough voltage to light or power on since it has worked several times since I first encountered the problem two weeks back? Because a service call is $100 just to show up and diagnos the problem, I am reluctant to place one if this indeed might be the case. However, I have been very happy with the TV thus far and would be willing to have it repaired should the total cost be reasonable and it is indeed worth saving. A few people have suggested to me getting a power booster or even a special power strip which would regulate the voltage. Are these indeed options or is a service call the best remedy in this case? Any help, suggestions or advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, insight and expertise...
