Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Sony bravia flashes 13 times then turns off

My 1.5 year old tv model 40v3000 flashes the stand by light 13 times then shuts off. there is a flicker that the screen works and the computer inputs information on the screen. code 13 indicates a balancer? In diagnostic mode it counts 39 errors. No I don't want to take it to a repair man, I am a computer tech & a mechanic. I just can't pay a guy to screw in a new board. I need to know what part has failed.

Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board.
The best thing that would help you is a Service Manual. It will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, schematics, test points, and part# lists. It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searching on the internet with the part number.
The Service Manual usually cost under $20 over the internet. Nodevice.com, Eserviceinfo.com, and Servicemanuals.net. If anybody had it, they would. If they don't have one for your TV, you can send a request for the Service Manual under your model number.
It's the best thing you can use to repair the TV. I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

When turning on the screen comes on for 2 seconds, then red blinking light flashes 13 times and repeats flashing.


Standard blinking codes for Bravia sets for US only goes to 10 blinks which points to faulty or short circuited components inside whereas the Australian range of KDL's goes to 13 blinks of the LED which points to a faulty balancer and must be taken into a service department.

Sony fb3 boad kdl40v3000 Our tv would not turn on except the flashing standby light. Technician told us we need to replace the fb3 board. The cost is $395 for the board and $185 labor. Is this reasonable?...


This is not a unusual amount for repair. Most repair facilities do not like using used parts on sets they have to warranty after a repair. They would then be liable if were to fail and then they would be replacing it at a greater cost to them. You could check with Sony and see what their retail cost is on the part. Their Customer Service Line is 1800-222-SONY.
I hope this helps,

My sony bravia tv is flashing red stand by light


Try leaving the TV unpugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you flashing red light codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

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!!!
