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