Sony Trinitron won't turn on, Standby/Timer light now blinks 2x

Worked fine until last night when it just turned itself off. Standby/Timer light flashing. I tried to turn it on and heard a series of clicks then the Standby/Timer light started flashing again. First 2x every three seconds; then I tried turning on again. Then 3x every three seconds; tried turning on again; Then 4x; tried turning on again. Then 5x, with 5th time staying lit for three seconds when the series would start again. Went online and found some suggestions to ''reset'' by unplugging. I unplugged for 15 minutes. Then hit On and the clicks happened again and now the S/T light is blinking 2x every three seconds. I'm now going to unplug it overnight (It's now 11:15 pm in NY) and see if that changes anything in the morning. Any thoughts?

If you unplug it for more than 30 minutes and it still doesn't work, I highly doubt that leaving it overnight will make a difference. The TV tube/screen itself can hold a charge for a LONG time, but the rest of the electronics in the television should lose their charge which will cause most things on the television to reset.

If unplugging it for more than 30 minutes doesn't help, you may have to get the television serviced.

Sony makes some great stuff, but sometimes there's problems just like any other electronics.

Good luck!

KV-32xbr400 switch problem


Many of the later model Sony TV’s have a built in self-diagnosis function. If the timer/standby indicator is blinking, this could be an indication of a problem with the unit. The diagnostic blinking will occur automatically with no action required by you to engage it. in yor case you have 5 blinks that´s why the last is short to be possible the count..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.
