First thing to do is reset ( see link below) and see if it resets otherwise if problem continues it will need some work

Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits. There are some common breakdowns in the High Voltage circuits in this set. One is the flyback transformer. Another is a small high voltage capacitor in the sweep corrction circuit. There is a cap that goes open in a high voltage circuit (C6532) which needs to be replaced.

    And to finish off a link from fix but on a 32" with sony's support line no.



    If you are not tecnophobic I would ring sony get what info you can on it from them and replace IC refered to by them and FixYA post. Then the cap, or call in a tec if reset fails, pretty common fault from the sounds of it.



    Good luck

    You just have to read this, cheap start ($9) well worth investment to possible fix. Link to actual post is below.



    Question on your exact TV.....I am having some problems with this 36" tv. Sometimes it will turn on and sometimes it won`t. I had it on all day last Sunday and shut it off and the next day it would not turn on. It will make the usual clicking noises from the relays and the standby light blinks, but thats it. I do have a service manual for this and according to the 7 blinks from the standby light it indicates "horizontal deflection stopped".



    Answer.. Usually just IC8002. B & D Enterprises has them for 9.00 each.

    800-458-6053

    Get the DB version, it's improved



    and the original poster replied......



    Thanks Leonard, the IC`s did the trick! I am glad it fixed it, it would not be fun to troubleshoot a tv that big. Rob

The power light is just blinking red on my panasonic 1080i hdtv. cant even switch it off using the power button. picture and sound come on for about a second when the tv is switched on after power cord...


The power light keeps flashing and the tv won't turn on. If you unplug for a minute and hit the power button it sound like it is coming on then it shuts off and the red power light flashes slowly. The TV is a Panisonic 1080i HDTV, about 6-7 years old.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive 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.

I can't get my tv to turn on... nothing but blinking red light


Dont know if this will work for you or not, but my brother gave me his because of the same problem. It would power up and a green light would come on, then after 10 -15 seconds it would change to a red blinking light. I plugged a usb cable into the service port on the side and left the other end unplugged. Then plugged the tv back into the power. i took a small screwdriver and ran across the contacts in the end of the usb cable until both the red light and the green lights came on. I did this several times listening fot the clicking noises in the TV. after doing this for approx 20 seconds, i pressed the power button and the TV worked fine. 5 days now and no problems. Only thing I can think is I somehow reset the software and now it is working fine. Hope some of you can figure this out and give it a try. if the TV is just sitting, you have nothing to lose

Red Blinking Light/No Picture


7 blinks? Many have replaced caps on the SMPS board, with success: 2662 is a 1000μF 25v 85°C with 2663 and 2664 both 25v 1 00μF 25v. Another model: http://www.hotelkaveka.com/9944CU.jpg

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,

Kds55a2000 red light flashing


The SONY Owner's Manual for the KDS55A2000 does not state what the 4 times blinking Power LED means.

However, my Sony Extended Care Service support insists that the projection lamp is the cause for the 4X blinking LED
Power light.
I do not agree but am forced to buy a replacement lamp (not cheap) to prove that the problem is probably the fan, as the TV Technician states elsewhere in these FixYa support questions and answer
