A 4 flash shutdown indicates a backlight problem. It can be acused by a bad backlight inverter board (the backlight power supply) or by a defective backlight in the panel. There are fuses on the backlight inverter board called "picofuses" which will need to be checked in order to isolate the problem to the board or the panel. If the fuses are good, you have to replace the panel (very expensive!). If the fuses are opne, most likely the back light inverter board has failed.

Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

SOURCE: 13 standby blinks. Sony KDL-52W3000

It's a power supply related issue. It's an error code for a certain circuit pathway, but I'm not sure 100% sure what code 13 can be because I don't have the Service Manual for your exact TV model number. But, here's where you can get one:
http://www.service-manual.net/ashop/catalogue.php?cat=231&exp=&resultpage=108&shop=1
It will have all the info on the trouble codes for your TV. Schematics, Diagrams and Part number list for repairs.

Hi,
4 times red standby light blinking shows problem of back light failure for some reason.
Possible cause could be either back light inverter boards are defective or power supply board is not providing proper voltages to that inverter boards to function properly.
Power supply board is available separately but back light inverter boards come along with new lcd panel (screen) and it would be costly fix as lcd panel cost would be more than tv worth.
Let me know your expertise level to provide you further info.
Thanks.

Blank screen flashing red light 8x


Eight time blinks to sony TVs indicates Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board

Standby flashes 3 times pauses and flashes again. can't get tv to turn on


Hi,
The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.
Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
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.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

Hi,
4 blinks indicated of backlight malfunction. The unit shutsdown to avoid overload to the inverter board.
Check the backlights, busted backlight has a physical indication of fault like blackened end, crack end. You must replaced the busted one and your unit will back to normal operation again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

Sony Bravia KDL-40W4500 turns off


This can indicate a problem with the high voltage circuits. Since this is a new set, it should still be under warranty. DO NOT open up the unit as that will void the warranty. Return the set or request warranty service. Note the 8 blinks when you request service as that should allow them to bring the correct replacement parts.

Keep us posted.

Have a new Sony Bravia KDL-40W500 keeps turning off into standby mode with 8 flashes.


Hello,

There is some confusion on the model (KDL-40W500 vs. KDL-40V2500), so I will direct this toward the 40V2500.

On the KDL-40V2500, an 8X blink means the scan processer has gone bad, and the BU board needs to be replaced. If the problem is intermittent, the the AU board might be the problem, but if it all the time, bank on the BU.

A competent repair shop should be able to help you, or you can try calling Sony directly for assitance.

Hope this helps you...
