This could be a sign of the picture tube starting to fail. If you are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages, try the following:

Remove the back cover and locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). Do not touch the red wire!! There should be 2 controls on the rear of the transformer. One should be marked screen and the other focus. Turn the screen one slightly clockwise. Plug in the set and try turning it on. If hte picture returns, the picture tube is starting to fail and changing the screen control is only a temporary "fix" that will buy you time to find a replacement set. It may last weeks or months or fail again within a few days.

Please try that and update this with the results.

Thanks,
Dan

Hello

Six blinks of standby light in Sony TVs denotes the absence of horizontal oscillation.

No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.
In most cases the Ic is foud defective. anyway check its soldering points for any loose contact, or bad solerings. Check the line drive transformer, a very little transformer soldered directly to the main printed circuit board, very close to the horizontal output transistor. Check its primary winidngs for open. If it gets open no horizontal drive signal will be present at the base of the horizontal output transitor, that also may the cause of horizontal stop.

TV went OFF


The standby light should be blinking in a repeated pattern. Count the blinks and report that number here. This will indicate the circuit that is defective and will allow us to provide a repair suggestion.

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.

Please reply couple of questions about TV to guess what could be wrong.

2- Please intimate exact model of TV, written on sticker pasted at back of TV. That will help me to check its schematics.

Sony Wega Triniton KV-32FS100 TV

For the last week my TV has been going to a black screen for 10 seconds or so then the picture returns. It has been continual. Last night it stopped going to black screen, but now the standby light flashes 5 consecutive times and the color went haywire. A lot of red and everything that is suppose to be black is green.

I did a soft and hard reset with no success. What's wrong and is it worth fixing? Bought new in November 2002.
