Mine blinks like 5 or 6 times - picture goes out, but sound stays. It has been at the repair shop for 1.5 months and the tech finally sees the problem. He says 3 new tubes will fix it, but the blue is discontinued. Can anyone confirm?

Hello - I had the same problem. If you call a tech they will say that the picture tube is broken and that it will cost $350 + labor to fix it because Sony does not make the part! Do not believe that cock and bull story.

All you need to do it to remove the front lower panel where the speakers are located. Behind it there is a cardboard / plywood board fixed on to the TV with 4 screws. Remove this board. you will then find a switch that contains 6 bolts/screws that can be adjusted:- 3 (upper) and 3 (lower) sets of adjustment knobs or large screws that are probably marked as G(for green), R(for red) and B(for blue). You will probably have to adjust them very slightly while the TV is on. Be careful so that you dont shock your self! And Voila, the problem will be fixed!!

I am not an electrical engineer, but work as an IT professional. It saved me a bunch of money, not to say a happy family/household!

No, not screwed, but you will need it repaired...
Sounds like convergence issue and possibly ring-cracks on the amps themselves until the heat and vibration did them in..
Now the shutdown circuit won't let you power-up the set...
This unit uses two STK392-020 Sanyo built amps. Those, together with testing and replacing some low ohm resistors should have this unit up and running again in short order...

No picture comes up but tv powers up and the stand-by light blinks for about 3 to5 seconds, i also hear sound when i turn it on and change channels

If in shutdown the power light should continue to blink a specific number of blinks which is a error code.

This set is prone to bad picture tubes (has 3) so depending on code may be a fatal issue----sets will before flash bright red, green, or blue when this happens and shut off.

I have a 51HW40 sony TV. A few problems green horizontal retrace that curves flashes green and turns off (about 2 times a month) I wait turn it back on and its fine Codes that have been tripped: 6: Low b ...

Hello: Have you tried to adjust you Green Screen control on the focus block assembly. located behind the front panel assembly. Here is a solution that might help you, turn off the green by turning off this control, make sure u look at the block and make sure you are not turning the green focus knob instead of scrn crl. Turning the control slowly to the left the retrace lines should disappear as the green video darkens. Then turn the control slowly to the right just until the retrace lines reappear, then turn back slowly left just until the lines go away. If the screen is Blanking on green tube only then you have a video blanking problem on the main signal board. Or possibly a IK bias problem. It is also possible that the green CRT is defective. The FBT is not bad because the screens are lighting up indicating you have high voltageand heater voltage which is derived from one of the secondary windings of the FB. If it is a Blanking problem i would look into replacing the A Board assembly.

Blue light blinking-

I would say you are lucky to get a pretty fair price, sounds like a convergence problem- if the tv is a projection wide screen. worth the investment Julio

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
