Great, the clock is gone but it still impossible to take pictures. I believe that it was not the problem after all. Thanks for the information.

I think you meant to say at 3 o'clock (see picture). If not, I don't see the clock you speak of. But, try and answer your question ... this is the Timer clock. It's on and waiting to be set.

You might still be able to take photos, it will just happen after 3 seconds.

I think you have the timer on. Turn it off by pressing the Pad left, then Up to select Off and then press the center of the Pad (OK) to cause a check mark to appear next to the Off word.

Try this and let me know what happens.

    I apologize, I found a notice about the blinking clock. It is found in the manual under error messages on page 141. Here is the picture. The clock is not set. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work at all because of this, but that's what the icon means.

    You bet. If there are other errors. Let me know what they are and I'll help you out. Make sure the batteries are new (not rechargables). Make sure the settings are on Auto and teh card in the computer is the right type. These are usually the basic things to take a photo and beyond that is possibly a problem with the camera. Let me know.

    By the way, I read your message again and understand what you meant by a clock on the right that's at 9' o clock. Duh. =) The icon reads 9'o-clock. I thought you meant it was at the 9 'o clock position in relation to the camera.

Sony wega projection KPFR53M94 UNABLE TO ON,RED BLINKS 9 TIMES FOLLOWED BY GREEN 11 TIMES BLINKS.


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.
The timing of the blinking you see would be as follows: two to nine blinks, (depending on the fault), about a third of a second apart, then a pause for 3 seconds, then the two to nine blinks about a third of a second apart again.
Here is a list of the problems that might have occurred indicated by the number of blinks. The words in parentheses are those, which you will see for each of these faults on a diagnosis screen described later in this article.
  • Unit is dead, No blinks - Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse, R607, Q601, IC601, R612 and VDR601 (should show open).
  • Continuous blink once a second, no pausing - No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.
  • One blink - not used for the self-diagnosis
  • Two blinks - B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits.
  • Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.
  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
  • 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.
  • Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.
  • 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.
  • Eight blinks - 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.
  • Nine blinks - Replace D 6116 and D 6301 on the "G" board, do not resolder as this will fix the problem temporary. Or Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive).
  • Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board.
Intermittent problems? This is a great feature. You can also bring up these fault codes on-screen to see a list of the problem numbers with the abbreviation of the problem and the number of times this problem has occurred. This is slightly different than entering the service mode. To see the diagnostic screen, press the following buttons: Display, Channel, 5, volume Minus, ( not plus ) then Power. This brings up a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred. Each of the problems named, are abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC. We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink codes.
Now that you know about these self-diagnostics, how do you use them? Say that you have a set with a black screen. You see that the LED is blinking four times. This would tell you that you have no vertical sweep, which is why the video is muted. If it was blinking 6 times, you would know that you have a horizontal fault. It's not a sure cure..
IMPORTANT: After you repair the unit, you MUST clear the values on this diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault is corrected, so if you don't clear them, you'll be seeing "old" fault codes the next time you enter this screen. Clearing is done by going into the service mode (display, channel, 5, volume plus, then power ). Press 8 and Enter, which returns everything to the factory preset condition,

I am getting a 14 blink code on my Panasonic TC-P50s30. Do you know what is causing this


Sounds like main digital board fault. 14 blinks denotes that. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Everything appears to display correctly, but seems to be unable to recive input signal. ie. no signal on led meter.


Please check your default audio signal, you can find a little speaker icon next to the clock on the right side on the bottom of the screen.

Check if line in is open and check also the other lines if they are open

Have a nice Christmas

let me know :O)

Red blinking warning light beside clock in center of dash. What is it?


This is the factory installed "Security" light. It blinks to let you know that the security system is active, and to ward off potential theives. It's part of the factory anti-theft system. Also, it is a diode, and consumes virtually no battery power.
Normal condition; nothing to worry about.

Unable to set clock to the correct time


Can get the PDF of the manual on line and pg 8 tells you how. Basically you hit the title button till time is displayed. (Title button is on the right of the screen) Then hold the title button down until time blinks (hour blinks) to the dial and turn the dial and the hour will adjust. Then press the mode button (the one just below the dial) Then turn the dial again to fix the minutes.
