Sony Projection Televisions - HOW TO FIX TV Red Blinking light of times between 3-second intervals and turn off

I have a Sony Bravia. Smart Television that would not turn on once in standby mode. The Red light would blink twice. I unplugged the television and reconnected it using a surge protector power supply strip. This solved my issue. From now on I'll be sure to turn the television off instead of allowing it to turn itself off.

TV turns red,shuts off, stand-by light blinking 8Times

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.

If standby/ power red light is blinking then please count its blinking and post here. It is an error code that has info about problem in specific section of tv.
You will see 3 seconds long pause between blinks so count pause to pause.

Sony Vega Service Codes

KV-32HS510 and KV-27HS420, seven times blink error code shows problem in Horizontal deflection circuit.

There are many possibilities like dry solder joints, weak capacitors, Horizontal transistor short or flyback transformer fried etc.

If you have little experience of TV repair and good solder skills and have necessary tools to test / check defective parts, then you can make it. you also need to have related service manual to see board location, schematics and part numbers.
