40'' Sony Bravia goes into standby with the light blinking 9 times

I don't know if its related to the upgrade taking place of digital TV today, but my Sony Bravia will not turn on and just goes into standby mode. The standby ligt then just blinks 9 times with about a 3 second pause and then starts again. According to the manual the self -diagnosis is activated. Any ideas on how to get my TV working again?

I finally managed to solve this problem by unplugging everything - scarts - HDD cables - power etc and left it for an hour. When I turned it back on again the problem had sorted itself out.

I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Bravia KDL-40Z5500. The TV simply turned off when I was watching, went into standby mode and tried to turn itself back on, and couldn't. The red light then started to flash exactly 9 times, and this process was repeated every 3 seconds or so. The TV simply would not turn back on, it seemed like it was trying to, but kept turning back off. So i searched online found this post, unpluged my TV from the wall waited ~1hr, pluged it back in, and after a few tries it now works again. Very strange. Overall, the problem had me puzzled. The TV now works fine but it might be faulty, its only 2 weeks old and im thinking of returning it to the dealer.

My Sony Bravia will play for less than a minute and then reverts to standy. Any suggestions?


Please unplug tv from wall socket for minute or so,, replug back in and turn it On.
If tv still goes to standby itself than its standby light would blink to show an error in somewhere inside tv circuits.
Let me know how many times standby red light blinking? There would be 3 seconds long pause in blinking so count pause to pause to determine problem section.
Thanks.

Standby LED blinks 4 times


Hi there,

4 blinks on a Sony Bravia indicates a backlight/inverter (aka ballast) problem. These ballasts are regrettably only available with an entire LCD panel. :( You may perchance be able to find a parts outfitter online that scraps out TVs and have a used ballast.

Typical backlight problem on an LCD shows up as the screen lighting up for a second or two and going back off. The 4 blinks just confirms your problem.
