    Would it be worthwhile to buy another used one and piece them together? Used ones are going for $100-500, or, is this such a common problem that most Sonys this age (7 yrs) are prone to this problem.

    Can't afford new 61", this one was $3000. Can it be repaired for <$1000 and get another 5-7 yrs out of it?

Five blinks is a video abnormality detection and I am all too familiar with this repair... One or more of the crt's in this unit has a bad set or failing guns in it... You can have a local tech bring out a crt tester and rejuvenate the tube for a temporary stay but it will eventually fail for good and in a short period of time it will be one or the other - - VERY expensive to repair or off to the dump...

    My belief is that is why you'll find ones so cheap... I don't waste my time here in the shop to put used parts in a customer's unit. Most often it will just lead to further grief and then you have twice as much to throw away.

    Holidays are quickly approaching get out the Consumer Reports and strart researching a new investment. If that isn't possible call a few shops and find out what they have in used units and what guarantee they offer...

    Good Luck!

I have a Sony KF 50 WE 610 projection screen TV. It has worked perfectly since I bought it six or seven years ago. This morning I turned it on and the sound came on for a second, but then the sound went...

Five consicutive blinks at a time and the stops and again blinks five; is its self diagonosis procedure. All modern Sony sets has this function included in its circuits. If the system control IC inside it detect any fatal fault inside its circuits system, it will give a signal to its power control unit to shut it down its high voltage outputs to protect the other components from further damage. In your set; as Sony describes; I quotes:-
  • 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.
  • Actually the components marked in numberes will not be the same as in your TV. But the fault will it be.
    If you have enough knoledge in electronics and have a concept of soldering and have a good quality multimeter; youreself can do this work by home. OK
