Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
Evening all, i hope you can help. I have just set up my brand new Sony KDL-46X3000. However, upon turning it on for the first time it has gone straight into diagnostic mode. The standby light is flashing with 2 blinks. Is it something I can fix or will I have to take it back?
did you ry to unplug from the wall for at least 3 min then plug back in if that does not work try pushing the tv button and reset at the same time on the remote for 1 min if this does not work please take it to a repair center

The 2 blinks usually mea an over current problem. Perhaps the most common cause of this is a shortde Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT). If you can solder, you should be able to repair this yourself. Realize that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged. Look for a 3-legged ransistor attached to a heatsink close to the flyback (part with large red wire coming out the top). The part will be marked C5438 or something similar. Post that marking here nad I'll confirm the entire part number.
Keep us posted.

SOURCE: STANDBY LIGH BLINKING 9 times...
I have a Sony SRS BBE Trinitron (WEGA). The last few days when I tried to turn it on using the remote the Red Light would go on but the TV did not turn on. I would have to press the power button again to turn it on.. I tought the remote battery was just low.
Today when I tried to turn it on nothing is happening and the Red Light is blinking 9 times ??? I tried to unplug it and try it again, still does the same thing ???
We need help...

Yes....this blinking code is a diagnostic fault code which is a good thing, you count the number of blinks and it tells you where the problem is.....you also can see it by pressing the buttons, DISPLAY,CHANNEL,5,volume - not + ,then power....In your case it blinks 5 times,its in the video out,you need a desoldering iron,solder,rosin core 60%tin and 40%lead...remove and replace these,Q761,Q705,Q732 on the C board also Q218,Q219,Q220 on the A board.hope this helps.......
