Question about Televison & Video
Hello: Our big screen just started doing this today. Puts itself in standby mode, red light blinks 8 times, pauses, ad blinks 8 times again repeatedly. What is it trying to tell us??!!! Thanks! Joanne
You have a strt up problem. I found, in a similiar Sony Big Screen a couple of fixes. First thing to try is unplug the set from the wall for about 15 minutes and then plug it back in and retry the set. If this corrects the problem, I suggest you purchase a good ( Not a 5 dollar piece of junk) surge protector. ( One rated at 500-1500 joules. A good surge protector may prevent future processor lock ups. If this doesn't correct the problem, the problem lies in the circuit boards of the set. I found one problem in a Sony like you describe had a bad convergence chip and a burned resistor in the same board. Good Luck
