Trouble code: Standby LED blinks 9 times

I have a sony wide screen projection tv model # KP51WS520. After recently rearranging our living room; we moved the tv to the oppisite side of the room, the tv doeen't come on. Instead the standby LED just continueously blinks 9 times then pauses for about 3 seconds and then another 9 blinks. If you continue to try to get it to come on it eventually will turn on and everything works just fine. Somtimes it takes 5or more minutes of pressing the remote to get it to come on.

Re: Trouble code: Standby LED blinks 9 times

Try pushing the buttons on the remote and let me know what comes up on the screen if anything.
Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up
a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred.
Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC.
We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described
above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink

Sony 3lcd wega engine tv screen turns black, power/standby button blinks 45 times, then screen goes back on. This repeats over and over again. Do you know what's wrong with my tv? Thanks.

First check your tv if it has standby power. if it has standby power please do count the number of blinks of red led. (it is on a sequence) so that we can walk through the steps and procedure to get rid of the trouble. if theres no stanby power, its probably the power supply. please do check busted fuse and replace with same ratings.

Video output error which is indicating that one of the CRT drive boards has an issue such as IC9101 on the CR (red Board) or C9201 on CG ( green) and IC9301 on the CB (blue )
It could also be an issue with the video out IC on the A board ( IC452 ) But the CRT drive boards are more likely. You can get replacement boards and parts for that model at

  • 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 A2 slightly.

TV won't turn on

There's a small diode on the power supply board that causes this. Its identifiable by its purple stripe. You will need the correct type of diode to fix this properly. The diode supplies the standby voltage to the system control circuit, so when it fails, the TV will never come on.

count the flashes again carefully, as that model should only blink a maximum of 9 times, unless your getting two seperate codes. Try counting and trying to notice if it pauses a second before blinking again. then let me know what you discover.
