Sony Trinitron Wega with stand by flashing 7 times

I have a 5 year old Sony flat screen with the 36 inch screen.
Is it worth fixing, I spent a good amount of money, $1200 on this
model, and now I have read more and more stories about these Sony's
breaking down with llittle or no warning.
I am extremely disappointed to say the least in this product, when you spend this amount of money on anything you'd expect it to last more then 5 years.
Great timing also, the Super Bowl is just a week away and with a party planned, it seems highly unlikely that my television would be fixed in time.
I hope someone can help me, thanks, David

I personally do not think it would be worth getting it repaired.

Of course it really depends if you have another $1000 + for a new HD ready TV. It may be worth getting a repairman round for a quote but my advice would be to get a new 50" HD TV in time for the superbowl and be the envy of all your mates :D

Sorry to hear about your TV breaking, you can try taking it to a service shop to see if it can be repaired, generally a repair will cost less then a new tv, but may not be an option. Good Luck

Sony KV-32.FS120 wont turn on and stand by flashes 5 times. Is this any easy and inexpensive fix or not worth the time and money since tv is 6 years old ?


5 blinks indicates that your system has detected fault on Chroma board (Chroma board is the only board connected at the rear part of CRT). Often there are loose connection on IC terminals. Re-soldering of ic terminals can fix your problem.

My Sony trinitron tube Tv 36" seems to be going (its 10 years old


no ....the tube will end up after 20 yrs in 10 yr old sony...
it is worth if u fix it. randomly going black means...horizontal driver trans former is the problem..or any loose contact with the 110 volt supply to that transformer,,or any loose contact with line o/p transformer.. (horizontal driver transformer may be gone
then tv behaves like this) if any other parts gone tv wont come back.... there may be a loose contact call a service pro..

Sony 36 Wega XBR Flat Screen - sudden death.


This could be a scan amplifier failure, and there is a loss of high voltage to the CRT. Part of the power supply may have also failed. In these sets, if the CRT emission goes low in emission, or the CRT goes defective, the bias supply to the CRT will go in to protect.

An experienced TV service tech can troubleshoot the set and give you an estimate for service. Considering the age of the set, the cost of service may not be worth it.

Sony Trinitron XBR, Stand By Mode?


The 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem in the horizontal circuit. Since the TV recovered once, the problem is most likely to be a bad solder connection in that area. If you can solder, resolder any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. That may resolve the problem. If not, update this and we'll look elsewhere for defective parts.

Color variation and blinking red light on bottom of tv


The light flashing 5 times is normal at turn on as the set is monitoring current drain on the pictures tube cathodes. Any speakers near the set that have un-shielded magnets could possibly cause color issues.
