Re: blinks twice pause blinks 4 times

Dead or Shutdown symptoms.
Dead symptom reported to be caused by the following:
1. Dead.
Found Q601 & Q602 shorted, R615 open, and IC600 on the A Board were the cause of the symptom.

2. Dead.
Found D614, Zener diode, on B+ line was shorted.

3. Set shutdown and the standby LED blinks 3 then 5 times.
Found 200v line was low. Disconnected CN706 on the C Board and found 200v now
present on CN706/pin 7.
Found: IC702 (C board) shorted the 200 volt line.
HQ Comments: C541 on the A Board could become defective if the 200v line is shorted since
the polarity on the capacitor will become reversed. R553 fuse resistor could also be opened
on the A Board.

4. Error code of 4 blinks .
Dead set press power button you hear the relay and you see red led flash 3 times and stops? Has no HV or other action. Tech removed the back as no 200 volt supply, did unplug CN706 and now has 200volts. Tech did remove the IC702 and same it comes up so needs this IC.

Would not start when cold, has stand by 5 but relay never energize.
No response from front panel or remote controls.
9 blinks is not in service manual.

Found Q606 (Zero Det.), on the A Board, had no soldered on the collector
of the transistor causing an intermittent connection.
Soldered the collector of Q606 and set returned to operation.
HQ Comments: Also refer to E30968554.

8. Dead. 5 blinks or 3 blinks
Found on the A Board D611 in the Power Supply open, and Hor. Output Q502 shorted.

9. Found Power Supply components D611 shorted causing Q600, Q601, and R615
to fail on the A Board.

10. No picture or sound. Standby flashes.
Found Q512 (Pin Out) shorted. on the A Board.

11. Dead. No sound or picture.

No power, Stand by light flashes 4 times.
Found T604 and IC601, replaced.
Found D611 on the A Board was the cause of the symptom.

13. Dead.
Found D534 shorted on the A Board.

14. Shutdown 4 Blinks.
Replacing R595, OCP Latch Q532 on the A Board, fixed the set.
PN 1-247-891-00, 330K 1/4 watt.

Immediate shutdown - sometimes it give a 3 blink, sometimes nothing.
Found R595 (330K) was open located in the Q532 OCP Latch circuit.
R595 P/N 124789100 330k 1/4w

16. Won't power up. LED Blinks 4 times, B+ is very low
B+ is at 49V, +15/-15 only coming up to about 1 volt.
Wth Hor Out disconnected B+ only comes up to 50v.
Found D611 on the A Board was the cause of the symptom.

Sony trinitron

Need a little information here...

1. The TV remains on, yet there is no picture and no sound? Or does the TV turn off altogether?
2. Are the blinks constant and continuous? Meaning, does it blink two times, pause, blink two times and go on and on like that?
3. Can you turn the TV on? Or can you not get it to turn on?

Answer those questions and I can give you some more information or send you to the place where you can get it.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA Won't Turn On

The key here is the count of the blinks. I'm assuming that the model number is KV-36FS120. Please post the blink count. It should be a count-pause-count...
