    I had exactly the same thing happen, ours however flashes 8 times, not 6 - any significance to that? I have a repairman coming out tomorrow, and he says it could be related to the "b board"? I'm getting no return calls from Sony Service, and that's why I called my own source. He also feels that it might be something that isn't supported any longer since it doesn't have a digital tuner built in - it's still considered an "analog" type TV.

    My Sony KP-51ws510 did the same thing. I unplugged it for longer than 1 minute. I plugged it back in and when I pushed the power button, it clicked and then the timer/standby light flases 6 times but there is no picture and no sound.



    Since this appears to be a common problem, has anyone come up with a fix for it?



    Thank you,

3 flashes of the led light at the front panel is means that the unit is in booting process. The symptoms you've mentioned is caused by faulty electrolytic capacitor in the power supply section.
Look for faulty capacitor with bulged, dome at the top and then replaced it with same ratings. If you have a capacitor checker, it will make you more easy to identify the faulty capacitor without a physical indication of fault.

Suddenly turned off without warning Sony KDS-50A2000


Hello,

All you need is to open the back cover of the television and check on for dry soldering at the power stage of the printed circuit board, also check for bulged capacitors, if found replace with same rating of voltages , but if otherwise Ur power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics’ and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get ur tv power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

Hope this helout, Good luck....

Sony projection tv HELP!!


Hi,

Initially, let us try a simple one; flick/snap with your finger nails any and all of the buttons on the front control panel of the TV unit. The ides is to unstuck any of the buttons. They maybe in a pressed position. Incidentally, any sudden change in the weather/temperature? Any rain lately? Condensation, dampness, humidity maybe playing with the rubber pads of the controls or with the electronics inside.

Alternately, you can try the hard reset; unplug from the mains for an extended period of time, say an hour or more.

Should none be corrective, pls post back the exact model number.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,
