    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,

My kids were watching the tv when it shut off. When I got home I turned it on and green light flashed about 100 100 times now the red light flashes continuous. Tv still not coming on.


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

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....

Likely one of two things bad here. -- a bad color wheel in the light engine is not allowing the lamp to fire, or bad capacitors on the power supply is preventing the start up process from being completed. I have seen both, but more power supply issues. The PS is up front, behind the DM module and formatter module in the "box".

Techs HATE these sets!! The main reason is that ALL of the "stuff" is inside a bunch of "boxes" that shield things, but at the SAME time--they make repair a "#itch and ALSO overheat EVERYTHING!! Hopefully--you can find one willing to take a look at your set, if not under a service plan.

Some of these sets if you unplug them---The green power light will blink for about 70 seconds before it stops--this is normal as the receiver unit in this set is booting up. Wait for the light to stop blinking and then the set should turn on. Some of these sets develop a problem where the light never stops blinking--usually the receiver is now bad--very expensive to get fixed.

I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here.

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.
