Question about Sony KV-32FV26 32" TV

Sony KV-32FV26 32" TV

TV is 7 years old and just started having color problems. At about the same time I noticed it was blinking a code: 5 blinks, over and over. My question is this: Is it worth having it fixed, especially with the cutover to HD just around the corner?

Lastly, I can no longer move or lift the set so will need to have it picked up which I am sure will add to the costs. FYI - I live in Columbus, OH.

Thanks in advance,

5 LED flashes is a CRT drive problem (IKR) CRT is poorly set G2 volts wrong or the CRT is exuasted. Either way you need an engineer and an estimate on the cost of repair.

Sony Wega Kv-36XBR250 screen blinking


I have seen this flashing before, this could be an indication that the picture tube is weak, what happens is that if the white balance is off there is a circuit called akb it monitors the kathode of each gun and if they are not in balance it will attempt to balance it out. if it can't the picture will begin to flash, sometimes in some models the power light will blink 5 times. On some models the power light will only flash if the tv gives up trying to compinsate for white balance and shuts off compeletely. If you see the tv shutting off with 5 blinks then you know for sure it is time for a new set.

My 32'' sony wega blinks 5 times


The 5 blinks means a problem in the set's AKB (auto kine-bias) circuit. Sony TV's monitor the operation of the picture tube. When some kind of trouble has been detected, the TV blanks the screen and flashes the 5 blink error code. This may be due to problems in the video circuit, a bad picture tube, or adjustments that have changed due to aging of parts. There isn't anything I can suggest you try on your own to fix it. Because several things may cause the problem, and the proper tools and service information needed to troubleshoot, you should refer this repair to a professional.

Sony Vega Service Codes


KV-32HS510 and KV-27HS420, seven times blink error code shows problem in Horizontal deflection circuit.

There are many possibilities like dry solder joints, weak capacitors, Horizontal transistor short or flyback transformer fried etc.

If you have little experience of TV repair and good solder skills and have necessary tools to test / check defective parts, then you can make it. you also need to have related service manual to see board location, schematics and part numbers.

TV Turns self off- 4 blinks on standby light


Yes, the blinks are error codes. I would not bother trying to figure out what they mean, I can tell you right now. Expensive repair. Average repair costs are 1/4 to 1/2 of the TV's current worth. Most likely a bad transistor. The average expected life span of a TV set is 3-5 years. After that, stuff starts wearing out fast. Time to move on.

Sony KV-32HV600 won't turn on.


If the blink repeats the same number of times (up to 6 or 7) between pauses, the number of blinks is a trouble code. Determine that number (count), then search this site and the web for your TV model and that code. Also look on the rear of the set for the chassis number, and search on that keyword.

TV will not come on.


The 7 blinks indicate a high voltage shutdown (high voltage exceeded 33,000V). This is usually caused by a defective regulator. Could you please post the exact model number (KVxxx) and I'll look up the part you will likely need?

Thanks,
Dan

Blinking what - how many times before it pauses and then blinks the next set?? Sonys have an error code of blinking to help isolate the problem... (count the number of times it blinks before pausing and let me know).

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.
