Question about Sony KV-27S42 27" TV

1 Answer

Won't turn on - comes on and goes right back off

It's blinking four times and then pauses. I know it's telling me something, but what? Is it worth getting repaired? It's a heavy TV!

    No, the picture was fine. Worked one day, didn't the next. I can hear it click on and then it clicks right back off.

Is the picture good or is it dull and dark?
A dull aka weak picture tube will cause low beam current and blank the screen. Last set I had do this I turned up the screen control to make it brighter. Use caution and don't turn it up too high were you see vertical retrace lines in the picture.

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes


Hello,
the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.
