I am thoroughly confused now

I had no picture issues at all..it just wouldnt turn on yesterday and gave me the 3 blinks..but I never had an issue with picture quality..so you still think it would be the convergence chips?

No picture comes up but tv powers up and the stand-by light blinks for about 3 to5 seconds, i also hear sound when i turn it on and change channels


If in shutdown the power light should continue to blink a specific number of blinks which is a error code.

This set is prone to bad picture tubes (has 3) so depending on code may be a fatal issue----sets will before flash bright red, green, or blue when this happens and shut off.

I have a sony KP-65WS500 Ztv turns on but screen is blue with lines. I can hear sound but cant get tv on.the red light blinks five times.. Does anyone know what is the problem?


Can you confirm the actual model number of this set? Some had issues with the picture tubes being bad but depending on model number there may be a fairly easy way to adjust around this to correct the issue.

Red standby light came on and no picture sound is ok .Next. time tv came on it played approx one hour everthing ok. then the picture gradually faded away . Red standby light came on again. Still no...


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.

I just replaced the bulb in my sony grand wega kf50we610 yesterday. today my tv turns on for less than a minute and shuts down. not sure how many lights blink? please help what can I do?


Look for the blink code when it shuts down--it will point you in the direction of what the problem is--for example if it blinks a sequence of 3 blinks and a pause and 3 blinks etc---it is an easy repair you can do and the parts cost is under 20 dollars--what is wrong will be indicated in a general way by the blink code--it is a error code.

Same problem with the 3 blinks


Thats an expensive price for 20 minutes worth of repair and 20 dollars in parts. For that price I would insist that he use origional SANYO ICs as sanyo designed the STK series Chip and even though other brands have the stk number they are cheap imitations. origional sanyo parts will come packaged with the sanyo UPC code on the package. Otherwise you will probaly end up with 5.99 cheap versions and they will only last a short period of time

Tv turns itself off after a few moments of clear viewing


HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and
3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues


good luck
