    Thanks for the reply.I have recently replaced the "D" board and have tried to make an adjustment,is this what you are referring to?. Thanks,Mark

  • mdfiore Apr 27, 2010

    I have tried to adjust from one end to the other of the lower transformer adjust and the code still remaims.Seems to be a problem with lets say the edges of letters from the video menu,I have restored the factory default setting and tried the edge feature still a little blurred.

  • mdfiore Apr 27, 2010

    I can measure volts ok.This is on the cx board but there wasn`t a problem before I changed the d board.I did however splice the transformer wires together that go to the cx board with good quality aircraft crimping tool.

  • mdfiore Apr 27, 2010

    The wires are color coded red and white and they never came off the cx board,I just spliced in the middle to change the d board.I see g2 for measuring the volts What ground can I use?

  • mdfiore Apr 27, 2010

    I connected the negative to what looks like a bonding on the crt which goes to the cx board and the positive to the white wire splice for g2 .Meter was set up for 1k vac ,switched tv on and no volts or "ol" for overload.

  • mdfiore Apr 27, 2010

    Well you are right,no volts and a flashing code present.Does this mean the transformer is bad?

  • mdfiore Apr 27, 2010

    Sorry,I understand now.I was able to turn tv on with channel button and there were no volts.I tried a second time but couldn`t get channel button to turn tv on.

  • mdfiore Apr 27, 2010

    Thanks for your patience and help

  • mdfiore Apr 28, 2010

    I would like to mention one more clue to you that I`m not sure I made clear.Letters and figures have that "halo" effect around them that I cannot adjust.Video adjustments,reset factory and pallette adjustments where effective in reducing the halo,but picture was too dak to watch.Transformer voltage was such a slight adjustment it didn`t have any effect,focus was somewhat effective.Again all with flash code 5

Hi,
Standby red light flashing 5 times in KV-40XBR800 shows problem of "white balance failure" and possible reasons for that problem are appended below:

1- Video OUT (IC9001-IC9003) is faulty on CH, CX Board
2- CRT (picture tube) drive (IC2801) is faulty on B Board.
3- G2 (screen volts) is improperly adjusted.

You should have schematics to check ICs and G2 volts adjustment procedure is also mentioned in service manual.

Hope this info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

    ================================================

    OK,
    If tv shuts down after flash of bright screen then reduce screen volts and if screen remains dark and tv shuts down then increase screen volts.
    Screen volt control knob is located on flyback transformer as above is for focus and lower is for screen volts.
    Thanks.

    factory default setting and tried the edge feature still a little

    ====================================================================

    That seems screen volts output is not proper, it should be 1000V DC and should be at least 600 to 800 DC volts at G2 pin of CRT.
    I'm not sure about your expertise. If you know how to check/ measure these volts then test it with voltmeter.

    I can measure volts ok.This is on the cx board but there wasn`t a
    problem before I changed the d board.I did however splice the
    transformer wires together that go to the cx board with good quality
    aircraft crimping tool.
    ================================================================

    Right, are you sure focus and screen volts wires are connected in right places?
    Focus wire is bit thicker than screen volts wire. Focus wire will go in CRT connector and screen wire will go to couple of resistors that further connect with G2 pin of CRT.

    board,I just spliced in the middle to change the d board.I see g2 for

    =================================================================

    OK, CRT ground is fine to measure G2 volts

    overload.
    =========================================================

    Prob of meter are in correct place, turn On tv by pressing channel button on tv front or its remote and test volts before tv gets Off again.
    In standby light flashing mode, no volts will appear at G2 point.



  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Apr 27, 2010

    Well you are right,no volts and a flashing code present.Does this mean
    the transformer is bad?
    ======================================================================

    No, I said to turn ON tv by pressing Channel buttons either on tv front or its remote.
    This will cancel protection mode and power will turn On so deflection circuit will work and you will get G2 volts for may be 2-3 seconds, enough time to get reading until tv turns Off / standby again.

    Sorry,I understand now.I was able to turn tv on with channel button and
    there were no volts.I tried a second time but couldn`t get channel
    button to turn tv on.
    ===============================================================

    OK, please make sure all connectors are plugged back in securely after D Board replacement.
    If every thing seems fine then D Board is suspected because its not working properly.
    Contact your part source for another D Board.

    =======================================================================

    G2 of picture tube is not getting volts (screen volts) and causing dark picture that ended up with white balance error of 5 blinks.
    Disconnect screen volt wire from picture tube circuit board that is coming from flyback transformer, get ready to take reading of screen volts in multimeter, turn on tv and see do you get volts on disconnected screen volt wire?
    If yes, that means flyback is working properly and providing screen volts, problem lies in picture tube circuit board.
    and if screen volts still missing then flyback transformer seems bad.

Blinking red light


Almost certainly it will be necessary to remove the set from any enclosure as access to its innards is gained by removing the rear housing completely.
If you feel around the back edge (hidden) of the bezel, I'm sure you will find several depressions; these are recesses for the screws that must be removed. 
Sorry about your Sony problems, their quality has greatly diminished in recent years.

Sony are probably the most protective manufacturer of this kind of information. All manufacturers carrying a DVD logo are obliged to say "no" but will normally intentionally leak this to boost sales, particularly in non-US areas.
