Question about Sony KP-53HS30 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Surge Protection I believe

It blinks 6 times with a pause, and it sounds like some switches on the power supply are switching off, but then immediately turn off again.

    *switching on, then immediately turning off again

    I am having the same problem with my Sony KP53HS30. I have no picture and sound and see the 6 blinks. Is this an easy fix? Where do I find a repair manual. travisllee@yahoo.com



    Thanks

Your set is experienceing low B over current or over voltage tripping the protective shutdown. Indicated by 6 blinks. You will need to check the +5 line on the A and B boards for being over loaded or shorted. If you would like the service manual for this set and be able to recieve free tech support with manual purchase. let me know and I will post a link

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Power surge from storm. Power light turns on for 2-3 seconds and goes off. Previously had a power supply replaced 3 yrs ago. tv is approx 12-15 yrs old.


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device" and "menu"buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

before you rate this information or if you have questions let me know what you find.

The Power light blinks 6 times faster and 1 time slower and OFF.


6 short blinks followed by a pause of 3 seconds,
1 long blink of 3 seconds to finish the sequence.

The L.E.D. code indicates a fault with your 5v d.c. power circuit. The circuit board will have to be troubleshooted to locate exactly what component has failed.

Do you have the service manual?

I believe my tv was involved in a power surge. red/green blinks


Hello:
U just may of blown fuses on the power supply of the television if you are sure it was a surge. If u can open the unit check all fuses on the power supply for open coniditions. If the future is a good Ideal to use a surge proctector as this will protect your equipment. Make sure power is off and remove AC power to check fuses. Sometimes just removing AC power for a least 2mins will reset the unit.

Mitsubishi non powerup problem


If it is a steady blink then it will be something with the microprocessor not resetting. That set does give fault codes by blinking in a pattern, like two blinks then a pause then three blinks.
It can be a little tricky to troubleshoot, I think that set has a micro, two eproms and another IC that they called a watchdog which has a lot to do with the micro and preventing it from locking up. It may also be a power supply problem not supplying proper power to the micro. I'd try a few more unplugs and maybe plug direct to outlet and bypass surge protector. If it won't reset you'll need someone familiar with that set to service it for you.

Sony KP-51WS500 will not turn on


I believe the problem is either in the G board ( power supply) or the D Board ( high voltage) as the 3 blinks indicate the G board, and 7 indicates the D board and 6 indicates the +5 line a and b boards. So with that many codes its most likely the G board (power supply) You can get a new replacement G board at the following link which comes with free tech support to help you plug the baord in which is very easy. Its listed under the Sony parts category and its the A-1316-566-A sony G board, Here is the link.

Power LED blinks red


it is a bad fan. it also could be a power supply. Quite often the real problem is dirt clogging up the fan(s) to the point that they need to be replaced. Operation of the set in a dirty environment is not a good idea
