Sony KDL-46XBR4 46 in. LCD flashing light. Light flashes red 8 times pauses


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/. If the blinks continues, and non-stop, the fault should be with its main system control IC, and with the memory IC. Try this link too.

After replacing all capacitors on the power supply board,Tv still doesn't come on


if only a blinking indicator at the tv panel that was mean has an error detected by the main board. if no any power indicator then you have been already replaced bulging capacitors but still won't turn on. at this time you will need to have voltage checking using a digital tester, if their is an output voltages at the power supply board.

Have a red blinking light on tv tv does not turn on


Normally one red blinking power indicator means your television needs a main board and or a power supply. The television would need to be evaluated and if you need a power supply only perhaps the service provider can rebuild it for less than $200. If the television needs a main board perhaps Sharp will work with you if you have an estimate. If you really have an aquos television 46 inches or greater you can get assistance at 877-332-7867

Won't turn on


Flashing or blinkings diagnostic code meaning;

Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board

Bad solder or loose, crack ,cold solder connections joint,you must reworks or resolder joint of the "D" board so it will works normal again.

Hopes it may help you;
