SOURCE: no picture blinking stand by light

I hve worked on a number of these units , your description is typical of a shorted blue picture tube. The protection circuits in the tv detect that there is a problem thus shutting the unit down to prevent further damage. Sony had a bad run of picture tubes in this series. The replacement cost of the tube is about $250 plus labor. My estimate would be for the repair about $400-500 depending on where you live and how honest your local technican is. I will caution you however, that you could replace this tube and the red or green could go. These would not be covered by the technicians warranty. When these sets are working, they have a superb picture and it is easy to get lured into fixing them. Scrivitron

Sony 53" rear projection tv picture comes on scrambled and small with the stand by light blinking then the lamps go out. Whenever the channel is changed stand by light blinks again lamps come on for a few...


There are 2 types of Sony rear projection TVs, one that has 3 picture tubes inside and other has one lamp to produce light.
Model number is important to identify what TV do you have so let me know exact model number written at back of TV to find problem reason and suggest its solution.
Thanks.

KV32XBR450 no picture and blinking stand By light


Typically, 4 blinks mean "Vertical Deflection Stopped." Chances are that you have a problem on the D board.

THE POWER STAND BY LIGHT IS FLASHING RED 4 TIMES


Anything less than 5 blinks is major trouble. More likely vertical IC and circuit failure. Picture has been muted or turned off by TV. If Stand By light was blinking 5 times the Stand By might have came out self-diagnosis function or mode.
Contact Sony Service Tech for service adjustment to fix problem.
