KV27S42 dead - 4 blinks

My KV27S42 is dead and red front led blinks 4 times when I plug it or switch ON then stop after 3 cycles (15 seconds). I replaced the IC541 with no success and I noticed that lots of voltages are missing (+13V, -13V, +135V and +200V on PCB A). I can hear the relay RY602 clicking and it supplies the 120VAC. I do not see any short between the +13V and -13V inputs of IC541 (pins 2 & 4) but when the multimeter is set to 20 Ohms, I can see the value increasing slowly, I think it is due to the capacitor between the inputs 2 & 4 of IC541, I did not check with IC541 floating. Resistances R561 & R562 are good with 0.47 Ohms.
I would like to jump the relay RY602 to achieve high voltages to see all functions working normally but it seems that all voltages are removed when the relay RY602 contacts close.
Any idea ?

    Good info I will try this evening, but I have some questions :

    what is the HOT ?

    I know that the 135V is not there on power up like the other voltages, how can I check IC1751 ?

  • Herve Pencalet Apr 03, 2008

    I unsoldered IC541 to check for any short and it is not shorted. I checked Q502 and it is shorted on the PCB, I will remove it to make sure it is really shorted, also I want to remove R504 and R505 because I do not read 1 Omh for R505. I have some doubts with T501 (Transformer) as they is no reading on Pin 5 because of Q502 and also on Pins 1 & 3 on T501, what would the values for Pins 1, 3 and 6 ?
    I have some very low voltages on FBT because of bad Q502 (?). I checked good IC501 (152V Pin 3 and 16.8V Pin 4). IC1751 no short on Pins 4 & 6.

  • Herve Pencalet Apr 04, 2008

    thanks for your reply,
    I finally unsoldered Q502 and it shows shorts between base and collector, base and emmitter, emmitter and collector, I am surprised that there is no sign of overheat on the PCB ! also the aera of T501 is clean. I think that I will remove T501 and check it appart.

  • Herve Pencalet Apr 09, 2008

    I replaced Q502, resoldered T501, checked voltages, my TV is now working fine.

    I noticed there was neither thermal compound on Q502 nor the heatsink. I put some.

    Thanks Bobbyj !

  • Herve Pencalet Apr 11, 2008

    I got the same symptoms you described with the vibration. If the circuitry is the same (do you have the shematics ?) go directly to Q502, very easy to test, if Q502 is not shored the power on the TV and check for different voltages (200V, 135V, +/-13V and 5V), they should be indicated on the drawings.

    Acquired a KV27S42 and it worked fine. Two hours later after transporting home, it turns on and then off again by itself. The led blinks 4 times. What could have caused the sudden problem?

I replaced Q502 on my Sony TV (KV27S42). TV started working after replacing Q502. I also used a good thermal compound. But few days later, it went to 2 flashing lights and now 4 flashing lights. Not sure what's causing repeat failure. Can anyone please help?

The +13 and -13 are generated by the flyback transformer as well as the 200 volts. the 135 is your B+ voltage and sould be there at start up. check the HOT and the Flyback. if there is no 135v check IC1751 on the C board sometimes if bad it loads down the 135v line. and can give a faulse vertical error.

    horizontal output transistor (HOT) on IC1751 check for short between pins 4 and 6. pin 4 is grnd and pin 6 is vcc.

    the pin lay out is 1=B in, 2=G in, 3 =R in, 4=gnd, 5= IK, 6=VCC, 7=R out, 8=G out, 9=B out

  • Robert Johnson Apr 03, 2008

    the transistor Q502 will show a short between Base and Emmitter but should not show a short between base and collector or emmiter to collector. if it shows short between either one of these then replace. also check for bad solder on T501 this can cause repeat failure of Q502.

  • Robert Johnson Apr 05, 2008

    T501 should be OK. 90% of the time Q501 fails on it's own. if you notice the transistor is on a large heatsink. the HOT is the most common failure in TVs because it is the hardest working transistor. they don't show heating normaly because of the heatsink. T501 sometimes have bad solder that cause Q502 to fail, just resolder it.

  • Robert Johnson Apr 05, 2008

    I ment Q502 not Q501

  • Robert Johnson Apr 11, 2008

    the vibration is from the deguasing coil as it demags the picture tube it vibrates the appiture grill inside the picture tube. this is normal and only happens at cold startup. all sony trinitron tubes do this and is not appart of the HOT (Q502) circuit.

    onys you gave jaime867 the fixya did you mean to do that?

I also have the exact same problem but mine is the 27V42....I think the circuity is almost the same. I tried replacing the IC601, IC1751, and IC541 as suggested in some of the posts but to no avail. I'll try to check the Q502 for short between B-C and E-C and possible replace it also. Interestingly, a month before my set died I get a loud vibration whenever I turn on the set. It vibrates the entire TV which last about <1sec but the TV will turn on. Not sure if this had anything to do with the failure.

If you already change IC1751, I would suggest to check IC601 on the power supply just to see if the voltage is getting to T603.
Try to disconnect and isolate lead # 2 from the FBT to be able to measure the voltages in the power supply circuitry.
Download the service manual if you do not have it yet.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Blinking red light 4 times & black screen every 3 seconds already have back off messing with tuning knobs on the back bottom right


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes).From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it.This will make repair easy.These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times.Count it carefully.If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Tv wont turn


The blinking red light at the the front of the television is the "Diagnostic STANDBY/TIMER LED".
This little red light will blink 2, 4, or 5 times and then stay off for three-seconds. And blink again for 2, 4, or 5 times. This cycle repeats. The most common diagnostic code is the 4-blink code.

When the red LED blinks 4-times, it means one of two possible causes:
1) +13V is not supplied on the A-board. Or, 2) IC502 is faulty.

It is best to take this television set to a repair facility and ask that the +13V power supply be repaired.
The copper tracks and integrated circuit pads are very thin and delicate on the KV-24FV12 circuit board, and will easily lift off of the circuit board, if the incorrect desoldering tool is used. Unless one has a good quality PACE vacuum desoldering unit, one should not attempt to repair the television.

KV27S42 problem


The 2 blinks is an indication of overcurrent. That translates into a short somwhere inside the set. since you can get sound but no picture, that suggests that the problem is in the high voltage section. The most common failure there is the Horizontal Output Transistor. This is a 3 legged part attached to a heatsink close to the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). That part should be marked C5438 or something similar. Post the marking here and I'll give you the complete part number.

Kv24fs120 dead set with two led blinks


Two-blinks of the "Diagnostic STANDBY/TIMER LED" indicates one of two things:

1) Horizontal Output (Q502) in shorted on the A-board.

or

2) IC702 is shorted (CB board)

Two-blinks of the diagnostic red LED is a " B+ Overcurrent" problem.
The red LED will blink 2-times, stay off for 3 seconds, then blink 2-times. The cycle repeats.

The circuit board is quite delicate. One should not attempt repairs (unless one has high quality vacuum desoldering equipment such as a PACE desoldering unit).

Blinks twice pause blinks 4 times


SYMPTOMS
Dead or Shutdown symptoms.
RESOLUTION
Dead symptom reported to be caused by the following:
1. Dead.
Found Q601 & Q602 shorted, R615 open, and IC600 on the A Board were the cause of the symptom.

2. Dead.
Found D614, Zener diode, on B+ line was shorted.

3. Set shutdown and the standby LED blinks 3 then 5 times.
Found 200v line was low. Disconnected CN706 on the C Board and found 200v now
present on CN706/pin 7.
Found: IC702 (C board) shorted the 200 volt line.
HQ Comments: C541 on the A Board could become defective if the 200v line is shorted since
the polarity on the capacitor will become reversed. R553 fuse resistor could also be opened
on the A Board.

4. Error code of 4 blinks .
Dead set press power button you hear the relay and you see red led flash 3 times and stops? Has no HV or other action. Tech removed the back as no 200 volt supply, did unplug CN706 and now has 200volts. Tech did remove the IC702 and same it comes up so needs this IC.

5. Dead. 5 blinks then 3 blinks. Found shorted Damper diode D504. Q502 has a built in damper, as well.

6. The TV does not turn On and the LED flashers 9 times.
Found one side of R610 open on the Base of Q690 on the A board.

7. Dead, 9 flashes, Q606
Would not start when cold, has stand by 5 but relay never energize.
No response from front panel or remote controls.
9 blinks is not in service manual.

Found Q606 (Zero Det.), on the A Board, had no soldered on the collector
of the transistor causing an intermittent connection.
Soldered the collector of Q606 and set returned to operation.
HQ Comments: Also refer to E30968554.

8. Dead. 5 blinks or 3 blinks
Found on the A Board D611 in the Power Supply open, and Hor. Output Q502 shorted.

9. Found Power Supply components D611 shorted causing Q600, Q601, and R615
to fail on the A Board.

10. No picture or sound. Standby flashes.
Found Q512 (Pin Out) shorted. on the A Board.





11. Dead. No sound or picture.
Found the FBT and Q502 were shorted, and R615 open on the A Board.

12. Dead
No power, Stand by light flashes 4 times.
Found T604 and IC601, replaced.
Found D611 on the A Board was the cause of the symptom.

13. Dead.
Found D534 shorted on the A Board.

14. Shutdown 4 Blinks.
Replacing R595, OCP Latch Q532 on the A Board, fixed the set.
PN 1-247-891-00, 330K 1/4 watt.

15. Unit shuts down after 15 mins.
Immediate shutdown - sometimes it give a 3 blink, sometimes nothing.
Found R595 (330K) was open located in the Q532 OCP Latch circuit.
R595 P/N 124789100 330k 1/4w

16. Won't power up. LED Blinks 4 times, B+ is very low
B+ is at 49V, +15/-15 only coming up to about 1 volt.
Wth Hor Out disconnected B+ only comes up to 50v.
Found D611 on the A Board was the cause of the symptom.

17. Intermittently does not turn on
Found a intermittent C633 on pin # 3 of IC600.
C663 P/N 113647911 Film cap .001uf 100v
