Hi,

The only solution to fix this problem is to call a tech.

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

1)Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.
2)The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution as fixya..

    .There are some of the fuses which has to be replaced but you may also have problem with convergence IC's.

Not knowing your exact model, the following information may be a little off but will work all the same

I think you may have a few problems here. If you are comfortable with soldering, check the following parts first:
R7060 and R7066. These are .27 ohm resistors that feed the convergence ICs. They may be open. If they are open, the convergence ICs are probably bad and need to be replaced. These are STK390-110. These should be readily available on-line for about $20-$25 each.

Let me know if you need any further help and remember that working on a tv can be dangerous and can result in a large electrical shock.

    The above is exactly the information you need, it is for panasonic, the red light is an indicator that there is a problem and blinking three times means that most likely the ICs need to be replaced and if that doesn't help, then it would be the board, but most likely the ICs. Are you experienced with opening a tv at all and know what to look for? I can get you pictures or further information on the matter if you wish. Thank you

    Please keep me updated

    You do not need to call a tech to fix this problem, you just need to know how to handle electrical devices and how to solder new ICs onto the board. Let me know if you have any questions

Sony KV32FS120 Trinitron TV No picture or sound when power button on remote is turned off. Red light at front of TV blinks nine times per cycle.


Hello,

Once your television blinks about 9 times then it means there is a problem somewhere most likely the lamp of the television. Another source of this problem is also a bad capacitor from either the main panel or the power panel.

If your remote turns off actually it is because there is nothing to operate on the television, so once your television starts the blinking light, the remote will not be able to operate the television, once you unplug the television and plug it back then press the power button, the remote will do the same.

Until the television is fixed is when the remote will work normally.

Take care and good luck

Hi gibbo, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. the three blinks is a code that some Sony has to trouble-shoot certain issues with the unit. The three blinks indicate that you have a problem in the power supply circuit. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Holidays........John

If the front power light is blinking three times then your TV has a problem with the convergence. You can get the correct replacement parts and full step by step photo instructions from www.TvRepairKits.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.

Blinking power button


Blinking power light is usually due to bad capacitors on the power supply. See the tip for RCA atc336 under my profile that can apply to your set as well.
