Power Button Blinks 3 times and then nothing happens
On of the parts on the blue light board had a shock due to the screen leaking, i manage to find a tech gut who can seal the tube, but the problem now is that he is telling me that i have to replace the chip board (where the DVI Chip is and where you connect the signal cables). Does this make sense?, the sympthom is that the power light blinks 3 times and nothing hapens, he says the flyback transformer is working cus he can check the pulse on the chip and it gets ok, but the chip is not sending any pulse outside. Is this a flyback transformer problem? Or is he lying so i can buy the board?

Re: Power Button Blinks 3 times and then nothing happens
If the coolant spilled on a circuit board, there are changes that the board might be damage as this liquid is highly corrosive and also can conducts electricity while on the board.

This unit is going into protection mode because it has detected a problem inside. Can you count the number of blinks please. That should be a repeating count. This will help to isolate the problem circuit.
Usually when the crt leaks onto the chassis it can be cleaned and the affected components only have to be replaced I am not sure what "chip" you are refering too, but most ICs can be purchased as a replacement part. usually the entire board wont need replacing unless the traces are destroyed or replacement parts are unavailable.
Steve, I have the exact same problem with my tv. same model. If you happen to find a solution, could you please forward it to me. I will be very appreciative. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I'll do the same for you if I find a solution.
A common problem for this error code is D6301 on the G board leaking under a load. D6301 is a Pt# 10erb20 -tbs.. This is neither an expensive part or that difficult for a quality shop. Kind of a no-brainer repair... But getting at the G board might be difficult if you don't have the technical experience. Personally I'd recommend taking to a shop if you haven't repaired many of these Sonys before..

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source.
