Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"

Sony KDL-52W4100 standby light blinks 13 times after being switched on. The lower part of the screen briefly lights up then the unit standby light starts flashing


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/

SYMPTOM: Customer may report that intermittently after AC OFF/ ON (or Deep Standby/ ON), TV will shut down with LED blinking 5 times. If set is placed in Standby, then On, symptom will re occur. If AC is removed, set will work normally when AC restored
CAUSE: Timing mismatch of I2C communication causes interrupt signal inside TV. This causes TV to shut down with error 'Standby led flashes 5 times'

SOLUTION: This is a user correctable issue -
Where possible, please refer customer to Sony Website -(or ) and search for relevant model to download correct update. If the unit is in Workshop, please perform update as per Instructions.

My KDL sony tv turns on briefly(displays menu) then shuts down, and standby led flashes 6 times then pauses then continues, does not respond to the on/off button or the remote


6 times blinking standby light indicates problem with Audio Section in tv
Check AU 15V output of G2 (power supply) board then check AU board as it has sound processor and sound output ICs.
If you are not familiar with electronics stuff repair then call local tv repairman to repair it for you.
Thanks.

Standby LED blinks 4 times


Hi there,

4 blinks on a Sony Bravia indicates a backlight/inverter (aka ballast) problem. These ballasts are regrettably only available with an entire LCD panel. :( You may perchance be able to find a parts outfitter online that scraps out TVs and have a used ballast.

Typical backlight problem on an LCD shows up as the screen lighting up for a second or two and going back off. The 4 blinks just confirms your problem.

Sony Bravia KDL-40V3000 standby light blinking


I just worked on this last week 13 blinks means there is a problem with the backlights.So it can be 1 of 2 things bad inverter board( which costs less than $200) or the panel in which case you can thow the TV away as it will probably cost as much for a new TV.Unfortunately the set I worked on ended up being panel. If you try the inverter board just take your time removing it its plugged in rather tight I gently tapped it out with a screwdriver to get it started.

Sony KDL-40V3000 standby blinks 13 times.


A service technician arrived at my home this morning and infromed me that 13 blinks indicates a bad LCD panel. His quote to repair it was approximately $500 more than the TV initially cost. I contacted Sony support directly, and they have agreed to replace the TV, since it is less than 30 days out of warranty. The KDL40V3000 has apparently been dicontinued so they are replacing with a KDL40V4100(factory reconditioned). I know this won't necessarily help others with the same problem, but if your warranty ended recently enough they will probably work with you to mitigate the expense.
