Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40W3000 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Sony KDL-40W3000 that will not power up; the red light blinks 13 times. You (like the Sony tech) have responded that the backlight inverter board may have failed and should be checked. Replacing CCFL lamps on KD-40V3000 solved what appears to have been the same problem. Could that solve my problem also? How do I get the instructions for such repairs?

It is most likely one or two of the CCFL lamps

which causes inverter board to fail.

Sony Bravia KDL-xbr4 Replaced TCON board All worked great for a week Had an issue w/ HDMI cable at the box fixed it and now tv comes and the goes off to 6 blinking red lights


6 red flashes- backlight issue, bad main board, or power board or inverter boards- check standby volts on power board. "backlight on" volts should be 3-5v from main logic board then 24v to inverter


Have this from a youtube link find BUT
Better is to look first also on bad leaking or bulged capacitors thats better to replace in the bad components to get a repair because active components died on bad capacitors but after a while because on the build-in protection circuit by faults like deformed or leaking capacitors and even several fuse resistors then after replace a complete board again after a while you will may be get the same kind of problems again, take If you find some or much bad capacitors replacements 10 volts dc higher . begin with control on the power supply first of all.

Sony KDL-46s2010 4 red light blinks


I would suspect one or more of the miniature flourescent backlight lamps. One way to confirm this would be to power up the set with a grayscale image at 40 to 60 IRE. If one or more lamps is failing to light, a slightly darker horizontal area in the grayscale will give it away. Unfortunately, Sony will not supply any of the backlight components apart from a new LCD panel. Sorry.

Standby light blinks 13 times


Hi,
13 blinks is backlight error.. can be 1 of 2 things, 1st bad inverter board (on left side panel looking from back) it has several plug ins to the panel as it supplies voltage to the backlights.2nd could be panel itself as backlights are built into it they can't be replaced. Inverter is probably around $200 +labor, panel= buy new tv... they are outrageously expensive. Good luck!

A 4 flash shutdown indicates a backlight problem. It can be acused by a bad backlight inverter board (the backlight power supply) or by a defective backlight in the panel. There are fuses on the backlight inverter board called "picofuses" which will need to be checked in order to isolate the problem to the board or the panel. If the fuses are good, you have to replace the panel (very expensive!). If the fuses are opne, most likely the back light inverter board has failed.
