Question about Sony KP-53XBR300 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Flashing screen I have a Sony KP-53XBR300 53 in. rear projection television. The power light blinks with a pattern of 5 blinks, pause, 5 blinks...... The screen itself flashes on and off repeatedly, and as time goes on, longer and more frequently. We were able to increase the time between screen flashes by adjusting the picture, but we are about as low as it goes. Also, we've noticed that the screen flashing increases with the "intensity" of colors on the screen. For example, cartoons flash more rapidly than regular programining, and football games flash more rapidly when showing actions on the field vs the guys in the booth. Is it time to give it up?

% blinks for your model means a video output abnormality. which translates into IC7101, IC7201 or IC7301 on C board circuit is faulty or else its transistors Q510, Q516 or Q524 are faulty on the A board. I would check the transistors first for being faulty and if they check out then suspect one of the ICs

My 5 year old Sony wide screen projection TV (KP-51WS510) stopped working today. All I get now is a blinking red standby light. I accept that I will probably have to pay someone to fix this but can you...


The blinking should be in a repeated pattern of a count, pause,count... Can you post the count please? This is a diagnostic code that will indicate the circuit in which a problem was found. Armed with that info, we can give you an idea of the problem, its solution and the approximate cost.

Thanks,
Dan

5 blinks means AKB detected. Try turning down all 3 screen adjustments slightly.

count the flashes again carefully, as that model should only blink a maximum of 9 times, unless your getting two seperate codes. Try counting and trying to notice if it pauses a second before blinking again. then let me know what you discover.
