When Sony TVs detect a problem, they shutdown and present a blink code. The blinking should be a repeated count. Please report that count here as that indicates the circuit in which the problem was detected.

Good day!!!

That problem is usually have 2 causes..Its either power supply board or mainboard..

Please take this steps on how to determine the problem:
  1. Open the back cover.
  2. Check the power supply output...It should have 5vdc for the main board..12vdc or 16vdc for the audio and 24vdc for the back-light inverter..
  3. If those 3 voltage supplies have encountered voltage drop...The problem could be on power supply board..
  4. If the power supply output is normal..The problem could be on the main board...
  5. If the problem is power supply you should check if the capacitors are bulged on the top and try to replaced it..If you can't do that you can purchased new power supply board..
  6. If the problem is on main board there is no D.I.Y repair on that so you need to buy a new main board that fits to your TV..
Hope thissolution will be helpful..

Thanks for using fixya...

My tv is blinking 7 times repeatedly. (The red standby light) What does this idicate and what can be tried before I take it to a repair store?

The blinking standby LED usually is an error code - indicating possible overcurrent protection mode. It can be either a short-circuit in the power supply, the HT rail, or the horizontal output transistor(s) could be shorted along with the flyback transformer. Or it could be a combination of all of the above.

Assuming this is a model with a CRT, I doubt it would be the 'bulb' - it would most likely be a circuit failure. Check the flyback transformer, the horizontal transistors and the tuning capacitors in their collector circuit - one may be shot.

Check the power supply and HT thoroughly for shorts and open circuit components - burn marks on the board, dry solder joints etc. Look for obvious things first.

Once you are satisfied that one or more parts have shorted, and you don't wish to replace them yourself, submit the TV to a repair store and insist on a FREE quote - this way, you can then decide if you want to pay that estimate to fix it or not.

Jmatejicka@When plugget in red light show but nothing else.Tried the power button,nothing,same whit using remote.

Modern tv's have power supplys that shut down on standby when faults appear , often its capacitors in power supply that fail, they usually go like batteries and leak. You can sometimes spot them ( with a trained eye) they swell up .... but not a repair for the novice.
capacitors are cheap, so i would not expect a large bill for parts

but time for engineer , uplift , bench repair , delivery . vat etc wow £ 100 or more
ps (had same fault with friends tv) I fixed it for £ 20.

My tv will not turn on

The blinking standby light is an indicator that an internal safety circuit has kicked in. The light shouldbe blinking a repeated pattern of count/pause/count etc. Can you please post the count here? That will indicate the problem circuit and allow us to provide you with the solution.

I have a Sony SRS BBE Trinitron (WEGA). The last few days when I tried to turn it on using the remote the Red Light would go on but the TV did not turn on. I would have to press the power button again to turn it on.. I tought the remote battery was just low.

Today when I tried to turn it on nothing is happening and the Red Light is blinking 9 times ??? I tried to unplug it and try it again, still does the same thing ???

We need help...

Standby Light Blinking

Standby light is a signal indicating a voltage trouble on your system . It could mean a compoment is defective or a power regulator needs replacement worse is a system IC replacing. you better bring your stuff to a Sony service center and do a check on your TV system.

Sony Trinitron Wega kv-36fs120 wont turn on, standby/timer LED flashes 9 times.

1. Place set on flat solid surface (garage floor or driveway).
2. Bang into it with SUV 3 or 4 times.
3. If set fails to respond, crush against garage wall or drive over it
