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.

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.

Sony wega kdf42we655 power led blinking red

If lamp light is on at tv front then replace lamp as existing lamp sounds dead/ broken.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual of tv.
And if lamp light is not on but standby light is blinking then let me know how many times it is blinking to find out problem cause as standby light blinking is an error code.

No picture, just a red blinking light

First make sure to hit the menu button on the TV's remote and if nothing is there then friend while the set is on turn a bright flashlight on and shine at angle into the set push the TV menu button if you can see a image then your back light is not working.
Cost backlights around 150.00 and power supplies around 100.00. Well this should help you friend.

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 keeps blinking. tv wont turn on

If the TV goes off completely, then is usually a faulty power board.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Blinking power light

This set has a power supply and signal PCB. Since the indicator light is blinking, I would consider the problem to be a missing voltage from the power supply. Unplugging the set for a couple minutes may solve the problem. If not the set may still be under warranty. Contact LG (800) 243-0000 for a servicer in your area. Hope this helps.
