That is almost always an indication of main-board failure on these Bravia LCD's. Unfortunately this is a very difficult repair, and unless you are an electrician I would not recommend attempting it. You will need to contact a local TV repair person in your area. If you think it may still be under warranty please contact the manufacturer to file an RMA. If you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.

Let me know if you want me to try and track down the part for you, but please make sure you think you are capable of doing the repair.

Thanks
Tim

    You are a tv repair shop? Well it's the video board for the TV, it needs to be replaced.


    Thanks

    I have conferred with them and they are correct, they knew a few things I didn't. Go with the inverter for sure.

    Thanks

SOURCE: KDL-40S2000 starts & pic comes

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa.
9 blinks error indicates a backlight and/or an inverter board issue with this TV. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. The issue can be a bad inverter board and/or the inverter board is not getting 20vdc from the power supply maybe due to the connector that has gone bad/loose. All this is only recommended to be done by someone who has electrical expertise and knows about the internal circuitry of the unit. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Rylee

No sound no picture, the stand by light blinks four times


If you have the above model, then the four blinks indicate a backlight failure. The back light inverter board might be defective or the voltage from the power supply (+24v) is low or missing.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 40 inch


We have the same problem.. Checked the Sony site after a few clicks got to: http://www.iq.sony.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=966,E=0000000000761838071,K=1708,Sxi=1,Case=obj(460991),VARSET_OBJ=460991,VARSET_TSRC=results,UseTemplate=case.tem,VARSET_TOP=TRUE
We followed the 'simple' troubleshooting tips then called the service center. As mentioned above 4 blinks indicates a bad panel. The repairman that visited said that he is ordering a new power supply (much cheaper than the back panel) for their first try. I will post again when my set is back on.
