    this is because the timer is switched on... if the fuse was blown then there wudnt be any supply to tv circuit and u wudnt find any light blinking... so i can say that the timer is running.. and please remove the timer...

    your problem has already been mentioned once in fixya.

    see this link.

    the solution given was
    broken surface mount resistor of main power supply

    and that represents a solved problem.

    and hence your problem is same as the problem mentioned and so u also go by the same solution given.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 09, 2008

    also have a look at this solution and problem.

    if not same as yours it reads similar one.

    don't consider the model numbers too strictly.

    sony has standard flashing codes for al its sets.

    so u need not much worry about the model numbers.

    just look at the problem and its solution.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 09, 2008

    dont forget to accept my solution if u go by it.

    thank you

    have a great day

    good luck
    bye

    Another thing can you please tell me the no. of flashes you can see?

  • Priya darshan Jun 09, 2008

    can you please tell me the no. of flashes you can see?If you tell me the no. of flashes then i can tell you what exactly the problem is and a solution for it.

  • Priya darshan Jun 11, 2008

    I have mentioned the list of no. of flashes and their solution:


    ONE Blink--- not used for the self-diagnosis

    TWO Blinks---B+ over current protection (OCP) , unit goes to the standby

    mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of

    any of the circuits.

    THREE Blinks---B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby

    mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power

    supply circuit, check T603 and R672.

    FOUR Blinks---No Vert. Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single

    horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505

    FIVE Blinks---AKB circuit (AKB), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about

    30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with

    the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C

    board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. Also unit be in IK blanking,

    try turning up screen slightly.

    SIX Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking selfdiagnosis

    function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.

    SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k

    and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply

    regulation and horizontal circuits.

    EIGHT Blinks---Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and

    blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401 and 402.

    Intermittent problems ?? This is a great feature. You can also bring up

    these fault codes ON-SCREEN to see a list of the problem numbers with the

    abbreviation of the problem and the number of times this problem has

    occurred. This is slightly different than entering the service mode. To see the

    diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:

    Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up

    a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred.

    Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC.

    We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described

    above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink

    codes.

    So, now that you know about these self-diagnostics, how do you use them?

    Say that you have a set with a black screen. You see that the LED is blinking

    4 times....This would tell you that you have no vertical and that is why the

    video is muted. If it was blinking 6 times, you would know that you have a

    horizontal fault.

    It's not a sure cure, but it's a little better than a poke in the eye with a sharp

    stick.

    IMPORTANT: after you repair the unit, PLEASE clear the values on this
    diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault
    is 0 corrected, so if you don't clear them, you'll be seeing "old"
    fault codes the

    next time you enter this screen. Clearing is done by going into the
    service mode ( display, channel, 5, volume plus, then power ) then
    press 8 and Enter, which of course returns

    everything to the factory preset condition.

    is it possible to turn tv on manually? if it is, problem is with remote
    control. if it isn't, i would bet its a problem with power supply. Get
    out your DMM and measure the voltages in the
    power supply. if it is too high, tv will not turn on.
    I strongly recommend you to get it repaired.

I have a sony tv model kv-27v42 i have sound but no pictture and stand by light blinks what is the problem


How many times do this standby light blinks at a time of switch on? These blinks are fault indications. From the number of these blinks, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. Count it. If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes to Sony TVs, check this link.

My sony KV-32V40 has worked well for a number of years. All of a sudden, there's no picture, but the audio is perfect. The timer/standby light flashes a number of times at startup, but the picture never...


I would expect, based on your description, that it is likely a bad solder connection on the main board. The internal connections can develop small cracks over time and eventually become intermittent. There are other possibilities, but this is a likely one. Whatever the source of the trouble it would need to be diagnosed by a technician. I would find a technician or shop that can give you an estimate and you can base your repair decision on that.

Sony Trinitron Color TV KV-35V65 - No Picture, red light stand/by timer flashing


A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.

Thanks,

No picture, no sound, stand by timer light flashing


Need a little information here...

1. The TV remains on, yet there is no picture and no sound? Or does the TV turn off altogether?
2. How many blinks does the standby light give? Are they continuous? Is it the same each time, or random?
3. Did anything else happen before this, or did it just happen one day?

Answer that and I'll try to help with what I know.

Sony KV-27S42 not on but timer flashes


The blinking light means almost 100% that the high voltage circuit has failed. Probably need a new horizontal output transistor and flyback. Perhaps an associated resistor or diode. If you have the expertise go for it, otherwise take it to a professional. In any case be extremely careful and safe. Good luck.
