Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes


Hello,
the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

Picture red can not fix


Step 1:

The problem you have is the grayscale tracking needs to be reset.
First, This looks like a philips tv. In order to set the grayscale tracking remove the back of the set. There should be rectangular shaped box that is marked screen and focus on it with 6 knobs coming out of it.

Step 2:

NOTE: DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE SET-YOU WITH BE SHOCKED! WITH THE TV TURNED ON, WITH THE REMOTE, TURN DOWN THE COLOR TO ZERO. ON THE CONTROLS I PREVIOUSLY MMENTIONED, THERE ARE RED,GREEN AND BLUE ADJUSTMENT POTS.

Step 3:

TRY TURNING DOWN THE RED UNTIL YOU SEE A NORMAL GRAY PICTURE. YOU MAY HAVE TO ADD MORE GREEN OR BLUE AS NEEDED. IF THIS DOESNT LOOK RIGHT ,TURN ALL 3 R.G ANDB ALL THE WAY DOWN, THEN ADJUST THEM UNTIL THE COLOR IS JUST APPEARING ON THE SCREEN, MAKE THE PICTURE AS GRAY AS POSSIBLE. iF THIS DOESNT WORK,YOU WILL NEED A SERVICE PERSON TO REPAIR YOUR TV.

Tv won't come one and blinks red 7 times then stops.


When the bottom half of the picture goes out this usually indicates a failure of the lower Y driver module. When this module fails it will often take out the Y sustain module and when that happens the set goes into over current shut down. Both boards will have to be replaced. All of this is assuming you have a Plasma set and not a LCD flat panel.

Red,green and blue lines across screen


I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.

Red lines on right hand side of the screen now no picture on right hand side!


I'm not an expert, but I have determined that the vertical bars that are often red, sometimes blue ... and sometimes both ... are related to a bad control board. I've also read that a common fix is to buy a repair kit with includes the ysus, zsus and control boards ... all replaced together. My experience was that after a month or two with the 1.5" wide stripes, that you eventually loose the entire picture and have sound only. MIne comes back, but won't stay working for very long and the stripes are always there (buy used to fade and flicker sometimes). I'm planning on replacing the control board.

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.

My picture looks like cartoon characters from new commercials


I had recently noticed the same thing happening with mine.Then the left half of the screen turned black and has various red, green, and blue vertical lines. The right half of the screen shows has the picture just fine. It's exactly right down the middle of the screen.
