Hi,
The power board has a fault or it is sensing a fault from another circuit and shutting down. If you have an electronics background and some test equipment I can walk you through what to test. Or you can take it to your local TV service center.

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!

If the monitor power light is on or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

Hi there try to power off printer then power back on, this is usually a print job that is qued up but not printing, also if you have any print jobs in your windows printer que, delete them with the printer off. this will clear the printer. otherwise check for a paper jamb.


Also try
Hello there Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

No sound no picture power buton flashes green for a long time then turns to red and flashes for a long time then solid red


Your power supply will have to be replaced most likely. You can test the power coming out of it with a voltmeter. This is a common problem
