Question about Sony Televison & Video
Seven blinkings of stanbylight in Sony sets denotes a High-Voltage shutown problem. Not means the high line voltage, but the fault inside the tv itself. You haven't mentioned about the model number of your TV, yet I'm going to describe you considering this as a standard Sony problem.
The fault is mainly due to the internal power supply regulator section in your TV. It is now supplying voltage more than normal that it is meant for, as a result the EHT [Extra High Tension] voltage to the final anode of the picture tube goes higher than normal, and the microcomputer Ic inside your Tv detects this voltage difference and giving you the fault symptom in 7 continous blinks. That Ic is so programmed such, it will blink with certain times according to the fault comes inside, and helps us to locate the faulty section without opening the TV.
As I said above the fault in your TV lies on the power regulation section. You just open your TV and locate that section, which can be easly located as the main power just goes to that portion, and there will be a regulator normally Sony uses STR***** type IC regulators, which will be screwed onto a metal heatsink to radiate heat from it while it works. These will heat up to 80 degree C, while working, and the heat generated by this ic can cause loose solderings on its legs. You resolder its leg solderings, and suspected solderings around it, by applying a little more solder. In most cases this will resolve the problem. Ok.
