    My stand by/timer light is blinking red and will not allow me to turn on the tv. If I hit the power button it shuts off automatically.

    Any feed back is greatly appreciated.

  • mkurp Jul 25, 2008

    I too have the KV-32FS120 and the set will not power on. I get 9 blinks when I try to turn it on. I have unplugged it for two days to reset and get the same result. Can you tell me what needs to be replaced? I have no proble soldering either.

    my tv was turned off and wouldn't come back on just blinking lights. this is a brand new tv my daughter bought for her father and when she bought it no one or nothing in the manuel stated that we would have this problem.we are a family that is just making it and SHOULD NOT have to pay for sony's mistake.Does anyone no sony's number so we can talk to someone directly. To let us know why this is such a common problem with this exspensive product. maybe the bbb should be made aware of this

    Same problem - standby light blinks 7 times and you cannot turn it on again. However, it had a relapse one day and actually turned back on for a week, then went back on standby!

  • Wayne Rogser Dec 22, 2008

    I have the same problem. When I turn it on it would take it it 3 or 4 times to turn it on and each time the stand-by light would blink before it would stay on. Now it will not come on at all. The stand-by light blinks and that is all. I pulled the power board out but can not see anything that is obvious. Do you think if I replaced the whole circuit board that this would fix it

  • misstalent May 01, 2009

Yes. The 9 blinks indiate a problem in the power supply area. I need to look up your specific model later today to get you the specific parts. If you are comfortable with soldering and working inside the set, you should be able to repair this yourself.

Stay tuned...

This is not good enough solution. Can you suggest what is exactly wrong and why most of these Sony Wega's have this problem?

SOURCE: Sony TV stuck in stand by mode

the 9 blink code is caused by a bad diode on the pc board. The zero crossing detect circuit is not allowing the power supply to come on .

TV does not turn on. Stand By LED blinks 4 times and pauses and blinks 4 times again Tv will not turn on...when plugged in the red stand by light flashes 4 can hear the tv turn on but a black...

On older Sony, sometimes a power surge causes the set to be in shut down mode. Try unplugging for 5 minutes and then plug in and try. This many times will fix.

Sony shuts off after being turned on, stand by/timer light blinks

The blinking should be in a pattern of a count, pause, count. That is an indication of the problem circuit. Can you post that count please? That info will allow me to give you possible defective parts and costs for the repair.

Blinking stand-by light

I'll need to verify this for your specific model, but usually the 6 blinks means that there is nohorizontal pulse. The 7 indicate a high voltage shutdown. Since the symptom changes, I would look first for poor solder connections in the horizontal circuit. Can you solder? If so, update this and I'll try to provide more details.

TV won't turn on

The 9 blinks usually mean that the power regulators are shot. This is a relatively simple repair and is a wear and tear item. Expect about $25-$35 in parts plus the local labor rate for the total repair cost. If you want to try and repair it your self, I can look up the part designations and numbers.
Keep me posted.
