Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS500 blinking red light 6 times

Over the weekend my t.v. won't turn on it sounds like its going to but then the red blinking light keeps flashing 6 times. I have shut it down for 24-48 hours and still it won't turn on. I am having the same problem. I turn it on and it flashes 6 times. I have unpluged it from anywhere of 60 seconds to 24 hours. This helped 3 times. Now the TV will not come back on but it still plinks 6 times. I have the Sony Trinitron WEGA KV-32HS500. What does the 6 flashes stand for?

My Sony KV36HS500 Trinitron is doing the same thing. Last night the next street over was hit by lightning. The "7" blink pattern was happening, so like the manual stated, unplug it for 4 hours. Which I did. The t.v. is back up and running fine. It's a nice t.v., better than the plasma I paid over a grand for, that's already shot. It's a good t.v. and good that Sony put in the stand by protection to prevent the t.v. from dying an unnecessary young death. Patience, don't rush it, unplug the t.v. and leave it sit. Also, don't use a power strip, that was my mistake, and unplug your t.v. if storms are in the area, I was too lazy to and now I had to deal with this, in 8 years, only twice did this happen. I'd buy another one tomorrow if they still made them.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with
troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one
circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

We've heard this before from appliance repair persons, auto repair persons, etc. "Go out and buy a new TV, this one will be too expensive to fix." And then it turns out to be a $5 part. If this fixes it, you just saved yourself $800 or so.

No picture or sound


6 blinks usually means a loss of the horizontal signal. This can be as simple as a bad capacitor or jungle IC. I'll look up your specific model, but do you intend to repair this yourself? If so, please update this and I'll provide additional details and instructions.

The flashing light normaly indicates that the power supply section is in the protect mode, or has failed, and or there is a failure in the scan amplifier section, and or there is a short most likely there may be a short. There are many things that can cause this type of fault. You will have to take the set to a Sony service center or the equivement to have your set properly serviced.
