The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

I dont have a remote for my tv and it wont turn on manually the led light blinks 9 times and stops and starts again what should i do?


The blinking lights are a service code. You should first try to unplug your TV and leave it unplugged for at least 4 hours... then plug it back in again.

If the blinking light is still there and no picture, time to have the TV serviced. Good luck!

Blinking standby light on the front of tv...wont turn on no sound


They are dropping like flies -
Just posted this for the same set:
The sound; is it a click or a sharp snapping sound? 
The first can be a relay turning on, the second is most likely related to a high voltage discharging. 
If it is a relay, then the set could be trying to protect itself from an overload or the power supply has failed; the blinking ON LED is pointing toward that. 
If it is a high voltage discharge (you may be able to see it through the vents in the rear housing) then it is possible that an accumulation of dust and household airborne contaminents has created a path that can be removed with some targeted cleaning.

If you have sound but no picture it means that your power supply and tuner are working correctly. The number of times the timer LED blinks is the code for the problem with the picture. The computer will stop the picture and blink the timer LED if the vertical circuit stops working, if the picture tube is too weak or if the horizontal sweep has stopped. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Sony sets.
