    I try to turn on my tv and the power/standby light just blinks. I try using the remote and the switch on the tv to try to turn it on and nothing happens. Eventually it will sometimes turn on after 10 or so tries, but it is getting worse. This just started happening about two weeks ago and I have had the tv for just over three years.

    I have had the tv for almost 7 years. Just the other day I tried to turn it on and the tv sounded like it was coming on then would blink a few times and stop then blink some more before turning itself off. Neither pushing the remote nor the buttons on the tv help. I tried unplugging the tv to see if something was messed up during the storm we had but still no picture or sound comes from the television.

    What does repeated 6 blinks of standby light mean (when set is turned on and immediately tuns itself off)?

This kind of tv have a good picture if you use the component input
most sure you have problems on the zero cross detector or the flyback
I did one like this one for 200.00 if we need the flyback goes up to 275.00

Sony KV-32.FS120 wont turn on and stand by flashes 5 times. Is this any easy and inexpensive fix or not worth the time and money since tv is 6 years old ?


5 blinks indicates that your system has detected fault on Chroma board (Chroma board is the only board connected at the rear part of CRT). Often there are loose connection on IC terminals. Re-soldering of ic terminals can fix your problem.

Hi,
Please reply couple of questions about TV to guess what could be wrong.

1- How many times standby light blinks, there would be interval of 3 seconds in blinks so count pause to pause.

2- Please intimate exact model of TV, written on sticker pasted at back of TV. That will help me to check its schematics.

Thanks.

TV Turns self off- 4 blinks on standby light


Yes, the blinks are error codes. I would not bother trying to figure out what they mean, I can tell you right now. Expensive repair. Average repair costs are 1/4 to 1/2 of the TV's current worth. Most likely a bad transistor. The average expected life span of a TV set is 3-5 years. After that, stuff starts wearing out fast. Time to move on.

You will have to give the set out for service. This is not something you can service yourself.

This can be some failed components in the CRT bias and drive circuits, or maybe a CRT has failed. This has to be determined by taking measurements and doing some tests.

I believe that your set may have been manufactured by Philips.

If the screen won't come on then the diagnostic will never show. The 4 blinks is an error code. If the set is older than 12 years then it doesn't owe you anything, you got your money's worth out of it. Average life of any tv from that genre is 8-12 years. It's time for a new set, or take it in for an expensive repair ( pending parts availability).

Tv won't turn on-red blinking light


This is the most common death mode for TV's. The high voltage is acting up. You set is not quite 10 years old right? Can be fixed, but involves replacing the Flyback transformer which is not cheap. It is a toss-up as to whether it is worth putting the $200 or so it will cost to fix into a set that has limited expected lifetime.
