    My Sony Trinitron model number is KV-35540. The red "standby/timer" blinks at the same rate consistantly and the television won't go on.

    Sorry, my eyes aren't as good as they use to be...


  • moonmagic555 Jul 19, 2008

    Myself and two other people tried to notice a set of blinks but could not. It blinked about 1 blink per second with no pause, not even a slight pause. We timed for 60 seconds and came up with 57 blinks...does this mean anything?

  • moonmagic555 Jul 19, 2008

    I think the blink set is 3, slight (almost unnoticable) pause, 3, slight pause, and so on.

  • moonmagic555 Jul 19, 2008

    how about every three blinks?

I will need to know the model number of your set to help you as well as if the light blinks a certain number of times in between pauses. Please respond to this same post.

    KV-35540 isnt a valid sony model number, from any models I am aware of. What contry was the sony made for? so I cant really help untill I know the correct model number.

    That model should be blink a error code in between a slight pause. Its hard to notice but it should blink a set rate pause briefly then continue that cycle.

    The only codes that register for your model is 2, 4 or 6 , but I am checking further as they may have changed chassis during the model based on serial number as sony is famous for doing that. I will reply as soon as I can locate some more info for you.

When you turn the tv on the red light on the front(stand by/timer)flashes and the tv starts to come on and then it turns off.

Do you mean the screen turns on briefly or the stand by light just keeps blinking. If the tv turns off after switching on then it probably means a protection circuit fault. Also please provide me the number of times it blinks before it pauses. Awaiting your resposnse.
