Sorry to hear this, It looks like you have a bad panel, more specifically a bad t-con board but this board is supplied as part of the panel. The panel for you tv costs over $1000, If I were in your shoes I would call sony and complain, they have been knowen to assist you in some way IE pay for the part and you pay labor or sometimes they take care of the job in full. They are going to want an estimate from an authorized service center in your area. You may want to have one come out and write you up an est and then call sony and complain. Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks
Tim

Sony fb3 boad kdl40v3000 Our tv would not turn on except the flashing standby light. Technician told us we need to replace the fb3 board. The cost is $395 for the board and $185 labor. Is this reasonable?...


This is not a unusual amount for repair. Most repair facilities do not like using used parts on sets they have to warranty after a repair. They would then be liable if were to fail and then they would be replacing it at a greater cost to them. You could check with Sony and see what their retail cost is on the part. Their Customer Service Line is 1800-222-SONY.
I hope this helps,

Sony KDL-40V3000 standby blinks 13 times.


A service technician arrived at my home this morning and infromed me that 13 blinks indicates a bad LCD panel. His quote to repair it was approximately $500 more than the TV initially cost. I contacted Sony support directly, and they have agreed to replace the TV, since it is less than 30 days out of warranty. The KDL40V3000 has apparently been dicontinued so they are replacing with a KDL40V4100(factory reconditioned). I know this won't necessarily help others with the same problem, but if your warranty ended recently enough they will probably work with you to mitigate the expense.

The red light should be blinking a code. For example it will blink 4 times pause then 4 times pause or 5times pause 5 times pause, whatever the error might be. Let me know what it is and then we can help more.
