Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Tv cuts off and green light flashes

When we turn the tv on a few minutes later it cuts off and the green power light blinks for a few minutes then the tv cuts on by itself. It keeps turning on and off but the green light just keeps blinking. Someone please help. TV does the same thing. Sometimes. Turn it on and after a few min. it turns itself off. The green light flashes when it turns off. 30 sec. later it comes back on, after a few min it turns back off, --keeps repeating-- I turn my tv on, it stays on for a couple of seconds then shuts off then the red light starts flashing.

    I have the same exact problem and Tweeter is telling me I have a power supply problem along with a possible error w/ light engine. Did you find a different solution to this problem? If so, please advise.

    After being on for a few minutes the TV will turn off with a click and back on immediately or turns off and back on after several mminutes. And recycles like this indefinately.

    TV will shut off for a few seconds and then turn back on by itself. It happens about every 20 minutes

If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

Broksonic Flat Panel TV, tried to turn back on TV and Green LED light is blinking and screen pops up a few sec with white and colored lines and the turns off


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

TV will not turn on


Hi, It could well be the power supply that is in the back of your set. Have a repairman check it out. It's not a do it yourself thing. Good luck.

Sharp lc-32sb220u lcd tv. Green Power LED flashes steady


Okay, I found the problem. There is a problem with the
ccfl (lamp) groung PCB. Mine is completely burnt through. I am going to attempt to repair it, but will likely need to extract it from a different unit. This board is on the front right of the lx in the lamp housing behind the
lcd panel. What is happening: The inverter circuit on the power supply is detecting that one of the lamps is not lighting and it goes into shut down.

Hope this helps!

Red Light Flashing 6 times


When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.

Lamp problem or else?


You need to get the ballast repair kit #LSUC0002 and replace the parts to your ballast.

I have the exact same TV, did the above this past weekend, and the TV works like new.

You need to know how to solder though. It's not that hard.

Maxent 50" plasma problem


We seem to have had the same problem. Green light keeps blinking but will not turn set on or off. I unplugged the set for a few minutes, plugged back in and works fine but will happen from time to time for no reason.
