Question about Sony KP-53HS10 TV
I was watching tv and it just went off. The red light keeps flashing.
I see this is an old post by now but in case you are still waiting-
Nearly all modern electronics uses a 'switched mode power supply.'
They are more efficient but also much more prone to failure but offer the added benefit of being designed so a 'downstream' fault will cause the supply to enter a cyclic state to avoid setting fire to your home.
The supply itself will also cycle if it has an internal problem; once again, to prevent destroying iteself or anything dependent on its outputs.
Supplies built a couple decades ago could only do this by blowing a fuse and there are conditions that can occur that would not blow the fuse but would allow overheating and further damage as well as fire.
