Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Sony KDL40V2000 LCD TV not working. When power is turned on and the TV is in stand-by mode, a 'double-clicking' can be heard approximately every 13 seconds. When the TV is turned on using the remote-control, a fleeting programme image will appear for literally less than a second before the TV returns to standby mode with ensuing double-clicking noise. This step will repeat itself 3 times before the TV returns to a standby mode permanently, the red lcd flashing 9 times consecutively.

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

    there is no 500mic cap

    there very well may not be in this unit, but they do exist. - my point was that you can go above voltage but should stay on rating.

    where is the parts house where i can buy a 500 mic cap? please give me the website and you can replace a 680 mic with a 1000 will work fine

    google 500 uf electrolytic, there's a ton of places you can buy them, and no you can't replace a 680 with a 1000 unless it's basically only doing ripple filtering. Capacitors have specific values for a reason, and anything frequency sensitive like ...oh...say...the switching mode power supply or inverter board - require the right value capacitor. Do some research before you start slamming the REAL professionals on this site! Thank you.

    yes ripple filtering thats what a cap does for pure dc switch mode witch caps? and what is freq sens. are you talking capacitive reactince 2pie f/l

  • Norman Skinner
    Norman Skinner Mar 27, 2011

    switching mode power supplies aren't pure DC, they are pulse width modulated outputs that aren't ripple filtered until the output.

    Oh lookie here...500uF caps from 10V all the way to 450V - and this is just ONE supplier !

My sony tv automatically goes into stand by mode and we have already changed the power supply as solution given by fixya .com


If the unit is playing normally then goes to stand-by, it could be also caused by the main board and or the ballast boards. If it is caused by the ballast boards, it should give you error code with the red stand-by light blinking 11 or 13 times. If the stand-by light does not blink a code, it is probly the main board.
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.
