Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi, My tv is am Australian SONY Bravia KDL46XBR - 3100, I purchased it in 07. My problem is when I try and turn my tv on there is sound for 30 seconds but no picture then it switches itself off with a 5 blink fault code. Sometimes the sound doesn't come on either, but also occasionally the TV turns on and works perfectly but it's very few & far between when that happens. I have an extended warranty with a 3rd party, but it doesn't cover lamp replacements so I want to make sure it is or isn't that before I lose my TV for 5 weeks for them to possibly send it back saying that it's not covered under my warranty. Thank you very much for the help.

Hello,

Below are the interpretation of Sony TV blinking codes, so check the one yours fall under. Also, note that your warranty would be void if you open the TV back or unscrew the TV back cover. And to fix this problem, you must open the TV back cover. So the choice is your if you want to fix the TV yourself or use your warranty.

ONE Blink--- not used for the self-diagnosis

TWO Blinks---B+ over current protection (OCP) , unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits.

THREE Blinks---B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.

FOUR Blinks---No Vert. Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505

FIVE Blinks---AKB circuit (AKB), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. Also unit be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

SIX Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.

SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.

EIGHT Blinks---Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401 and 402.

NINE blinks - Replace D 6116 and D 6301 on the "G" board, do not resolder as this will fix the problem temporary. Or Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negative).

TEN blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board.

Good luck.

Sony Bravia KDL46XBR-LCD. No picture but sound. Trouble shooting light blinks 5 times in cycles. What does it mean.


Hello,

If your television blinks 5 times or for a count of times, it simply is indicating that there is a problem inside the unit.

The problem applying to this situation is a faulty lamp. The lamp is bad and simply need to be replaced.

As soon as you replace the lamp, the television will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

Sound problem


Go into your TV settings and change the Automatic Volume Control Sound Mode. It's probably at Dynamic and the TV is trying to adjust the volume. The popping sound may be caused by static electricity building up on the circuits of your TV or cable.

Does this also happen when you are watching a video/DVD?
