    I've Sony KV32FQ86U. Few days ago, I tried to turn on my TV and red standby light flashes twice
    and TV makes clicking sound like it's about to power up, but nothing
    happens. Tried unplugging, did not fix.


    Sometimes it powers up after 2-3 hours but once you turn it off, it goes back to the same status as above.

    Can anybody help in finding out what's wrong? How it can be fixed?

Fortunately, Sony, of all manufacturers, has built in a diagnostic tool to help you decide what the problem is.

Below is a text on these codes. This is not your model, but the basic diagnosis remains the same. You can count the number of blinks and then look up the problem and solution below:

-----------------
Sony Blinking Codes
Many of the later model Sony TV's have a built in Self- Diagnosis function. If the timer/standby indicator is blinking, this could be an indication of the problem with the unit. The diagnostic blinking will occur automatically with no action required by you to engage it.
The timing of the blinking you see would be as follows: two to eight blinks (depending on the fault) about a third of a second apart, then pauses for 3 seconds, then the two to eight blinks about a third of a second apart again.
Here is a list of the problems that might have occurred indicated by the number of blinks. The words in parentheses are those which you will see for each of these faults on a diagnosis screen described later in this article.
Unit is dead and there are no blinks---Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse, R607, Q601, IC601, R612 and VDR601 (should show open)
Continuous Blink Once A Second, No Pausing As Discussed Above---

No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground or held high), IK video path is defective.
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 selfdiagnosis
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.
Intermittent problems ?? This is a great feature. You can also bring up
these fault codes ON-SCREEN to see a list of the problem numbers with the
abbreviation of the problem and the number of times this problem has
occurred. This is slightly different than entering the service mode. To see the
diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:
Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power. This brings up
a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred.
Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, "OCP", "OVP", "V STOP", ETC.
We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the "Blinks" described
above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink
codes.
So, now that you know about these self-diagnostics, how do you use them?
Say that you have a set with a black screen. You see that the LED is blinking
4 times....This would tell you that you have no vertical and that is why the
video is muted. If it was blinking 6 times, you would know that you have a
horizontal fault.
It's not a sure cure, but it's a little better than a poke in the eye with a sharp
stick.
IMPORTANT: after you repair the unit, PLEASE clear the values on this diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault is 0 corrected, so if you don't clear them, you'll be seeing "old" fault codes the
next time you enter this screen. Clearing is done by going into the service mode ( display, channel, 5, volume plus, then power ) then press 8 and Enter, which of course returns
everything to the factory preset condition.

----------------

As a general rule, the blinking standby light means serious problems and you would be better off getting a technician involved.

This set is a very expensive one and it has some life left in it. Further it is a Sony, so you will be wise to get it fixed.

After studying the blinking codes, let me know if you have any further questions.

Have a great Holiday Season,
Cleggsan

The clicking sound may be a power relay coming on and then off--problem indicates a trouble in the main power supply.

Tv stand by red light flashes twice continuosly


This unit is having a problem with component failure and is going into the protection mode. This protects the unit from further damage. You will have to take or send your television in for testing and service.The service center will have all the service information to analyze the problem and do the repairs. If you had given the brand name and model number of the television, i could have directed you to a customer support website or telephone number. This information can be found in your owners manual. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
