TV doesn't turn on, standby light flashes 4 times

When we try to turn the TV on, we get no picture or sound. The standby light will flash 4 times. I know this is an error code but I don't know what it means. I tried unplugging the TV and replugging it in, and It didn't work.

    update: standby light is now flashing 7 times

  • t3Kpwnzmi Nov 30, 2008

    LOL ... I'm having the same problem. It kind of goes through the motions, as if trying to turn on, because you can hear the sound it makes, like that degauss thing that old monitors used to do (because this TV happens to sound like a computer monitor when you turn on) ... but then the stand-by light starts to flash and nothing happens. I haven't really counted how many times it flashes. I thought it flashed indefinitely. Sometimes I push the button out of frustration to get a reaction out of it. Other times I lose patience and just unplug it. Now idea how many times it flashes, although I'll count again tomorrow. Another thing, sometimes the Memory Stick light will turn on too, once, with the stand-by light.

    Speaking of unplugging, that seems to be a temporary solution. I'll leave it unplugged for, basically, ALL day and/or night. If I'm lucky, when I plug it back in it'll turn on automatically and start working as if it's fine. Until I turn it off, then it's no good, and it's back to leaving it unplugged for a few hours.

4 flashes mean the IC5004 (STV9379)on D-Board went bad and the 15V supply is no longer steady. The IC is rather easy to find and inexpensive (around $2.50). Your main problem will be desoldering the old one and soldering the new one. CAUTION! - Heat sink on IC5004 is -15V. Care must be taken not to allow heat sink to touch any other components

Good Luck.

Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.
