It could be expensive/uneconomical in terms of professional workshop repair/replacement parts, due to the age of the set, and the availability of suitable generic components.

Because this set is 10 years old or so, servicing by a qualified SONY technician might not be economical; if you wish to obtain a quote on the repairs to this one - the technician can assist you further in greater detail as to the root cause of the original fault(s) and the likely costs involved as well as offering a second opinion as to whether it is worth fixing or not.

Personally in terms of economy and experience I would recommend replacing the whole TV with a newer series model, with an optional extended manufacturer's warranty. People are throwing CRTs out nowadays anyway to make way for plasma/LCD/LED TVs with more advanced features. But it's up to you, and if you do decide to get this fixed for an agreed quote, it could be very expensive.

Many service centres are steering away from repairing TVs with picture tubes, and focusing more on smaller appliances, such as digital audio/computers/iphones etc.

Stanby light flashes green and looses the signal tv turns to stanby then comes back on this happens about every 10 minutes


For the KDSR60XBR1, 5 blinks, pause, 5 blinks, etc. means "Lamp driver error" and the probable cause listed is "Lamp driver is faulty".

You may purchase the lamp driver (power supply block), part number 146893612, for $161.86 at http://servicesales.sel.sony.com/web/productSearch.do. Use the Part or Accessory Number to look it up."

Tv is in stanby mode. when i turn on power it seems like it wants to start but nothing comes up on screen. stanby light is blinking


The problem is in the main board of the tv, it is either a power supply issue or a high voltage problem. In order to isolate you will need a tv tech to check the set out and cost involved.

Why power/stanby blinks light red


how many times does it flash? The back of the manual will usually tell you what the flashes mean. Try this: unplug tv from power. While unplugged, hold the power button in on the TV, not on the remote! Hold for 10 seconds. Replug the power and try to power it up. If you get no picture, you need a repair. Contact the manufacturer for an authorized servicer.

Tv wont turn on


Hello Charliebigwh, hi technically your monitor's power supply has a problem, this is either your switching regulator does not work or there is a short in that section, If you want to do it your self, need to replace all large value, and or high voltage capacitors(especially the capacitors with its top is bubbly), need also to replace the switching IC, and power transistor.

Have it checked by a technician if you cannot do the work.

Sony Wega stanby light blinks 5 or 6 times


When a Sony TV flashes five times, that means that there is an AKB circuit fault.
Six blinks is also a fault related to video problems, and regards a fault concerning the digital board and the Jungle IC (the main CPU).

This means that there is something wrong with the video.
Try first unplugging power for few hours, if that does not work, call a technician, as several IC and components must be tested and eventually replaced.
