Question about Sony KP-61V80 TV

Won't Turn on, standby LED lit

My Sony KP-61v80 will not turn on. When I plug it in, it almost sounds like it might turn on. When plugged in, the standby LED blinks once and then remains lit. The power button on tv or remote doesn't do anything.

    there was a pop sound, then the sound and picture went off. the standby/on light was still on but nothing. I wasn't able to turn it on or off, so i needed to unplug it. wheni plugged it back in the light would blink 3-4 times then nothing. no sound or picture.

Mine just bit the dust too!! How ironic. My grandson was watching it and all of a sudden no picture! The light on the front still showed power to the TV but remote could not turn it off. Only way to get light out is to unplug from AC. Help!!

I'm working on my 1996 model KP-53v35 Sony. The problem is that I plug it in and it tries to come on and the red LED flashes and it shuts off.

If the lamp light is blinking, then lamp needs to be replaced. If the standby light is blinking, the try resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then the service may be required.

No picture or sound, standby led flashes 11 times when first turned on after AC plug has been removed and reinserted into the AC outlet. Every attempt to turn on after the initial attempt yields 6 flashes...

It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. The flashing LED is justa coincidence I would think.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

4 times flash of standby light shows that TV has problem in Vertical Deflection area and possible causes are IC1509(V out) is broken and / or Q1505(V Pulse Buffer) is broken.
Please check / test above said IF you have experience of TV repair.

Sony KP-61V80 wont turn on

This is a very easy fix actually all you need to do is replace that cap and the set should be fine, this is a very common problem on your model. If you look on the board and give me the location of the cap I will be happy to look up a part number for you.
