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.

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!!

Soumd goes out after about five minutes after you turn it on

The sound card should be troubleshooted. Check it for any dry soldering [loose soldering] terminals.
Resolder suspected solder terminals, by applying a little more fresh solder, with out making any solder bridge short in between adjecent solder points. If this do not help you, replace the sound card.

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.

Standby light continuously flashes with no picture or sound

count the number of blinks; you may have to unplug the set and try to turn on again--if it does not blink in a sequence(3 blinks, a pause etc) the set is in shutdown and many things can cause this.
