Count the flashes - This is an error code - Usually between 1 and 6 flashes followed by a pause.

I have a sony pfm 42b1 that now has the standby red light flashing continuously while on.... what to do??


It is possible that the TV was hit by a small power surge, and the audio processor is locked up. You need to unplug the TV from the wall for 40 MIN, and that will reset the audio processor back to normal.

I have a 42" Sony Plasma Model# PFM-42B1 was watching tv when picture went out. Red standby light keeps flashing. Was told to unplug for 5 hours then plug back in & count how many times it blinks,...


Hi,

There are a number reasons why this might happen:
  • The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  • The panel has died - Need a new panel
  • A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  • The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  • The driver board is faulty
Thanks

Your best bet, if you have ther board out yourself is PTS Electronics. Techs even feed these guys because they're well known for their quality of work and reasonable price. If you're looking to have a shop there bring the whole set in and work on it maybe this will help.
