The problem with the television is from the power panel of the television, it is receiving power but not getting it to the main panel of the television so as to power the screen that is why you are having the static sound from the speaker of the television.

Once you can replace the power panel of the television, your television will be in good condition once again. You can locate the power panel, it is the panel the power cable is connected to, so once you open up the back of the television, then trace the power cord to the panel it is connected to.

A replacement will do the job.

Take care

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

If the IC's say have STK printed on them, then they are the convergence IC' s. should be three of them, replace all 3 , and the burned green coils, sometimes these burn as they supply the volts to the STK's. good luck, be safe..

You have already diagnose the problem,the set has a loose conection in the high voltage area or horizontal drive circuits but dont be suprize if you find more loose conections or overheated areas,while you are looking for this loose conection giving you this problem take the time and correct any other questionable spot.If you are familiar with tv service this will give a place to start but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer,it should not be expensive.Let us know if youu need more help.

there is a convergence board in the back of the tv that needs replaced..my tv was doing the same thing and i rto be replaced the board and it works perfect now.the part should run under 100.00 and has to be soldered in place.

Sony KP-61V45... • Answered on Aug 17, 2008

around 400.00 would be fair pricing wise

It sounds like the high voltage distribution block but that is not the cause of your problems,the tuners you talk about are the picture tubes ,one for each color,the blue picture tube was arking and you got lucky and got 6 more months of use, it and might have corrected when you drop it but now is the red doing it and you need to do the same but it might not work this time,dont be surprise.Be carefull while trying things in the back,there are high voltages there and is not safe unless you are familiar with tv service.
