Hi Sophia
Video Memory Failure
Same as a computer
Either way it is still not something that can be fixed easily
Probably LSI Chips on motherboard.
Other Bravia's are showing similar faults on this site.

Warranty or Insurance time

Search the internet for the service manual using the model number. The service manual will indicate what fault causes the 2 blink code. Then you will need to trace down the problem with and digital multi meter.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Ubnormal DC voltage output from it. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.

I can't say for sure, but I have an KDL 46XBR5 and it may be similar to the 52". The stand is most likely being held in place beneath the back cover like the unit I have.

After you unplug the tv, lay it on a flat surface with a very soft clean blanket so you don't scratch it up. Place the television face down with the stand facing you.

Now if you look very closely, you may see little arrows (they look like this : -->) and little triangles all over the place. Disregard the triangles altogether, but remove all of the screws that have little arrows (again, they are the ones with he "->" pointing to the screw. There could be anywhere from 16 to 24 screws.

Make sure you put them back exactly where they came, there are usually different sizes). A piece of cardboard with a rough diagram drawn with marker helps, just push the screws into the cardboard where they line up on the tv.

Once you remove the back cover, you will see the stand has two large brackets screwed into the back of the television. They are vertical from the bottom.

I have attached diagrams showing the removal of the back panel as well as the bracket for my KDL46XBR5. YOURS MIGHT LOOK DIFFERENT but should be somewhat similar or at least give you an idea to go by

Note: If I am not mistaken, there are two black insulated copper ground wires connected to the bracket. If you disconnect the brackets, you will need to figure out where to reconnect these ground wires most likely or remove them altogether.

Hope this helps

We have a SONY XBR4 and we are experiencing the same issues. When you turn on the TV, the right side is dark, then there is shadowing with movements. After about 15 minutes the picture is fine. Sometime shortly after you will get a dark area in the middle of the screen (this doesn't happen all the time). I called SONY, they were not helpful at all. They told me because the TV was not under warranty - it is only a year and a half old, they couldn't do anything for me. We had one of their service people come out to look at it. They basically told us its the panel and it has to be replaced. The cost is $2000. NEVER BUY SONY AGAIN!!! You might as well go and buy a new TV.

Netflix doesn't cost much but you do have to pay for it. $7.00 a month for streaming and 8.00 if you want DVD's. If you are a memeber Netflix will help you @ netflix.com. Your tv has to be hooked to the internet.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.
