Question about Sony KV-36FS100 36" TV
My TV was working just fine, then for some reason the picture went out, but the sound is still on. I tried to unplug it and let it sit for 4 hours, but then did was doing the same thing. I noticed the red light on the front labeled stand by/timer was blinking 4 quick flashes when the TV is powered on and also when it is off. Do you think the TV needs a new blub/lamp??? Thank you.
Those 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.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.

You need to replace the power supply unit on this as it has malfuctioned there about $90 bucks plus labor on that.

You have what is commonly known as a shutdown problem. It's an overload in one of the internal circuits. It needs to be looked at by a professional tv reapir person.
