Sony KV36FS100 - Has sound but no picture and stand by light blinks when TV is off

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.

Thanks,
Dan

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.

Sony 53" rear projection tv picture comes on scrambled and small with the stand by light blinking then the lamps go out. Whenever the channel is changed stand by light blinks again lamps come on for a few...


There are 2 types of Sony rear projection TVs, one that has 3 picture tubes inside and other has one lamp to produce light.
Model number is important to identify what TV do you have so let me know exact model number written at back of TV to find problem reason and suggest its solution.
Thanks.

No picture and no sound just a blinking stand by light on front of my sony kdl40s2000 lcd tv


I have a Sony KDL40S2000 and three months out of manufacturer warranty my TV made a clicking noise similar to feedback in a bad sound system and went to black screen. The error was not recoverable and four blinking lights were seen by a technician. I bought the extended warranty from my store, so I was covered. After one month in the shop, the technician brought my TV back today and told me the panel was replaced which would have cost me 1000 dollars if I wasn't covered by the store warranty. I read on another site the four flashing lights can mean a bad inverter. I don't know enough about TVs to tell you if the panel and inverter are one in the same, I just know you need to get it repared if you get four blinking lights at a huge cost!
