Question about Sony KV-32S40 32" TV

1 Answer

Red timer light blinking

When we turn on the TV, via remote or manually, the red 'timer' light blinks, and we get nothing else. We wonder if we accidentally pushed a wrong button, or if we need to call someone out to look at it. My husband has a bad back, so we can't take it in, and would have to call a technician out. This is the first problem we have had with it. I believe it is approximately 6 years old.

Yes you will need to call out a tech to service this for you as this set is not serviceable by the user unless they have solid state repair experience.

I have a 2003 sony kp51ws500 television and there's a timer on the tv and it won't turn on. A red light blinks 6 times then nothing happens. I unplugged, I hit the reset button, nothing happen

read the instruction manual and see how to operate.
if the timer is for to sleep, the problem will be the IC associates with him, you must see the block diagram and w.diagram. and tracking the signal.
go to www. retrevo.com and download the diagram. God bless you

Tv will not stay on standby timer light flashing

On Sony the standby or red is for shutdown---

If you unplug the set and plug it back and turn it on and it repeats this look to see if the light is either constantly blinking or blinking a specific number of blinks---specific number would be an error code.

While watching tv I touch something on the remote to make the tv go into "on timer" The red light is blinking. I have removed power then on again the remote and tv controls work but after 4...

Check the remote carefully for a stuck button. You may have pressed a button and it went a bit crooked getting stuck.
Also, remove the batteries of the remote and try operating the TV manually. If the remote is the cause, the TV will work correctly once you remove the batteries.
Another way to check is by using a digital camera, like the one in a cell phone. Turn on the camera and point it at the remote. If you see a white light coming from the transmitter, the remote is sending a signal. Look for a stuck button.

Sony Trinitron Color TV KV-35V65 - No Picture, red light stand/by timer flashing

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

Sony KV-27S42 not on but timer flashes

The blinking light means almost 100% that the high voltage circuit has failed. Probably need a new horizontal output transistor and flyback. Perhaps an associated resistor or diode. If you have the expertise go for it, otherwise take it to a professional. In any case be extremely careful and safe. Good luck.
