    very much appreciated !
    First Sony tech tried and failed ...he was out 3 times.
    I saw him try a power converter...but that wasn't it.
    maybe this information will help the next not so savvy technician.

· 5 times, Diagnosis: White balance failure (Not balanced) Possible causes: Video out (IC7101, 7201, 7301) is faulty (CR, CG, CB board), CRT drive (IC309) is faulty (A board), G2 is improperly adjusted. Symptoms of the problem: No raster is generated, CRT cathode current detection reference pulse output is small.

AKB is a color balance circuit. It stands for Automatic Kathode Balance and is used in the video circuitry to keep the white balance in the proper level when dosed with color signals that tend to saturate the video level.

It is part of the "jungle IC" in Sony sets and is very important to the overall function of the color processing system.

The repair probably requires some surgery on the jungle chip if not its replacement. Cost of repair could be anywhere from a few dollars to $200 for the new chip.

It will require a service tech with good experience to know about this function, which is quite esoteric in tv engineering principles.

The only suggestion I have before you call in a tech is to do the hard reset (unplug for at least 4 hours) and the vibration check for loose connections or cold solder joints (by whacking the set with your hand or fist with enough force to vibrate the connections inside for bringing them back to life).

What's your problem?Hi, I have a Sony projection TV KP-46WT510 theres no picture or sound, but it still turns on and I can see the the on screen menu. When I turn it on the led blinks four times

You can Google and find the service manual which will explain what the 4 blinks means.

If you have the Sony remote with the set off:

Display, 5, Volume down, Power

If the set has it you will see a box appear on screen with a list of items--all should have a zero to the right of each---one with a number indicates the number of times that error has been detected.

Let me know if you have questions or cannot find what the four means and I will research it.

Sony kp53s65

A rather older set:

picture blinks may be screen controls now set too low

picture dark same or lens need cleaning

color off either adjustments or a Convergence issue

Toshiba model 42 Hp 95 has no picture, no sound and red-light blinks on front power switch has no effect

Depending on how many blinks you got here will determine the outcome of a solution here at Fixya or anywhere else, I am kinda wondering what the expert in chat is saying. But if you can update me with the SOS blinks on the front of your set, This will tell me how I can approach this situation.

thanks For your interested in I will be awaiting your reply.
