Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 40 inch

I turn on the Television and the picture shows as if it's going to stay on and then suddenly the picture goes black and no sound or picture at all, just a "Stanby" light blinking on and off. I have tried to pull the plug to the television and then plug it in again... it worked last night, but tonight it's doing the same thing again. HELP!!!

    4 times. It keeps doing this forever...it never stops. I sent it to an authorized service center and they are looking at it now...no answers as of yet.

  • Joe Verde III Jan 28, 2007

    We will find out if your right...it's still at the sony authorized dealer to be fixed. Thank you for all your help. Any idea how much a new panel costs???

    i have the same problem. and of course, i lost my receipt and circuit city has no record of my purchase. (i think the customer service guy was just incompetent, i'm going to try another circuit city)



    it happened to me 6 months ago. i unplugged the set for a month (yes, a month), and it didn't happen again until recently. i have a feeling if i ever send it back to sony, the problem won't happen at the service center (damn that murphy's law)

How many times does the timer light flash between pauses? That will be a starting point.

  • Anonymous Jan 28, 2007

    4 flashes indicates possibility of a bad panel.

We have the same problem.. Checked the Sony site after a few clicks got to: http://www.iq.sony.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=966,E=0000000000761838071,K=1708,Sxi=1,Case=obj(460991),VARSET_OBJ=460991,VARSET_TSRC=results,UseTemplate=case.tem,VARSET_TOP=TRUE
We followed the 'simple' troubleshooting tips then called the service center. As mentioned above 4 blinks indicates a bad panel. The repairman that visited said that he is ordering a new power supply (much cheaper than the back panel) for their first try. I will post again when my set is back on.

It sounds like a main board failure but could be a power supply issue as well. The set will need to be diagnosed

My Sony BRAVIA KDL-46V3000 Television has messed up colors on left side when first turning it on.....after 5 or 10 mins the picture is normal.. Also without turning on the receiver (only TV) can't select...

This also happened to me and may continue to get worse... If it goes away for a while after warming up, then it is the same problem... The LCD panel is probably going out, when that happens the cost to repair it is more than the tv is worth... If it is in warranty then you can have it replaced or fixed.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S4100 Television 40 inch picture stopped...

If the green light stay's on but no picture, meaning black screen! Then you have a bad back light inverter. You can order this at www.shopjimmy.com, select sony then your model number.

If you are somewhat handy you could do it yourself! but it requirestaken tv fully apart. There are a lot of screws that should be baggedseparate as you go along. To ensure tv can be reassembled. follow thesesteps or have a expert do it!

1) remove shell (casing)
2) remove second layer, this will have your signal boards on it (a/v etc...)
3the back light inverter has a metal cover over it, with very tinyscrews. Also you will see multiple wire plugs going into it. Usuallywhite/pink or white/blue.

If this sounds to confusing Irecommend having an expert do this work! If you have found this helpful. Good luck!!

Part is $89.95
