Question about Sony Bravia KDL-26L5000 26 in. LCD HDTV
Guys here the problem: a month ago, there was a huge power surge and thick smoke came out of my sony bravia lcd...i turned it on after a while and it worked fine....i was surprised as to how it could work..i asked a support guy n he told something about some power surge liquid inside it and blah blah..i honestly didnt understand him...he told theres no problem and it worked fine for a month n now yesterday, the picture started scrambling...it was like...every 2-5 seconds,it would say no signal..picture would come for a few seconds and again it would say no signal...after a while ,the tv would turn off(not standby,just off).... and another peculiar part is,we use inverter/ups at home..when its connected to just ups, works fine!! when its on mains,the problem occurs.. can anyone tell what the prob could be? the tech guy on phone told cud be a capacitor issue but im worried whether its some major problem.. pls tell : 1. what is that "power surge liquid " the tech guy was teliing about ?or what do u think really happend when smoke came? how did it still run?? 2.what could be the current problem? UPDATE : i tried turning it on a few mins back,now it wont turn on at all! it used to work fine on ups..now even the red light doesnt come...i can see its drawing power as i can feel its load on ups...HELP :(
Sure sounds like the power supply board received an insult that allowed a different voltage to work for a while . UPS will regulate top 120 volt whereas mains may be higher or lower . You may be able to change bad capacitors or just buy the power board between 80 to 200 dollars .
If it was connected to UPS during surge it should have been protected...make sure you are connected to 'battery' side as a lot of UPS have a 'surge only' side that will not stop a rapid on/off power insult .

SOURCE: flashing red standby light
Take it down from its mount and try to restart it if this resolves the issue your mount is too tight on the back of the lcd monitor.. This happend to me as well good luck with your BRAVIA

Please count Sony KDL-46V3000 standby light blinks as there would be interval of 3 seconds between blinks. Let me know how many times light blinks as its an error code.

If TV does not remain in standby and turns on itself then power switch on top of it could be defective and power supply board is also suspected. Take off its back cover and unplug top switch connector just to confirm is that cause of On-Off its own. If problem still exist then power supply board has problem and will be replaced. Let me know the results to move forward.

Most likely this is caused by a defective main board. Changing the main board will fix the issue about 95% of the time.
To be absolutely sure, the voltages need to be checked on the power supply. If they are not the values listed in the service manual, then you should replace the power supply instead (accounts for the other 5% of the time).
