    my tv does the same start up sounds ad the stand by light blinks 7 times.

    Mine is having the same problem. The first time I left it unplugged for a day and it came back on when I plugged it in. I had left it on several days suspecting a power supply issue. Had a storm last night and power went off, now it won't start-up again. Funny thing I had a 27" Sony Trinitron, about 10 years old that did the same thing about 6 months ago. A cold day before I buy more SONY junk.

    My tv sounds like it is going to power on, but there is no picture. This was after an electrical outage which we have had before and nothing has gone wrong. The standby light continues to blink a few times slow and then fast.

    I have disconnnected the tv and reconnected, but to no avail. I did not leave it disconnected overnight like someone suggested.

    Please help!

    Thank you,

    I have the same problem with my SONY TRINITRON KV32HS500...I hear about this issue with this tv over and over...hmm...I wonder if is a manufacture problem...I called Sony and they say is not, which after reading all your posts,sounds hard to beleive...I tried everything in the book to fix it and called about 3 repair shops. Fixing this will cost between $300 + to $600 + depending upon if the "flayback" or Conection Board" can be fixed or needs to be replaced...Is it worth the money and effort? Warranty for this service is a max of 90 days...after reading your postings I've decided it is not...specially if like many of you have said...even after repairing it, the problem cames is unfortunate that SONY is not owning up to their product...this DEFINATELY IS a manufacture thing is clear though...I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER SONY PRODUCT...thanks for your all saved me few hundred bucks and more frustration...Thanks!!

    Just got the same problem today (2-19-08) that everyone else is getting. Sounds like the TV will turn on, but just get a black screen and the blinking lights. Have owned the TV for about 4-5 years also. It's too much of a coincidence that all these units are suddenly breaking at about the same age.

    Have same problem, bought tv 5 yrs ago, stand by blinks numerous times, I have noticed when this started happening, if tv is OFF for a period of time, I was able to power on, recently .... I can't have it OFF for 10hrs or so and repower on anymore.

  • catd Feb 24, 2008

    I'm having the same problem. Bought our TV just about 5 years ago. I have the standby light blinking 7 times, all the pop on sounds, but no picture. This is ridiculous. We all need to contact Sony.

  • mcpacman Mar 01, 2008

    Exact same problem. Seems like it turns on, then turns off and stand by light blinks 7 times. I'm going to contact the repair shop today to see how much this costs to fix. Very frustrating. I also purchased a Sony cam corder last year that also broke. Sony must be going through a quality issue. Wouldn't mind if I didn't pay over $1,000 for this T.V.

  • tdstrickland Mar 03, 2008

    Same exact thing with mine just 2 days wants a $99.00 trip charge...I'm sure they are well aware of this issue...

  • Susan33 Mar 04, 2008

    Add me to the list of Sony rejects. I bought mine from a TV shop, took it back to them for repair. It powered up in their shop but when I got it back home, nothing. Love the tv if it ever works.

I can't believe this problem is so common to this particular Sony TV. Happened to me the other day, too. "Pops" like it's going to turn on, but no picture or sound....only Standby light blinking 6-7 times, hesitates, then 6-7 times again. I'm nursing mine by not only turning the TV off at night, but pulling the plug out of the wall. It sits all night totally unplugged from the power source. In the morning, I plug it back into the wall receptacle and it comes back on. I tried this after about 4 hours one day and it would not come on. Seems it has to be turned off for a good 8 hours or so before it will work. This is just a band-aid, I'm sure. I am deciding whether to let the Sony service people come out and look at it. I want a ballpark figure to fix it before I decide to let them come out to I can make a good decision about whether to put that kind of money into it or buy a new TV altogether. I'm so disappointed after reading how common this problem is. I thought Sony was one of the best brands. I paid $1500 for this TV 5 years should last 10 years like my last one did.

I have been having the same problems for the past one month. I have been pushing the power button again after it stops blinking from the first time. I hope someone can find a better solution soon.

Posted on Feb 20, 2008



Mine started this yesterday and yes when I hit the button again it turns on too. My question is does it cost a lot to get this fixed?

Posted on Jan 16, 2008


My problem is similar. However if I hit power button again it comes on normally.

This symptom is usually caused by a breakdown in the power-supply circuit. in most modern receivers (transistorised and/or ic), it may also be caused by a breakdown in the horizontal deflection circuits (horizontal oscillator, pre-drive or drive circuits.). this is because the supply volatages for the tuner, video intermidiate frequency(VIF), video amplifier, sound intermediate frequency(SIF) and vertical output circuit are usually supplied by the horizontal output circuit. but if you are not inclined with this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck and happy valentine!

Stand-by light blinking 7 times, wont turn on

Just a guess but could the be classed as a power save mode?
You could try pressing the stand-by button on the tv for about 10 to 15 seconds and see if it makes any difference.
I'm not sure if it will but I've been having to do the same thing on some NEC monitors I've recently been installing.
Sorry if it doesn't help.

My tv wont turn sounds like its going to but

The 7 blinks are an error indication that is generated by protection circuitry inside the set. A problem has been detected and the set is shutdown to prevent further damage. The cilnking is the power relay that is attempting to turn on the set. I'll look up the eror code and update this with the likely solution later today.


Tv wont come on and a red light is blinking. I have a Sony Wide screen projection TV model kp-46wt520

Can you unplug the TV for about 15 seconds, and then plug back in and watch the stand-by light. Tell me how many time the stand-by light blinks in regular intervals. If it doesn't blink at all, you need to change a fuse on the g-board. Once this is done run back through the stand-by blink light process, and more troubleshooting can be done if problem isn't already solved. If the stand-by light just keeps blinking with a count over ten just tell me, and I'll look for other possibilities.

Tv turns on then off, stand by timer light blinks 4 times

You need to replace the power supply unit on this as it has malfuctioned there about $90 bucks plus labor on that.

Samsung sp-r4232 power button blinks 4 times but tv wont turn on

I have this TV. My father in law tried to turn it on one day and it started making a clicking sound and never came on. So he went out and bought a new tv and gave it to me. It came on when I brought it home and worked for a couple weeks. Then just the other day it stopped working. When you hit the power button the light around it blinks four times and then you here a clicking sound. TV does not come on. Took the back panel off and I don't see any damaged caps or fuses. b435b80e-6d09-419f-a021-9b8a430e0a74.jpg

No sound no picture, the stand by light blinks four times

If you have the above model, then the four blinks indicate a backlight failure. The back light inverter board might be defective or the voltage from the power supply (+24v) is low or missing.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

No picture, no sound

I don't have a listing for your model, so I'll need to research this one a bit. The 7 blinks usually mean a high voltage shutdown though. Check the regulator IC on the power supply board. Once I find the manual for this, I'll try to get you more specifics.


Stand by light blinks 6 times, wont power on

Here you find sony blinking codes

SIX Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking selfdiagnosis
function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.

SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k
and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply
regulation and horizontal circuits.
