Question about Sony KV-36FS100 36" TV

1 Answer

Video blinking - sound works fine (KV-36FS10)

My TV video will blink at the rate of about 4-5 per minute whenever something is plugged into it. I have a Playstation 2, DVD player and 2 different models of satellite receivers (RCA). The only time the video stops blinking is if there is nothing plugged in and the TV is on one of the 4 video modes or on regular TV mode (static). Changing some of the settings in the menu doesn't help either. I changed the video mode from vivid to high and the it just blinked faster (about once every 5 seconds). Is there an easy way to fix this? Do I need to have a tech fix this and if so, about how much will it cost me? Thanks a bunch for any help.

Sounds like you have 1999/2000 model Sony with a CRT that is showing its age. This would be a tech fix but, most likely not worth the repair cost. It probably flashes slower when the set is cold and gets more rapid when it warms up.

I have a sony tv model kv-27v42 i have sound but no pictture and stand by light blinks what is the problem

How many times do this standby light blinks at a time of switch on? These blinks are fault indications. From the number of these blinks, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. Count it. If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes to Sony TVs, check this link.

Sony kv-27v40 standby/timer blinks 5 times

Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
