Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-27FS170 TV
Hi when i switch the tv on sound comes on straight away but video takes upto 3 minutes to appear. the front led is blinking 5 times red, then once green the set is connected to a sky+ box please help thanks neil
Many of the later model Sony TV?s have a built in self-diagnosis function. AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks 5 times for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. In other words, the IC chips on the Cboard are burned out. This repair is not one that should be attempted by the end user. This repair will need special test equipment. You will need to take it in for repair. It shouldn't cost more than $170-$200. This is cheaper than a new TV set.
