Sony KP-51WS500 Blinks/Flashes 6 Times

I have a Sony rear projection TV and the power light blinks 6 times. I read the repair/schematic manual and it says that it is a Low B OCP/OVP problem and the cause is ? +5 line is overloaded. (A, B Boards) ? +5 line is shorted. (A, B Boards) Well now that i know that is the problem how do i fix it!!! Do the A/B boards need to be replaced or should i try lower the color voltage settings on the TV?? I am totally clueless as to what to do and I cannot afford $600 to fix this tv! Someone please help!!!

    I replaced the A board and still no go.. The 'B' board looks like its brand new, no scorch marks, broken solder, popped caps nothing. If anyone has any clue what it would be please let me know, this is getting really expensive.

Nspect the bottom of these boards for cold solder joints with a magnifier & resolder suspect pins, also check the capacitors on the board, if they are little silver smd type look for yellowish liquid to be present around one or several of them, you need to replace, either of the above could be your solution.

Tv does not come on and the power light flashes 6 times


I'm not entirely sure what that means, but this website says: 6 times, Diagnosis: LOW B OCP/OVP (Overcurrent/over voltage). Possible causes: +5 line is overloaded. (A, B boards), +5 line is shorted. (A, B boards). Symptoms of the problem: No picture.
It sounds like it will need warranty work. You can always try unplugging it and waiting 5 minutes and plugging it back in.
Please don't rank me low, I'm not an expert here, just trying to be as helpful as I can.

Trouble code 6 blinks


Try going to http://getmanual.com/index.php?nav=cat_brands and type KDP-57XBR2 in the search catalogue box. There are three service documents for you there. They take PayPal or credit card. I have used them before and the documents can usually be downloded within a day if not immediately. Hope this helps.

51ws500 sony shuts down and standby light flashes 8 times


Eight blinks points to an audio output problem. The unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

Hope that helps.

Try the following to see what exactly the 6 light blinks mean.

To see the diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:

Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power.

This brings up a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred. This will tell you what is happening and see if it's worth fixing.

Also, have you tried unplugging the TV for a few minutes? if it's some kind of computer error, unplugging it will allow the error to clear and possibly allow the TV to work again. Just an idea to try in case the error code doesn't tell you.what is wrong.

Light blinks 6 times, no picture, no sound


6 times blinks shows error of Low +B, OVP/ OCP
Replace IC6501 & IC8002 [ MCZ3001D ] on D board.
If you are handy with electronics stuff repair and can solder parts in circuit board then replace above said ICs or call local TV tech to do the job.
Thanks.

TV will not come on. TV standby light blinks nine times continuously. TV is Sony KP-51WS520


Nine Blinks- Replace D6116 and D6301 on the "G" board, do not solder as this will fix the problem temporary. Or Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing, then change the switching regulator on the "G" board or check connections. Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negative).

KP-51WS500 Flashing 6 Times


Well, it's DEFINITELY the High Voltage power supply is DEAD! Won't start up...or goes into OVERVOLTAGE SHUTDOWN....

Most of the time it's overvoltage problems...

The KEY to knowing which one is actually occurring is the amount of time it takes before the 6 blinks occur...

A DEAD HV circuit takes a lot of time, while the OVERVOLTAGE will take less than 40 seconds for it to register the 6 blink code....

In this case (overvoltage) replacing the HV oscillator/regulator IC is mandatory...

A dead HV circuit could be anything in the HV circuit, from the Regulator IC to the HV splitter...
It's really wiser to consult a TV technician on this....
