Re: Standby light blinking
Set has problem in one of the circuits, possibly sweep or video. All modern sets have a diagnostic mode when turned on, such as flashing standby LED. If there is a malfunction, such as a voltage loss or short in one of the circuit boards, the power supply will prevent further damage or fire hazard. Take unit to pro/tech for repair.

Standby flashing light shows that tv got some internal problem. How many times standby light is flashing is info that provide info about what section of tv got problem. Count standby light blinks and let me know, there would be 3 seconds long pause in blinks so count pause to pause.
Please check batteries in remote that seems not working. Sony TV would either turns On or standby light will blinks if TV gets any internal problem. You question shows standby light stays On that means TV does not receive power on command from remote. If standby light is blinking in sequence, let me know how many times it is blinking and also intimate exact model number of TV to find out possible solution. Thanks.
1) This is a CRT based set so there is no "lamp" involved.
2) The standby light should be blinking a repeated count of blinks with a 2 second pause between counts. Please report the exact count here. This will indicate the circiut in which a problem was detected.
With the above information, we can provide you with a more detailed description of the problem as well as the likely solutions and cost.
Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard. After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again? The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation. Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.
TURN TIMER OFF. GO TO SONY.COM, TROUBLESHOOTING, OR
The STANDBY light is flashing on the television and there is no picture or sound.
The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
Turn off the television.
IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.
