    Dan, Yes I can solder. I guess if I had to I could get another power supply board. Though with your assistance I'm confident I can fix this one.

    My stand by/timer light is blinking red and will not allow me to turn on the tv. If I hit the power button it shuts off automatically.

    Any feed back is greatly appreciated.

    I too have the KV-32FS120 and the set will not power on. I get 9 blinks when I try to turn it on. I have unplugged it for two days to reset and get the same result. Can you tell me what needs to be replaced? I have no proble soldering either.

    my tv was turned off and wouldn't come back on just blinking lights. this is a brand new tv my daughter bought for her father and when she bought it no one or nothing in the manuel stated that we would have this problem.we are a family that is just making it and SHOULD NOT have to pay for sony's mistake.Does anyone no sony's number so we can talk to someone directly. To let us know why this is such a common problem with this exspensive product. maybe the bbb should be made aware of this

  • Wayne Rogser Dec 22, 2008

    I have the same problem. When I turn it on it would take it it 3 or 4 times to turn it on and each time the stand-by light would blink before it would stay on. Now it will not come on at all. The stand-by light blinks and that is all. I pulled the power board out but can not see anything that is obvious. Do you think if I replaced the whole circuit board that this would fix it

Yes. The 9 blinks indiate a problem in the power supply area. I need to look up your specific model later today to get you the specific parts. If you are comfortable with soldering and working inside the set, you should be able to repair this yourself.

Stay tuned...

This is not good enough solution. Can you suggest what is exactly wrong and why most of these Sony Wega's have this problem?

SOURCE: Sony TV stuck in stand by mode

the 9 blink code is caused by a bad diode on the pc board. The zero crossing detect circuit is not allowing the power supply to come on .

Sony shuts off after being turned on, stand by/timer light blinks

The blinking should be in a pattern of a count, pause, count. That is an indication of the problem circuit. Can you post that count please? That info will allow me to give you possible defective parts and costs for the repair.

The tv goes on stand by mode by itself. My 57' sony does not turn on but remains in stand by mode. Blinks 9x then stops, then starts all over again. What needs to be done?

9 blink in your Sony KP-57WS500 shows error / problem in Audio section.

1= +19 volts &-19 volts are shorted by any reason on A and B board.
2= IC708 is faulty on A board
3= PS701 & PS702 (fuse) are open on A board.

Above are possible reasons of 9 blinks.
If you have electronics knowledge and have tv repair skills then check as per above info. otherwise I recommend get help of TV tech person or contact nearest Sony service center.
Thank you.
