Sony TV/Standby Timer Blinking Codes

Hi!
We have a Sony that is eight years old,the remote was broken not to long a go.
Can the instructions be accessed by a Universal Remote?
The TV keeps blinking & we can't stop it,just found this site & instructions to find out what is wrong with it.
It's a KV-27????,can't get in the back to see the exact model.
Please can anyone help,we are getting headaches & can't watch TV & we so much want to watch the CMA'S tonight.

Thank You!

You should read this.  If you

You should read this.  If you are not a tech or have TV repair experience, im sorry to say there is not alot that can be done to these sets as they are all solid state and have no user replaceable parts inside them.  These type of repairs are repaired down to componet level.  If you want to read more about repairing TVs go Here  or Here .  If you need any more assistance please feel free tio ask.  Good Luck and let us know what had to be done to the set to get it to work.

Hi Mr. Dillion,

Hi Mr. Dillion,
The self-diagnosis function,to find the fault codes,don't know how to retrieve it with a Univeral Remote since we don't the orginial remote.
When the TV is turned on the red light flashes until the TV comes on & is no longer lit.
The light flashes more than indicated in the eight blinks indicated in the instructions.

The TV picture is what keeps flashing.
The TV was working fine until we bought the Universal Remote & that's when all this started happening.

So could it be that the Univeral Remote did something to the TV?

Thank You!

Oh its the screen thats flashing?  Thid could be a fault in the Kine bias circuit, or maybe a bad picture tube even.

Hey.

Hey.

I've got KDF 60XBR950 and 3 blinks.  Can you tell me what this means, and whether I need to call someone to fix it (and if so, what it should cost, roughly).

Thanks

Have you opened the lamp door

Have you opened the lamp door recently, or someone opened it and did not close it fully?   This could be the cause of the 3 blink code in these TV sets.  Or perhaps the bulb is not seated correctly, or there is a bad switch on the door assembly.   Good Luck

Thanks for the response.  I hadn't even heard about these blinking codes.  When I called the shop that sold the set, they told me it was the lamp (I didn't realize that there was a separate indicator for the lamp).  So I bought a lamp and replaced the existing, and of course, this didn't solve the problem.  When I replaced the lamp, I did notice that the plastic face plate that covers the lamp opening looked like someone had stepped on it (it must have been this way when I bought the set - who knows why).  But then again, the set has worked great for two years without anyone having removed the distorted faceplate.  I've re-installed the lamp a couple times.

6 flashs mean there is a 6

6 flashs mean there is a 6 volt issue, could be a bad G1 board?Should be done only by a trained tech though. Cost too much to play around, you could ruin the set!

I have a KDS-A602020 and the lamp went out. I bought a replacement Philips lamp and have installed it. I bought it with a new housing and everything to avoid having to take bulb portion in and out. Once I replaced the bulb the TV fired up fine but about 1-2 minutes into watching it the picture flashes for a split second and will continually do this after that. I have gone into the settings where they have a

unplug the G board and look

unplug the G board and look up ptscorp.com and call them to see what they charge to overhaul that board. or if you are handy look up that complaint here on this site as there is loads of instructions here on that problem.

I have a Sony KDF-55e2000. I

I have a Sony KDF-55e2000. I was getting the three flashes and could not seem to get tv to work by playing with the lamp cover. I removed the switch which looked like the soldering of the connector had failed. I ordered a new switch however when i had removed the switch, the wires came out of the connector. How can I find the order of the wires to the connector for the new switch? Also, there are only two wires and it is a three prong connector. Is there a wire diagram available?

Also to clarify, it's the green standby light continuous steady blink 1 per secondish, which from the codes I take it to be the data bus is busy.

We have a KP-53HS10. The

We have a KP-53HS10. The standby light blinks 5 times, then stops for a few seconds, then blinks five times again. All the time, the picture blinks off and on. We have had it repaired 2 times now. They replaced the video board/card (not sure which one they called it), charged us $400.00 and brought it back. It didn't help, it was still doing the same thing. They picked it up again, kept it for two months and then returned it, free of charge. Said it was fixed. It is not fixed! It still blinks 5 times, the picture still blinks on and off and we don't know what to do?
please help!
I realize it is an older model, but its a Sony and we were hoping it was worth putting $400 dollars into it. The tv is in great condition otherwise.
