KP-46WT520 9 Blinks

A call to Sony and they have no idea what the "Switching Regulator" is.  Can any one give me more advice on what my problem is and what board it is located on?

The switching regulator is in

The switching regulator is in the switch mode supply but if that is bad most likely nyou will find other parts bad too.  Your problem could be on the "G" board or the "D" board.  Hope this helps.

I pulled the "G" board over

I pulled the "G" board over the weekend and brought it in to work (we make power supplies for medical equipment).  They didn't think it was the correct board.  They will test it anyway.  I will pull the "D" board tonight and bring it in tomorrow.  Thanks for you help!

Larry, I received the service

Larry, I received the service manual and I thank you.  Work is telling me that the "G" board is fine.  He doesn't want me to remove any more boards and wants to come to my home to look at it.  Can you tell me if it's not the "G" board which board it would be?  I don't want him making my problem worse.  My faith is not that high in him.....

The old 9 blink 46WT520

The old 9 blink 46WT520 problem.  There are 2 diodes on the G board causing this. I don't have the referance numbers but you can use standard diodes.  I'll look them up today and post later.

MOtvGuy, we have checked diodes D6301 and D6116, they test fine.

Did you disconnect one end of

Did you disconnect one end of the diodes and check both ways of the diode at high resistance? One way should check and the other very very high resistance.

I have the same model that

I have the same model that started doing the same thing (9 blinks) on Sunday. Hope to change the diodes and fix it when I find what diodes will work in place of the originals.

 

Thanks,

Mark

Mrk55, The D6301 part number

Mrk55, The D6301 part number is 6-500-567-21, and the D6116 part number is 8-719-081-97 and are available at http://www.partstore.com or a local Sony parts distributor should have these common diodes  Good Luck and let us know if this helps you out.

Larry, both diodes tested

Larry, both diodes tested with high freguency using a Fluke 73 III.  I am told that they don't need to be removed to test????

I understand what your saying

I understand what your saying but just for kicks, test them the way i suggested.  I dont know how many times my meter said the diodes were good but then it turns out they were not.

Hi Larry,

Hi Larry,

Thanks for the info, but the D116 comes up as not available from Parts store.

 I did put the MMDL914T1 in a Mouser part number search and came up with a match. Mousers # is 863-MMDL914T1

Thanks,

Mark

Larry, thanks for the

Larry, thanks for the disclaimer.  We both feel that changing out the 2 diodes is way too easy to fix the problem so we fully expect more issues.

I just think it is great that you give your time doing this (I hope that this is your job and you get paid).
