It doesn't sound like it would be very stable. Why don't you just call Sony and ask for a replacement part? They will usually quick ship you a part if it was not included at the time of purchase.

If you wish to get some more details about the firmware update, check this link. It has details to some models of Sony TVs. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Pull up previous posts, either by type in the Brand name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide / Flipcard option. Select view option by the drop-down view box, at the top left or the display window.

If you are sure its bad Google the model number for the Service manual, you may have to buy it. The manual should have a exploded view which will guide you in what needs to be done to get to the light.

Note, that if light does not come on it can also be no voltage from another area of the set is reaching it.

Lastly Google the model number with "replace back light in a Sony" as You Tube has some video instructions for some models.

The old standby for almost all Sony sets is with the set off:

(remote control-Sony)

Display, 5, Volume up, power

With set then on the display should show the tech menu

Press 8 and (set will display or should RESET in red, then press enter and it should (reset) turn green---this has been the standard reset on their set for several decades.

Electric current can pass through the tv antenna cables as well. You can try to replace your backlight inverter, but there may also be serious damage to the power supply!

Thank you and best of luck!!

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
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.

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.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

Thanks for using Fixya.
