In some models of LCD TVS; the backlight inverter and its T'Con board will be a part of the panel itself, and will be a built-in type inside the LCD panel. If so, they can't be replaced. In this case; a panel replacement is the only repair. For some other models, the backlight inverter section circuit will be a part of the main power supply regulator [SMPS].

Actually try one more thing before concluding that there is something wrong with the sound board or one of the wires in it on this Sony Bravia television. The cable box settings might not be just right for this television. Are you currently set to pcm or bitstream on this cable box? pcm might also be displayed as 2 ch 48 or 96 khz. Play around with the sound settings and see if one or the other will solve this sound issue before writing off the television.

Can you please count the number of blinks in between each pause so that I can tell you what the problem is? Its a self-diagnostic error code that makes the diagnosis a lot easier

Hi Friend,
Check your TV's remote battries. If they are good, then, power off the TV at the main wall socket and unplug the power cord, leave it for 5 minutes. Now, connect back the main power cord, hold the Power On/Standby button on your TV and power then turn ON main switch on the wall. This should resolve your issue.

Thanks,
Shiva
