In most of the case, the main board is defective.

There is a problem with the processor. The only way to resolve this issue is to replace the main board. It is called the A board in your TV.

There are two for this model and the correct one will depend on what your serial number is.

Part numbers are as follows:
part # 185709211 for Serial #
1,000,001 - 1,350,000
1,700,001 - 1,750,000
1,800,001 - 1,804,270
1,804,271 - 1,818,372
1,818,373 - 1,830,000
list price: $504.87 core charge: $680.00

part # 185709231 for all other serial numbers
list price: $505.87 core charge: $600.00

Problems relating to the automatic turn on and turn off of a set like this usually point to the main board being an issue. For this set, I believe Sony refers to that board as the "AU" board.

It's probably not the G/Power Supply board, especially if it turns itself on. Power supplies will turn a set off, but rarely--rarely--turn itself on.

If there's no kind of extended warranty involved here,
you could be looking at $500.00 for parts and labor to repair this kind of problem.

As always, try any software/firmware updates Sony might have available on their website prior to pursuing a repair visit.

SOURCE: Bravia kdl-40s4100 has no sound, no picture.

Since you have no picture or sound, then more likely to be power supply or main board problem, so check the power supply output voltages first, shorted out backlight inverter board will also cause the power supply to shutdown also, so try disconnecting the inverter from the power supply board to see if the power supply will start back up and at least get the sound back.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER
Take care in solving the problem...

Sony Bravia KDL-60EX500 no longer turns on.


Refer to Sony KDL 55EX500 Troubleshooting Manual Protection Mode Symptom...
5X Blink - TCON & HFR Failure
The 5X blink protection mode indicates a communications error between the TCON/HFR board and the MT5388 microprocessor on the A-Board.
First replace the TCON/HFR Board if the 5X protection mode blink pattern occurs. If the TCON/HFR Board does not repair the problem then replace the A-Board.

Sony bravia black screen audio ok


It is a LCD set and if sound get it in a very dark room and with a flashlight and the set on look to see if you see a very faint image on the screen.

Almost all these sets use a back light system for brightness---an inverter of some type to power the lights---either the back light is bad or the voltage for it is not present or being turned on.

My sony bravia klv40ex600 won't turn on,the light indicator for power,volume and channel is on, the screen is still black


Hi, have you tried pressing the TV button that is under the On/Off button on top right hand side of remote control? Some times its possible to accidently press the DVD or VCR controls and this by-passes the TV as a remote?
Another cause can be a poor or low battery in the remote itself. If you have no luck let me know & we can try some more things, however, I have heard that The On/Off Switch on the TV can be a problem. Goodluck, Jon..

Hi,
4 blinks indicated of backlight malfunction. The unit shutsdown to avoid overload to the inverter board.
Check the backlights, busted backlight has a physical indication of fault like blackened end, crack end. You must replaced the busted one and your unit will back to normal operation again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Sony bravia KDL-40V4100 audio and picture cycling on and off


I'd say about the blinking to a black screen would be your cable provider. As for the stripes that means that your board panels can be going bad, you can try updating the firmware of the TV to help but if that doesn't work you're getting very close to full failure on the TV.

No Picture on TV when Power is on


This seet should provide some diagnostic help. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a pause. Post that count here. Also, is there sound?

The above info will indicate the problem circuit which will then suggest the remedy.

Thanks,
