Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times.Count it carefully.If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

SOURCE: sony KDFE60A20 TV turns off and on with Red light blinking 5 times

Same problem here. 5 blinks is video related. I've been told to clean the screen by the lamp, as they could be clogged and causing it to over heat. Going to give thet a try first. I'll post what happens...

SOURCE: standby light blinks 13 times

Hi,
13 blinks is backlight error.. can be 1 of 2 things, 1st bad inverter board (on left side panel looking from back) it has several plug ins to the panel as it supplies voltage to the backlights.2nd could be panel itself as backlights are built into it they can't be replaced. Inverter is probably around $200 +labor, panel= buy new tv... they are outrageously expensive. Good luck!

SOURCE: my sony bravia tv is flashing red stand by light

Try leaving the TV unpugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you flashing red light codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Sony Bravia KDL46XBR-LCD. No picture but sound. Trouble shooting light blinks 5 times in cycles. What does it mean.


Hello,

If your television blinks 5 times or for a count of times, it simply is indicating that there is a problem inside the unit.

The problem applying to this situation is a faulty lamp. The lamp is bad and simply need to be replaced.

As soon as you replace the lamp, the television will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck
