Ok here are the list of codes and what they generally mean on sony tv set (which
applies to many recent model Sony Television sets. Sony has provided a "self-diagnosis
function" with your TV, that in the case of abnormalities or problems the LED or red
blinking light on the Timer/Standby indicator flashes a number of times to indicate the
issue. Here are the values of the various blinks.
0 times, Diagnosis: Power does not turn on. Possible causes include: Power cord is not plugged in, Fuse is burned out (F6001) (G board). Symptoms of the problem: Power does not come on, No power is supplied to the unit, AC power supply is faulty.
2 times, Diagnosis: B overcurrent (OCP). Possible causes: H. OUT (Q8024) is shorted. (D board), +B PWM (Q8035, 8038) is shorted. (D board) Symptoms of the problem: Power does not come on, Load on power line is shorted.
3 times, Diagnosis: +B overvoltage (OVP). Possible causes: IC501 is faulty (G board), IC5002 is faulty (G board). Symptoms of the problem: TV has entered standby mode.
4 times, Diagnosis: Vertical deflection stopped. Possible causes: +- 15V is not supplied. (D board), IC8003 is faulty. (A board) Symptoms of the problem: TV has entered standby state after horizontal raster, Vertical deflection pulse is stopped, Power line is shorted or power supply is stopped.
5 times, Diagnosis: White balance failure (Not balanced) Possible causes: Video out (IC7101, 7201, 7301) is faulty (CR, CG, CB board), CRT drive (IC309) is faulty (A board), G2 is improperly adjusted. Symptoms of the problem: No raster is generated, CRT cathode current detection reference pulse output is small.
6 times, Diagnosis: LOW B OCP/OVP (Overcurrent/over voltage). Possible causes: +5 line is overloaded. (A, B boards), +5 line is shorted. (A, B boards). Symptoms of the problem: No picture.
7 times, Diagnosis: Horizontal deflection stopped. Possible cause: Q8035, 8038 is shorted. (D board)
8 times, Diagnosis: High voltage error. Possible cause: T8005 is faulty. (D board)
9 times, Diagnosis: Audio error. Possible causes: +- 19V line is shorted. (A, B boards), IC708 is faulty. (A board), PS701 or PS702 is opened. (A board). Symptoms of the problem: No sound
Ok your light is blinking five times this usually mean in most of the cases that i have
seen a crt drive ic has to be replaced, but in other cases i have seen it was just a
leaking capacitor or a bad transistor the thing it is hard to say from here without me
troubleshooting the tv set myself, my advise to you is to contact your nearest tv repair
shop let them service the tv set it shouldnt cost you more than 300 dollars to get your tv
set up and running,but that also all depends on the tv repair shop.
Thank you very much.
