yes
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 3 years ago
Sorry I have the schematic and data for this set and there is no ref to any blink code procedure on this set however it does look like it is reporting an error I do not know why they have omitted this as nearly all sony products have a blink code procedure, hopefully you have rebooted the set by unplugging it for 5 mins then replugging back in again?
If I had the set I would be taking voltages and deciding which board to replace on the results of those checks can you use a meter?can you do work with the set?

I know there are 2 blink errors that are pwr supply related & 10 blink error codes for a dead set that are the G & M cba's....seems odd sony doesn't give a referance to these.. yes I can use a meter & take voltages, but i thought the "secret" codes would give a better starting point
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 3 years ago
Yes it would!but I have gone through everything and there is no blink code listed please come back in a couple of hours I will try to find them
