Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

My Sony LCD TV Model KDL-46VL150 will go to standby mode after watching for a while. When goes to standby mode, the red light will flash in six times interval, during the red light flashing, the TV cannot be turned on. After about 25 mins, the TV can be turned on again. But after watching a while, it will goes into stnadby mode again. whats wrong ? I have updated the software but it still doesnt work.



Answers :

Hi,

This isn't good. A 6 flash shut down means there is a problem with the backlights inside the panel.This TV was initially introduced in Oct 2009. If you might have bought the TV within last year or so, try to call Sony and check, if they would repair this without any fee unless this would be an expensive repair. This is really common problem on this set and reported many times.

BAD NEWS - Even though it is a problem with backlight inside the panel, it cannot be replaced alone. The complete panel has to be replaced.

The only option i could suggest is to contact Sony and urge for repair.You need to tell them that you are aware that this is a common problem on this set and there is a probability they could repair the TV and charge you only for parts. This is the only possible resolution. I always urge all the people who bought these technologies to buy extended warranties to avoid these situations.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
Hi\015\012
\015\012The red flashing light is a code that the service engineers use.\015\012
\015\012Your TV has a fault.\015\012
\015\012I would expect the power supply or an overheating problem.\015\012
\015\012Is the TV situated away from any heat source, does it feel very hot ?\015\012
