Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your Sony Trinitron Television. I am so sorry to hear the picture has gone out. I know how frustrating that can be. I have researched this issue for you and I recommend having a technician complete the repair for you as this can be a complicated repair. Your television has a self-diagnostic function. You mentioned that there is no picture and that it blinks 5 times. I am assuming that the Standby/Timer LED is blinking. The number of times it blinks indicates the possible causes of the problem. If there is more than one error, the LED will identify the first of the problem areas. Five blinks means that the probable causes are the Video Out is faulty, the A board is faulty or G2 (Screen) is improperly adjusted or a color tube is going out.

Diagnosing the issue will require special equipment that a technician will have on hand. You can schedule an appointment through our www.SearsHomeServices.com site or by calling 1-800-469-4663. If I can be of further assistance, please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Q:

Is a 4x blinking error code worth fixing on a 9 year old Sony?

A:

I have a Sony TV model KV-27S42. the red light is blinking 4 times then solid red.

The error code means that the TV detects a problem with the vertical circuit. I can only guess without making checks but usually this involves changing out a resistor, an IC, and a cap. These parts themselves are not expensive, maybe 25 dollars or so, but the cost of having a tech come to your home and first diagnosing the problem then having to come back to install the parts he confirmed are defective drives up the cost considerably. You can call service for sears and they will give you a price for going out, then you will add labor to that. They cannot give an estimate without verifying the problem. I would shop around and see if what kind of prices other repair shops are offering so you can get a ballpark of how much you will spend. If the shop is somewhere you can drop the set off it should be less expensive.

The question you gave is whether or not this is worth fixing. The cost right now of LCDs is around 400-500 for a 26" name brand with deals and specials for even lower. These TVs will be High Definition and have ATSC tuners. I can't tell you that the LCD will last as long as your CRT but the life of that Sony tube will keep getting dimmer and eventually go out. That will not be worth fixing.
