Hello Tom,

I would like to answer your television question.  There are not any resets for blink codes for this model of television, the electronic controller runs through self-diagnosis each time the television is turned on.  If the blink is still there, the issue is still occurring.  I do not know the blink code, but from the age of the television, it is likely to be a 4, 5 or 6 blink and that would most likely denote a failed CRT tube and that is the end of life for this television.  If you would like, reply back with the blink code initially and also if it changed after the board replacement.

I look forward to assisting you further.

Hi Jerry, The problem I had was 7 blinks, (horizontal reflection) and upon testing with my DMM I found NO AC going to both upper or lower horizontal reflection loops. nor did I find any AC on the test points directly behind the two connection points. CP504 and CP505, and TP504. This made me curious so i checked IC504, and it was not testing correctly as was not getting what I was supposed to the leg 1 9v leg 2 5v, and leg 3 12v so my conclusion is that IC504 was bad, then I checked c514, and c515 wile the tv was on, and these two caps were also dead. thus the rest of this board... audio amp no power (also on this same board) all in all board a is bad.... Upon "Scrumpling" the web I found this for my TV. thanks for the help, I hope you learn something... http://www.techlore.com/article/15444/Understanding-Sony-Television-Blinking-Codes/ Many of the later model Sony TV�s have a built in self-diagnosis function. If the timer/standby indicator is blinking, this could be an indication of a problem with the unit. The diagnostic blinking will occur automatically with no action required by you to engage it. and to answer my own Question: IMPORTANT: After you repair the unit, you MUST clear the values on this diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault is corrected, so if you don't clear them, you'll be seeing "old" fault codes the next time you enter this screen. Clearing is done by going into the service mode (display, channel, 5, volume plus, then power ). Press 8 and Enter, which returns everything to the factory preset condition.

Hello Tom,

There are some items that you have not clarified in your posts. You stated that you are ordering the board and that you want to clear the codes that is displaying in blinks of the standby light. There is not a method of clearing the blinks on the DA4 chassis, which is the television type that you are working on, if it is indeed the standby light that is blinking. There is a method of clearing the self-diagnostic result display, but this is only needed if the television turns on after a repair is completed. The link that you referred to in your last post is for later generation Sony projection type televisions and much of the information does not apply to a CRT single tube television such as the model in this thread. When you repair the television, the standby light will not blink and the only indication that will be left is within the self-diagnostics and clearing it only assists in future repair. Again, the link that you have posted does not apply.

Knowing that this is a seven blink error, we will approach this issue differently. The more common cause for this issue usually occurs on the D board and I am wondering why the A board has been chosen as the suspected failure point. IC504 is a 5 volt regulator and it will not function if there is a 7 blink error. The blink code error only occurs if the system is in shutdown and the power supply is not fully up and running at that point for obvious safety reasons. There is no voltage supplied to the circuits that you have referred to above and the test that you referred to does not denote the source of the problem. The deflection circuit is substantial on this model, the drive is actually initiated on the B board and then goes to the D board where the circuit relies on the +135 volt line for secondary driving of the primary drive signal prior to being stepped up again at the high voltage transformer.

To even begin to test for this, you will need to have an oscilloscope and be familiar with it�s operation and able to verify the existence of the H Drive Pulse prior to shutdown. The H Drive from the B board will only pulse momentarily and a DMM will not read it with any accuracy at all. There are multiple transistors within this circuit that must also be tested. At this point, from the information that has been posted on this thread, this television should be taken to a television repair facility or contact Sears Home Services for a Sears Television Technician. The other option is to install a D board and hope for the best, but I caution against this due the potentially life threatening current that is developed on this board specifically. Performing a D board replacement on this television will require direct contact with the high voltage transformer. I suggest not ever attempting a repair on a television prior to obtaining model specific diagrams and information due to the inherent risks.

The 6 blink error that your TV is showing can be caused by a few different things inside the TV. Most possible options causing the issue are located on the D board. The D board part number is A1300319A. A new board is not available any more. A replacement or rebuild board will cost about $200 or more depending on availability. For the size of the set and the price for the part I would recommend to replace it. A new TV will come with a warranty covering all part of the new TV.
