Hey guys, I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction here. I have searched so much my head is spinning.
I have a Sony Bravia KDL46V, about a year and a half old. A few weeks ago my Sat. dish was hit by lighting and took out my DirectTV reciever, and also the HDMI port on the TV that it was connected to (that HDMI port no longer works).
When you look into the back of the TV, you can see an orange light blinking near the HDMI ports.
Shortly after the lighting strike, the TV started turning itself off sometimes, with the red standby light blinking twice. After unplugging for a minute or two, it will turn back on. I did look and see that the error code is B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits.
I have noticed that the TV only seems to shut down if it is warm in the house. One night it happened twice and I put a fan behind the TV and it didn't happen again that night.
Are there cooling fans in this TV that might not be working? What is the blinking orange light near the HDMI ports, and does anyone have access to a service manual?
I would love to fix this myself, I hate having to put money into such a new TV, but I love this thing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have searched and searched with only very limited answers. Thanks guys!
