Standby Light Blinking 5 Times
This afternoon, while watching some cable on my 60NX810, the TV completely shut off and now the standby light is blinking five times, then pausing for 3 seconds, and repeating this cycle. I am unable to turn the TV on, and after turning off the TV with the power switch on the side of the TV, then unplugging it from the power source, the TV tried to turn on (got the green light), but it immediately shut back off and the blinking standby light started again. From what I can read from research online, this implies the following:
Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
Fortunately we bought the TV in January, so everything is still under warranty. An authorized Sony service provider is going to come out and check out the TV, but I'm a bit nervous that this could become an ongoing problem or lead to other problems.
Has anyone ever dealt with this problem before? Any ideas what might be going on?
