SERVICE MODE LED BLINKING CODE AND DESCRIPTION 

SELF DIAGNOSIS 
The identification of errors within the SE1A chassis is triggered in one of two ways :- 1: Busy or 2: Device failure to respond to IIC. In the event of one of these situations arising the software will first try to release the bus if busy (Failure to do so will report with a continuous flashing LED) and then communicate with each device in turn to establish if a device is faulty. If a device is found to be faulty the relevant device number will be displayed through the LED (Series of flashes which must be counted).

SONY TV SERVICE TIPS

CONVERGENCE PROBLEM

TV has convergence of all vertical lines are displace horizontally
SOLUTION 
Suggest tech look for R789 and see if it is open It is on the on "C" board. It The value is around 10 meg. There are two different chassis and CRTs used for this model. If they have the older chassis type that requires H stat convergence (CRT board has H stat control) they need to order the older CRT as per the manual. If newer type (No H stat) then the new CRT as per Service Manual supplement -1 is needed. CRT 8-733-743-05 The H Stat is done using the Yoke ring magnets. I have attached the two Service Manual supplements, and the SB325R1
