SONY KDL-52XBR2 – SONY KDL-52XBR

LED BLINKING CODE SERVICE MODE BACK LIGHT POWER AND POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT  

SELF-DIAGNOSTIC
Diagnostic Test Indicators
When an error occurs, the POWER LED will flash a set number of times to indicate the possible cause of the problem. If there is more than one error, the LED will identify the first of the problem areas. If the errors occur simultaneously, the one that corresponds to the fewest fl ashes is identified first. Results for all of the following diagnostic items are displayed on screen. No error has occurred if the screen displays a “0”.
1. TV must be in standby mode. (Power off).
2. Press the following buttons on the Remote Commander within a second of each other:
DISPLAY  > Channel 5 > Volume - > TV POWER .

SONY K KV27S45
AUDIO PROBLEM
Unit has a very rapid change in volume when increasing the level from minimum to 4 notches above minimum
SOLUTION
Needs to add a resistor in parallel with R432 to effectively reduce the value of R432. This changes the voltage divider ratio to the volume control circuit and makes the volume circuit more linear in operation.

AUDIO PROBLEM
Sound and picture is fine but when the fixed or variable audio out is connected to an external audio amp and the set is muted a loud pop is heard in the right channel.
SOLUTION
Try to measure if there was any DC voltages that resided on the Variable audio output connectors. There was "4.5" volts on the Right channel and "0" volts on the left channel. When the "Mute" transistors on the variable line triggered they pulled both lines to ground. When the external amp was connected to this circuit the input capacitor for the right channel charged with this 4.5 volts. Still had audio on this line even though it was at a 4.5 vdc potential. But when the Sony muted, the input capacitor inside the Big External amp discharged and caused a tremendous pop. C172 is a .47mfd used to decoupling the audio from IC101 the Variable audio control IC. This capacitor had 4.5 vdc on each leg measured to ground. Removing the capacitor and measuring the DC resistance across the cap measured 175 ohms. Replacement of the capacitor corrected the symptom
