I recently got this sony 57" RP with hopes of fixing it. I have the service manual, and it says that 8 blinks means HV error.
When i turn it on, the blue crt comes on within 1 second, and the other 2 fade in slowly coming to full power after 6 seconds or so. I sometimes get a brief (0.5 second) shot of white noise from the speakers. Right as the red and green crts come up to brightness, it shuts down and gives the 8 blink code.
Most people on the 'net seem to suggest either adjusting the guns with the pots behind the grille to bring the voltage down a touch. No dice. Hope i didnt break anything by messing with them. :/
I was wondering if there's any more troubleshooting or testing i can do before ordering a new flyback, or HV distribution block.
I'm no TV tech, but I know my way around circuits and have DMMs and scopes and such.
Thanks for your help
