Hello to all, I have a Sony Wega KV36FV17 and am having it serviced on Saturday. I have a few questions to ask and see If I can identify a problem BEFORE the tech starts tearing it apart. The power/standby light normally used to blink 6-7 times on startup--now it blinks 11-12 times upon FIRST startup. After its warm it reverts back to the 6-7 times. There are no other problems after startup. I know there is an error code for # of blinks but Im not sure how many blinks indicate an error code. Also, about a month ago I noticed on bright screens, the top of the picture is starting to flicker. It does so on all sources esp when viewing menus on DVDs and cable guides. Upon my first call to Service tech (circuit city)--when I explained the problem, he said he is pretty sure its a "power module" and is ordering a replacement. I know CC techs are not the best, but as of right now, its my only option. Is there a bigger problem that I should be aware of? Has anyone experienced similar problems?
