SECTION 1 - SAFETY AND FEATURES
SAFETY CHECK-OUT
After correcting the original service problem, perform the following safety checks before releasing the set to the customer:
1. Check the area of your repair for unsoldered or poorly soldered connections. Check the entire board surface for solder
splashes and bridges.
2. Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are “pinched” or touching high-wattage resistors.
3. Check that all control knobs, shields, covers, ground straps, and mounting hardware have been replaced. Be absolutely
certain that you have replaced all the insulators.
4. Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly transistors, that were installed during a previous repair. Point them out
to the customer and recommend their replacement.
5. Look for parts which, though functioning, show obvious signs of deterioration. Point them out to the customer and
recommend their replacement.
6. Check the line cords for cracks and abrasion. Recommend the replacement of any such line cord to the customer.
7. Check the antenna terminals, metal trim, “metallized” knobs, screws, and all other exposed metal parts for AC leakage.
Check leakage as described below.
KDL-32BX320/32BX321/32BX420/32BX421/40BX420/40BX421/46BX420/46BX4217
SECTION 1 - SAFETY AND FEATURES
To Exposed Metal
Parts on Set
LEAKAGE TEST
The AC leakage from any exposed metal part to earth ground and from all exposed
metal parts to any exposed metal part having a return to chassis, must not exceed
0.5 mA(500 microamperes). Leakage current can be measured by any one of three
methods.
AC
Voltmeter
(0.75V)
0.15 µF
1. A commercial leakage tester, such as the Simpson 229 or RCA
WT-540A. Follow the manufacturers’ instructions to use these
instructions.
2. A battery-operated AC milliampmeter. The Data Precision 245 digital
multimeter is suitable for this job.
3. Measuring the voltage drop across a resistor by means of a VOM
or battery-operated AC voltmeter. The “limit” indication is 0.75 V, so
analog meters must have an accurate low voltage scale.
The Simpson’s 250 and Sanwa SH-63TRD are examples of
passive VOMs that are suitable. Nearly all battery-operated digital
multimeters that have a 2 VAC range are suitable (see Figure A).
Earth Ground
Figure A. Using an AC voltmeter to check AC leakage.
HOW TO FIND A GOOD EARTH GROUND
A cold-water pipe is a guaranteed earth ground; the cover-plate retaining screw on
most AC outlet boxes is also at earth ground.
If the retaining screw is to be used as your earth ground, verify that it is at ground
by measuring the resistance between it and a cold-water pipe with an ohmmeter.
The reading should be zero ohms.
If a cold-water pipe is not accessible, connect a 60-to 100-watt trouble-light (not a
neon lamp) between the hot side of the receptacle and the retaining screw. Try both
slots, if necessary, to locate the hot side on the line; the lamp should light at normal
brilliance if the screw is at ground potential (see Figure B).

Self Diagnosis
Supported model
SECTION 1 - SAFETY AND FEATURES
SELF DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION
The TVs in this manual contain a self-diagnostic function. If an error occurs, the STANDBY LED will automatically begin to flash. The number of
times the LED flashes translates to a probable source of the problem. A definition of the STANDBY LED flash indicator is listed in the Operating
Instruction manual for the user’s reference.
If an error symptom cannot be reproduced, the remote commander can be used to review the failure occurrence data stored in memory to reveal
past problems and how often these problems occur.
For complete information, refer to Section 4 - Troubleshooting on page 22.

SECTION 2 - SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
OVERVIEW
There are 2 reasons for updating the software on the TVs.
•
•
Software updates for customers
These updates are for enhancements or improvements that
have been made to the software after the TV was released.
These updates are accessed by the customer from the Sony
Support Site at http://esupport.sony.com.
Software update for servicers
These updates are specifically for servicers to use during a
service call and are only available on the Sony Authorized
Servicer Portal at http://www.sony.com/asp.
SOFTWARE UPDATES FOR CUSTOMERS
The subject of software updates is a very important. The televisions
of today have advanced to the point where they are not simply a
television anymore. They are evolving into devices that are designed
to integrate with numerous other devices found in the home. Some
examples are: Portable audio and video devices, still cameras, home
computer networks and accessing the internet to name a few.
Communications with these varying devices requires that the
television be compatible with varying communications protocols.
Although standards are detailed for each of these protocols, the real
world dictates that occasional errors may occur that could prevent
devices from operating or communicating properly.
Keeping the software in the television up-to-date is a procedure that
is normally handled by the owner of the television. Most customers
who own computers and other digital devices are familiar with and are
accustomed to updating the software in their products. If a customer
contacts the Sony Customer Support Center and it is deemed to
be correctable with a software update, the issue is handled at the
customer level.
Software updates can be performed by:
•
Customer Manual Downloads: Software updates can be
accessed by the customer from the Sony Support Site at
http://esupport.sony.com where they can be downloaded
and placed on a USB thumb drive to be loaded onto the TV.
The instructions for downloading the software file vary from
chassis to chassis and sometimes from model to model. The
customer is provided with the instructions to properly format
the USB thumb drive, unzip the file, and the procedures for
loading the software into the television.

SECTION 2 - SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
SOFTWARE UPDATES FOR SERVICERS
The models in this manual utilize a “generic” type main board. In
the past, many different main boards needed to be stocked due to
differences in software requirements. The software loaded on the
board was specific to the model and its features along with the type
of LCD panel installed during production.
Replacement main boards are now stocked with basic software.
Once the replacement board is installed in the unit, the most current
software needs to be installed using a USB thumb drive containing
the necessary software downloaded.
This new method of supplying main boards significantly reduces
the complexity of replacing LCD panels and main boards.
Information about the LCD panel is stored on the TCON circuits.
This information is automatically loaded onto the main board
when the TV is powered up. With the correct software version the
main board and/or the TCON or LCD panel can be replaced more
efficiently. The software update and procedures for the software
installation are located on the Sony Authorized Servicer Portal at
http://www.sony.com/asp.
SOFTWARE UPDATE RESPONSIBILITY
Software updates are designed to be performed by the customer.
Warranty repairs in which the issue can be resolved by a software
update are not reimbursable. Most issues involving software
updates are handled by the customer service center and should not
be directed to an authorized service center. It is the responsibility
of the servicer to prevent service calls for issues that involve
software updates. Exceptions to this are certain cases whereby the
customer is unable or unwilling to perform the task. In this situation,
the servicer will be notified and receive the proper authorization for
reimbursement.
It is the servicer’s responsibility, however, to make certain that any
TV requiring a legitimate service is running the latest software
version and to install it if necessary.
CHECKING THE SOFTWARE VERSION
The easiest way to check the version of software that is currently on
the TV is to access the Contact Sony screen by using the customer
menu.
In addition to software installation, service adjustment information
may need to be modified or verified to complete the service of the
TV. Service adjustment information is covered in Section 7 - Service
Adjustments on page <?>.

SECTION 3 - CHASSIS OVERVIEW
OVERALL CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
Figure 3-3. Block Diagram on page 21 provides an overview of
the AZ2-UK chassis. Below is a description of the components and
their functions.
A BOARD
Common to all models utilizing the AZ2-UK chassis, the A board
contains most of the video processing circuitry along with all audio
processing. Control of the television is accomplished via a CPU
embedded within the MT5388 processor. Below is a list of the key
components located on the A board.
TUNER
The tuner is a combination ATSC/NTSC unit. It can receive traditional
analog NTSC signals via cable or terrestrial along with ATSC digital
signals via terrestrial (8VSB) or cable (64 or 256 QAM).
MT5388 PROCESSOR
IC U3 performs the majority of the necessary audio and video
processing on the A board.
Analog Video Input Switch: All analog video sources are selected
and A/D converted and scaled (if necessary) to 1280 X 720p 60HZ
resolution.
Digital Audio and Video Decoder: The MPEG2 and Digital Dolby
audio streams are received from the tuner for decompression. All
video sources which are not native 1280 X 720p 60HZ are scaled to
this resolution. Digital audio content is output to the class D amplifier
for processing and amplification.
Audio Processing: Analog audio sources are selected and A/D
converted directly by U3. The audio information is then processed
digitally. Digital audio from the tuner and HDMI sources is also input
and processed. Class D amplifier U8 provides the drive for the
speakers.
HDMI Input and Switching: The customer can select the HDMI1 or
HDMI2 input. Each HDMI input contains a dedicated EDI NVM (not
shown) to provide display information data to any device connected
via the HDMI inputs.
CPU: The CPU internal to the MT5388 processor controls all aspects
of the television functions. Input from the user along with monitoring
of critical circuits is also performed by this CPU.
LVDS Transmitter: Integrated into U3 is a Low Voltage Differential
Signaling (LVDS) transmitter. This circuit converts the 8-bit parallel
RGB video information into a set of high speed serial lines for noisefree transmission to the TCON circuits located internally to the LCD
panel.
POWER SUPPLY
There are 3 different power supply boards used in the models in this
manual. The type of board depends on the size of LCD panel. They
are:
G13 for the 32” models
G14 for the 40” models
G3 for the 46’ models
There are 2 distinct sections on the power supply:
Standby Supply: Continuously operational as long as AC power
is applied, the standby supply generates 3.3VDC for the circuits
requiring power while the unit is turned off. An unregulated 15-volt
line is present to provide power to the main relay, PFC and main
power supply at turn-on.
KDL-32BX320/32BX321/32BX420/32BX421/40BX420/40BX421/46BX420/46BX42119
SECTION 3 - CHASSIS OVERVIEW
Main Supply: Once the power supply receives a power-on command
from the CPU on the A board, the main switching supply is turned
on to provide a regulated 12V source, a dedicated un-regulated 15V
for the audio circuits and an unregulated 24V source for the inverter
circuit.
INVERTER
The inverter receives the unregulated 24V from the power supply
board and generates the required high voltage AC to power the
backlight lamps. A control line to turn on the inverter (backlights on)
is used in conjunction with a dimmer control to vary the light level of
the CCFL lamps.
As of the writing of this manual, the inverter is not available as a
replacement part. The LCD panel assembly must be replaced.
SWITCH UNIT
This board contains the power, channel and volume up/down and
menu buttons.
H BOARD
The power, standby and timer LED’s are located on this board along
with the IR remote receiver and light sensor.

SECTION 4 - TROUBLESHOOTING
OVERVIEW
Most troubleshooting for this chassis focuses on the 3 major
components used:
• The Main Board (A)
• Power Supply
• LCD Panel
This chapter provides practical troubleshooting procedures based
on the various symptoms that will appear when a particular circuit
fails to operate properly. Typical failure symptoms will be discussed
in this chapater with troubleshooting flowcharts for each symptom in
the Section 5 - Flow Charts and Diagrams on page 31.
NOTE: Always remember to check the Sony Authorized Servicer
Portal at www.sony.com/asp to access the latest technical bulletins
along with triage charts to quickly identify the most like part to
complete the repair based on the symptom.
UPDATING THE SOFTWARE
As mentioned in Section 2 - Software Requirements, there are
several issues that may be resloved by updating the software to the
latest version. For a list of possible correctable issues see Checking
the Software Version on page 16.
VIDEO FAILURES
Problems that develop in the video circuits can appear as subtle or
major distortions, a loss of one or more colors, improper video level,
or a complete loss of video. When troubleshooting LCD display
devices the problem must be isolated to 2 major components: The
main board where the video processing is performed or the LCD
panel. In some cases the TCON may not be available as a separate
component and replacement of the LCD panel is required to rectify
a TCON problem.
Distortion in the video signal that affects all inputs can be challenging
at times since any of the above mentioned components can be the
cause. Fortunately, each of these components tends to generate
unique symptoms when a problem occurs. Some distortions may
occur that could be caused by either of these components but a
good understanding of the circuits and further investigation will
isolate the suspected circuit. The following sections will cover the
various scenarios of problems that may occur in the video processing
circuits.
NO VIDEO
A “no video” complaint can be caused by a number of reasons. The
first step is to determine if the condition is present from all input
sources. If any video source is working properly, the TCON (located
within the LCD panel) can be assumed to be OK. The backlights are
also functioning properly. Although it is unusual for a backlight failure
to cause a complete loss of video (the TV will shut down if a backlight
power or open LED is detected) there have been cases where the
backlights have failed to turn on without the unit shutting down.
KDL-32BX320/32BX321/32BX420/32BX421/40BX420/40BX421/46BX420/46BX42122
SECTION 4 - TROUBLESHOOTING
If the loss of video occurs on all inputs, the problem will require
additional diagnostic work. The presence of audio is an important
sign to check for. Missing audio accompanying a loss of video helps
to eliminate the TCON as the cause and would point to the main
board as the culprit. If audio is present, the next step is to determine
if the video loss is occurring in the video process circuits on the main
board, or the LVDS cable link from the main board to the LCD panel.
Service Tip: If a service call is made for a “no video” complaint, a
warranty repair would require the technician to bring the main board
to the location. Install the main board and if the video problem is not
resloved it is safe to assume the problem might reside in the TCON.
If the TCON is not available as a replacement part, this issue would
require replacing the LCD panel.
HINT: One method to test a TCON, which works rather well in most
cases, is to remove the LVDS connector at the panel connection
while the TV is running. Be certain to release the lock tabs and
handle the connector carefully to avoid damage. If there is any tape
securing the cable to the panel near the input, temporarily remove
the tape to allow free movement of the cable.
Carefully insert and remove the connector while slightly rocking it.
Observe the screen as you do this. If any activity appears on the
screen (flashes, lines or patterns) The TCON is OK. The TV may shut
down within a 10 to 20 second period because the protect circuits
have detected a TCON failure. If this happens, simply re-insert the
LVDS connector, turn the TV back on, and try the procedure again.
Normally, you should be able to detect something on the screen
within a matter of seconds.
Figure 5-2. Video Distortion Flowchart on page 32 should provide
assistance in isolating the cause of the video loss.
VIDEO DISTORTION
This is, perhaps, the more difficult failure to diagnose. It is difficult
when talking to the customer on the phone because an accurate
description of the problem must be obtained in order to determine
which part (or parts) to bring to the location. It may also be difficult
for the technician when the problem is witnessed.
If the problem is specific to one or more inputs it should be easy to
determine if the fault lies on the main board or a device that is plugged
into it. If the distortion occurs at all inputs it must be analyzed based
on what appears on the display and isolated to the main board,
TCON, or LCD panel. These components usually cause distortions
that are unique to the specific circuit. Below is an example of the
typical distortions:
Main Board (A Board): Since the video signal is processed on
a frame-by-frame basis it is very unlikely that a distortion that is
occurring on a specific part of the display panel is originating here.
Distortion problems originating in the video process circuits tend to
affect the entire picture. The following are some examples:
• Improper color reproduction or no color
• Improper luminance levels
• Lack of detail in the picture
• Distortions that change with movement in the video
• Diagonal lines
• No video
KDL-32BX320/32BX321/32BX420/32BX421/40BX420/40BX421/46BX420/46BX42123
SECTION 4 - TROUBLESHOOTING
TCON: Since the TCON allocates the RGB video information based
on specific timing information, the distortions tend to be fixed and
usually appears as symmetrical patterns that occupy most (or a
significant portion) of the display. The TCON circuits in this chassis
are integrated within the LCD panel which requires replacement of
the entire panel to remedy a TCON failure. Some examples of TCON
errors:
• Any single, thin vertical line (regardless of color)
• Any thin vertical lines isolated to a specific area of the screen
• A singe vertical column of lines of any color or containing
distorted video
• Any fixed horizontal lines
• No video
• Blotches of black or improperly colored areas
• Thin vertical lines spanning most or all of the display
• Ghosting of images in which the entire image is repeated one
or more times
• More that one column of wide vertical columns which may
appear black or any color, or may contain distorted video.
• Multi-colored vertical line patterns with a repetitive pattern
Service Tip: Whenever vertical lines of distortion appear, select an
inactive input or disconnect the antenna in the tuner mode. The idea
is to not have a high-definition signal as the source. This allows the
picture zoom functions to operate.
Change the zoom mode from the remote commander. If the lines
follow the normal and zoom modes the problem resides on the main
board. If the lines remain fixed throughout the various zoom modes
the TCON is at fault.
LCD Panel: Distortions originating from the LCD panel tend to be
localized with the exception of horizontal line issues. A failure of a
gate driver can cause a horizontal distortion with all video content
below that point appearing distorted. Depending on which gate driver
has failed, the distortion may only cover a small area of the bottom of
the screen if the driver failed near the bottom of the panel, or a large
area of the screen if the driver failed near the top of the panel. With
the exception of visible physical damage, the following are some
examples of LCD panel related distortions:
A thorough understanding of how the video is processed throughout
the chain of circuits all the way to the panel is important. A past
article written for the Sony Newsletter described, in detail, how this
process works.
Figure 5-2. Video Distortion Flowchart on page 32 will assist in isolating
which component is causing the distortion.
AUDIO TROUBLESHOOTING
Since all audio signals are input, processed and amplified by the
main board, any issue involving the loss of audio or audio distortions
which are present at all inputs would dictate that the issue can be
resolved by replacing the main board. It is possible that a software
update might also resolve the issue, but it is very unusual for a
software update to affect all sources. Once again, always check
the Sony Authorized Servicer Portal at www.sony.com/asp for any
known and/or listed issues that are software related.
Audio problems that are input specific (especially the HDMI and
digital sources such as the USB input and tuner) are more likely to
point to the need for a software update and this is especially true if
the problem is intermittent.
KDL-32BX320/32BX321/32BX420/32BX421/40BX420/40BX421/46BX420/46BX42124
SECTION 4 - TROUBLESHOOTING
POWER SUPPLY TROUBLESHOOTING
Failures in the power supply circuits that prevent the TV from turning
on are caused by one of the following scenarios:
BACKLIGHT ISSUES
• Complete failure of the standby and main power supplies.
Under normal circumstances, any failures in the backlighting system
will cause the unit to shut down. If any section of the inverter circuits
fails to operate properly, the unit will shut down and blink the standby
LED in groups of 6.
• Failure of the main supply including the main switching regulator,
PFC circuit, main relay and other components required to turn
the circuits on.
If one or more of the fluorescent backlights fails to light, the overvoltage protection circuit of the inverter is activated. The inverter
shuts down and the same 6-blink protect event occurs.
• The power supply is not receiving a turn-on command from the
CPU.
The recommended approach for a 6-blink shutdown is to determine
if the backlights are turning on before the shutdown. The easiest
way to determine this is to watch for the Sony logo to appear on the
screen. The television will make 2 or 3 attempts to achieve proper
lighting of the lamps. If the Sony logo appears, the backlights are
turning on and the problem is likely due to one of the lamps not
lighting. If the lamps never turn on and no Sony logo appears on the
screen, the inverter is the likely suspect.
COMPLETELY DEAD SET
A complete power supply failure is generally the result of severe
transients in the AC line such as those incurred during an electrical
storm. This model line utilizes a red standby LED located on the
lower left front bezel that is lit whenever the TV is receiving AC
power and is turned off. If it is not lit, and AC power to the television
is confirmed, replacement of the power supply board should rectify
the problem.
TV WON’T POWER ON
This situation assumes that the red standby LED is lit when AC power
is applied to the TV. A lit standby LED indicates that the standby
power supply is operational, and the CPU on the main board is at
least partly operational. In this case it is likely that the main power
supply is either not being turned on or it has failed. Use the power-on
button on the right side of the TV to attempt a turn-on and eliminate a
defective remote control system. Figure 5-3. Power Supply Flowchart
on page 33 will assist in isolating the power problem.
NO BACKLIGHT, NO SHUTDOWN
It is possible for a symptom of no backlighting to occur that does not
cause the television to go into protective shutdown. Dynamic dimming
control of the backlights is performed by monitoring information from
the TCON circuits. This is in the form of data and determines the
brightness level of the backlights based on video content.
If the TCON fails to process the RGB video data, or if the dimmer
data line fails, the backlights will not turn on. Audio will be present
if the selected input has it available. The television will remain on
indefinitely with the green Power LED lit. In this scenario, the LCD
panel must be replaced.
KDL-32BX320/32BX321/32BX420/32BX421/40BX420/40BX421/46BX420/46BX42125
SECTION 4 - TROUBLESHOOTING
PROTECTION SHUTDOWN
STANDBY LED FLASH COUNT
Self Diagnosis
Supported model
Critical voltages and circuit operations are monitored by the CPU
on the main board. If a fault is detected the Self-Diagnostic function
in the TV will force the TV to shut down by the CPU. The monitored
circuit in which the fault occurred will cause the CPU to flash the
Stand-By LED in groups of repeating sequences. The number of
blinks in these groups identifies which voltage or circuit caused the
protection event.
Not all of the available protect codes are used in every model.
For example, models that are LED backlit do not use the 4-blink
balancer error as this circuit is found in models that are backlit with
fluorescent lamps. The following list contains the protect circuits and
diagnostics codes used in the models listed in this manual. Figure
5-4. Protection Shutdown Flowchart on page 34 provides guidance in
locating the possible component causing the shutdown.

SECTION 4 - TROUBLESHOOTING
2X Blink - Main Power Error
6X Blink - Backlight System Failure
A loss of REG12V from the power supply triggers this protect
event. This symptom is usually remedied by replacing the power
supply board. If the error continues after the power supply board
is replaced, suspect excessive loading which is causing the power
supply to shut down. This is usually caused by a failure of the inverter
circuits. Unplug the inverter and turn the TV back on. If a 6X error is
displayed, the inverter (or LCD panel) must be replaced.
If the inverter circuits fails to generate high voltage or one or more
of the backlight lamps fails to light, the television will shut down
and display this diagnostics error. Observing for the presence of
backlighting is crucial in determining which component is likely at
fault.
3X Blink- DC Regulator/Audio Error
The REG 5V and D3.3V source originating on the main board is
monitored for low-voltage conditions by the CPU. A failure causing a
3X shutdown would require replacing the main board.
5X Blink - TCON Error
A communications error with the timing control circuits (TCON) has
occurred. If the TCON is available for replacement, replace the
TCON. If the TCON is not available, the LCD panel must be replaced
since the TCON circuit is part of the LCD panel assembly. In rare
cases a loose or defective LVDS cable could also be the cause.
If the backlights turn on before the 6X shutdown occurs, it is safe
to assume that the inverter circuits are functioning and one of the
lamps failed to ignite. Replacing the LCD panel is necessary. If the
backlights never turn on before the 6X shutdown, the inverter has
failed. If the inverter is available for replacement, replace the inverter.
If the inverter is not available, replace the LCD Panel.
7X Blink - Temperature Failure
A digital thermometer IC located on the main board provides a
temperature reading of the chassis and LCD panel. If the temperature
exceeds a pre-determined point the TV will shut down. If this problem
occurs immediately at turn-on, the temperature sensing IC has failed
and replacing the main board is required. If this occurs after the TV
has been running for a while, check for ventilation issues that could
cause the TV to run hotter than normal.
