Why is my Sony Bravia turning itself off and why is it flashing red?

The Sony Bravia turning itself off is a big giveaway that there might be a major error somewhere on your TV.

Blinking a certain number of times indicates what model your TV is and there should be up to eight flashes.

If it were to blink eight times then there is a special reset needed but if you’re seeing only four flashes, it could be an easy fix.

Below are a number of things you can try to get the TV to turn itself back on.

Things to try in order to solve this issue

  1. Turn the TV off and back on, leave it for three minutes turned off to allow it to reset.
  2. If blinking persists then clear any vents or slots to allow good airflow around the TV.
  3. If that doesn’t work then turn the TV off again and unplug all connections to it and then reconnect to try again.

What if your Sony Bravia has green and orange lights blinking?

A solid orange light would mean your TV is on a set timer, however, a blinking orange light means there is a software update taking place and the green light is usually solid when the TV is turned on.

When a green and orange light start to blink it could mean there is a software update taking place that is having issues completing.

Simply unplugging the TV for three to five minutes and then plugging it back in should be enough to sort any blinking lights out.
