    I have a sony TV as well and it turns on when it feels like it usually in the morning but if I go to turn it off and then back on it will not turn on until the next day. The red light flashes and it makes the sound like it is going to turn on, but the light just flashes and then it turns off. We bought the TV in 2003 for over 3000 this should not be happening. I called remairman and TV will cost over 350 in parts and 200 labor I don't know what to do.

I have had the same problem twice. The complete PC Board had to be changed on mine for it to start working again. The part usually runs around $150 not including labor.

A couple of easy things you could try is to unplug the TV from the AC over night, to let it discharge, and see if theres any difference, and also try to connect it to another power outlet. anything else is a bit tricky - if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set to a repair shop. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. Its possible that you got some dry joints, look for poor soldered joints on the high voltage side, and resolder them. Good luck

TV power button comes on to turn tv on & goes right back off but nothing on screen & no sound


This could be alot of things but I tend to lean towards a power supply issue. The short story is that when your tv starts up, it checks alot of things to make sure they are correct. If one of the voltages is off, then the tv protects itself and turns back off. In my experience when they turn back off its almost always power supply issues. It could be a card pulling down the powersupply, or the neat gizmo that powers the light. But I have not seen alot of that.

Generally if its not a power supply fault that the tv just cant tolerate it will flash a code at ya. Blink blink (Im messed up and here is the number of the fault) Blink blink BLINK!

I wish I had better news, however powersupplys are one of the cheaper and easier things to fix.

Best of luck

Rca model D52W20BYX1 comes on for a moment then goes off rite away

rca model d52w20byx1 itc222. sounds like shutdown mode. Does the led flash. unplug the set leave set unplug for 30 min. this reset procesor. now i tell you this in the shop its never that simple but it first step. IF you have a flashing led when you push power button. it tells you alot. it tells you main fuse is good the processor is getting power and it detects something wrong. leading causes are shorted horzontal output transistor. shorted cp150 capacitor. technicians have a computer that read error codes much like that of a car. let me know if i can help troubleshoot it down.
