Question about Televison & Video

Sony television will not turn on

I have a 3 year old Sony FD Trinitron Wega KV-30HS510 30" HDTV monitor that will not power up.

About a week ago it decided to just not turn on. For the first week we were able to get it to turn back on after waiting a few hours, but now it will not turn on at all. The set also has a blinking red light, I believe it repeatedly blinks 7 times.

When we were able to turn it back on, we had no problem, picture was beautiful as well as the sound. After a couple days of having this problem we decided to leave the set on. After a couple days with the set left on, no problem during this time, my daughter accidentally turned it off. Now it will not come on at all.

This is a flat screen television that is extremely heavy, at least 200 pounds, or at least that is what I have been told. All that I know is that I can barely move it.

I have been doing some research and it seems to be a very common problem, especially with this paticular model. I have read that many people are upset that Sony has never issued a recall to the point that they will never buy another Sony product again, even after being loyal sony costomers for years.. If you could help in any way, I would be so grateful...Sharon

Your right it is a common problem for Sony direct view tvs you could have a couple of problems. One your video IC is bad. you could have a puffed cap on the power supply. Or you could have a bad horizontal IC. If you really want to get it fixed I would contact your local service center. But you are probbly looking at around 200-300 to get it fixed if partes are avialable.

Comes on and later goes blank

How much later? The Sony sets have a setting in the menu that turnes the TV off if there isnt' any input, Sometimes this feature gets messed up, and the feature has to be turned off, Check that out and see if that takes care of the problem.

You may want to try disconnecting the power for about 30 seconds and rechecking the TV. Otherwise, it may not be worthwhile repairing.
