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.

On the WEGA the panel control module and possibly the left side planer board is done for. On the other sounds like the planer board on the dark side is done a well. Get your son a Gaming type monitor cause this will continue to happen due to the higher refresh rates demanded on the gaming software. Sorry Ed Pinero
I have KV-X2982U, With the television on 4, Grip the top side of remote control RM-833 and reverse it, putting it back in the holder. Press Menu on the remote. Several options appear. Press the white button "Preset". You can then manually tune in the setting to channel 4 by pressing the green button, or alternatively you could tune in all channels automatically by pressing red. You may get a better signal on the other channels this way. Good Luck.
I don't know if this will help anyone else, but I sure hope it will. I had a similar problem with TWO of the three Sony 24" TVs I had bought together. TV#1 konked out a month ago; TV#2 messed up last week. So I called the Sony Service Center, and this very nice guy told me that a lot of times this problem occurs because the TV isn't plugged directly into the wall (most people plug theirs into a power strip/surge protector). When it happened to TV1, we hadn't been using TV2 so we just traded their locations and the "bad" one sat there waiting to be thrown out...and sat and sat and sat. Well, I was pretty hot when it happened again a month later to TV2. The service center guy told me to unplug TV2 and replug it in the wall after about 1 minute and turn it on. Nothing happened. Then he told me to plug in TV1 and turn it on. I did, reluctantly. And it actually worked!! I don't know if anyone having this problem has a week to be without their TV, but the guy said sometimes it takes up to a week of sitting to get it to work right again. So I'm waiting a few more days before I try to plug in TV2 to see if it works again, but for now, at least I've got one TV back. Here's hoping you all have the same experience. And then I guess we'll have to decide whether to plug back into a power strip (mine was actually plugged into my cable TV's DVR machine) or into the wall.
