Tv stuck in standby

I have sony nicam tv - unsure of model, as receieved from a friend without remote or manual. recently bought dvd recorder and was attempting to set up the recorder remote to control the tv. followed instructions and held down power button whilse pressing the code number 8. however, then accidentally pressed 9. the tv went into standby mode, and i cant get it to turn back on. have tried different code combinations on remote and unplugging the tv, but still nothing. how can i get the tv out of standby mode? im not bothered wheter the dvd recorder remote works with the tv or not, but at the moment, the tv is useless.

Re: tv stuck in standby

I believe these Sony TV's have a built in obsolesence and Sony does not care about fixing them. I don't think a 7-year old TV is an "old model". Who can afford to by an expensive TV every 7 years. Shame on Sony.

Re: tv stuck in standby

If you can not turn on TV set with the power button on the TV its not a standby problem as this would by pass the standby. Theres most likly, on a set of this age, top have a poiwer regulator problem and is going to need a trained tech to assist you in this repair.

Connecting JVC television set model AV29LX2 / JVC home theatre system/satellite decoder / Sony DVD recorder

You need to buy a splitter in order to put one to the DVD recorder and one to the tv from the decoder. You should be able to get one at the Local Radio Shack or other electronics store.

If you need help locating a store, please let me know

I receieved a SYLVANIA 6432GG TV with a remote. The remote control doesn't work. The previous owner had programmed a Comcast remote control to use on the TV. I don't know how to reprogram t

GOOGLE THE MODEL NUMBER OF THE SET (IF ORIGINAL REMOTE) WITH "manual" which would get the owner manual to do this.

Each set is different in this process.

Tv cut off and the standby/timer is the only thing blinky will not come back on

Sounds as if your timer is stuck on. Do you have the original remote to this television.? If so, does it also have a dvd or vcr recording device built in? If it does you need to go to the menu, if you can bring the menu up at all, and find the timer settings, and try to get the timer off. If that doesn't work, try leaving the tv unplugged for a while. Hope this helps you.

No remote control works anymore

good evening friend. you seem to be having problems in your standby circuits if no remote works on the tv, but you can operate it manually. the standby circuits always stay on that is how you are able to power up the set. go to your remote infrared circuits when this problem exists find the standby transformer and the other parts of this circuit. check for opened or shorted components. find the transformer fuse and bridge rectifiers. somtimes these can be on a seperate board. you might even find a transistor and zener diode regulation circuit in the output voltage source. be very mindful of that standby crcuit. thank you and please rate this solution

Standby light stays on and the tv will not go on

Please check batteries in remote that seems not working. Sony TV would either turns On or standby light will blinks if TV gets any internal problem.
You question shows standby light stays On that means TV does not receive power on command from remote.
If standby light is blinking in sequence, let me know how many times it is blinking and also intimate exact model number of TV to find out possible solution.
