Question about Sony KV-36FS17 36" TV

1 Answer

TV won't turn on

Turned off the TV (sony kv-36fs17) last night but this morning will not turn on, nothing, no red light seems there is no power. Checked the wall socket and other items work so it's definitely the TV. Found a service center but to bring it in ($75 to look, additional $75/hr) will be very difficult especially at 220lbs. But it will cost $225 for someone to come out and an extra $90/hr. TV is only 4 years old. Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: TV won't turn on

Unless you know Solid State Electronics, there is nothing you can do. At best, You could unplug the TV, remove the back cover, slide out the Circuit board, and check the fuses. They will be at the front of the Circuit board, left hand side. But in all likelihood, it is not just the fuses, the Power Regulator STR would also be short circuited (happens often in SONY TVs) and so it is best that a professional technician have a look.

No Power Sony KV-27FS12

IF the unit is completely dead (no standby light at all) then teh main fuse is most likely open. Try replacing that first. If the stnadby light is on, then when you attempt to turn it on, the light shouild blink. If so, the blinking should be a repeated count with a short pause between sequences. Post that count here as it will indicate what circuit has the problem. We will continue from there.
