Sony 36' TV Volume Goes up on own/Stuck on Video 2

I have a 3 year old 36' inch Sony trinitron that has a ghost! After the TV is turned on the volume rises automatically to full volume. I can adjust the volume down on the panel on the fromt of the TV but not through the remote. I also CANNOT change the TV off the Video 2 setting using the remote or the front panel. I have tried: 1. unplugging the TV for 10 minutes and removed the batteries from the remote. Then replaced the batteries in the remote. 2. Unpluged all the cables coming into the TV and left the TV unplugged overnight. 3. Attempted to enter the diagnostic screen with no sucess. 4. Counted the "flashing" light s as the TV started up. (It never stops flashing until the picture appears.) Amout 12 - 13 times with no pause inbetween. 5. Blocked the front of the TV with a piece of cardboard and work on the front panel buttons to block any possible remotes causing the problems. I am completely lost on what this might be!

Hi -

I had the exact same problem recently with my SONY Trinitron 27 inch TV! After trying everything, I found that pushing the Up and Down volume controls on the TV panel (ie NOT on the remote) at the same time, the problem went away. I hope that this helps!

Hi -

I had the exact same problem with my SONY 27 inch Trinitron recently. After trying just about everything, I found that pressing both the up and down volume on the TV controls (ie NOT the remote) at the same time, the problem went away. I hope that this helps.

Make sure there are no buttons sticking on the remote. open the remote and clean the buttons if your able.

There's a setting in the menu. I think it's called "smart audio". It's supposed to adjust the volume automatically for commercials. But I don't think it works that well. Give that a try.

My Sony trinitron tube Tv 36" seems to be going (its 10 years old

no ....the tube will end up after 20 yrs in 10 yr old sony...
it is worth if u fix it. randomly going black means...horizontal driver trans former is the problem..or any loose contact with the 110 volt supply to that transformer,,or any loose contact with line o/p transformer.. (horizontal driver transformer may be gone
then tv behaves like this) if any other parts gone tv wont come back.... there may be a loose contact call a service pro..

Menu Screen pops up, try to exit and goes to video 1

This could be a stuck button on the front control panel or a bad solder connection on one of the switches on the front control panel.

Apparently, channels have to be autoprogrammed first before those buttons will work.

Our TV is 4 years old but we never used the channel buttons bc it was always hooked up to DirecTv thru video input. SO when we disconnected the TV to sell, we thought it was a problem.

Tired with this sony tv

Sony doesn't want anyone to see a poor picture on a Sony tv so they have a circuit that blanks the video if there is a weak picture or any other problem concerning picture quality. My Sony factory Instructor told me this many many years ago. I'm feeling old...but anyway you need a technician. Sorry.

Sony Trinitron XBR, Stand By Mode?

The 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem in the horizontal circuit. Since the TV recovered once, the problem is most likely to be a bad solder connection in that area. If you can solder, resolder any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. That may resolve the problem. If not, update this and we'll look elsewhere for defective parts.
