Stand-by LED blinks-no picture or sound

I was watching tv when i heard a noise eminate from the television. When I pressed the remote "on", the stand-by LED blinks and I hear a relay "click" sound, but the tv has no picture nor sound. No smoke. The unit has operated flawlessly for the past 8 years. The picture was perfect when the problem occured.

Re: Stand-by LED blinks-no picture or sound

The symptom is usually caused by a breakdown in the power supply circuit. in most modern receivers (transistorized and/or ic), it may also be caused by a breakdown in the horizontal deflection circuits (hor. oscillator, pre-drive, or drive circuits). supply voltages for the tuner, video if,sound if, and vertical output are usually supplied by the horizontal output circuit. but if you doesnt know anything about these stuffs, better bring it to a qualified service tecnhician

I have a Sylvania TV with dvd/vhs attached and do not have the remote. I can't get the tv on channel 3 to watch cable. I have tried numerous universal remotes but none of them have worked. Please tell me...

Here is a process to program a Vizio Universal remote. I saved this info to my computer as a text file some time ago. Can't remember where from, so if it works, no credit to me. :-)

Sylvania:10054, 10030, 10171, 11944, 11931

1. Manually turn on the TV.

2. Press and release the TV button.

3. Press and hold the SET button until the LED blinks 2X.

4. Enter your Codes

If the code is accepted, the LED flashes twice after the last digit is entered.

If the LED does not flash twice, repeat Steps 2 through 4 with the next code listed.

5. Point the remote control at the TV and press the POWER button. The TV will turn off.

Vizio Remote Reset

(Use this step if the LED doesn't blink twice after entering the above codes)

1. Press and release the TV button.

2. Press and hold the SET button until the LED blinks 2X.

3. Type 9-8-2, the LED should blink 4X.

4. Now follow the steps above for Programming the TV again.

Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206. For more information go to

Un plug and let stand for one minute. If it still does blink then use the reset on the remote and press it while pressing the power button on the TV.

If you have sound but no picture it means that your power supply and tuner are working correctly. The number of times the timer LED blinks is the code for the problem with the picture. The computer will stop the picture and blink the timer LED if the vertical circuit stops working, if the picture tube is too weak or if the horizontal sweep has stopped. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Sony sets.

No picture / No Sound / No nothing

that sounds like the Hi voltage transformer went bad.. If your a tech simply disconnect the horizontal output transistor and see if thats shorted. If it is then it is for sure the HV transformer. If its not shorted look in the main power supply. Its cost is around 40 bucks or so and the transistor is about 15 to 20 bucks. This entire repair should cost ya around 150 to 175. So if you decide this tv is the one you like then have it fixed. Good Luck
