Re: power surge knocked out my pic and sound

The noise you hear is the degausing coil and n Sony TV's they are an indicator that the main fuse is good. Your power supply has no other fuses to replace. they are not easy to troubleshoot.

Sony trinitron model kv 36hs420. t.v. will turn on for a few seconds, then turns off on it's own. (you can hear sound but turns off before picture comes up) Red light on front blinks. This happens if...

I have fixed this problem, on one of these.

It is a voltage regulator, and it probably died after a power outtage or surge,
am I right?

Get it to a fixer guy, Its a very affordable repair.

My Sony kv-32hs240 turns on and after one hour

Sounds like you've got a short in your house electrical lines. Try using a surge protector (AKA power strip) between the power cord and wall outlet. If you've already got a surge protector, try replacing it.

Powersurege damage

Anything can be repaired. But the cost can be a problem. The most commond thing to happen is the power supply gets knocked out (fixable problem), but I have seen the whole tv get knocked (not cost effective) out as well. The only way to find out is to let a repair shop look at it.

Sony kv32fs16 problem

The STANDBY light is flashing on the television and there is no picture or sound. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

No picture and a "whistle"

If your friend is being honest, and why shouldnt he, and the set was knocked over, I'll bet there is now a small crack in the main board. Cracks in boards due to dropping or "knocking over" usually occur next to the flyback transformer or tuner. Cracks in boards are very easy to fix so if you do not have experience working inside TV's then allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

Could be a problem in the shutdown circuit,in the HI Voltage detection circuit,or the flyback transformer. If your not a tech, you shouldnt be experimenting by adding parts as its going to knock you against the wall if it bites you. You should start out with a service manual and check the voiltages as now thinking it could be the power supply voltage regulator also. Please call a pro to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
