Re: tv went dead while viewing, will not power back up

You have a short somewhere in the load for the power supply. Probably the horizontal output transistor and the flyback transformer. You need to have it checked out by a tech. You may want to get an estimate. Stargazer

We have a Sony KV-35V36 TV. Will watching TV and the power just went off. We get no power all all anymore. How do you ge the the fuse on this TV.

The fuse is inside the chassis and likely soldered. Unplug the TV, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, repeat. Plug it back in and see if that has reset it.
Is the outlet good, or did the power outage trip the breaker?

Screen is cutting off the sides

That is an ITC008 chassis and the problem you're referring to is called a breathing picture. One fault I am aware of in this chassis/model is the connector Bl103. I have seen a couple where the connector failed and had to be replaced. Could open it up and locate the conntector and see if it's vibration sensitive.

Sony kv27s15 just went dead, how to fix it?

We just experienced the same thing. My daughter was watching TV and it went dead. We could not get it to turn back on. I'm guessing that this model Sony TV had a 13 year life expectancy. I offered it to a local technician who refurbs and sells TVs, and he wasn't interested. He said he doesn't mess with anything over 10 years old because it's too hard to sell. We just went ahead and bought a new LCD HDTV. It's a shame though. If someone were able to fix the old TV, I'm sure a nursing home or non-profit facility could use it. Our only other option is to pay $15 to have it recycled.
