Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

TV shut off while on and wont turn back on,.. at all.

My wife and I were watching a movie and the TV just shut off. Now it will not turn on. No light blinking that I've noticed, no nothing. Very very disappointing. We bought this TV less than 6 months ago and are way too poor to get another TV, and feel kind of ripped off about this one. Please help us poor folk out!.

    No warranty sadly. Don't have enough cash to buy our electronics from any store that gives warranties,.... Mainly pawn shops and craigslist.

    By the way, the TV is a Sony Trinitron KV35s26. Which for some reason wasn't on the list of Trinitron TVs on this site,... weird,...

    There are no blinking lights I have seen,...

    What would be shot on it exactly? I would venture to guess that something to do with the power supply has been screwed up, and would think that wouldn't be too expensive,.. I just want to know what having to do with the power is the most likely culprit.

    Thanks. I appreciate it. I'm right about to start calling Sony & repair shops.

    I will give you a better rating, and do very much appreciate you sticking with me this long. The reason I didn't right away was because I was seeing the rating system as what I should use for how much the answer actually helped/improved my situation, which was not by much, sadly. If I would have thought to use it for rating how much someone stuck with me and tried, and responded with some depth and responded often, then I would have. My apologies

    Thanks again,

How long of a waranty does the TV have? If it is still covered I would contact the Manufactures about the problem.

    does any lights on the front of the TV blink at all? if sao i might have found a website that will explain the blinking green light.

  • Thomas Dec 18, 2008

    i really hate to tell you this but i think the TV is shot but some one else might be able to help you. hope you can get it fixed.

  • Thomas Dec 18, 2008

    well from what i have noticed from searching the web alot of people are having trouble with their sony TVs that are like yours and it seems to be in the same trouble area your having. The only thing i can suggest is calling sony themselves and explaining the problem to them and hopefully they can help you, otherwise i dont have anyomre ideas for you. i think that there is a problem with the power supply some where but with out having the tv in front of me, i couldn't tell where. good luck and thank for using

Tv shut down wont go back on

This sounds like a problem with the power supply. Usually capacitors on the power supply board tend to dome, bulge,or dry up. The damaged ones can be seen on the power supply circuit board when the back is removed. The dry ones have to be removed and tested. The caps can be replaced at a repair shop for around $200, but if the power supply board has to be replaced it can cost a little more. It all depends on the shops repair fees.

power in the tv has nothing related with the DVD. The tv has to have raster (white screen) even without signal (cable, DVD, others) if the tv alone is just having the led flashing and neither sound nor video (black screen) The tv has a short circuit in some of the boards that are part of the tv system. the blinking is part of a protection when the tv was created in the factory. Refer to the technician to repair this problem.
