Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS200 27" TV

1 Answer

TV comes on and goes off by itself

The TV will go off for no apparent reason. Sometimes it has to be turned back on with the remote and sometimes it immediately comes back on. The set will also turn itself on in the middle of the night. I have eliminated remote malfunction.

Re: TV comes on and goes off by itself

In order to determine whether it is the TV itself or something in the room that is causing the problem, place an object in front of the infrared eye on the TV. This is usually a transparent red plastic window on the front of the TV somewhere. Verify that it is covered by trying (and hopefully failing) to use the remote. If the TV continues to turn itself on and off, then it is the TVs internal circuitry. If the behavior stops, then it is something in the room. One of the more surprising causes for behavior like this is sunlight hitting rotating ceiling fans -- the light reflects off the fan at just the right frequency to fool the TV. I mention this so you don't limit yourself to only thinking that it must be either the TV or the remote.

Volume pegs to max. Turns itself on. Goes to menu. Intermittent

This is becoz your Internal Remote control response program chip needs to be replaced! You need it to get repaired at nearest service station. Or it may be due to Your keys pressed continously from remote control. Check both the causes! then decide. It will help you!

TV turns off by itself

Thus the line connected to a surge protector or some kind of line protector. This can be consider.

Or if this is a crt type tv. This could be a fault on high voltage section. Horizontal output transistor or flyback. But check also for loose connection/solder crack. That clicking sound may be the relay in action.

hope i give some correct input.

Tv wont stay off

Yes - a new more expensive TV that is not a throw-away model.
The problem is probably in the micro and will continue this intermittently - sometimes hot/cold can have an effect on when it has the problem. It will get worse and it will eventually need to be repaired...
Sorry for the bad news.

Sony TV keeps flipping to Memory Stick screen by itself

My sony HD TV started automatically flipping to the memory stick screen by itself. I thought maybe the remote was malfunctioning so I took the batteries out of the tv's remote as well as the cable boxes remote. Still does it. If I hit the memory stick button on the remote to switch off the screen sometimes it goes back to TV screen and sometimes it doesn't. Eventually, it flips back to the memory stick screen. Is this a known problem for this TV? your problem in system control section check aft &tuning ckt &its voltages check for loose contact in above ckt check tuner thanks
