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.

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.

Magnavox 42 LCD 42mf438b/f7 turns on/off by itself sometimes screen goes blank tv unresponsive to remote

I have exactly the same problem with a Magnavox LCD 42", very similar model 42MF437B/37. I don't have a solution. If you unplug the TV and plug it back it starts working, sometimes for hours, sometimes for less than 5 minutes, before it turns off again. Does anyone have any real solution?

Remote quit comes on and goes off by itself at various times

Sometimes Buttons on remote control "stick" underneath the faceplate. It's possible the on/off button is jammed. A lot of times when a button is jammed the other buttons fail to work.

Could also be the reason you needed to replace the batteries with a button being continously pushed will drain the battery life.

Push every button on the remote and kinda wiggle each button while pushing to possibly see if its stuck.

Hope this helps.

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
