Post Storm Problem

Good Morning, I have a Sony XBR Triniton, about 7 years old. We had an electrical storm last night and the power went off and on several times. This morning the TV won't come on, just the standby light flickers. Any Hope?

We have a 19'' Magnavox T.V. its about 4 yrs old and it was working great up until yesterday. Went to turn it on and nothing, no sound,picture nothing! There was a bad storm the night before last and we...

well 4 year Tv's are just that now and unless its Digital it may not be worth the money to repair. Lightning spikes have killed off the ppwer supply box inside. The cost of replacement is $100-$150 ( if you can get one for this model) + 2 hrs minimum fitting at $90 hour. + your transport of this to a repairer.So it may be time to see that your next and new TV is connected to an anti spike power board and when not in use or a storm is imminent unplug it anyway

Sony Trinitron won't power up

if the power went out all that may be bad is the fuse; follow the power cord inside the set and it will take you right to the glass fuse; these sets also had problems where the power supply in them fails--several parts get killed instantly--if this is the case---good advice would be to look for a new tv.

Sony Trinitron XBR, Stand By Mode?

The 6 or 7 blinks usually indicate a problem in the horizontal circuit. Since the TV recovered once, the problem is most likely to be a bad solder connection in that area. If you can solder, resolder any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. That may resolve the problem. If not, update this and we'll look elsewhere for defective parts.

TV will not come on.

The 7 blinks indicate a high voltage shutdown (high voltage exceeded 33,000V). This is usually caused by a defective regulator. Could you please post the exact model number (KVxxx) and I'll look up the part you will likely need?

No Power to my TV after power outage

A lot of times its simply a fuse that goes out. Either way someone is going to have to open it up and inspect the fuses first. It 's a fairly inexpensive service call.

Hopefully the fuse took the hit from the storm.
