    Same set, similar problem. When switching on you hear maybe half a second of audio, then it goes into standby. LED flickers between red and green. Have isolated from mains etc with no joy.

    Same set, same problem. When i switch on (at the switch) i hear the usual click that preceeds the picture/sound, but half a second later i hear it click into standby again. Use the remote to switch on and it clicks off again. LED shows green, but every three seconds or so there are two flashes of red.

    I have the same problem. So i bought a repair manual online and it doesn't give much help so thats $20 wasted. It could be an over current protection error. However i really don't know! Looks like another TV for the scrap yard because every company charges extortionate prices to fix it. Ive been quoted £42 to come and look at it and another £42 to bring it back, thats without the parts, engineers time and VAT.

    Hi you guys and gals , You are in good company a I also have this problem. Now after 25 years of fixing intermittent faults, I deserve a little respect. I know very little about TV technology but sony tend to work to a plan, and they are usually very good at this. My Tv was fine working OK. but after I moved it for decorating I found this problem. Now. what did I do to it , I turned it on it's side for easier transport through the doorway. The red led is a warning flag, I assume it has failed the switch on self test !. Now Like your PC it can signal what may be the problem by long - short flashes red or green . I notice some posts mention 7 flashes. So some thing is wrong. we dont know the code to understand exactly what. I will have a quick look inside to see if a plugin card needs re bedding.perhaps it moved when I turned it up?, failing this its down to the recycling for another .. hey ho.

    Same here, Turns on, the lights flashes red/green and then sometimes turns itself off. Cant change the channel or volume. Any button I press on the remote turnsd off the TV, The buttons on the front panel do not work either, have un plugged it from the wall, going to wait until the morning before trying it again.

Rather get a quote first , then you can decide whether you need a new set or not ?
After SONY sets work like dogs especially if you use them alot. Think about a replacement cost ?
I would say get a quote before you decide.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with
troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one
circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hello

In time as the Sony Trinitron ages it begins to have power issues. While this can be true of most tube televisions it's the rate and severity at which this happens to Trinitrons that makes it particularly of note. Many Trinitron owners have complained of the Trinitron set turning itself off randomly and frequently. Some sets have failed to stay on for longer than a few minutes at a time. Eventually some sets will not turn on at all. These problems grow more severe with age.

Check the power cable running from the Sony Trinitron 32. Make sure the cable is completely inserted into the power connection on the rear of the TV as well as the local power outlet.

Disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet, then plug it into a different connection. It is possible to electrical outlet has died, forcing you to obtain a power current from a different source.

Check the cable connection running from the cable/satellite receiver or VCR. If the TV is on but no picture is on the screen, the problem is most likely due to a connection issue.

Power off the cable/satellite receiver, then press the "Video" button on the remote control to switch the Trinitron 32 to the video input signal. Turn on the cable/satellite receiver and the programming now loads onto the television screen.

Turn on tv no picture no sound standby light starts green changes to flashing red


the number of red light flashes indicate where the fault lies...sony error codes are easy enough to find if you google the model with the number of flashes.hope this helps somewhat as you dont say how many blinks!!
regards,steve.
ps.line output transformer failure rates are quite high on these sets,usually resulting in two red blinks-pause-two red blinks-pause etc...

Our set turns itself off by itself. Prior to this happening, it goes to a green screen. It usually happens after the set has been on for a couple of hours. We bought the set in April, 2004 and the warrantly has now expired. The longer we keep the set on, the more it turns itself off. Is this a tuner, on/off problem or the tube? Any estimates for repair?
