Question about Sony BRAVIA KLV-40U100M 40 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Not Powering Up...Please Help Me!!!

I just purchased this TV a few days ago off of Craigslist. After hooking it up that night and watching it for a few hours I shut it off and went to bed. The next evening I went to turn it on and I got nothing, not even the "Standby" light is lit up. Do TV's have a fuse or what...I'm totally confused!? I plan on taking it to a TV technician soon, unless you have any ideas? Thanks, Brandon.

This may sound silly but check your circut breaker or if you have a GFCI on your outlet because maybe you have too many things plugged into it. Plug a lamp or something into the outlet. If you are sure it is the TV check the owners manual for common troubleshooting. After that I would pursue the warranty; it should be 1 year with this model.

Can I attach an HDMI cable to an old Samsung TV to watch from my computer?

You CAN purchase a converter box to convert digital HDMI to basic analog video and audio, but I counsel against this. Leave the analog TV to be hooked up to other analog devices. Save your money and find a used digital TV selling for cheap or someone might be selling a converter box cheap. You will save money...recycle and support others who do the same. Local Craigslist is a good place to start.

How are you? Good I hope. I recently purchased a Panasonic TH-P50U20A plasma and got a Soniq T500-AU HD Personal Video recorder for Christmas. I already had a Panasonic SC-PT470 DVD Home Theatre Sound...

I'm experiencing this lip synch problem with the T500 too. Not only that, but the soniq firmware upgrade (from their site) doesn't work either. And not only that, but the unit won't record from the EPG, and timer record looks like it is unreliable as well. The frimware file was on their site a few days ago, now I can't find it. They're promising a new website (URL?) soon. I'm none too impressed. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

Darn, that sounds like a time machine!

Whatever it is, though, it's hardly related to the TV if it only shows during movie playback and not in live TV.

I'd look at your player,

I purchased my tv 2 years ago. Watched it

Try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so theTV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply board is the problem. Or, it's just a fuse that blown inside the TV.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Pro Scan On / Off Switch Problem!

Sometimes a power surge or bump will cause the program chip to hang up. If there was no surge or bump, then program chip may be defective. Any case i would return it for another.

After watching HDTV the tv will not switch back on when left for a few hours.

i'm afraid i have no solution for you, but i thought it might help to know that i have the same problem, mine will sometimes take up to half an hour to turn on, while i have to sit and listen to the clicking sound, and watch the power led flash on and off! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! sorry i couldn't help though.

Your problem is a bad matrix drive circuit or a drive connection cable. There are no user replaceable parts inside this set, so Im sorry to say, you are going to need to call in a trained plasma repair person. good luck!
