Question about Sony KP-53S35 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony KP-53N74 Rear Projection TV won't power up

A transformer was hit by lightning in our back yard a few days ago. At the same time, we lost power to the house and heard our big screen TV "pop" once loudly. After the power came back on, we tried the TV and it does not power up, only makes a faint buzzing noise when plugged in. Is this TV trashed or can it be fixed? Please help. Thanks

I have a Sony rear projection tv KP-57HW40 won't

Follow the power cord (set unplugged) into the set as it goes directly to the main fuse (should be 6.3 amp) and see if it is good or bad.

TV Turns Off On Its Own

Standby light flashing is error sign and shows tv got problem some where in its circuit boards.
You will notice 3 seconds long pause between red standby light flashing so count pause to pause and post how many times it flashing to diagnose problem of tv.

Tv went blank

Does the timer/stand-by light blink at all? If so, count how many times it does. It will usually be in intervals. If it isn't blinking, and you have nothing on the screen, you might have a problem with the "G" Board, part # A1316499A.

Sony KP-51WS510 Shuts itself off

eight blinks means, "High-voltage error" and the probable cause location listed is, "T8005 is faulty (D board)". T8005 is the fly-back transformer assembly.
