Hi phalbeis, Unfortunately it looks like the power supply has failed, since the unit is new I would check into the return policy of the store you bought it from, if your lucky you can just exchange it. If not it will have to be shipped back to the manufacturer.which can be a hassle, you may have to pay the shipping to the repair facility.
Let me know how it goes and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Hi

There are some factors of this kind of problem.

First you could have a failure in the power supply. Next could be the main board. Lastly you could have a problem with the panel itself, this would mean a new set for sure because the part cost is more than a new set.

However try troubleshooting the problem before spending money on repairing or replacing the television. Possibly you can restore the picture and sound to your television ...

Verify the TV is powered on by pressing the power button on the TV's remote or the front panel of the set. This may seem like an obvious step, but many TVs are equipped with a standby light that will illuminate if the TV is turned off, making it appear that the TV is on when it is not.Cycle through the TV's video inputs to verify that your TV is set to the right one. For instance, if you are attempting to use a digital cable converter box that is plugged into the Video 1 input and the TV is set to a Video 2 input that has nothing plugged into it, the TV will not display any picture or sound and may even say "No signal" on the screen. To cycle through the inputs, use the input selection button, typically labeled "input," "source," "TV/video" or the like.

Re-seat the video and audio input connections to verify a loose cable is not causing the TV's loss of signal. If you have a coaxial cable connected from your wall cable jack directly into the TV, it may have come loose thereby eliminating all picture and sound on the TV. Locate the connection cable or cables of whatever device you are attempting to watch and unplug them from where they plug into the TV. Plug them back in and check for a signal. If there is still no picture or sound at this point, the best option is to contact technical support for further assistance.

The screen is green no color at all it makes aloud humming sound what is the problem we replaced the lamp last year


Do you have a cable box going to the TV and is this condition on all of the inputs or just one. Chances are you have standard video connection plugged into the component inputs.

If you have a (yellow/red/white) cable make sure you have it plugged into a connection on the tv that matches those colors because if you have a standard video (yellow) plugged into the Green then you will get a black and white picture.

If you are plugged into a component connection you will need a total of 5 RCA style wires. One will go from Green to Green, another from Blue to Blue, another from Red video to Red video, anther Red audio to Red audio and white audio to white audio.

The common mistakes made with this connection is the reversal of the RED video and RED audio which will cause the humming noise you spoke of as well.

Thanks,
Robert

Sometimes if you just press on your overscan button on the remote and make the picture a little bigger or smaller the humming noise and freezing of the picture will actually stop.

Green light is on ...white noise sound but no picture


This TV finds the connected input sources
automatically for AV1, AV2 and Component 1-
2. It is presumed that RGB and HDMI/DVI
sources are connected.

Check your setup to see if the audio is turn off but if you have a clear picture you should have sound.

Time to call a TV Tech if you are not going to repair the unit.

Sony KV XA 21M80 Trinitron- HUMMING NOISE AND PICTURE NOT CLEAR


If your set has a humming noise when connecting the cable, call your cable company. There is a ground issue. This can also be a safety issue.

If your signal is PAL, and your TV is NTSC only, you will have to replace the TV with a PAL one in order to properly view the programs.
