Question about Televison & Video

10 Answers

I have the Sony KD34XBR2, a great TV... Purchased in 2002 and never had any problems UNTIL I was fooling around with the original remote (haven't used in years) and looked at the ilink button. I inadverently hit it and then by mistake hit the power button. Now it won't come on. Just the blinking light, 7 blinks. I hit the up button with hitting the power button, unplugged, let set, etc..... talked to customer support and have an appt for Friday... I am not a patient person... Can you help?

    Once again,,,,,the same problem. I am unsure about voltage? circuits? I am a lay person and trying to avoid the high cost of inhome repair. Isn't there something I can do? Is there a reset button on the back or something? I would look, but it's VERY HEAVY and I am not even 5 feet tall!! It's in my entertainment center... Please, something else I can do?

  • shortymeekba Feb 18, 2009

    Not that I am disputing the first two solutions, but would someone else clafify this? A third person to explain it a little better for me? Thanks.....

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The iLink button and power button simultaneous pressed did not cause the problem, it was just coincidental. The blinking lights indicate that auto-protect mode has been engaged and the 7 blinks refer to an error in the horizontal/high-voltage section.

Unfortunately this type of problem is not an easy user repair. This of course would require opening the Sony TV, familiarity with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVM/VOM and a soldering iron.It would be to your added advantage access to a Service Manual or at the very least a schematic diagram. Repairs would involve working in the high voltage section, continuity checks and voltage measurements. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Factoring in the length of years in service of the Sony, the expected cost of repair, downtime and efforts required to effect a repair, you may want to re-evaluate your options and consider replacing the the TV. Sorry but have to state all the options.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.
It will need a service technician.

The TV is on protection mode because a wrong voltage from main had been detected.

Unplug the TV overnight, so that you drain ower completely, this should fix the problem.

If that does not fix the problem, then the TV has a bad power board that must be replaced.

The 7 blinks indicates a high voltage shutdown. The 33,000V line limit as exceded. Usually this is a problem with the regulator circuit. It is coincidense that the problem occurred at that time. The regulator part is about $25 or so.

    To clear this please turn off the TV for 10 minutes and then switch it on and then do the following


    Clearing is done by going into the service mode (press display then channel then Channel 5 button then  volume plus and then power  button). Press 8 and Enter, which returns everything to the factory preset condition

  • Rylee Smith
    Rylee Smith Feb 18, 2009

    You can try and reset the TV, if its not the hardware issue  it will reset it else its a Harware issue and you need to power supply circuitry. And, that would need a qualified technician.


    So, before goin to tech. try and reset it.


    Thanks

Still getting "Projection lamp is nearing end of life"


KDF46E2000 - Change Lamp Warning - Reset

Bulb is most likely OK. Original bulb in Sony TV is Philips, label on bulb usually says Philips. Sony don't make bulbs. Sony Cost is usually 1.5 times other sources. Many shopping cart operations sell condemned, reject or poor quality electronic service items because cost of return and fooling with them is excessive. This is obvious and widespread with convergence ICs and other parts.

Lamp timer needs reset. This is usually an automatic function. TV detects Increased lamp current from previous failed bulb or weak bulb condition and resets automatically. TV must be unplugged for lamp replacement for this to work. Occasionally it must be reset manually, as below:

1. TV must be in standby mode. (Power off).
2. Press the following buttons on the Remote Commander within a
second of each other:
DISPLAY Channel 5 Volume + POWER .1. Access Service Adjustment Mode and select the Service Menu that
contains the Category with the Adjustment Item you want to change.
2. To change the Category, press 2 or 5 on the Remote Commander.
Note: Pressing 2 or 5 only changes the categories within the
Service Menu displayed. To change a Category on one of the other
Service Menus, press the JUMP button until the correct Service
Menu is displayed.
3. To change the Adjustment Item, press 1 or 4 on the Remote
Commander.
4. To change the Data Value, press 3 or 6 on the Remote
Commander.
Note: To go back to the last saved Data Value, press 0 then ENT
on the Remote Commander to read the memory.
5. To save the changes, press MUTING then ENT to write into
memory.
6. To exit service mode, turn the power off by pressing POWER .
Wait 2 minutes before restarting the set to allow the fans to
completely shut down or the Service Menu will appear on the screen.

You can get the original remote on Ebay. I purchased one for my tv and it works great. Plus it's pink!!!! If I were you I would look there to see if you can get the original one, rather then messing around with universal ones!!!
Good Luck!

Remote does not work for TV


I assume you had new batteries in the original remote and that the Universal remote was programmed correctly for your TV.

Are there any lights on the old remote that flash when you press a button? If so, does it light?

If the TV doesn't respond to a remote, and the remote is verified to be in working order, then the infrared sensor in the TV is defective amd needs replaced.

Good Luck,
