Re: Sharp 34" TV

Why shouldn't it be worth fixing? It's only 4 years old, my own TV is 15yo, I fixed it twice but it's still kick'n! You have a problem in the power supply, do you have electronic's know how? And test equipment? Soldering equipment? If so we could walk you through it, If not A repair man should only cost 80 to 100 to fix it.

TV won't stay on. Standby light flashes 5-10 seconds then shuts off. Just before this happened - it turned on , had good sound but the picture never lit up. Now it won't even turn on. I've...

Blinking of standby light in Sony sets are fault indication. You just count the exact number of blinks occur at on instance, say, after you switch On and OFF by its front panel power switch, not by remote control hanset. Just count it atleast 4 times, count it keenly and inform it to me, and let me reach to the nearest falult point; or sometimes to the exact point. OK.

Sony Trinitron KD-28DL10U switched off suddenly to standby mid programme and won't come back on.When trying the remote on I can hear it click on and immedietly off again.Switched off at set and socket and...


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.

TV keeps turning itself on and off, onto standby

I managed to find a local repair man who fixed the problem. He put in a new transformer.

Try unplugging the TV for about 10 minutes and then tunung it on again. Try a factory

To reset the TV to factory settings
Turn the TV on.
2 Hold down on the remote control.
3 Press and release the POWER button on the TV front panel. The TV will turn itself off,
then back on.
4 Release .

I'm assuming step 2 means hold down the power button.

SHARP 29" TV switching off to Standby

have you tried changing the batteries just to elimate this problem

change them

sometimes if the batteries are low in electronic devies, they send a wek signal to its receiver (your tv),

your tv gets confused and then switches itself to standby

if you have changed the batteries and this problem still persists

it can only then be th PSU or power supply unit, take it to your local tv repair shop of mastercare somewhere like that, its going to be cheaper to get it repaired than replacing the whole tv

PSU'S generally 20 to 50 pounds depending on model

don't deo it yourself though unless you've got a capacitor discharger (or a nice 25KV will be on its way to your body)

hop this helps mate, let me know how you get on

TV Switches itself back to standby mode continuously

if your remote is ok then this is due to power supply failure in your tv. either it is loose in oscillator ckt in switching section or it has failed. if not tech person call tech to fix it. not a major problem.
