Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV

1 Answer

Sony Wega KV-27FS100 RANDOMLY Turns itself ON

The weekend after my dad died last October, our Sony Wega 27" TV in the bedroom started turning itself on in the middle of the night, and around 4 p.m. every day. If turned off (with either the remote or manually) it might stay off for a few minutes, but then turns back on again, requiring us to unplug it. At first, we thought it was amusing, and pretended it was Dad saying "hey", but now it's getting annoying. Any suggestions about what is causing the TV to turn itself on over and over and over? Our Sony is about 4-5 years old now.

You said around 4pm TV is switched on everyday. Check in menu options any on-timer and off-timer is changed. If it is not there is a problem in microprocessor section. EEPROM ic malfunction also shows these type of symptoms. But it can be done by Technical persons only. This is not a major problem. This is due to surge current and lightening like that.

You may have had the sleep mode set itself. Try unplugging the set for 8 hours and let it reset itself to see if problem persists.

Sony KV-27FS100 does not respond to remote

Good day.

Maybe there are loose connections along the IC that supports the operation of your remote. This could also hamper initial set up operation of your unit. Also, check on loose connections along the power supply.

Sounds like you have a short in your set. Probably a shorted horizontal output transistor. You need to have a tech check it out and give you an estimate for repairs. Stargazer
