Sony KV-27S42 Television won't turn on

I have had a 27" Sony KV-27S42 Television (CRT) since 1999. Worked great up until today. We left the TV on while we went to do errands, and when we came back, it was off. When we tried to turn it on, the sound came on for about 2 seconds, no picture, then it turned itself off. Before we go buy another TV, I need to it the tube? Is there anything I can do? I'm sure to get it looked at would be $$$. Thanks!

Re: Sony KV-27S42 Television won't turn on

NO -the tube will be fine . The TV is in 'protect mode' . THis means that it has shutdown because of an internal fault condition. THis TV needs a technician's love..

My TV won't turn on, i replaced the Q502 but works

Sounds like it's drawing too much current from the mains, for one reason or other. On the other hand, it could just be wear and tear.
When you replace those capacitors, see if you can also find a replacement for its initial power transformer-- If its worn out, it could be whats compromising your whole system.
It would be helpful if you uploaded a few pictures as well.

Blank screen with sound

I guess you mean RF input for the dish, then the problem is with the tuner section. Try replacing the tuner, it is not so costly.
