40 inch sony 5 years old that turns itself on.

I have older parents with a set that turns itself on when it is not in use. it has once turned itself off while in use. all batteries of all remotes are new. it happens even if remotes are removed from room. parents had tv repair guys come who could find nothing wrong to fix. one site on the web talked about a 1 ohm resistor in the microprocessor whose values may have changed. any suggestions?

Sony Trinitron color TV 36 inch


You should examine the input power of the TV. If you dare to open the back of the TV You should examine the by using the tester to test the continuity of the voltage input of the TV. i guess voltage regulator need to be tested.

Be careful high voltage inside the TV.

The best way is to contact the vendor of the TV or sony service center in your area.

may this help,

Just reset your tv to factory settings. By doing this all the settings will be set to its orginal factory mode, and you have to reset all the settings including V-Chip settngs. To set it to factory settings do the following.

Switch off the TV wiith its front panel power ON-OFF switch and wait for about 5 minutes.

1 Press POWER to turn on the TV.

2 Hold down RESET on the remote control.

3 Press TV POWER on the TV. (The TV will turn itself off, then back

Sony tv snow for first 5 minutes on

Probably dry solder joints in the tuner section.

When the set warms up, the faulty joint/s make contact, then lose contact again when it cools down.

Black vertical line on right side (intermitant)

Your problem sounds like the stk type regulator.. Itsnot a really expensive part BUT on a set this old yes you can repair it but also your gonna be repairing it more and more as the capacitors are drying up and the circuit is getting brittle. I wouldnt invest anything in this set. time to make a boat anchor out of it!

Sony Trinitron TV will not turn on

First thing that comes to mind is that the horizontal driver transformer has bad solder connections on the primary and the secondary windings. Also a set this old could also have a defective regulator IC if you dont know wht m saying , b=est thing to do is find out how much an estimate is then go back to best buy and see what a new set cost cause man you got your moneys worth outa this one for sure!!!!! Good Luck
