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?

    Hi We bought a Sony Bravia 40" 2 1/2 years ago. Model # KDL40EX400. After about 14 months we started to experience something very bizarre. The TV would turn itself off. No lights on the screen. Af

    At some point you have to cut your losses, this is the reason I suggest getting an extended warranty with coverage (including the maker) of 3 years, 80 of the 140 sets in our shop are less than 3 years old, if this set had that they would have to fix or replace the set----One reason I choose to answer your question (I do this here for free) is this set ought to have a error buffer, when set fails it will count the event and that also indicates where the issue is.

    Most of the Sony sets for the last decade with set off and using the Sony remote: Display, 5, vol down, and POWER will if set comes on bring up a display with a number of shortened items listed----they should all if the set has this be a zero. Any with a number indicates a issue and the number indicates the number of times this event has happened.

    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
