I have the same problem, can you tell me if yours is fixed yet please. Id like to add that when u plug it in it powers on and timer light comes on but none of the buttons on the front of the tv work unless the picture and sound comes back, which i find if you leave it plugged in long enough happens. I was able to use the this way for a few days, but now dosent work at all.

First plug in again and look at led light, the amount it blinks tells what is wrong. Then if it stays lite it tells something also. You can try Display-channel 5-volume +- Power(service mode). Then Channel 8-enter(test reset). If this doesn't work then you will have to replace somethings like F601, R607, Q601, IC601, R612, VDR601.

Good sound no picture

A older set------look to see if display comes on (channel number or menu) if not someone has to look to see if the filaments in the three picture tubes are lit or not.

Several voltages : High voltage, screen voltage, filament voltage all go to the picture tubes.

Black screen and red timer light is on

It may be the problem of the Dish connection or stablizer. Remove the stablizer and connect the Tv direct to switch board and re connect the dish connection. Then switch on the TV it will work.

When t.v. is turned on, black picture and no sound.

Usually when the fuse blows its due to a component being shorted and if you increase the rating of the fuse you can cause other components in the circuit to blow. The pop you hear was most like a capacitor on the D board. The D board is no longer available from sony as its listed as discontinued. You will most likely have to have a qualified sony service tech trouble shoot the circuits on the D board to locate the short as it will be outside the scope of a do it yourself type of repair

Just a click when plugged in and steady red lite??no flashing or pic or sound

If you are a qualified technician then you can try removing the flyback transformer FBT and have it check thru a flyback checker from any electronic repair shop. You will be able to confirm whether you have a problem in the high voltage section. Which would likely is the case. If FBT is OK look for a shortgae in the horizontal section specially the horizontal output transistor. good luck
