Re: wont turn on

Hello zang,


This denotes a problem with the switching power supply or the high voltage power supply. what is happening is the safety relay is being actuated by the shutdown circuit. Any number of things can cause this proble but more then likely the problem is in the high voltage power supply section and or its associative circuitry. The switching power supply and the high voltages power supply have very dangerous voltages and I would not suggest that you work on the TV set unless you do have a background in electronics. If you do not I would suggest that you take the TV set to an electronics shop for repairs. If you do have a background in electronics, you will need the following items:


1) A schematic diagram (to know where voltage and signal test points are located and to have a reference of the levels.


2) A multimeter (to measure the DC voltage levels on the TV Set)


3) An oscilloscope (to measuer the AC voltage and signal levels in the TV set and compair them to the values in the schematic)


4) A signal generator (to generate a reference signal for troubleshooting)


I hope this helps,

Red light goes on and off

Needs the button put back into place. Look under the cabinet to see if there is an access panel below the switch, would go for all external controls. There would be a chassis with all the controls mounted to it.
Pull the plug before doing any repairs.
Look to see what it would look like in it's normal position. Something has moved out of place that holds the switch to the panel. Very tedious if you have to remove the whole housing.

I have a Sony Wega KV-34HS420 TV that takes several tries to turn on. When I push the power button or remote power on I hear the normal click and the sound comes on for 3-5 seconds but then I hear a second...

Since the set appears to "recover", it suggests either a poor solder connection or bad cap somewhere in the power supply. The 7 blinks indicate the problem circuit is in the horizontal area. Check the regulator (STRxxxx) IC in the power supply. If you do not have experience working with TVs, please refer this repair to a shop. The regulator IC costs around $25.

Tv wont turn on

I had the same problem and took it apart. Before the repair there was no "click" when I pushed the button, a clue to the problem. The on-off button on the front pushes a weakly made angle piece of plastic inside which had broken. The plastic piece in turn is supposed to push an internal switch which is offset to one side.

I used epoxy (Araldite) to repair the broken plastic angle piece, but it still looks weak to me so I switch the tv off at the wall and leave the on-off button alone (though it does work now).

Opening the case requires some knowledge and care, and can be dangerous. It may void the warranty so be careful or give it to a qualified repair person.

Hope this helps!

Tv wont turn on only clicks and then flashes red timer light

Well, I have found out that the number of red light blinks is a "blink code" that indicates the nature of the fault with the TV. Usually these are various failures of internal fuses or circuit boards. There's a fair amount of information on threads at on this, so try searching there. Teh specific codes and manuals are usually it seems under license from Sony and not available for free to the public. Sorry!

Click and light on front flashes!

This showing the tv have power. Maybe when you pushed the power button it clicks and shuts down then show the red light bliking showing one code. Some shurt on horizontal board or loose some voltage from power supply. This is not easy if you don't have experience with electronic. I'm sorry still tring
