Re: tv will not turn on but makes a beeping sound

Sounds like a capacitor in one of the power supplies exploded either in your high voltage horizontal power supply or the main power supply. If you don't mind taking off the back cover you actually might be able to find this capacitor it will have a huge hole in it.

Capacitors tend to dry out after about 5-6 years and can explode just like yours has.

Turned the tv on this afternoon and it made a loud sound and now the tv want turn on and is making a beeping sound . Is there a reset button or another solution

That beeping sound is notice that something blew. The reset is on the circuit board inside but if you reset it before fixing the problem then it will likely just flip again - safety/annoyance feature.

Two beeps can be considered as two blinks. Blinks of standby light in Sony TVs are fault indications. Visit the site linked below to know more about the blinking codes and fault locations to Sony TVs. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link.

Tv will not turn on. when plugged in there is a beep beep beep.

does it back up while beeping? just kidding - what does the power light on the tv do after you try to turn it on do you hear sound at all? have you tried changing inputs (do you get video on any input) does you see a picture n the tv at all if so is the picture really dark - need a little more info to get you in the right area - probably a power supply or inverter board problem to be honestly with you.

32 RCA makes popping sounds

It needs a new FLY BACK transformer. That is what you are looking at. The origionals are not made for the set any longer but insist on having a generic on installed by a local TV shop. I just put one into a RCA 31" and it works nice. Don't throw away the TV. Get it fixed. MAKE SURE YOU INSIST THEY USE THE GENERIC ONE! THEY DO WORK!
