Re: will not turn on

  • as the power flickered at your house so most probably due to fluctuation fuse must have gone.
  •  & it that found to be ok then there is a possibily that output transistor  must have failed.
  • though it is not major but if you are not aware of high voltage plz take the help of tech person.
  • hope this will help
  • good luck.

Loud pop from surge protector that results in intermittent sound on Samsung 46" tv

I hope the surge protector is separate from your TV. It has Varistors in it that are supposed to pass overvoltage surges (it can happen without the power going out) then recover to normal. But sometimes they overheat, then they can become a fire hazard. Or the contacts in the sockets can get charred and flakey. Anyway sounds like it is fried, the only easy solution is replace it. A careful tinkerer with a good scrounge box could fix it, if you know anybody like that.

My Sony kv-32hs240 turns on and after one hour

Sounds like you've got a short in your house electrical lines. Try using a surge protector (AKA power strip) between the power cord and wall outlet. If you've already got a surge protector, try replacing it.

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.

Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

I hope it was plugged into a Surge Protector!!!!..

If not, make sure ALL your Breaker Switches are on in the house, RESET THE SURGE PROTECTOR (power bar thingy you got the tv plugged into..).... they will switch off usually to protect the tv...

TV Zoom mode

Change the batteries on the remote, point the remote at the Sony, and hold in the power button for 5-7 seconds. Then depress and re-press the power button - see if you can get the tv remote to respond again.

Then, always try the quick reset:
How to perform a power reset on a Sony® television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

The TV and Cable box both continue to shut down; Please Help!!!

Do you mean that the TV shuts off and the cable box also shuts off? Is the TV plugged into the back of the cable box? This sounds to me as if the cable box is defective and the TV is plugged into the cable box instead of the power strip. To prove whether or not the cable box is defective, plug the cable directly into the TV, plug the TV directly into the wall outlet and watch one of the lower channels. If the TV acts up and shuts off, have the TV serviced. If the TV plays fine, replace the cable box.
