Question about Sony KD-32FS170 32" TV

2 Answers

Kd-32fs170 Tv not turning on. I shut it off the night before and went to bed, the next morning it did not come on neither with the remote or the power button. I know for sure there was a power outage during the night.when I press the power button you can here it atempt to come on but seem to lack the power. The red light in frunt just keeps blinking. I tried to reset it but it did not work. I have had it less than a year. I did find it strange that before it stopped working,while the tv was on when there was a power outage when the power came back the the tv came on without me putting it on. I have never seen a tv operate that way before so I do not know if that contributed.

Re: kd-32fs170

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

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.

Most probably the IC504 (Sharp PQ05RD21) on A-Board went bad. This model TV, including mine, is notorious for having this problem. The IC is rather easy to find and inexpensive (around $2.50). Your main problem will be desoldering the old one and soldering the new one.

Good Luck.
