Have to hit the on button several times before it turns on. each day it takes a few more times before it comes on. works fine once it is on.

tried to check the power on button with a analog tester weather the resistance doesn't have good contact. otherwise you must replace it.

Sony KV32FS120 Trinitron TV No picture or sound when power button on remote is turned off. Red light at front of TV blinks nine times per cycle.


Once your television blinks about 9 times then it means there is a problem somewhere most likely the lamp of the television. Another source of this problem is also a bad capacitor from either the main panel or the power panel.

If your remote turns off actually it is because there is nothing to operate on the television, so once your television starts the blinking light, the remote will not be able to operate the television, once you unplug the television and plug it back then press the power button, the remote will do the same.

Until the television is fixed is when the remote will work normally.

Take care and good luck

Our television is about 11 or 12 years old. It

your problem is more likely to be in the high voltage fly-back transformer or HV tripler supplying high voltages to the anodes to your picture tubes these voltages range from about 20 to 40 thousand volts, replacing these components are relatively reasonable in price and depending on where you live will cost no more than about 300 dollars

Your convergence amplifiers are begining to malfunction. This is not expensive However I would advise that you get a qualified TV technician to work on the set due to a chance of damaging you TV if you install the amplifiers incorrectly.

I hope this helps

My estes Astrovision rocket will not seem to take pictures/videos

You have to make sure that you don't turn the power off from the time you record to the time you download onto the computer. If you turn it off, it automatically deletes what you recorded.

Sounds like you hit the PIP (picture in picture) button on the remote. Hit it a few more times and it should go away.
