Question about Sylvania SST4322 32" TV

TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture at all

When I press the power button, I hear the TV turn on. What I here is like a relay click, no sound or picture from the TV itself. It will shut off after maybe 5 seconds then turn itself on again. It will do this repeatedly, never do get a picture or sound. Also don't get the sound of the CRT powering up, if you know what I mean. Same problem. I have a Sylvania SST4243. It worked fine last night, turned it off for the night and it started doing this when I turned on today. Can this be fixed? Cost???????? Thanks.

Re: TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture...

As far as fixing goes, you might as well get a new TV... Unless its a LARGE EXPENSIVE HOLY $%^# TV, It will cost more to fix, than to just buy a new one, unless its under warranty, which being an older model as that (or so im reading) It may not be covered.

Try unplugging the TV, and while unplugged, hold down the power button for a full minute (yes, with the plug NOT in the wall) after a minute, plug it back in, and try. Its a hard reset. If it still does not work, and you've tried different outlets, It's probably a repair issue, and you'll need to get someone to fix it, or just junk it :-/

Re: TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture...

I have the same problem with my Olevia 332h. The TV shuts off after 10 seconds. I decided to wedge a desk fan in between the wall and the back of the TV. It worked! The TV doesnt shut off anymore. This problem is obviously heat related. I hope this information helps you.

Flashing Standby/Stero light and No picture.

How good is your picture when it did come ? Is it as good as it once was ? Or is it alittle washed out. If it is washed out the picture tube is weak . Sometimes turning up the screen control alittle would solve problem but if you turn it up too much you would have faint white line running diagonally. Now if you think the picture was good before you this problem video circuit would be your suspect . Jungle IC or something in the RGB circuits . Good luck

So far you have done all you can and you have done everything right. The fact that the TV turned off by itself and then turned back on by itself suggests that one or more solder joints have come loose inside the set. A qualified tech should find this easy to fix, and Sony sets are always worth repairing, so it is now time to have the set serviced by a tech experienced in Sony standard sets.

Picture tube doesn't turn off

The power relay driver or the relay itself is bad. Its sticking closed so the voltage is there for the power supply but the micro has turned off the tuner.
