Re: Blank screen with sound

I guess you mean RF input for the dish, then the problem is with the tuner section. Try replacing the tuner, it is not so costly.

Won't turn on - comes on and goes right back off

Is the picture good or is it dull and dark?
A dull aka weak picture tube will cause low beam current and blank the screen. Last set I had do this I turned up the screen control to make it brighter. Use caution and don't turn it up too high were you see vertical retrace lines in the picture.

If the screen won't come on then the diagnostic will never show. The 4 blinks is an error code. If the set is older than 12 years then it doesn't owe you anything, you got your money's worth out of it. Average life of any tv from that genre is 8-12 years. It's time for a new set, or take it in for an expensive repair ( pending parts availability).

Sony KV-27S42 Television won't turn on

NO -the tube will be fine . The TV is in 'protect mode' . THis means that it has shutdown because of an internal fault condition. THis TV needs a technician's love..

Picture doesn't come on

Is your screen black? If so then you may have a bad picture tube. I've seen this problem several times with SONYS. The thing seems to just open up and quit working.
