Question about Sony KV-32FS13 TV

1 Answer

No Picture, no sound, spinning up noise

MY six year old Sony TV will turns on, though has no picture, no sound, and shuts itself off after a couple of seconds. While the tv is on, there is a high pitched, soft, intermittent noise, almost as if something is trying to spin up. The standby light blinks four times.

In the past couple of days, the TV would be on for a while (half hourish), then turn itself off. After unplugging for a minute and replugging, the set worked. This no longer works.

It has been a great set, and I don't feel like it has lived out it expected life! Is it worth fixing? Is it fixable by a fairly tech savey novice?
Thanks for your insight.

The TV started turning itself off occasionally a

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

Tv shut itself off while I was watching.

The power supply will need to be replaced. You can get them for $30 plus dollars and solder them in.

Green screen and distorted picture sound is good but no picture

It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.

Have it service by a qualified person.

RCA TV, model number 32V550T. No picture but sound is fine.


this sometimes is quite simple to fix as it cud be a dry joint on the circuit board where the tube motor sits.

or it cud be the tube is on its way out, which wud be cheaper to buy a new tv rather than have it fixed

TV turned off by itself and now it won't turn back on

If the tv has nothing happening at all when you try and turn it back on including any noise, your power supply is broken. If it is still trying to turn on or does make noise, an internal component has come loose or been knocked off, most likely to your picture tube.
