Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV

1 Answer

Sony Trinitron won't turn on most of the time

Our Sony Trinitron Wega will only turn on occasionally. Once we have it on and it is turned off, it has to sit for a long time before we can try again. The standby/timer light flashes nine times and then pauses. I have checked the timer when the TV was on. It is not set. After reading some things online, I assume it needs a repair. Any recommendations?

Our TV is a 36 inch but I am not sure which of the two models it is

    It would appear that Sony has a faulty product because so many people are having the same problem. I have a TV upstairs that We have had for over twenty years. Three years for the SONY should not make it conk out. Maybe we need to start a letter writing campaign to SONY about the problem.

    I have a SONY WEGA Model KV36FS120 which was purchased in December 2004. The stand-by timer blinks and the TV will not come on. A repairman said to unplug it or 24 hours and try again. I'm waiting to see what happens. I've had SONY TV's for years, and they have lasted longer than 3 years! I have been told they don't make them like they used to.

    I also have the same problem. I have had our 36" Sony for around two years and it just started having problems. I cant cut it on with the button or the remote. The red stand by/timer light is blinking continously. I have unplugged it and it still will not work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    The KV-35FS120 Sony WEGA Trinitron Tv is just three years ofd. Has worked fine up until the last month. Became difficult to get it to come on when cold and impossible to turn on once warm and turned off. This has become worse to the point it will not turn on. The flash code counts 9. Unplugged for 24 hours with no improvement. Is Sony handling this obvious design failure or is the customer left to tackle a large repair bill?

    Disappointed with Sony Druability

  • jack_d Feb 16, 2008

    I have a Sony WEGA KV-32HS510 that was purchased in October 2004 and it has recently become difficult to turn it on. For two or three days it took two tries to turn it on successfully. After that it required very many attempts over an hour or two before it succeeded in coming on. Now, the timer light flashes a repeated sequence when it fails to turn on - six flashes then a pause.

Sony Trinitron Wega kv-36fs120 wont turn on, standby/timer LED flashes 9 times.

The relay is in the power supply area. I am sure that the fault is not the relay.

It is very common that there are various components starting to go off spec from age. Most of the failures are in the scan amplifiers and power supply areas.

It is also possible that the CRT emission is too low from age. What happens is that it is on the minimum edge and this explains why the set may turn on some of the time.

When the main uPC in the set sees any potential fault conditions it will go in to a protection mode to prevent damage and to be safe. Your set is probably borderline to operate.

Considering the age of your set, I would be shopping for a new TV set.
