Screen Menu > System > Time > Sleep Timer > TIME

This function automatically shuts off the TV after a preconfigured period of time. You can set the timer up to 180 minutes in 30 minute increments.

How do i fix my sony tv sleep timer it a trinitron

There is a SLEEP button in the remote of Sony trinitrone TV. Press repeatedly until the Tv displays the time in minutes (15,30,45,60 or 90) that you want the TV to remain ON before shutting off automatically. Cancel by pressing until the SLEEP OFF appears.
Hope this will help you.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i set the timer? i use it for my alarm.

Which timer do you want to use? To use the On/Off Timer, press Menu and use the navigation arrows to select Time. Press Enter and navigate (up/down arrows) to select either On Time or Off Time. Press Enter and then use the up/dwon arrows to select Repeat. Select the frequency for the timer function (off, once, everyday etc.) with the left/right arrows. Use both the up/down and left/right arrows to set the time (hour or minute). Press Return to return to the previous menu and Menu to leave the OSD menus. For the On Time, you can also select the input source that will be shown when the TV comes on. (Select Input similarly to the above directions and set the desired channel if the source is TV.) The time must be for this to work (select Time and then Clock then Auto (gets the time from a digital channel) or Manual) and the TV must be in Standby mode for the On Timer to work. The TV will go into standby in two hours after coming on unless a button is pressed on the remote or the TV. The Off timer will override the TV On if they are set for the same time.

The Sleep timer is set in the same Time area or in the (from the remote). Select Sleep time and then the length of time you want the tv to stay on before going to sleep. This is reset when the TV goes off.

The Shut-off time is set in the Time menu as well; select Auto Sleep. When this is on (on/off options), the TV will shut off after 10 minutes without a signal.

I hope this helps.

T.V keeps shutting itself off

it may be due to overheating, ensure proper ventilation, clean the ventilation grill, may be the psu is not functioning properly and being over heated, if the tv starts normally after few mins then its the case of overheating.

I turn on tv shuts off after 30-45min. red lite goes dim

It's likely that the TV will require service since your troubleshooting steps didn't resolve the problem. If your TV is smaller than 30", you may carry it in to the retailer of purchase for repairs. Otherwise, service for your TV can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.
