Question about Flat Panel Televisions
My set is only 2 yrs old, it worked fine, but one day just won't turn on, I don't feel any magnetic force on the screen, the led blinks a few times, but will not turn on, what's wrong?
I have a KV-24FS100 with the same problem. Any help would be appreciated.
We are now having the same problem as above with our Sony Trinitron KV-24fs100 TV, please let me know what we should do. I didnt know if it was something easy to change out or if we should take it some where to get fixed if in fact it is fix able. Thanks
I don't know if this will help anyone else, but I sure hope it will. I had a similar problem with TWO of the three Sony 24" TVs I had bought together. TV#1 konked out a month ago; TV#2 messed up last week. So I called the Sony Service Center, and this very nice guy told me that a lot of times this problem occurs because the TV isn't plugged directly into the wall (most people plug theirs into a power strip/surge protector). When it happened to TV1, we hadn't been using TV2 so we just traded their locations and the "bad" one sat there waiting to be thrown out...and sat and sat and sat. Well, I was pretty hot when it happened again a month later to TV2. The service center guy told me to unplug TV2 and replug it in the wall after about 1 minute and turn it on. Nothing happened. Then he told me to plug in TV1 and turn it on. I did, reluctantly. And it actually worked!! I don't know if anyone having this problem has a week to be without their TV, but the guy said sometimes it takes up to a week of sitting to get it to work right again. So I'm waiting a few more days before I try to plug in TV2 to see if it works again, but for now, at least I've got one TV back. Here's hoping you all have the same experience. And then I guess we'll have to decide whether to plug back into a power strip (mine was actually plugged into my cable TV's DVR machine) or into the wall.

Search for Sony blink codes- the number of times the LED flashes, may even indicate where in the set the problem lies. This is diagnostic device to help qualifie ppl, carry out repair.
In other words flashing power led can indicate almost any problem, it is not a fault, in itself.
The service manual , not the owners manual would tell you which section is at fault, based on the number of blinks. These are model specific.

Turn on Sony WEGA and instead of turning on it goes to standby (red blinking light).
Any help would be tremendous!

I have the same problem for a month. Now TV does not want to turn on at all - indicator repeatedly blinking for 9 times. Sony documentation provide rediculous clue - turn on TV.
Idiots this problem happens when I try to turn it on.
Sony Tech support team has only one solution: plug off and in a minute- plug in, try turn on. Does not work...
If turned on, TV working perfectly.
I paid for the 36'' VEGA trinitron 3.5 years ago $1070 with hope SONY is best one. Wrong - I have problems with SONY equipment more than with any other company.
It is SONY obligation to recall product with such fault.
Can you help.

My set did not come on today when I sat down to watch. Turned on power from remote and nothing. Saw the seven red flashing led lights and decided to check on line. One solution was to put a hair dryer at the power supply. Tried this but nothing happened. Unplugged it and let it set and re-plugged it in after sitting awhile. Still nothing. But the third time proved to be the charm!! Removed tv from the stand, and relocated to the curb outside my house. Never even had to plug it in again and like magic, after about 90 minutes my problem was gone!

I read about plugging it directly into the wall, instead of a power bar, and it worked...this was the second time this happened to my Sony, the first time let it sit a bit, turned off the power bar, played around with plugs and it finally came back...
Hope this helps anyone else.
