I called Sony repair and they said to bring my set in for evaluation. They think it is just the back light. Maybe $300 - $400 to fix. If it is the panel I will scream!

Re: no picture and no sound just a blinking stand by...

I have a Sony KDL40S2000 and three months out of manufacturer warranty my TV made a clicking noise similar to feedback in a bad sound system and went to black screen. The error was not recoverable and four blinking lights were seen by a technician. I bought the extended warranty from my store, so I was covered. After one month in the shop, the technician brought my TV back today and told me the panel was replaced which would have cost me 1000 dollars if I wasn't covered by the store warranty. I read on another site the four flashing lights can mean a bad inverter. I don't know enough about TVs to tell you if the panel and inverter are one in the same, I just know you need to get it repared if you get four blinking lights at a huge cost!

Anything less than 5 blinks is major trouble. More likely vertical IC and circuit failure. Picture has been muted or turned off by TV. If Stand By light was blinking 5 times the Stand By might have came out self-diagnosis function or mode.
Contact Sony Service Tech for service adjustment to fix problem.

Sony KLV-S32A10 32 when i turn on picture come then goes off

If the Standby light is blinking at the front panel of the TV, it seems that there is an internal malfunction occurred in the TV.
I will forward a link to a page where you can get more information and troubleshooting steps for this issue.

Please perform the steps provided on the page. If the issue still persists then service of the TV is required.

I took the base off my Sony KDL40S2000 for wall mount and now I want to put the base back but when I tried it wobbles.. What do I do?

That tv looks similar to mine with the same base.
Have you pushed the stand fully in and tighten the screws fully.

I must admit,they do not seem really stable on those little stands.

How can I put the base back on my tv Sony Bravia KDL40S2000

Lay the TV face down on a flat surface covered with a cloth. Back out all the screws holding the base stand. Hold the back and front against the base shank while tightening all the screws through the base. Make sure they are tight.
