When i turn on my tv it will automatically turn off by itself after 30 seconds.


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

When I turn on my Sony TV, ti stays on about 30 seconds then shuts off, What do you think is wrong?


Do a Power Reset.
1. Turn off TV.
2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. (If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.)
5. Turn on the TV.
If issue persists after doing the steps, reset the TV to factory default settings.
1. Turn on the TV.
2. Using the supplied remote, press and hold the UP arrow button.
3. While holding the UP arrow button press the POWER button on the TV itself.
4. When the TV goes off, release the POWER and UP arrow button.
5. The TV will turn on by itself and the initial setup screen will be displayed. Just follow the on-screen prompts to finish the setup.

No picture light blinking


We recommend you remove all HDMI cables from the TV then unplug the unit's power cord for 30 seconds. Then plug the power cord directly into the wall. If the problem persists we recommend you have the TV evaluated by an authorized service center.

TV switched itself off. Standby light flashing on and off once then five rapid flashes. Tv would come on but then turn off again after a few seconds.Standby light even stayed on when tv switched off at...


Subject

Unable to Power On or Off the set

Symptoms / Customer Description
The symptom may occur while the TV is ON or in Standby.

1) If the problem occurs while the TV is in Standby:
The TV will not turn on via the remote or power button located on the set however after AC reset (i.e. unplug the TV for at least 30 seconds from the AC source) the TV returns to normal operation.

2) If the problem occurs while the TV is in use:
You may lose the ability to power off the TV or switch the video inputs however channel changing, adjusting volume, or accessing the menu may still be possible. After AC reset (i.e. unplug the TV for at least 30 seconds from the AC source) the TV returns to normal operation.

Sony has designed the BRAVIA Televisions to be CUSTOMER Software Upgradeable and therefore Sony will not pay a service claim on any issue resolved by a software upgrade. If a customer requests an update please refer them to the following website: http://www.updatemytv.com. If the unit requires the update, you may enter the customer's information in the website and a USB device will be sent to their address.
If a customer does not have access to the web please have them call the Sony Call Center Support line: 1-866-210-6333

If a customer reports either symptom above request that they unplug the set from the AC wall outlet for at least 30 seconds and then plug the set back in. This will reset the TV and it should work fine for several months. If resetting the TV does not resolve the issue the customer has a different problem and a service call by a technician may be required

Simple power outage and I get no signal or internet connection.No lights on router.


First, the obvious: If the router is directly plugged into a wall jack, make sure the breaker for that outlet isn't tripped. If the router is plugged into a power strip or UPS try shutting these off and resetting them.

As to the router itself: Unplug the router from the wall jack/power strip/UPS for a minimum of 30 seconds. Make sure the modem you are linked to has been rebooted and then plug in the router power. It should reboot itself.

If it still fails to do so, I suggest you contact Linksys for further troubleshooting.
