Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS120 32" TV
I have a 1998 Trinitron Sony 32" TV. Was working fine last night. This morning tried to turn it on and no picture or sound. The red stand-by light blinks 4x then pauses and repeats over and over still with no picture. Left off for 12 hrs. and tried again to no avail. Please help. What do you think the problem is and can I fix it myself. Also do you know approx. cost and in your opinion is it even worth spending $ to fix or should I just buy another one.
My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years
old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any
other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that
are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to
get any more life out of it.
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, they are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.

It cant hurt to try...
While I was reading some other post about this problem, one guy said to try using a hairdryer on the right side of the TV for a few minutes to dry out humidity, becuse the trinitron has some kind of feature that causes it to 'protect itself' when too much humidity is in the air.
Hmmmmm sounded silly, but we had nothing to lose and tried it.
Lo and behold, our TV is back on.
