I have lost the remote for a sony KV32 and the tv is in standby and will not turn on I need to know how to turn the TV on using the control panel on the top

If you unplug the power cord, this should reset the stand by mode and you will have ability to turn off and on by the tv's power button until you can get a remote.

Tv clicks on but no picture yhe stand by light is bliking i have unpluged the tv from wall and the cable box but it justs click when you turn it on no picture could the settings be on

Hi .

The clicks that you hear is an internal device called protection circuit that is shutting down the TV, and forcing the PSU to +5V low only to keep the TV in standby.
That is called protect mode.

If the TV stays in stand-by, with the LED light on, but does not respond to remote, or to the buttons on the chassis, then that means that the TV has gone in protect (safe) mode because an internal fault had been detected.

In that case the TV is usually faulty.

The fuse on the PSU board is not causing protect mode. When the fuse has blown , then the unit stays completely off.

Common faults on rear projection models are Electrolytic capacitors on PSU board (power board), convergence ICs (convergence board). The parts must be tested before replacement. Less common faults could cause the same problem.

Try first disconnecting all connected devices, and leaving the TV disconnected from power for about 30 minutes. To drain power completely.

You cabn follow the basic troubleshooting on this article: Why my TV does not start up and remains in...

If that does not work, contact Sony, ringing the support number listed on the owners manual to get the TV repaired by a licensed technician.

My tv won't turn on, only the standby mode light comes on.

Maybe a bad capacitor. This part is cheap but if you are not experienced in this field I would definitely have a pro fix it.

Standby light stays on and the tv will not go on

Please check batteries in remote that seems not working. Sony TV would either turns On or standby light will blinks if TV gets any internal problem.
You question shows standby light stays On that means TV does not receive power on command from remote.
If standby light is blinking in sequence, let me know how many times it is blinking and also intimate exact model number of TV to find out possible solution.

Sony tv wont turn on, standby light just flashes

I had the same problem guys! This is what I did:

My T.V. wouldn't turn on. The standby light was flashing six times, then four, then seven...I called Sony and they told me to unplug it for a couple of minutes, then try it again...didn't work....BUT, I have found a solution:

Try unpluging your T.V. for 4 hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for me! It's called a "hard reset" by sony. I had my T.V. unplugged for the whole day though.
