I had the same problem with a ten year old set when I was trying to connect a satellite receiver and after considering all the possibilities, like processor lockup, overloading the video input with audio, shorting the scart sockets, and of course voltage failure I concluded that the problem was caused by moving the tv so I decided that with nothing else to lose and having sorted out a similar problem with a computer hard disc I lifted the left hand side of the tv by four inches and dropped it. It now works perfectly and as I was actually looking forward to an excuse with my wife for buying a HD wall tv I am a bit fed up as it is still a perfectly working tv,

Ok, I'm not sure if I get this right, but if the telly is ok when you turn it on or change channel from the telly itself, then it may simly be that you need to use the actual number buttons to turn it on from standby.

Sounds like high voltage failure and if the set is about 10 years old it is not worth putting any more money into it

Please my tv with on the standby mode when i try to put it back it couldn't the indicator now goes on and off with picture show please help

The standby light on a Sony television indicates when the television is turned on and operating, or turned off and in "standby" mode. However, this light also serves a secondary function: indicating when there is a problem with the television by flashing. When the standby light begins to flash, there are two reset options that can be performed to resolve whatever issue it's indicating -- a power reset and a factory reset

1. Turn off your TV
  • 2. Unplug the television from the electrical outlet. If you're using a surge protector or power strip, disconnect the television from the strip itself. Only by disconnecting the power cord from the outlet can you ensure no power reaches the TV during the power cycle.
  • 3. Leave the television without power for at least 60 seconds. This gives the television enough time for all components to power down during the power cycle
  • 4. Plug the television back into the electrical outlet. If you're using a surge protector or power strip, plug the television directly into the wall outlet instead. The surge protector may otherwise interfere with the power-up cycle, especially if it is old or damaged.
  • 5. Turn on the television. If the blinking standby light continues, you'll need to move on to the factory reset process.

  • 1. Turn on the television.
  • 2. Press and hold either the "Reset" or up arrow button on the remote control.
  • 3. Press and release the "Power" button on the front of the television, while keeping the "Reset" or up arrow button on the remote depressed.
    4. Release the "Reset" or up arrow button.
    5. Allow the television to reset after the "Reset" message appears on the screen.
    6. Make no adjustments to the television for at least one minute after the reset has completed. This is to allow the television time to finish auto-configuration and initial set up.
    7.Turn off the television and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
    8. Wait ten seconds, then plug the television back into the electrical outlet and turn on the TV.
    9. Follow all on-screen instructions to complete setup. These are the instructions displayed the first time you set up the television, for configuring channels, menu language, time, display properties and more.

    When turning on tv. screen will display Bravia image & then go blank. red light flashes SIX times

    Power off the television. Wait a few minutes, then power it back on. If this does not correct the issue leave the power on, point your remote control towards the Sony television and hold the down arrow button. While holding the down arrow button press the "Power" button. Release the down arrow button and the Sony TVicon1.png will reset itself to factory settings. Once the television performs a scan on itself your problem should be gone.

    TV turns itself off, then on automaticlly

    The fan should run for a few minutes after shut off to cool the lamp down.

    If I read and understand correctly somewhere in the cycle you are getting 5 red blinks? that is an error code........

    Either you or I can Google the model number of the set with 5 blinks.....or visit the Sony site to see what it means.....

    How do you tune Sky+ remote into Sony KDL46W5710 Television

    The Sky+ remote should automatically default to Sony TV's. Leave the batteries out for a few minutes and try again. The Code for Sony is 0000.
    Or try this :-

    With TV and sky box on.
    Press the 'TV' button on the remote.
    Hold down the 'select' and the 'red' button (of the four coloured buttons) together, until the red light on the remote blinks twice. (takes 2 seconds)
    Press the 'TV' button again.
    Now enter four zeros, the red light on the remote should blink twice.
    Press the 'standby' button (top right).
    If the TV turns off, then press 'select' and the light should blink twice again, job done.

    If the TV does not turn off then press 'TV' followed by 'standby' again.
    Alternate pressing 'TV' 'Standby' until the TV turns off.
    When it does, finish by pressing 'Select.
    Check the red light on the remote, if it blinks 3 times, then it has run out of options for 0000.

    Can't turn on

    When you turn the MAIN off you are killing all power to the set---Some advice---If you Google the model number of this set with the word problem after it you should find what I have seen a lot in these sets: they develop bad solder connections on the power supply printed circuit board---usually the board is about 18 inches tall and 12 inches wide--A number of sites online offer to have you ship them the board and they will resolder it for you.
    I have repaired about 12 of these with this problem in the last 2 years---The board has to be removed(there are quite a few plugs that need to be labeled and removed and lots of screws that secure the board in place.)

    Maybe not a job for a do it yourself person but the soldering (if it is your problem) will take about 45 minutes(including removal and installing board back).

    Like most modern sets this set uses lead free solder and it is soldered(the boards) in a wave or one step process---over time from heat and expansion some connections may crack or even break loose----I would look at the POWER SUPPLY board(follow the power cord as it goes right to it)

    Lc-37hv4e. When I switch on my tv the standby button just flashes and willnot swith on. If I switch tv on while holding down the input button and vol- button a menu comes up and after pressing a few...

    it probably just seems that the buttons are doing that. Try pressing the power button a few times. It might be the backlight tubes needing a few start pulses to work.
