    same problem on same model. I cannot get it to 'start up' from standby. No sound, no signal at all on the screen. What is up? Thought the remote batteries might be flat, but new batteries didnt solve it. I have amnaual, but I cant locate it so cant try to solve it using any info in that...Any ideas anyone?

How old is this TV?
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, these new technology ones 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.

Tv wont power up Standby light keeps flashing.

First step in any Sony LCD projector repair is bulb or lamp replacement. Fixes 95% of problems.

Taking apart and trying to measure things without a known good bulb is a waste of time and effort.

Whad code do i hse to control my sanyo dp19649 tv

Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. this are the tv codes for sanyo. 542, 589, 590, 591, 592,
609. this is how to reprogram you remote to the sanyo tv. you need to press and hold the tv button that is on the upper portion of the remote, on the right side of the sat button. wait until all mode lights lit up, once all lights lit up, release it and then press number ex.. 542 then followed by the pound button, then you will see that the pound button will flash 3 times, it means that the code is program to the remote. note: while your doing the reprogramming of the remote you need to be in front of the tv about 2 to 3 feet away and the tv should be on.. granting u try all the code and none of them works.. try to scan the code of the tv by pressing and hold the tv button wait until all mode light lit up, then press 500 then pound, tv button will flash 3 times, lets say the last code is 500 and it did not work, press again the tv button and wait until all mode lights up, press on the re tv button if you have, but just incase u have only 1 red button for the power, press it once, then press the up button every 1 sec for 5mins. once the tv turn off then press the pound button and the tv button will flash 3 times, it means that you got the code for the sanyo tv, to check the code: Press the POUND (#) button twice. The mode button
flashes the number for each digit of the device code, with a pause between the groups of flashes. A quick flash is for zero. For example, if the code is 570, the mode button flashes five times, pauses, flashes seven times, pauses, and flashes once quickly... lets say that this remote works before with the sanyo and suddenly it quit working , pls call 1-800-333-3474 and ask for the replacement for the dishnetwork remote, remote is bad. please feel free to get in touch if you have any query..

Tv went off while watching a program power standby red light blinks 6 times then pauses then repeats tried unplugging unit waiting a few minutes then replugged same results nothing. can anyone help me ?...

Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link -

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
