Re: No picture or auido.

Place your ear near the back of the tv and have someone turn the unit on. If the following occur :

a.) If you hear a high pitched whining sound and the fan trying to start but the unit fails to start and goes all quiet it could be a bulb issue. (see owners manual for trouble shooting code of blinking power light in front of tv)

b.) you hear nothing. It may be that the power supply for the unit has failed or its fail safe fuse has tripped. ( call tech this one needs a pro to sort out )

c.) seems like its trying to restart itself but does not quite make it. ( its a bulb issue check owners manual )

How doi reset the picture after replacing the bulb and housing


It is not required to set the Picture after replacing the Lamp and Housing. To change the Picture Settings press the MENU button on the Remote, highlight PICTURE and press OK. There you'll get the option to select Picture Preset Mode, Picture Settings, Screen Format, Advanced Picture and Screen Adjust mode. You can customize the settings by selecting the each Picture Menu options.
Click here to download the manual of the TV. View page # 39 for the instructions to change the Picture Menu.

Good Luck!

No picture in a picture

The picture for picture-in-a-picture must come from somewhere. Try a DVD for the picture in picture. It may be the second tuner for the picture in picture that has failed.

This is a Heat issue with the front sensor of the TV. Dust and Dirt block the sensor causing it to heat up faster and faster. Cleaning the lamp is extremely easy and it will get the TV working again, at least for a short while and then it will happen again. I know cause its been happening to me and it will work for about two weeks and start happening again. Sony actually has a class action lawsuit against them for this issue. Long story short here are the steps to correct the issue:
1. power down TV and disconnect from the power outlet then let sit for 30 minutes until its colled down 2. On the bottom corners of the TV (Back side) you will find a round screw that you can loosen with your fingers 3. once both screws are lose the front bottom part of the TV will pull off, there are magnets there so it will hold it in place temporarily. 4. Once the cover is removed, in the center of the TV will be a little door with another Finger screw to loosen, once off move the bar holding the door closed and remove the plate. 5. You will need an Alan wrench, the screw will be in the upper left corner, when this is loosened the screw will not fall out and you can pull out the Light fixture 6. CAREFULLY with compressed air spray the light assembly and the inside of the TV very well and then replace the light bulb. 7. Put the Door back on the front of the Light area, and assemble the rest of the TV in reverse order before testing the TV. I have done this multiple times as this is not a permanent fix but does restore life for a short period of time.

Screen goes black and whte and freezes

Does it do it on all connections IE: DVD, Cabe, VCR? if it does than most likely a bad digital board in the TV. If only on one connection you see this then suspect intermittent connections to that device or a bad cable.

Static in audio output, even when mute button is pressed you can hear static in the background sometimes. The static is not always present continuously.

that can be a tuff fix , you gota tap
around the tuner mod and the auido

Screen Flashing

In a Sony TV, the most common cause of the picture flashing on and off is a weak picture tube. When the set was new, it took about 5 to 10 seconds for the picture to appear once the set was turned on. This is normal. If you have been noticing that it has been taking longer and longer to first appear, this is the clear signal that one of the picture tubes is getting tired. There is a circuit called IK Blanking that monitors each picture tube and adjusts them as the tubes age, so you always see a good picture. When one of the tubes has weakened so much that it cannot produce enough brightness in the picture, the circuit shuts the picture off completely. I guess Sony does not want you to see a tired, dull picture. When the tube is right on the edge of being too weak to keep the picture on, the picture will flash on and off, and it will also take much longer beofre it first turns on. The good news is that the Sony picture tubes always respond beautifully to reactivation (CRT Recharge) but you will need a qualified tech familiar with Sony projection sets to handle that repair for you.
