Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32HS500 32" TV
Same TV, same problem, SONY TRINITRON KV32HS500...won't turn on...stand by light blinking 7 times...it turned on eventually and then after turned off wouldn't do it for weeks...yadda yadda...it's been weeks!! since the last time. I've done EVERITHYNG in the book, I started by calling Sony and after following their steps nothing happend. I even asked(after hearing others with the same issue) if this TV had a recall or a manufacture deffect, of course they said NO, which after reading ALL this postings I find very hard to beleive...I called 3 repair centers, 2 Sony authorized, and one local. The estimate price is anywhere between $300+ to $600+, depending upon the "flyback" or "conection board" needing only a repair or a replacement...Now, is this worth the money, time and effort???? after reading that some people had gone through that route only to have the SAME problem later and be out few hundreds $$,I conclude it is NOT. The warranty for this repair is only up to 90 days best case scenario...I appreciate if the people form FIXYA, had an input, but honestly in my case this is just for venting. It is a shame that SONY doesn't own up to their products when is clear that this is a manufacture problem or al least,just a aweful quality product...I just wanted to thank you for your postings, beacuse today I decided NOT to repair this "art work", you saved me few hundred bucks and more frustration. One thing is clear though, I will NEVER buy another SONY PRODUCT....feewwww I feel better now!!

I also have a Sony KV-32HS500 that has been suffering from the now synonymous five years = dead TV syndrome.
It first appeared around a week ago with the TV requiring attempts to turn on with standby light blinking 7 times in between, but would remain on once started. As mentioned the Sony sight is embarrassingly sparse with any real information about a remedy. Has anybody approached Sony customer service with any of this?

I agee, I am sure there is a problem with a component failure on the D board.It is to bad there has not been a re-call, but not surpising, the bottom line is just to important for that kind or customer service...........

If the seven flashes are repeating, it means "Horizontal Deflection
Stopped". The horizontal deflection circuitry is on the D board.
as far as sony as a company when i was a service center there was not a company that even came close to there help in getting help and getting parts, all companys have problems with failing parts and just like car i would never purchase the first model year! wait a few years to get the bugs and problems resolved. if Sony finds enough problems with a set they usually do a recall. or fix.

I have this problem too right now.. what I did is disconnect the tv from the surge protector for 2 days then reconnected directly to wall. and it turned on! I will just leave tv on until I can afford to buy a new tv set. If I ever have to turn it off and turn it back on. i know this has worked twice already!

I had the same problem-- for the first time-- today. I immediately Googled the issue, and found this website posting. I may be more fortunate than others... I simply waited about 10 minutes, and tried the power button again... and the TV came on this time!!! Weird, but just wanted to post this in case it helps others. Let the TV rest then try again later before you get overly-concerned.
