Question about Sony KV-27S42 27" TV

1 Answer

Sony KV-27S42 We've had our Sony TV for many years now and this is the first time this has happened. Yesterday evening TV turned off and when we try turning it on, it turns back off...and standby timer red light flashes 4 times. There is no picutre and no audio. We have tried disconnecting from power outage and re-connecting and turning it back on, but no success. Also tried to get screen diagnostic, but the DISPLY, CHANNEL 5, VOLUME DOWN, POWER ON does not work either. Help please!

    I have the same problem but my set is only about 6 years. Is there anything I can do to repair it besides sending to repairman? Thanks.

    My set also blinks 4 times, but it does not power on all the way. You can hear the clicking noise like it wants to turn on but instead it just clicks off still blinking the 4 times.

    The "degause" doesn't seem to work. I get these strange colors encroaching from the sides. No speakers nearby. I love this TV...can't it be fixed? How do we degause it?

If the screen won't come on then the diagnostic will never show. The 4 blinks is an error code. If the set is older than 12 years then it doesn't owe you anything, you got your money's worth out of it. Average life of any tv from that genre is 8-12 years. It's time for a new set, or take it in for an expensive repair ( pending parts availability).

Hello

Blinking of standby light in Sony TVs are fault indications. You just count the exact number of blinks occurs at a time after switch it ON. Switch it ON and OFF by its front panel power switch, and not by the remote control handset. Do this for at least four times, count the number of blinks, confirm and inform me. I can then locate the fault section of your Tv, seometimes even to the exact point of fault too. OK

Happy New Year

Hi - my mom's sony tv - kv-27s42 ---- even after reading the manual I can not stop the closed captions from appearing - can you please help? Thanks! Tony


First, it is a older set.

Second: if the CC is coming from the set you will need the original Sony remote---Look under captions and either turn them off or to something other than CC1.

Third:If some kind of cable or other box is being used to supply signal to the set the CC can be coming from it! Yes, these boxes also have CC settings.

Look at settings in set first and in the box (if you are using one) second.


If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

On older Sony, sometimes a power surge causes the set to be in shut down mode. Try unplugging for 5 minutes and then plug in and try. This many times will fix.

Hello BrianMcL
You are 100% correct, you will need a degaussing coil to take care of this problem. The instructions on how to use it will be included with the degaussing coil.

Blank screen with sound


I guess you mean RF input for the dish, then the problem is with the tuner section. Try replacing the tuner, it is not so costly.

Lost remote control


I have been there with my KV-27S42 and lost the remote. I bought one from Replacement Remotes.com, it doesn't look exactly like the other one (a couple years ago the replacement DID look like the Sony and they must have been threatened) so now it looks a little different but is an equivalet and will solve your problem for $18.

Here's the link:

http://www.replacementremotes.com/store/productdetailp.cfm?productid=1473&categoryid=88

Now my trouble is my KV-27S42 quit working YESTERDAY and I think it's going to cost more than it's worth. May have to abandon Sony because I read about a lot of failures.
