Hi there, First off imediatly place a fan as close to the back of the tv as possible. Your tv's powerboard is overheating, placing a fan (regular box fan orso will do) there will help cool the circuit boards in the tv down. This could prolong the tv's life for a while if yo'r in luck (I have a 32" lcd Poloroid that shut off every 3 minutes orso, on 'lifesupport' this way, its working great(Ibuy and repair these, so I'll get to it when I find some spare time). If yours does completely breakdown (wont come on at all), BUT the powerlight is on, then this fix will still work, once the tv goes out and the powerlight DOES NOT light up or blink, the problem is more trickier (for me anyway), ok, here it goes;The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol! Please let me know how this went and if this helped (or not) then please rate, thank you!bravia will not come out of standby (after 8+ - ec15915.jpg

Sony kdl 32w4000. Works ok for 10-15mins, then there's a buzz through the speakers and it switches off with the standby light flashing 8 times


Please try this TV on an alternative power source. It sounds like it is getting either too much or inconsistent power from the plug it is plugged into. I recommend trying a completely different wall, as often times one wall with multiple plugs will be on the same circuit.

Good Luck.

KDL 32S5500 TV When left on standby overnight locks-up, hangs.


There is a Post on the Sony Support site which I hadn't previously found. Basically there is a software bug which has come about apparently due to Freeview transmission changes. In order to stop the the machine locking up disable the 'Automatic System Update' option. A Sony centre will apparently apply a software fix to properly resolve the issue, fine if with warranty period, maybe pricey if not. I will get the fix but haven't yet done so as the workaround of disabling the System Update option works.

Could be anything! From a main board to a power supply. I recommend getting service on it from a authorized sony service center. If standby light doesn't appear at all for any given time, then it maybe the power supply.

52 inch bravia will not turn on. Power LED goes to Standby LED and "blinks" three times.


Firstly, Unplug tv for at least 4 hours. Better yet overnight. This is what we call a Hard or Master Reset.
This should solve your problem. If it doesn't it may be that the set has a bad transformer (high voltage)
