60" 60P8341A TV NO SOUND NO PICTURE-CAN IT BE FIXED? (INEXPENSIVE)

Power button lights up when turned on and blinks when pushing buttons on remote. Remote will also turn off and on but either way has no picture and no sound at all. Is this something I can fix relatively cheap or is it better to buy a new one? I am handy and can find my way around electronics so Im not squeemish with do it yourself type things.

    I am having a similar problem, but when I hit the power switch on the tv or remote, the picture appears just as it is shutting down.

If you are lucky, it's only a blown fuse. Some tv's this large have more than one fuse, so look real hard and find all fuses. If fuses are good, then about 95% of the time, when you have no picture/no sound, the problem is a bad H.O.T. This is a large transistor with three pins soldered into the main board and is very easy to find because it is connected to a metal "heat sink". Look for a large red or black wire coming from the pic tube down to the main circuit board (sometimes it's blue, but it's the only wire coming from the GLASS part of the tube to the board. This wire goes to about the largest component on the board called the "flyback transformer". It is usually black and is about 3 or 4 inches tall, 2 inches wide, and 2 inches thick. The h.o.t. will usually be located in the area of the "flyback". The h.o.t. will be screwed with one screw or clamped onto a large piece of metal (usually silver). This piece of metal is usually about 2 inces square and is about 1/8 of an inch thick and is mounted perpendicular to the main board. Imagine a slice of bread standing on one side rather than lying flat and this is what the heat sink looks like. Sometimes you will see several heat sinks with transistors screwed into them, but the one you are looking for will always be the largest transistor with three pins. Don't forget to unplug the tv before you begin and stay away from the large wire coming out of the tube going to the "flyback". Do NOT unplug this wire from the tube. It can shock you very badly EVEN WITH THE TV OFF FOR SEVERAL DAYS. Just be careful and go ahead and give this a try. You can do it, and this is probably going to fix your set. If not, then replace the flyback transformer. The H.O.T. is about $10 or $15 and the flyback can be from $30 to $80. It is possible that none of this will fix your set, but you have about a 95% chance that it will and with such a big and nice and relatively new set, I would give it a shot. Keever

Sony KV32FS120 Trinitron TV No picture or sound when power button on remote is turned off. Red light at front of TV blinks nine times per cycle.


Hello,

Once your television blinks about 9 times then it means there is a problem somewhere most likely the lamp of the television. Another source of this problem is also a bad capacitor from either the main panel or the power panel.

If your remote turns off actually it is because there is nothing to operate on the television, so once your television starts the blinking light, the remote will not be able to operate the television, once you unplug the television and plug it back then press the power button, the remote will do the same.

Until the television is fixed is when the remote will work normally.

Take care and good luck

Tv doesn't turn on.


Does this have a replacable lamp? If so it will do exactly this. If it does it's probably fried.
