Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS120 32" TV

TV Does Not Turn ON

Aloha!! Home experienced power outage last night. At time of loss of power, I heard a "popping", smelled electrical sparks and got increased background noise on my telephone line.
Today: 1.ComCast Cable replaced the modem for the Cable/Internet/Voix links; 2. QWest replaced a component in their box attached to the house; 3. Brinks (Alarm Co.) has been called for "burn marks" on the circuit board (installed circa 1970); 4. Plumber received electrical shock when securing water shut-off valve (grounding wire not attached to grounding rod) and 5. Electrical company checked the meter and line voltage input to house after "blown" transformers replaced earlier in day. (Old unit had an "anereseum (sp?)" and about 30 homes lost power last night for about eight (8) hours. fyi-----2 PCs and electronic equipment protected by surge protectors (no damage to electronics in home office). When home went "dark" I shut down all light switches, opened the Microwave door and secured all circuit breakers on my 200amp box (So, when power came back on last night, there was no "requirement" for power at by box and my "demand" for power was not until early this morning when I brought power on one CB at a time. Issue----the 36" Sony Trinitron TV will not turn on and there appears no indicator that power is on the unit (backlit switch) when engaging switch. Wall outlet power and DVD player in the immediate vicinity is properly operating. Ques-Do you suspect that the high voltage circuit (or something) got fried and repair is possible!?!??!? (My concern is hauling the unit off the shelf and out the door----It's BIG and BULKY.....est. the weight to be at least 145# and too large to get arms around....definitely a two man operations just to get the unit to the truck/pickup!!) Mahalo!! Bill

Right now I am checking out the fuse!!
Open up the back of the TV case and on the back of the case close to the power code, there is a small fuse that may have blown. I have the black one in my pocket now and will get a new one and check it out.......If this is not the answer, it may be time to hoof it over to the local repair shop;......Done about all a non-technicial can do now and it'll be up to them with the bells/whistles and voltmeters!!

More than likely a burned power supply. The acrid smell is a giveaway for high powered components failing. If it were a conventional CRT type screen, I would suspect the flyback transformer, but LED/LCD type screens will eat a power supply if it has the slightest defect in manufacturing.

Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.

No Power to my TV after power outage

A lot of times its simply a fuse that goes out. Either way someone is going to have to open it up and inspect the fuses first. It 's a fairly inexpensive service call.

Hopefully the fuse took the hit from the storm.

I had a power outage!

Hi there!

Power outages and lightning are the main causes of Electronic failure. It has obviously affected your TV and will need to be seen to by a repair technician if you are not skilled to do so. Regards and good luck, JUS004

32 in sanyo tv

If the TV is less than one year old, I would suggest to call the place where you bought it from and ask them for an authorized repair centre.
The TV should be still covered under manufacturers warranty.

Where exactly are the sparks coming from? If you remove the back of the TV, can you see exactly where the sparks are coming from?
