So while I was away, our KV-32FS13 went out. My wife tells me that the TV was turning off by itself. She kept turning it back on and eventually it would no longer turn back on. She said the last time it shut off, she could smell something (I'm guessing electical burn) and she then unplugged it. I opened it today and the fuse is OK. When I try to turn it on, I get absolutely nothing. (No red light, no noises, nothing) I tried turning it on with the remote, but same thing.
Any ideas on what I could try? Any idea on what parts might cost?

This problem is caused by a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor. I would suggest that you have this TV checked by a qualified TV technician. This type of problem requires dealing with dangerous voltages, and repair should only be attempted by a trained technician.
The 4 blinks usually mean a vertical deflection problem. If you can solder you should be able to repair this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll provide more details and instructions.
The tech is wright about the deflection board having a fault. This failure is found in the vertical deflection circuitry. The quote is the one that seems to be a bit high, instead of getting this TV fix; I would save that money to buy another TV. Good Luck.
Jar-Head, bad news, the picture tube has a mild short in the green cathode, tech can come out and try to restore it but it`s usually a futile attempt on sony tubes, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, BMW Rider
