Based on your post/description, I would suggest the use of a voltage regulator identical to those used by desktop computer systems. They normally are rated at 500 watts and should be sufficient for your Sony 32 in. LCD which would consuming something like ~130 watts. Additionally, try to get those models that have polarized AC plugs to match your house wiring and that of the Sony. This would also take care of the grounding problems.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The "brightness" of my picture fluctuates every

No problem, it's how plasma tv's function - that fluctuation is caused by the anti-burn technology. In your case it's apparently set on an very aggressive setting so it has become visible - you can change that from the Menu , Setup section.

It takes atleast 3 tries before the 37 in led turns on

A pleasant and good day!

The problem could be the power supply.
That problem is usually happen when the output voltage of the power supply got a voltage drop or fluctuation.

This is the procedure on how to fix that problem:
  1. Remove the back cover of your TV.
  2. Plug-in the power cord of your TV and power it ON to perform a voltage data or voltage check.
  3. Test the output voltage of the power supply.Use a multimeter (DC range) then check the 5vdc for the system and logic supply.
  4. If the 5vdc got a voltage drop when you power ON the TV.There's a leak or bulge on top capacitor on your power supply unit,replace it!

I have sanyo 26", i

if you have an experience in basic electronics trouble shooting you can fix the problem. all you need is to open your TV unit to trouble shoot damage parts, use digital tester. first smell burn parts i'm sure some parts are damaged due to wrong input voltage. then start checking parts at power supply, blown fuse, shorted rectifier diode and damaged capacitors. after you checked suspected parts disconnect all the connectors at the load side of the power supply then try to turn on using 110 v supply, check the output voltage if their is an abnormality. follow the label voltage if constant no fluctuation which can damage the main board.

Sony kv32v15 is dead with no sounds are lights. How difficult is it to replace the power supply / power management components?

since the problem is dead set all you need is open the back cover to trouble shoot, use digital tester. check blown fuse and then power on the unit check the output voltage at power supply panel board which supply the main CRT chassis board. if no output voltage check open fusible resistor its about .1 ohm, then check shorted rectifier diode and transistor sometimes cause by voltage fluctuation. just consider also the horizontal out put transistor it might be shorted cause by over current coming from power supply.

It happened because of Voltage fluctuation so beeter connect a Voltage Controlling device to your Polaroid LCD.
