Have you tried running power to the TV through a different extension cord from a different power socket?
With any luck, the power strip you are using is just defective or had been damaged by a power surge, but that the TV has not been damaged in any way.
Plugging the TV in somewhere else will help you determine this.

Unplug the power cord from your TV. Wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in. Plug the power cord into a different power outlet or power strip. If possible, try a different TV power cord.

Sony KDL 46HX820 turns on, then off and red light blinks four times.

Re: Bravia KDL46EX720. Red LED blinks 4 times and TV wont turn on. What is the problem?

Do a Power Reset.

1. Turn off the TV.
2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. (If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.)
5. Turn on the TV.

If the issue still persists after performing power reset, that may be an indication that the TV needs service. You may refer to this link to locate the nearest Sony authorized service center in your area.

Can't turn my tv on. Have been away for ten days and now tv wont turn on with either remote or using on/off buttton on the side of tv.

The only suggestion I would have is to double check your power to the TV meaning if its plugged in completely in the back of tv to the wall, and if to a power strip that the power strip is turned on. If all the above are done but not recieving power to the power strip make sure the surge or safety wasnt tripped. If its not tripped and no power check your main fuses and the fuse in the power strip.

Tv shut off, and wont turn on. It flashes when you press the power button. NO clue at what is wrong.

is the tv on a power strip? unplug the tv from the power strip or wall outlet wait one minute then plug back into the wall outlet and not a power strip. TV should power back on.

Loud Music causes no picture

A solder must have fried out on the board. A red blinking power light indicates a fault somewhere. It wont let it turn back on to reduce further damage. If your good with a solder iron, take a looksie and search for a broken solder somewhere on the boards....dang! what were you jammin`? lol...

Play tapes through TV

Sure - on the left side of the camera just below the tiny speaker, is a plug marked "audio/video" it's well hidden under the rubber strip and all you must do is just lift it up and there it is. A popular plug fits the hole and gives you audio and video out. Connect this to the audio and video plugs on your TV and set TV to "aux" and you in.
Radio shack and you dealers have a RF converter that you could plug into and has an output on chan 3/4 on your TV. Enjoy. I do.
