If you have tried unplugging the unit and still does not work. There is a update that needs to be done to your unit to keep from locking up the unit. Whats happening is that the pull up circuit is too slow which is whats locking up your unit . by adding a resistor and lifting a pin on the mirco to solder the other end of the resistor two it will take care of this problem..once this is done it takes care of all lock up problems.If you can work with microprocessors and do real fine soldering i can email you the fix. If you can have a service company take care of this for you as it is a really delicate repair.

How to fix up d5/5 and remove disc

I am not sure about the d5/5 error but you should be able to eject the disc by performing the following, which I took from my user manual.

Turn off the unit. Press and hold the [ >>/>>' ] and [ OPEN/CLOSE ] on the main unit at the same time for about 5 seconds.

Hope that helps.

Stuck in standby

You can reset all to factory settings, which may help; unplug power, put back in switch on with power button. Then press together "tape", "CD" and the power button. You may need to reset the clock before it will work. If you need the manual, here is the link; check page 26 for the reset if not clear - nothing else in there that seems to be related, but you may find something i missed. Hope this helps :)

The thermometer has stopped working. It stuck on -30 degrees.Please inform me how to reset it. Thank you Paul

You can't RESET IT. You need a new ambient temperture sensor and a re-flash from the dealer or a shop that you know that has a factory scanner.

Sony KV-32S26 32" TV press switch on button, three flashes ticks and off again...?!

Paul first off, how much experience or training have you had repairing tvs?? None?? Ok Paul, theres Hi- voltage and X-ray radiation issues that you must know to work on these sets because of the hi voltage these sets store inside them EVEN when they are unplugged. Now its great you wanna fix this your self. But Paul, These sets have no user serviceable parts inside them that you can test such as tubes. Everything is soldered in and most of the time you can't just see something thats bad. You need special test equipment to trouble shoot these solid state sets. Now if you are a tech then the first thing I would check would be the horizontal output transistor. If thats shorted, then order that as well as a flyback transformer to replace at the same time.. If the transistor was'ent shorted then I would look at the solder connections on the horizontal driver transformer and see if a drive waveform was getting to the base of the horizontal output transistor. Then if all this looked good I would look at my switching power supply to see if the voltages were being loaded down when the set was being turned on. Paul do you see my point??? Good. Please pay for the est., as its better then getting your self killed over a few bucks!!! Good luck
