Trace the wires from the power supply to the points where they connect on the board and the feed to any components. As you do this look for loose connections or cables that are not properly seated. To be safe, in plug the wire or cable contact and plug it right back in, making it is firmly connected.
I have fixed several issues with the VAIO doing just this when support had no answer.
Should you see and wire that has been pinched or crimped it may need replacing.

The standby light flashes 7 times then pause and repeat.


Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits. Power supply regulator section circuit should be troubleshooted. It is fatal to proceed trouble shooting this section, without proper knowledge in electronics, as if you want to measure the voltages to this section, the TV must be switched ON. When it is switched ON, or powered up; most of the components in this section will be dangerous to touch. If you are not handy, seek tech support. It will be more better.

I have owned a PS3 for 4 years now. I have had no real problems with the system itself. Today, 3/18/10, I was playing NCAA March Madness. The system shutdown in the middle of the game! There was no power...


It sounds like the power supply might be damaged.
Return it to Sony. If it is still under warranty, the repair will be free; otherwise, Sony will charge a flat $150 fee.

Sony 36brx800 shuts off on own


As a TV tech the simple answer is no! If you were a well qualified electronics tech but just not used to TV's then the answer might be a very weak 'maybe' and that's if you had a TV tech talking you thru the whole process on the phone.

shutdown probs can be the power supply, bad solder joints, or also very likely the high voltage power supply. Meaning the area where the TV generates upwards of 30 thousand volts!! The set has overvoltage protection that makes sure that things don't completely fry, catch on fire etc.

Ya really need special training to avoid getting zapped with tazer like volts or worse! Sorry but safety says better stay out of this one!

Won't turn on


Although the other response is in much better technical lingo, it sounds to me like the television had a high voltage arc which I have seen on quite a few of the sony big screens lately. Usually, it causes a part on the circuit board, (one of many that were listed on prev. solver's list) to fail. This causes a delimma for the repairman, because when they find the bad part and replace it, sometimes it will pop again causing repeat failure of boards and/or parts on the board. Sony is known for having bad tubes on their projection sets, and it can be a difficult repair even for a trained tech. I suggest calling a sony service center in your area, and get an accurate estimate before deciding if replacing the set is the best idea. Hope this is helpful input, Russmann.

Sony 36" Trinitron


The power supply section is having trouble.
Common possibilities are:
- High-voltage section (flyback transformer) has failed
(happens sooner or later, about 8 years typical))
- CRT tube has failed overloading the supply
- Power surge has popped the power input circuit.
(Fuse, rectifier diodes, turn-on relay etc)
- One of a hundred of electrolytic capacitors has failed short overloading the supply. They dry out with age, are cheap to replace, but hard to find which one it is.
- Or any of many other possibilities.

In short, you need a experianced tech to troubleshoot this.

Sony tv wont turn on, standby light just flashes


I had the same problem guys! This is what I did:

My T.V. wouldn't turn on. The standby light was flashing six times, then four, then seven...I called Sony and they told me to unplug it for a couple of minutes, then try it again...didn't work....BUT, I have found a solution:

Try unpluging your T.V. for 4 hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for me! It's called a "hard reset" by sony. I had my T.V. unplugged for the whole day though.

Sony Big Screen TV Not Powering On


This looks like a problem with the High Voltage or switching power supply section of the TV set. What you need to do is to measure the voltage from the HV transformer to the Anodes of the CRTs with a high voltage probe, and check the voltage output of the switching power supply. What may have happened is a component may have shorted out causing an over-current condition with is triggering the shutdown circuit (These are the relays you are hearing). I would check the Horizontal Output transistor, and the components in that section of the TV.

In addition check the voltage test points on the HV / Horizontal and switching power supply board. This will determine if the section is working or not (most likely not). Make sure you have a schematic, and multimeter and a high voltage probe.
I hope this helps,
Thank you,
