From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). This could have happened during the moving process. The sound comes from the flyback unit. I guess it must be a high pitched squeal, actually...

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,

Since the set is new, it may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise. Many shops are hurting for work because so many of the smaller sets are never repaired anymore; they are just thrown out and replaced since the cost of a new set is sometimes as low as the repair expense.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Blinking standy light

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Sony Bravia KDL52W300052" flat screen -- blinking standy light 13 times...... This better not be expensive! I think it's a recall item.

Hi there! I think this will be a job for a repairer. The Amount of times the LED flashes will normally determine what the actual cause may be. There is no indication in the service manual for 13 flashes unless you have more than 1 fault. Check for pauses between flashes. It may flash 6 times and then 7 times to get to 13 which will mean 2 Errors. Check these out first and then decide. It will still require a skilled repairer to fix this fault. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

Standby light blinks 13 times

13 blinks is backlight error.. can be 1 of 2 things, 1st bad inverter board (on left side panel looking from back) it has several plug ins to the panel as it supplies voltage to the backlights.2nd could be panel itself as backlights are built into it they can't be replaced. Inverter is probably around $200 +labor, panel= buy new tv... they are outrageously expensive. Good luck!

Sony Trinitron Won't Turn Back On. Standy light blinks continuously.

could be any number of things ranging from the power supply regulator to the vertical chip audio chip or even the flyback transformer. Definately not an easy fix and would definately be over $200. The flyback alone original from Sony would probably amount to that .

I have the sony trintron wega 32 hs 500

Seven blinks indicates a high voltage shutdown which has exceeded 33,000 volts and immediately sends the unit into a safety shutdown. In this case you would need to check the power supply regulation circuit and horizontal circuit for the failure. It could be as simple as the horizontal output transistor having failed to something more complex or expensive. Need to have it diagnosed for that to find out.
