Question about Sony KP-53S70 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony 53s70 rear projection tv

When plugged in only the standby light is on. The power button will not turn the tv on manually or with a remote. I have the same problem. Only the standby light comes on, and it doesn't blink. There is no picture or sound. The TV controls and the remote control do nothing...

I would really like to fix it myself if possible. I can't afford to pay to get it repaired. If I can't fix it, I'll probably just trash it or give it away to someone else who wants to deal with it. I paid $350 for the TV, and it only worked for about 2 months.

Hi!! have you tried checking the main plug for it, as well as removing the cables at the back? chances are there are loose wires on it, if you only had it for two months then you still have the warranty for the product call sony's technical support

My matsui tv 28WNO5(A) will not turn on from standby


Try pressing the small reset button on the back, it works, and you will not loose any stored information which caused the unit to go in the stand by mode.

or
Have you tried turning it off for an hour and then turning it back on. This happens to me quite often and leaving it off for a while ususally allows it to come back on. Also have you tried to press the TV/AV button on the remote as sometimes it switches to TV mode when its on standby and then standby won't work as its on TV mode and needs to go back on to AV mode. Basically just press the AV button on the digibox remote and then try standby.

or
if the batteries are removed and left for about 20 minutes before being replaced again, everything works as it should.
or
if any of the above suggestions does not work then you have to open the unit and on the main board of the tv there is a thin mini tube light like component called fuse you will have to replace that fuse .the fuse is very very cheap and you can easily get it at any electronics shop.and if still the unit does not work then there is a major fault in the power supply board and should be taken to the service center for diagnosing the fault that it is repairable or not.but i hope the above information provided will definately help you to solve your problem.

Standby light blinking


If you can't turn it on with the on button on the tv its not the remote causing issues. Are you able to pull the back off it and take some voltage measurement readings/

Wont power on


some tv's always have standby light on, even iff you turn off by tv button. solution 1: with light on, press a number on remote. solution 2: with light on press stand-by button on remote. solution 3: with light on push the 'on' button on the tv set. solution 4: unplug tv set, wait a few seconds then plug back in, if no light then turn on tv using button on the set, and then channel number.

My LG TV red light won't turn on. although the plug fuse and the remote OK


Try manually pressing the power/standby button on the tv (side or bottom) the red light should appear, most modern tv's will turn on simply by pressing the channel up or down on the tv itself.. But unfortunately in most cases, this seems to be an internal surge and needs a professional to inspect..

No standby light


Depending on the brand and MODEL number here is what I think happened.

All TV sets have a Standby power supply. It runs all the time even if set is off but plugged in.

It supplies among other things the power (usually less then 12 volts DC to run the remote circuitry---It usually is not fuse protected so if a strike hit nearby it may have come in via the power cord.

Trouble is almost certain to be in the standby supply.

I have a hitachi 50 "plasma that was given to me


First do you see a light indicating that the TV has power? There are two power buttons on the TV (the main power and the regular power button). The red standby light will light up when the main power switch is on. This indicator is just to the left of the remote I/R sensor. You can find the main switch on the bottom front of the tv (it is under the tv forward of the stand). Turn on the Main power if it is not on. Then try the power button on the control panel of the TV again.

Does the standby light change color or blink? (Red is standby, orange is power savings (no signal), blue is on.) If the main switch is on and the standby light doesn't come on, the TV has a problem at the power supply. Try unplugging the unit for a bit (at least 30 seconds) and then plugging it back in. This will reset the internal circuitry. If you see a blinking light, then the TV is reporting a self-test failure. I do not know the codes for this model Hitachi Plasma TV.

The manual for the Hitachi P50H401 TV is available from Retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Hitachi-P50H401-TVs-manual/id/1233ci869/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the pdf.

I'm assuming you don't have one of the special versions that were intended for large audiences that were only controlled by remote (no control keys on the front of the TV). Remotes.com has the original remote or a substitute remote if you need it. See http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=13104063628240&smodel=P50H401&brand_pn=HITACHI_P50H401 .

I hope this helps.

I have lost the remote control now the tv will not turn on


The remote should not have any effect whether the T.V. turns on or off.
Have you tried to press the power button so that the standby light is on? On most Tv's the light should be red. Once the standby light is on press the button on the TV to change the channel, either the + or - button. This should switch the tv on.
