Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-SW29M50 29" TV

Open Question

Sometimes right after I switch it on, and sometimes after several minutes of normal functioning, the red standby light starts blinkig and the language menu appears on the screen. Also sometimes it changes rapidly and randomly to AV channels, all by itself. It does not respond to the remote control while all these happen. I put the batteries out of the remote control in case that it was responsible for the above mentioned problem, but it still happened. I can only press the power button on the TV to turn it off. Please note that the TV is approx. 8 years old.

SOURCE: TV suddenly doesn't respond to Sony remote & power button on Satellite remote.

I am having the same problem with the "initial setup" screen flashing repeatedly/ intermittently. It's not a problem with the remote. In the research I have done online, it seems as though this is a common/known problem with the Wegas that will require a service visit. Apparently the problem is a defective receiver chip. The best thread I found is at: http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=15393&forum=34&start=0&select_page_number=1 I've seen some speculation that it is caused by windex or cleaning fluid dripping down when the screen is cleaned and corroding one of the internal components. That's not applicable in my case, since I always just clean the screen with a microfiber dusting cloth. So, I guess I will be calling a repairman and spending $$$ to fix as it is now flashing up so often as to be unwatchable. Ridiculous, I think, given that my TV is only 3 years old!!

SOURCE: remote control not responding

Perhaps you can try what I do when my KV24FV300 runs through channels and will not stop.  Hard to watch and remote will not work.  Nothing works but on and off from set. 

Sony Says:  Take all batteries out of ALL remotes that you use in any way for that set, VCR, etc.  ALL batteries out.  Turn TV off at set.  Unplug TV.  Wait at least 15 minutes then replace all batteries in ALL remotes.  Plug TV back in and turn TV on from set.

Maybe, just maybe it will work.  If it does not work why not call Sony, they always say that cannot happen but they have a solution for it.

SOURCE: tv doesn't respond to remote controller

This is caused by radio frequency and what i mean by that isyour tv unit is gettng confused with the crystals that control the connection between the tv and remote.The solution to this is to go to wal mart and buy a new universal remote and in the package should be an instruction manual to set the remote to the tv , First find your tv name in the pamplet,second there will show a code of the remote type it in and enjoy.

The bulb is a discharge type - it needs a very high tension to work. The role of the ballast board is to convert the low voltage DC current coming from the power source in a high tension DC current for the bulb. Unfortunately you were truly unlucky : when the ballast board died it sent a high tension surge thru the power source and from there at the other components on the mainboard - the processor couldn't handle it and got fried. So now when you try to start the projector this is what happens: the power source starts normally - the status light goes to green as it should; it functions normally so it powers the ballast board and the rest of the mainboard - the ballast works so the bulb lights up; the mainboard on the other hand remains dead because the processor is dead so no sustain signal is sent to the power source; without the sustain signal the power source goes, as it should , in an very normal stand-by - the status light goes to red.
The entire mainboard will have to be replaced - you can't replace just the processor, it's glued in there. This is going to be expensive so ask a quote before doing it.

If you take the back off you might find a couple of bulged electrolytic caps on the power supply board that need change, or just buy a new power supply at www.partstore.com

Model RE44SZ21D when I switch TV on it maks a whinning sound like a hard drive not reading properly and switches back into standby. Sometimes it will start, (normally if not tried for sometime) stays on...


hello john.
this is a late suggestion,but if you still have the set & the proplem
in existence.
then i suggest you check with the lamp---situated on the right hand
side ,two screws to undo--once in further two screws--pull back the
casing clean with a dry cotton cloth & with that clean the cooling
fan just adjasent to the case.+ remember to leave the tv on standby mode for 3 minutes before you completely switch it off ,as this helps to cool down the lamp the fan at rear still propels while the tv is in standby mode.--------ASH
