Your case is a pure case of component deterioration with added salty moisture build up which corrodes and makes circuit joints weak. the fault will only keep increasing according to the damage. here are some tips to help;

I would suspect you have a power problem. Voltage too low or high can damage electronics very quickly. Voltage spikes also can fry TV's. Your power company can help. Monster makes a complete power solution with sophisticated filters and a power supply regulator that will keep power within specs but you will spend close to $ 1000 for this solution. I don't think Humidity is the culprit but corrosion due to salt is another matter. If salt is the culprit then you are out of luck unless you want to install the kind of air filtration system used for a shelter from Atomic Attack.


Using the KISS principal I would check the power first.

My Sony trinitron model number kv32hs500 were is the


If you take the TV and lay it flat on its face, then you will be able to get the whole back cover off. Once the back cover is removed, and with the TV still on its face, there will be some a large circuit board sticking up in the air from what is normally the bottom of the TV. At this point you may want to tip the TV back onto its bottom (so the screen is showing again). Now, on the right side of the circuit board, near a couple things that look like large batteries sticking up, will be the two IC chips. They are about an inch long and maybe half an inch wide. They are only a couple inches from each other. Hope this helps you locate them.

Are they HD compatible? We recently upgraded our cable on our 32 inch Sony Trinitron Wega tv (bought it in 2004) and got the dvr/HD package but get no HD channels...help??


These units are not HD sets. So if you want HD sorry to say you will need a different TV. If you can live without the HD these TVs have a great picture thats as close to HD as a regular set gets.

Sony Trinitron 32" TV will not come on and stand-by light blinks


It cant hurt to try...

While I was reading some other post about this problem, one guy said to try using a hairdryer on the right side of the TV1.gif for a few minutes to dry out humidity, becuse the trinitron has some kind of feature that causes it to 'protect itself' when too much humidity is in the air.
Hmmmmm sounded silly, but we had nothing to lose and tried it.
Lo and behold, our TV is back on.
