Take out all the cables (HDMI,POWER,RCA,etc...) and then plug just the power back in and see if the TV turns on, and make sure when you take the power cable out, take it out from the back of the TV, when you plug it back in it should click. 
If the TV powers up then try plugging in your HDMI cables and see if that works.

My Sony Bravia TV - Model #: kdl-52z5100 no longer powers on. There's a red light that blinks twice whenever I attempt to power it on. Please help


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes


Hello,
the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

What are the comcast remote codes for Sony HT-SS370 home theater system?


If you have this comcast Universal Remote - Red OK/Select Button here are the codes Sony 11100, 10000, 11317

if this doesn't work use the search mode

Searching For You our Code
If your home entertainment device does not respond to the remote control after trying all of the codes listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for your code.
For example, after trying all of the codes for your TV, you still cannot get the remote control to operate your TV, then:
1. Turn on your TV.
2. On the remote control, press TV once. Then press and hold Setup until the TVTV key blinks twice, then release Setup.
3. Enter 9 - 9 - 1. The TV key will blink twice.
4. Press and release the digit 1. The TV key will blink twice.
Note: Substitute 1 with 0 if searching for a Cable code, 2 if searching for a DVD, VCR or PVR and 3 if searching for an Audio device
5. Press Power and aim the remote control at the TV and press CH + one or more times until the TV turns off.
NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control will send IR codes from its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code first.
6. Press Setup once to lock in the code.The TVTV key will blink twice.
7. To search for the codes of another device, repeat steps 1 to 5, but substitute the AUX key for the device you are searching for.
Checkcking the Codes
If you have set up the remote control using the Searching For Your Code
procedure, you may need to find out which five-digit code is operating your equipment. Perform the following steps after setting up your devices to find out which five-digit code operates your equipment. For example, to find out which code is operating your TV:
1. Turn on your TV.
2. On the remote control, press TV once. Then press and hold Setup until the TV key blinks twice, then release Setup.
3. Enter 9 - 9 - 0. The TV key will blink twice.
4. To view the code for the first digit, press 1 once. Wait 3 seconds and count the number of times the TV key blinks (e.g., 3 blinks =3) and write down the number in the left most TV Code box (at end of this section).
NOTE: If a code digit is "0", the selected mode key will not blink.
5. Repeat step 4 four more times for the remaining digits. Use 2 for the second digit, 3 for the third digit, 4 for the fourth digit and 5 for the fifth digit. Finish writing down the code in the TV Code boxes (at end of this section).

It can be a pain but once you get it down its a cake walk.

My mother in law just passed away and I inherited back the Sylvania LD320SSX I bought her last year. What is the 5 digit remote code for a Comcast remote? Tried all I could find to no avail.


Comcast uses at least 11 different remote controls. I referred to the manuals listed on their remote control page for instructions on programming the three Comcast-branded remote units:

Comcast Universal Remote (Red OK/Select button)
Sylvania LCD TV codes: 20000, 20035, 20043, 20081, 20593, 21593, 21781
Procedure:
  1. Turn on the TV.
  2. Press the TV button once.
  3. Press and hold the Setup button until the TV button blinks twice, then release Setup.
  4. Enter a five-digit code from the list. If this is done correctly, the TV button will blink twice. If you enter an invalid code, the TV button will produce one long flash and the remote control will exit the program mode.
  5. Aim the remote control at the TV and press the Power button. If you have the correct code, the TV will turn off. If not, repeat steps 2-6 with a different code.
If none of the codes work, you can try the code search procedure:
  1. Turn on the TV.
  2. Press and hold TV. Press and hold Setup until the TV button light blinks twice, then release Setup.
  3. Press 9-9-1. The TV light will blink twice.
  4. Press and release the digit 1. The TV key will blink twice. Press the Power key.
  5. Aim the remote control at the TV. Press CH+ until the TV turns off. You may have to press numerous times until the remote control finds the right code in its library. Stop when the TV turns off.
  6. When the TV turns off, press Setup once to lock in the code set. The TV light will blink twice.
Comcast Universal Remote (Grey OK/Select button)
Sylvania LCD TV codes: 0000, 0035, 0043, 0081, 1781
Procedure:
  1. Turn on the TV.
  2. Press the TV button once.
  3. Press and hold the Setup button until the TV button blinks twice, then release Setup.
  4. Enter a four-digit code from the list. If this is done correctly, the TV button will blink twice. If you enter an invalid code, the TV button will produce one long flash and the remote control will exit the program mode.
  5. Aim the remote control at the TV and press the Power button. If you have the correct code, the TV will turn off. If not, repeat steps 2-6 with a different code.
If none of the codes work, you can try the code search procedure:
  1. Turn on the TV.
  2. Press and hold TV. Press and hold Setup until the TV button light blinks twice, then release Setup.
  3. Press 9-9-1. The TV light will blink twice.
  4. Aim the remote control at the TV. Slowly Press Power and TV alternately until the TV turns off. You may have to press numerous times until the remote control finds the right code in its library. Stop when the TV turns off.
  5. When the TV turns off, press Setup once to lock in the code set. The TV light will blink twice.

Hi i have lost instruction manual for my total remote urc 11-4110 b02 Universal Remote could you tell me how to code it to tv manually please


@font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0cm 0cm 10pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } SET UP

The Search Method
If your device does not respond to the TOTAL CONTROL after you have tried all the codes listed for your brand, try searching for your code. The Search Method allows you to find the code for your device by scanning through all the codes contained in the memory of the TOTAL CONTROL.
To search for your TV code:
1 Switch your television on (not on standby) and aim your TOTAL CONTROL at your TV.
2 Press the TV key on your TOTAL CONTROL.
3 Press and hold down SET UP until the red light blinks twice. (The red light will blink once and then twice)
4 Press 9 9 1. The red light will blink twice .
5 Now slowly, alternate between POWER and TV, over and over, until your television turns off. You may have to press these keys many times (up to 150!), so please be patient.Remember to keep pointing the TOTAL CONTROL at your television when you press these keys.
6 As soon as your television turns off, press SET UP.
The TOTAL CONTROL remote should now be ready to operate your device. Turn your device back on and try all the remote’s functions to ensure they are working
properly. If some of the TOTAL CONTROL’s commands are not operating correctly, try the search method again. You may be using the wrong code.
Once you have Set-Up your TOTAL CONTROL, you can blink back your SET-UP CODE for future reference.
Example: To blink out your Television code:
1 Press TV once.
2 Press and hold SET UP until the red light blinks twice (The red light will blink once and then twice).
3 Press 9 9 0. The red light will blink twice.
4 For the first digit of your four-digit code, press 1 and count all the red blinks. If there are no blinks, the digit is "0".
5 For the second digit, press 2 and count all the red blinks. If there are no blinks, the digit is "0".
6 For the third digit, press 3 and count all the red blinks.
If there are no blinks, the digit is "0".
7 For the fourth digit, press 4 and count all the red blinks. If there are no blinks, the digit is "0". Now you have your four-digit code.Make sure you write your Television code for easy future reference.

Four blinks is a fan rotation error code which means one of the four fans is not operating properly. Check these fans and replace any found defective.
