Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

When I turn on my Sony Trinitron (@ 2001) there is a loud honking sound that happens and its very annoying and my neighbors bedroom is right next to the TV. How can I stop it from doing this. I have the headphone jack in front hooked up to a wireless headphone attachment, but it was doing this noise when I had a regular headset hooked up to it..... and it does this noise when I don't have the headset jack in use. I turn it on and almost immediately it puts out this "HOOOONK". I know its from the thing starting to warm up, but I'd like to figure out how to eliminate this annoying noise. Sometimes for a period it will stop the noise, but I can't figure out what's different (setting, or connections, etc.)....... HELP!!

What is loud sound suppressoion

It is a dynamic range compression feature. Due to the widespread abuse of Dolby and other digital dynamic range features, normal listening levels may be interrupted by VERY LOUD explosions, etc. which may not only wake you up, if you fall asleep in front of the set but can make your neighbors very annoyed. To counteract this, a loud sound suppression feature, sometimes called "Late night listening" is offered to limit the loudest sound you will hear.

Sony Wega KV-27FS100 RANDOMLY Turns itself ON

You said around 4pm TV is switched on everyday. Check in menu options any on-timer and off-timer is changed. If it is not there is a problem in microprocessor section. EEPROM ic malfunction also shows these type of symptoms. But it can be done by Technical persons only. This is not a major problem. This is due to surge current and lightening like that.
