Sounds like a blown capacitor. I fixed the same problem in mine by replacing it with this one:

If you can do a little bit of soldering, you can fix it yourself. Good luck!

Why does it turn on, remain on for about two seconds, then turn off?


sounds like maybe a blown capacitor on the power control card or something similar.
See the link below for repairs to this component, assuming that is what it is

Tv shuts itself off with in seconds,why ?


Dear Michael
May I ask you for a little more info on your problem?

SONY uses self diagnoses in all their television products, this code is indicated by a fast steady flashing of the RED standby light followed by a distinct pause in the flashing.

I need you to count the amount of flashes between pauses, normally between 2 and 11 flashes. Tis will help me to assist in determining what your problem could be.

Good Luck!

When I turn my TV on, it comes on and says 'no signal' then after about 5 seconds, automatically switches its self off... any idea why?


Most sets will shut down very fast if no signal at all.

If you can before it shuts off try to change input to one of the rear audio video inputs that has something connected to it and turned on.

Failing there and if using a box of some type for signal--unplug it and the set both for a while---plug back both and let each try to boot up.

A total loss of signal or a glitch with the set or a box can confuse the TV set's Microprocessor.

SOON AS I TURN MY TV ON IT SHUTS RIGHT BACK OFF


It sounds like a repair is required, but to confirm:

With this model, you can try unplugging from the wall for at least thirty seconds, then plug in and switch on. (That's if you haven't already).

If that doesn't work, there is a fault causing the power supply to self protect and shut down again. Repair will be needed.

Lcd tv shuts down by its self


All you need to do is remove the back cover, then remove the metal cover that covered the power supply. Watch tv w/o cover, it won't shut down again. Try it and post here if it works.
