    Sony rear projection tv. Was working just fine and suddenly we lost the sound and picture together. When pressing the power button on the remote control we can hear the switching sound from the TV but no sound or pictures. The front standby light keeps flashing when power button is press.

    Please help.

I had a similar problem. Look for a burned/shorted out capacitor on the main board. (It is marked J-something I forgot), 10mm diameter ceramic capacitor, 1000pF 20k SON116175400
It is about 3-4" from the left edge of the main board (power supply side), near the middle of the board. It is close to a large transistor mounted vertically on a cooling plate. It is a special high-voltage capacitor, you can find it online. Check the large transistor - it may be damaged too (mine was ok). After installing the new capacitor I got good sound and really weak picture. I called a repair guy who found a bad chip - after 3 hours of looking. The TV works fine ever since. As I learned, in most cases all you need is a new $5 capacitor. If you had a good picture before, it is worth the "investment" to fix this problem.

    I found some more info I had written down. The capacitor's number on the circuit board is C514. Unusual, but Sony released no specifications for this capacitor. The 1000pF 20kV capacitor mentioned in my previous post was suggested by someone - and it works in my TV. Another suggestion I received later was: Sony model # 1-162-133-00, 390pF 2kV.
    The large transistor I mentioned in the previous post is the Horizontal Output Transistor.

My Sony Bravia turns itself off Stand by red light blinks twice.


If you bought it brand new from a dealer, I would take it back or have them come out and look at it. Less than a month old, it is still under the 1 year MFG warranty or the very best a 30 day one.

No Picture - Lamp Indicator Blinking


This may be the main power supply, or the lamp supply. This is providing that the new lamp is okay.

The service tech will swap out the modules to service the set.

Sony KV32s45 sudden failure


I really have to say there is no miracle cure for TV's I have 20years of experience in fixing TV's I don't suggest for you to try to fix this as TV's run on high voltage and you could kill yourself.

If you really cannot find a tech to check it for you the only thing you can try is to check for a broken fuse.

You Must Take Great Caution.

If you are a person that like to take things apart you may try to take the back off .
Start by disconnect the power cable and follow the main power cable inside , normally it goes where the main switch is located and there you should find a Time Fuse normally the value is around 2.5 amps T for time it should say on circuit board & on fuse.Check for a faulty fuse.If faulty replace with the same type fuse and before you plug it in put back all covers than you may try to put on TV.

If fuse is good than fit back cover and take to a professional.
