Question about Sony KDL32EX500 32 in. TV

1 Answer

Our Sony TV was turned off this morning. Now when we try to turn the TV on the standby button is flashing and we get no power to the TV. Our remote also is not working on the TV. Is there a reset button or something? We have tried unplugging it and waiting for a period of time with no success.

Mum pressed some buttons on amp now the amp wont respond to the original remote or the universal remote. buttons wont work, batteries good and lights up. is there a button that blocks ir signal?

Looking at the user guide it appears that the amp has a standby mode.

See not below on turning standby on. Question can you see the standby light flashing.

I would also suggest using function on the amp to remove any possible issues with the remote.

One would expect the system to return to normal operation by pressing the power button again. If not what do you see on the display.

Press 1 to turn on the receiver.You can also turn on the receiver using 1 on the remote control. When you turn off the receiver, press 1 again. "STANDBY" flashes on the display panel. Do not disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead) while "STANDBY" is flashing. This may cause a malfunction.

My sony kdl-46v3000 standby light blinks 5 times tv wont turn on

The TV enters standby mode when there is no signal for 30 seconds.
I searched standby using Ctrl+F and found this information. It seems you should be able to bring it out of standby using the power button on the remote. You want to make sure there is an input connected and if it is connected to a PC that the PC isn't telling the TV to go into standby.
Try pressing the input button and changing inputs once you press the power button and the Standby is flashing.
If this doesn't work you may need to contact Sony Support.

TV Turns Off On Its Own

Standby light flashing is error sign and shows tv got problem some where in its circuit boards.
You will notice 3 seconds long pause between red standby light flashing so count pause to pause and post how many times it flashing to diagnose problem of tv.

Sony Trinitron Wega Standby blinks & the TV won't turn on

Those 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.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

How to turn standby off

The TV circuit may have detected a problem within its parts. You may have to check some leaking capacitors in the board or loose solders or burned components just to make sure. Normally leaving the TV unplugged overnight should reset it.
