Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-34HS420 34" TV

1 Answer

TV turns on randomly

I have a Sony Wega Trinitron 27". This is actually my second. My first had all the issues with the TV not turning on and I recycled it. A friend of the family had the same TV, but was upgrading and offered it to me. I know this is going to sound odd, but it turns on at various times of the day. I notice the morning times mostly and the times so far range from 4:20-9:30am, no consistency, different every day including weekends. I also have come home to find it on. I have checked the "timer set" function multiple times and it is not on to the best of my knowledge and just in case it is, I have changed both timers to 2pm which has not affected the random turning on times. The previous owner only used it for DVD's and CD playing and has reported no anomalies like this one. There are no pets, the remote is kept in it's holder at night. It is on a surge protector and on very even and solid furniture. Would a factory reset of the TV help? If so can I please have directions to do so? Any thoughts as to what could cause this? I'd prefer to not have to remember to unplug it whenever it is not in use. Thanks so much for any insight!

    I have the same problem with a 60" Hitachi Ultravision.  I can't even find a timer in the menu or manual that says auto turn on or anything like that.

Problem with the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27HS420 27" TV WHEN TV IS TURNED ON IT SHUTS itself off in a second or two and a light on front blinks 6 times.

Most of the time this is caused by two ic chips on the circuit board, ic8001 and ic8002. These are components that can be replaced fairly reasonably. If you call a repairman it should cost 95-165 us dollars. However, this is just an educated guess. Good luck, Russmann.

Sony Trinitron TV takes multiple manual clicks to turn on.

If you mean the actual mains switch needs multiple cycles, it could be faulty.. does anything, say a power indicator, come on when the TV doesn't?
If the actual switch is OK, then you probably have a fault in the power supply section... often faulty electrolytic capacitors. U need service.

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.
