TV turned off and wont come back

TV lost picture and have loud vibration sound. No picture but lamp light is blinking as well as the television chimes randomly on and off. Vibration sound is constant while tv appears to attempt to shut off and then on again.
Have no control with tv on/off button or remote to stop this. Had to unplug it. Came back 2 hours later and as soon as I plig it in it starts the loud vibration noise all over again.

Looks like the color wheel its bad in the set,color wheel its not spining at its proper speed( one of the segments may be broken)
thats the vibration you are hearing.. and the set its trying to turn on..until you replace the wheel you will be able to watch tv again.

Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi,
It is clear symptom that lamp is near to end of its wroking life and tv needs lamp replacement.
Please replace lamp in tv to get it back in business. Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual and its easy.
Please buy Sony original lamp for good picture.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

TV makes humming noise, lamp light is blinking, does not turn on


Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.

No picture or sound


Hi, your color wheel needs to be replaced, the bearings fail causing the grinding noise, the new ones use "air bearings" so they are supposed to last much longer, video-tek
