    My nephew repeatedly hit the on and off button and now my tv won't turn on. Hit the power button and it makes the noise, but the picture doesn't come on in the screen. The red light will continue to blink, but no picture. I paid a lot for this tv 3 years ago and now I have a huge paperweight. Help.

    sony trinitron tv kv-36fs200 manufactured 10/2002

    clicks but won't power on with remote or set button.

    No picture, no sound, no menu options.

    Upon plug in, standy light flashes about a dozen times before repeating cycles of 5 blinks like video.

    This tv was bought from mariners church on ebay advertised as working, but after bringing it home in backseat of honda civic (@50 mi drive) this is the situation. Have seen a few other posts of trinitrons that had same problem after a jostle or a move - did something shake loose? Other posted solutions have suggested that poor solder joints are the culprit: Am skilled with soldering, but need images of what to look for? If this absolutely has to a professional repair, how much are we looking at?

When I called the technician, I was told there is a voltage problem and that I need to have the circuit board changed at a cost of $420 plus tax and that this should clear the problem.

my trinitron wega 32" flatscreen standby light blinks 12 times when its cold then and turned off then back on warm 4 times, I believe this is self diagnosis and degauss time. You might want to try and move it away from any magnets, speakers , or take the back off and airdust everything, be careful while inside the cabinet, theres a high voltage present even when off, the thick red wire all by itself going to the plug on the middle right side of the tube is HOT. maybe try plugging it into a different surge suppressor or right into the wall too.

Hi my tv seems to be on standby/timer and will not come back on how do i get this problem fixed

It sounds that there is no communication with IIC bus with other ICs. Check whether the standby light blinks when you turn ON the TV by its Power Switch at it front panel. If blinks, count the number of blinks. Check this for more details about the blinking codes to Sony Wega TVs. If it does not blinks, make sure that the main system control IC has the fault.

Blinking of standby light in Sony sets are fault indications. You just count the number of blinks occur at a time, by switching the set ON-OFF by its front panel power switch, not by the remote control handset. Just do it for at least three or four times, count the exact number of blinks occurs there, and inform it to me through Fixya. Through the number of blinks, I can locate the faulty section, of somtimes to the exact fault location. Count it keenly and inform me. OK.
