Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL32V5500 32 in. TV

Open Question

I have a Sony Bravia kdl 32w5500 and it periodically switches itself off whilst watching programmes on one particular channel (WIN TV AUSTRALIA). It goes into a kind of sleep mode or something and sometimes also switches off completely. When it first loses picture, and sound, the green light is on and you can change channel and the picture and sound comes back but when you go back to WIN TV it again switches of picture and sound and eventually the whole set, if left on WIN TV. The remote channel select button can be used to switch the set on at his time aswell. The set is 15 months old and has done this since three months old and then it was dine for another 9 months and now it has started doing it again.

Most likely this is caused by a defective main board. Changing the main board will fix the issue about 95% of the time.

To be absolutely sure, the voltages need to be checked on the power supply. If they are not the values listed in the service manual, then you should replace the power supply instead (accounts for the other 5% of the time).

Hi Chris,
I used to have the same issues with my 32S3000 but I've managed to fix it by factory reset.
It's described in a different post here:
Good luck.

There may be a "Power saving" feature on the TV. Check in set-up and adjust time for auto shut off.

How do i restore factory settings to Sony Bravia KDL 32w5500?

The old standby for almost all Sony sets is with the set off:

Display, 5, Volume up, power

With set then on the display should show the tech menu

Press 8 and (set will display or should RESET in red, then press enter and it should (reset) turn green---this has been the standard reset on their set for several decades.

Sony bravia kdl 32w5500 doesn't switch on, only green light is showing


Try a mains reset on the TV.

- Unplug from the mains.
- Press and hold the power button (on the TV itself) for 20 seconds.
- Plug in a retry.

Unfortunately, failing this, you will need to contact the manufacturer or a local repair person.

Sony Bravia KDL-32W5500 no picture no sound

It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
Remember there are leathl Voltages inside TV's, and generally these days don't contain any "User Servicable parts" like in the "Old" days, instead Board Replacment is all that is generally done.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

Is it possible to tune the channels of an integrated freeview digital box within a tv to a recordable dvd player


However, i see what your trying to accomplish - being able to record the freeview pictures you recieve form the Sony inbuilt tuner onto the recorder.. whilst being able to watch a different channel..?!

Well, you cant. If your Recorder has an inbuilt digital tuner then of course this would solve your issues, whereas if it is purely an analouge recorder and your in an area that has switched over then youll need some new hardware unfortunatly,.

You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

For troubleshooting the retune procedure visit
