Sony bravia tv keeps switching on and off


Could someone please help me my Sony Bravia tv keeps switching itself on and off every minute or so, had trouble with my cable services had to reboot it since then the tv has gone haywire. I have checked in my manual and it said to check the timer was not activated which it wasn't ,it doesn't even stay on that long for me to check any of the settings. Although it goes off the green light still stays on.

Hope someone out there can help me solve it.

Kind Regards

I had the same problem, seems to have something to do with the external aerial socket. I unplugged the aerial and had no more trouble (only a solution if you don't use freeview)

Sony bravia 46

Switch ON the TV, at least two times, and make sure about how many times do this front LED blinks, at one time switch ON. These blinks are fault indications. From the number of blinks occur, you can get an idea about the faulty section circuit inside the TV. If you wish to know more about the blinking codes and other details try this link. Pull up older posts there by its left side bar. Blinking codes to many brand TVs are given in detail.

Sony BRAVIA 32 inch

I had the same problem with a old Sony TV.

To find out if the problem is temporary
  1. Turn off the television.

IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.

2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.

3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.

4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

NOTE: 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.

5. Turn on the television.

If the light is still flashing the tv has stop working and you will need to buy a new one.
