    sony bravia 32 in. tv model number KDL-32L4000 has a runaway sound that increases to the maximum and will not decrease nor mute. Unplugging causes a temporary reset. It flashes from channel 3 where it should be to channel 14 and back. What can I do?

    The tv is grounded with its three prong plug. Do you have another idea?

The button board on the TV where the power, channel up/down and volume up/down button reside sounds like the problem. They could just be sticky and dirty if you feel like attempting dissasembly and cleaning. Or you may have to replace the board.

Anything is fixable!! It sounds like there is a logic problem. Because the problem comes and goes, I'd first look at the 5V voltage regulator section and also for poor connections on the boards. If you could post the specific model number of your set, I can provide more detailed guidance.

Thanks,
Dan

I also have a Sony STR-D365. Volume control works intermittently as well as right channel. Works if I "wind" the volume control up and down a bit and then goes out again. I reset it and no change. Any


There is a wiper on the back of the volume control that varies the resistance through the switch to control the volume. When you move it back and forth you are scraping the oxides off the switch and making it work again. I suggest you either get some contact cleaner and spray the control from inside (where the wiper is) or just change out the switch.

Sony Bravia KDL 32EX400 stuck on channel one


It sounds that the main system memory IC has damaged. Before make it sure, just make a hard reset to this set, and check whether it helps you. To make it a hard reset, just unplug the AC cord from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 30 minutes or so.
If this do not help you, check and replace the main system memory IC.

Subject

Unable to Power On or Off the set

Symptoms / Customer Description
The symptom may occur while the TV is ON or in Standby.

1) If the problem occurs while the TV is in Standby:
The TV will not turn on via the remote or power button located on the set however after AC reset (i.e. unplug the TV for at least 30 seconds from the AC source) the TV returns to normal operation.

2) If the problem occurs while the TV is in use:
You may lose the ability to power off the TV or switch the video inputs however channel changing, adjusting volume, or accessing the menu may still be possible. After AC reset (i.e. unplug the TV for at least 30 seconds from the AC source) the TV returns to normal operation.

Sony has designed the BRAVIA Televisions to be CUSTOMER Software Upgradeable and therefore Sony will not pay a service claim on any issue resolved by a software upgrade. If a customer requests an update please refer them to the following website: http://www.updatemytv.com. If the unit requires the update, you may enter the customer's information in the website and a USB device will be sent to their address.
If a customer does not have access to the web please have them call the Sony Call Center Support line: 1-866-210-6333

If a customer reports either symptom above request that they unplug the set from the AC wall outlet for at least 30 seconds and then plug the set back in. This will reset the TV and it should work fine for several months. If resetting the TV does not resolve the issue the customer has a different problem and a service call by a technician may be required
