Either your TVs internal speaker or its sound output Ic has damaged. You can make sure about which part is damaged through the following sugession.
Just place your ear, very close to the TVs speaker side, and switch on your TV with its front panel power switch, not by the remote control. If you can hear a 'thumb' sound or 'HUM' sound, you can make sure that the speaker is ok. If you hear a 'HUM' sound as describe above, make sure that its sound output Ic has damaged. If the sound output Ic has damaged, sometimes you may not hear any sound at all too.
Connect the TVs audio out RCA scoet to an amplifier, if you have, and try to get the sound through it. If there is sound through an external device, make sure once again that the internal sound output Ic has damaged. Speaker can be checked by a torch cell, connecting its terminals to the two leads of the speaker, with two pieces of wire, just intermittent touch, you can make sure that it is ok or not.
To replace the sound output Ic, you must open your TV, and locate the sound output section inside it. It is easy, to do, just follow the speaker wire, and find it from which point from the main board it orginates. Somewhere near to it, you can loact this Ic.
Before replacing the Ic, just measure whethere there is voltage comes to its supply terminal or not. If there is voltage, and no sound at all, replace the Ic with same type and number without any doubt.
If there is no voltage comes to the input pin of that Ic, check the track leading voltage to that point, and find whether there is any resistor has opend or not. Ok

Barry, remove the back cover by removing the screws with an arrow next to them. The fuse is located on the left side as viewed from the back, where the power cord connects to the circuit board.

We just experienced the same thing. My daughter was watching TV and it went dead. We could not get it to turn back on. I'm guessing that this model Sony TV had a 13 year life expectancy. I offered it to a local technician who refurbs and sells TVs, and he wasn't interested. He said he doesn't mess with anything over 10 years old because it's too hard to sell. We just went ahead and bought a new LCD HDTV. It's a shame though. If someone were able to fix the old TV, I'm sure a nursing home or non-profit facility could use it. Our only other option is to pay $15 to have it recycled.

Hi there!

You have an obvious error state on the unit. You may want to try and remove the Line Transistors to check for voltage first. In the region of 145V(between base and collector. If the set then stays in standby you may have a vertical error. Also check 5V rail to the processor and suspicious looking components like caps. Good Luck,JUS004

These sonys are common for tuners. What are the channels you are getting?? Are they all in a line like 2-3-4-5-6?? 7-8-9-10-11- 12 -13?? so on and so forth.cold solder connections on the tuners are also a problem sometimes

Is this set attached to cable?? have you tryed another set in this sets place first??? if so then the tuner on the sets probably bad but make sure the signals good on another set and not just on a default cable station on the tv like channel 3 or 4 .If another set looks crappy too then call the cable company.. if its on an outside antenna(do they still use those LOL)then see what others in the area are getting for reception. sorry My friend I cant answer any farther till you come back with more for me in my questions.
