Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32HS500 32" TV
I'VE HAD THE TV FOR FOUR YEARS. IT WONT TURN ON BUT DOES MAKE ALL THE POWER UP SOUNDS. THE STAND BY IS BLINKING 7 TIMES.
I can't believe this problem is so common to this particular Sony TV. Happened to me the other day, too. "Pops" like it's going to turn on, but no picture or sound....only Standby light blinking 6-7 times, hesitates, then 6-7 times again. I'm nursing mine by not only turning the TV off at night, but pulling the plug out of the wall. It sits all night totally unplugged from the power source. In the morning, I plug it back into the wall receptacle and it comes back on. I tried this after about 4 hours one day and it would not come on. Seems it has to be turned off for a good 8 hours or so before it will work. This is just a band-aid, I'm sure. I am deciding whether to let the Sony service people come out and look at it. I want a ballpark figure to fix it before I decide to let them come out to I can make a good decision about whether to put that kind of money into it or buy a new TV altogether. I'm so disappointed after reading how common this problem is. I thought Sony was one of the best brands. I paid $1500 for this TV 5 years ago...it should last 10 years like my last one did.

I have been having the same problems for the past one month. I have been pushing the power button again after it stops blinking from the first time. I hope someone can find a better solution soon.

Mine started this yesterday and yes when I hit the button again it turns on too. My question is does it cost a lot to get this fixed?

My problem is similar. However if I hit power button again it comes on normally.

This symptom is usually caused by a breakdown in the power-supply circuit. in most modern receivers (transistorised and/or ic), it may also be caused by a breakdown in the horizontal deflection circuits (horizontal oscillator, pre-drive or drive circuits.). this is because the supply volatages for the tuner, video intermidiate frequency(VIF), video amplifier, sound intermediate frequency(SIF) and vertical output circuit are usually supplied by the horizontal output circuit. but if you are not inclined with this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck and happy valentine!
