Question about Sony KV-32S45 32" TV
Had a thunderstorm the other day. Power went out but came right back. TV has cable box hooked to it. When I turned on the tv, only snow. Could adjust sound level though. I hooked up another tv to converter box and converter box and tv worked. Maybe Sony tv tuner got fried during power surge from storm?? Cannot change channel either with remote or on set.
Tried to hooked up with an air antenna. if you can not get any channel and just a white raster or snow, it could be the tuner get fried.

the tacticle (micro switches)on the front of the main chassis have most likely gotten wet at some time,I suggest replacing them all.

SOURCE: TV won't turn on
The set is in protective shutdown because a problem was detected. The 5 blink code indicates that the problem circuit. In this case it is the blanking circuit. Were there any indications of problems prior to the storm? If not, I'll need to lok up this one for the specifics. Do you intend to repair this yourself?
Let me know and I'll provide the details.

This is less a solution than a work-around, but it does work for me, and it is free or low-cost.
I have had the same problem on the same Sony (model KV-30HS420),picture fading out to green then black, then turning off by itself,after which sometimes the light blinks 6 times, other times it blinks 7times. This started about four years after I bought it, which is not adecent lifetime for a CRT TV. It would happen anytime from 2 or 3 timesan hour to 30 to 40 times an hour. After getting absolutely nowherewith Sony, which was completely unresponsive and unhelpful, and which refusedto stand by their product or provide any useful information, I wasgetting ready to buy a new LCD TV, any brand but Sony (never buyanything from them again), when on a whim I decided to try one last stopgap solution.
I put a fan up against the side of the TV, blowing into the vents. Ithas been 3 days now, and not once has the fading and shutting downoccurred. So it looks like the fading out and shutting down wassomehow related to heat, and the ventilation seems to have solved it. I don't know why it should be a problem now, when it was not the first fewyears. It is also a mystery why Sony has not been able to figure thisout, since it is clear from online postings that many people have thisproblem with this model. Give this a try and see if it solves theproblem for you.
