Check whether the mute function is ON or not. If not, the muting section circuit inside has the fault.

I had the same problem and found out that it wasn't making a good connection inside the the Directv box.The box was changed and that solved the problem.

If the screen won't come on then the diagnostic will never show. The 4 blinks is an error code. If the set is older than 12 years then it doesn't owe you anything, you got your money's worth out of it. Average life of any tv from that genre is 8-12 years. It's time for a new set, or take it in for an expensive repair ( pending parts availability).

5 times flash light shows that your TV has white balance error. If you have basic knowledge of electronics, then adjust G2 voltage of tv. hope problem will be solved.

Try the audio out. Run the audio to a receiver to see if the audio is there. If it is, then I'd leave it hooked up to the receiver and save yourself some money. If there is not any low level audio out then I'd fix the set. The only Sony set I've ever seen that was not worth fixing was a 32" model from the early 1990's that had bad picture tubes after only 5 years. I am a Sony factory trained tech. Good Luck!

SOURCE: My remote worked fine, but suddenly won't work

Could be the IR receiver in the TV.
Make sure nothing is in front of the TV that would block the IR from receiving commands from the remote, I've seen customers put VHS tapes on the front of their TV that caused the remote to not to work.

Good luck

The motor on the volume knob could have gone... or the IR blaster or receiver. Do all the other elements work? Like channel, song skip, etc?

NAD C162 preamp quiescent noise level suddenly went up. Please help me diagnose?

If the noise is in both channels then you should look for something common to both channels. Capacitors are the likely cause, but some IC's might cause it. You say that the volume control doesn't effect it, if that is the pre-amp's volume control then the fault will be after that part.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

Hi there!
I think your remote may be at fault. Liquid spill or sweat from the hand accumelates on the inside over some time and then becomes sticky. Some of the buttons may be permanently activated. Then other functions won't work. Have someone check it for you or if familiar yourself. Regards, JUS004
