Your problem could be the Convergence board is loading down the power supplies and will not let the TV set come on, or the power/deflection board, part number AA94-08574A, or the STR type regulator IC, part number AA13-00105A. If you locate the convergence board, unplug the connectors, and see if the set will come on. if the set does come on, replace both of the STK convergence IC's at once. The part numbers for those IC's are STK392-40. You can get the original replacement IC's from MCM electronics for about 15 to 16 bucks a piece. Do not use the less expensive STK IC's as they are not the same. the replacement IC's should have the name of SANYO printed right on the face of the IC's. Good Luck

How do i locate a schematic of this tv? I probably know just enough to get me in trouble but i'm not in a position to hire someone to fix so it's either me or trash. I have the same problem but don't know which board is the convergence?? thanks

Hey technman,
Thanks for the instructions. In my case the power did not come on after I unplugged the connectors on the convergence board. Do I need to replace both the power/deflection board and STR type regulator IC or just one of the two?
Thanks,
Gonzagarules

When the timer light stoped flashing the remote control would not turn on the TV. The next time the light quit flashing I held the power button in on the TV for about 5 seconds and it came on and has had no problems since then with the remote or the local TV power button.

Tv wont turn on only clicks and then flashes red timer light


Well, I have found out that the number of red light blinks is a "blink code" that indicates the nature of the fault with the TV. Usually these are various failures of internal fuses or circuit boards. There's a fair amount of information on threads at techlore.com on this, so try searching there. Teh specific codes and manuals are usually it seems under license from Sony and not available for free to the public. Sorry!
