I began having problems with my receiver about a month ago. I would power it on and it would stay on for approximately 30 minutes and would go off. The length of time tha it will stay on has gradually reduced to the point that it goes off immeditely after you power it on. When you power it on "Main Vol." flashes accross the display. The unit is approximately 6 months old.

This problems u have 90% it is the tv Tuner signal board,that the board,where the imcomming broadcasting signal cables plug into it.This problems also 10% could be power supply board have dying capacitors parts.That the board,where the power a/c cord plug into it.Check all over the power supply board for capacitors are bulging ups on tops or puffing up on it tops.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy those refurbishes boards the tv Tuner signal board or the power supply board for the replacement.
No solution but just a warning. We had this same thing happen. They sent a repairman to replace the control board. Then did it again. Just before Christmas, the WATER started dispensing by itself. Luckily, I was nearby and heard it or the damage would have been extensive from flooding. They are now 'working on' getting a response from Thermador. I feel like this thing is just a homeowners claim waiting to happen.
Hi there...it is sounding like a backlight is going/has gone out...these can be proffesionally replacedat a repair shop...To self diagnose if it is the backlight take a flashlight and, with tv on and while on a tv channel and carefully form different angles look into the 'dark' part of the tv screen...if the/a backlight on a lcd tv/monitor goes out(even laptop screens) then u can still see a faint image with a flashlight(or without one with a good eye)....If you still see the (tv channel) image, then it is most likely a bad backlight......
I hope this helped you some, if it did(or not) please rate!...Thank you
the trans computer has seen a problem possible a bad sensor, or an internal problem, and puts it into a safe mode, or limp home mode , it wont shift , it will stay in 3rd gear, this way this reduces the possibility of further damage trans damage, when you turn the ignition off and back on it resets the tcm, my advice is to take it to your local dealer, they can diag your trans as they know the product, i dont advise pep boys, or discount auto parts.
I hope you have a service plan for this set. Most likely--the CRT"s are going bad. This was a VERY common problem for Sony sets of this age. the CRT tubes SHOULD last a long time...BUT Sony had a BUNCH of the tubes that had 'contamination" on the cathodes of the guns...and after a few years..this 'flakes off" and shorts out the tubes. There WAS a recall on these a couple of years ago, but I am not sure about it now. You will need ALL 3 tubes to fix this problem. If it was me...I would try and find out if there is any way to get Sony to cover it..., if the set is not more than about 8years old.
Three months ago I had the same problem. My wife paid over $300 for the
radio, the portable boom-box and subscription less than 2 years ago. Sirius
offered no help or discount on a new radio. Guess they follow the
Microsoft doctrine because they suggested I upgrade to a new radio.
feeling frustrated, I took the receiver apart, thinking that a stray
voltage on an IC ping maybe causing the problem. It was only a guess.
I don't even have a wiring diagram At any rate, once I had it apart,
I used a small flathead screw driver and drug it (lightly) across all
IC pins, possibly in an effort to drain the voltage. Please do this in
a low static area.
When I put everything back together, the
receiver worked. It's been working good the up until about 2 weeks ago,
when the same problem began again. I just finished the same process
and the receiver is working again.
I don't advocate this for anyone who doesn't know how to handle electronics.
I'm just very disappointed in Sirius for not admitting the problem and providing no discount for a newer model. I have a $10 clock radio that's 9 years old. Guess what, I don't have to take it apart every three months to keep it working.
