No picture or sound when powered up. Red Standby light flashes continually. My Sony KV 36 XBR250 Wega Trinitron XBR is about 10 years old and has worked perfectly up to this point. What could be the...

Did you get your set fixed or did you replace it? My same set did the same thing. Turned it off for 2-3hrs after watching it and when I tried to power it up- nothing but the sound it would normally make just before the major power up, sort of a relay click sound. No picture or sound but the red light blinks non-stop.

I cannot hear sound a notice apear there is no device installed

I had that happen to me once on my Sony Vio and had to re-install the original driver. That fixed my problem. That was 5 years ago, and I haven't had any sound issues since. Hope this helps...:)

Dell Inspiron SigmaTel C-Major Audio won't continue to work

if after reinstalling the operating system and the sound drivers you get the same problem then your sound chip is faulty,

dont know if there is a pcmci sound card but if there is, that would be your solution or else consider swapping the board

Sound is scratchy or doesn't work at all

What have you tried so far, specifically? From the description provided I would try two things. First, I would check on Dell's support site to see if there's a newer driver available for your sound card, as they update them fairly regularly in most cases. Assuming you have Windows XP, this link should get you to their audio driver section for your machine: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&osl=EN&catid=3&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=DIM_CEL_3000&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en Do you remember making any system changes from the time the sound worked last until it stopped? Maybe something was installed that caused a conflict with your sound card. Does everything appear ok in the Device Manager? (Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager) Nothing shows up with a red X or a yellow exclamation point?

No Sound!

Here is the download page for the Dimension 3000 (Windows XP): http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/devices.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&SystemID=DIM_CEL_3000&os=WW1&osl=EN Go to the audio driver page and assuming you have the built-in audio card this should take care of you. If you by chance have some other operating system here is the link that will allow you to select the correct one. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?
