Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS100 32" TV

1 Answer

My Sony Trinitron TV 1999 (KV-32V42) made a strange popping sound and I lost both the sound & picture. When I turn it back on, the two red lights on the front of the TV(standby/Timer light & Stereo light) come on, but no picture or sound. The red standby/timer light has been blinking now for four hours. The instruction book doesn't mention the standby/timer light. I have tried unplugging it and turning it off and on several times, but nothing helps. Still no picture or sound!

Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

There is a flashing red light on the bottom of the tv, and it only turns on for a second then turns itself back off...help


Then the problem is in the main power supply section and will need to be analysed by a technician; if you can find one for conventional TVs in your area. We are becoming rare.
If the set had been otherwise OK before this failure, I would recommend having it repaired since it will probably outlast any new flat panel set you might buy, they are not very reliable and service for them is expensive.
You can check for yourself by doing a search here at Fixya on 'LCD TV' and you will see a variety of makes and models with problems, many of them only a year or two old.
