    Our Sony KV 34HS420 is having a standby problem. We have never used the sleep/standby option. But lately, if you turn the TV off then decide to turn it back on it will go into standby/sleep mode. Then it's hours before you can get it to turn back on. I cannot find my manual. I've been thru the TV menu to see if there's something I can do there, but no luck. Help!

    I have an older Sony Trinitron. Its big and bulky and heavy compared to the recent models. But it has great picture and sound when it works. I got it repaired once for the same problem. Turns on and goes to standby. Paid a bundle. I see one fuse and the TV clicks loudly right in that area. So I'm hoping its the fuse. It blinks 38 or 39 times on standby before the red light goes off. I try to turn it back on by hitting the power button not once (because it does nothing) but on the second try it starts to do the same thing and nothing happens. Any suggestions? I'm going to Radio Shack to see if I can find the fuse. It looks caked in white. By the way when I opened the back of the TV it is just filthy. Do I need to get it cleaned ( perhaps this is causing it to overheat). Just asking. I know I should by a new tv. Its at least 15 years old. But don't have the money right now. Thanks.

Hello Nicrod,
Can you let me know how many times that light blinks on your TV? There would be a small interval between blinks and then big interval.

My sony trinitron television will not turn on. it will click and the stand by light blinks, but there is no picture. can I fix this?

It sounds that there is a direct short circuit in anywhere in circuit board. Most probably, it might be to vertical sweep output section, in Sony TVs. Here you noted that the standby light blinks. Blinking of standby light to Sony TVs are fault indications. Count it, and check this.

Sony 34 No picture or sound the standby lite just keeps blinking.

Does the ligh blink a certain number of times and the stop briefly and repeat the same pattern? If so you have a problem that is beyond your ability to service it and must be serviced by a certified sony tech.
